    We learn early on that Ichabod Crane died in battle in 1781. He then mentions he's 250 years in the future, but if that were the case, the year this show would be set would be 2031. But I'm sure I heard Abbie or someone else say it's the current year 2013, which would mean Crane was only 232 years in the future. Looks like there's a major goof somewhere.

    lol. I think maybe they're just having the characters round down and say 200 years into the future for a round number rather than say 235 years each time

    Then why couldn't he say he's over 230 years in the future? That number rounds off enough from when he "died", close enough to the present year.

    You know what this man is so handsome it's ridiculous! He could say he died 500 years ago, and I wouldn't care. Let's just enjoy it!

    I don't understand why people make such a big deal out of those tiny things? Omg so it's not the exact number, who cares? People who nitpick about stuff like that need to chill. It obviously isn't that big of a problem since it hasn't interfered with the show thus far.

    Even more glaring was his referring to American Indians as "Native Americans". I doubt anyone living in 1780 ever heard of that appellation.

    He meant that he is 250 years old now. He was about 30 when he died then and so, he has been here for 250 yrs!
