I like how "previous episode" is one of the anachronistic terms ;)

In terms of anachronisms on Downton Abbey (a show I otherwise adore) the one that really made me wince was when Anna said, ".... whatever!" to end a sentence. "Whatever" (which I hate, anyway) has only been in popular use (at least, in the US) during the last ten or so years. I believe it was "invented" by so-called Valley girls - young women in Southern California.
