* Jake states that he is 32 years old in the pilot. If his age and the birth
date on his passport is accurate, then the series is set in the year 2009.
* Jake's birth date on his passport is 21 January 1977, but it is likely a
fake. Eric's birthday on his driver's license is 21 September 1977. It is
unlikely that only eight months separated their births. However, if Jake is
32, then the series is set in the 2010s. (Despite the fact that people
thought that Jake was younger, it is revealed in Episode 12 that Jake is the
eldest son.) Though not canon to the show in the commentary of the episode
Vox Populi as seen on CBS internet, executive producer Carol Barbee states
that Jake is the older brother of Eric at time index 4:52. Also at time
index 6:29, Carol Barbee states that the 1990 song Nothing Compares 2 U was
a hit when Jake was 16, therefore putting the date of events seen on the
show roughly in 2006.
