Bly Manor has North American early 20th century push button light switches and sockets throughout the building despite being set somewhere in Essex, England. Buildings electrified in early 20th century England would have had toggle switches and round two pin sockets. By the 1980s, when the series is set, there would have been modern UK sockets and switches if the building had ever been rewired. Henry's office and Peter's flat have the correct UK switches.

Show isn't terrible, wasn't great either. Nowhere even close to the brilliance of Hill House. Problem is they marketed the show as horror, which it most certainly isn't. The show is about love and despair. So people tuning in hoping to get Hill House heebie jeebies are going to be very disappointed, myself included.
