Much as Axl and Gaia try to overcome Idun's shanghai by announcing their engagement, the oracles press the reality of their inability to truly be together anymore. Michele begins to chafe at living in Mike's manly apartment, Ty (with Anders' help) tries too hard to reconnect with Dawn (triggering an unpleasant memory instead), and the flatmates have a tree growing in their living room to explain in their coming flat inspection.

However it happened, the third and final season's use of the British rules of abbreviation were abandoned for the American rules of abbreviation in new songs appearing under Soundtracks. As a style choice throughout the series, the first names of composers are consistently abbreviated, with a name such as John Adams appearing as J Adams (under British rules). "Oh My" as the opening theme song fell under the grandfather clause and, once created, always followed British rules, but other, newer third season songs appeared under American rules, whereby a name such as John Adams would appears as J. Adams (with an American abbreviation period). See more »


As of the end of Season 2, Anders' apartment has a blue wall around the fish tank; however, during Season 3, the wall suddenly has a dark wood finish around the fish tank. There are also a number of other changes to the decor of Anders' apartment, despite no time having passed between the end of Season 2 and the beginning of Season 3. See more »
