The Dixie and Twilight shows always had a loose relationship with time. Major events that were years apart in real life happened right after another in the show, but in general they showed things a couple years after they happened in real life. Long enough ago that they weren’t fully remembered by the viewers, but close enough that it still felt like the shows were set almost in the now. The commercials claimed that they were showing us the real stories of yesteryear. They made a few mistakes though. The Ford Mustangs the gang drove in New Orleans weren’t released until a year after the beginning of the battle that ended Twilight season four. Numerous other product endorsements like the phones they used met similar fates at the hands of cyber nitpickers of the time, but modern audiences never notice. Everything is just Pre-Space old to our eyes.
