Frasier

Season 10 generally

Factual error: There are many factors concerning Niles' post-operative state which are very inaccurate. After open heart surgery it takes at least three months for the chest bone to heal, Niles would not be able to drive a car for weeks, nor would he be able to lift or twist which he does on the show. Also, he doesn't sport a scar. Your chest bone begins very high up, just below your neck, his scar should have been visible on numerous occasions.

The Club - S2-E18

Factual error: When Frasier goes back to The Club to talk to the president about giving his membership to Niles, the butler comes over to offer him an 1896 port. But the bottle is actually a Baul Madeira, not a port. (00:19:40)

Back Talk - S7-E10

Factual error: This episode takes place on Frasier's birthday - Martin had ordered a copy of the newspaper published the day Frasier was born and it is sitting on the dining room table when Daphne glances at it and says "Queen Elizabeth's had another baby." - in the Episode The Late Dr. Crane earlier in the same season, Frasier was mistakenly reported as dead on a local TV news show. The dates for his life were shown on the show as 1952-1999. The Queen, in fact, did not have a baby in 1952.

Rooms With a View (2) - S10-E8

Factual error: Niles' room is filled with flowers. Flowers are strictly forbidden for cardiology patients because of the high risk of infection. Niles being rich and all that would not change the fact that no flowers are permitted whatsoever - they could kill him.

Mother Load (2) - S9-E13

Factual error: Simon, having just been kicked out of Frasier's apartment, is trying to convince Roz to let him stay at hers. In the background the set shows a wharf area with at least one tall ship, Alito's Restaurant, Pier 45 Shed A, and Fisherman's Grotto. These are all located at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, not Seattle.

The Two Mrs. Cranes - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: The guy who plays Clive in this episode has one of the most appalling accents I have heard. He's apparently from Manchester, but sounds like a sort of cockney South African. His accent slips around all the time; it's very poor. I wouldn't normally submit it, but his is so shockingly bad I doubt anyone would be fooled into thinking he was British.

Suggested correction: First, not every single person from one area sounds the same. People can be influenced by a parent/other family members from different areas. I am native to the Southern region of the USA, but one of my parents is Northern. I have been told that I don't sound like a stereotypical Southerner. We don't know anything about Clive's family. Second, I have seen quite a few movies or TV episodes with actors whom I know to be actual British people, and Clive doesn't sound much different than any of them.

I am English and believe me that accent is the worst example of English I have heard in my life.

Trivia: The producers were careful not to put stools in Cafe Nervosa, in order to distance it visually from the eponymous bar in "Cheers."

Show generally

Question: Counting his role on Cheers, Kesley Grammar has played Fraiser for twenty years. Is this the record for the longest portrayal of a character by a TV actor?

Answer: It equals the record of James Arness of "Gunsmoke" for the actor who's played the same part on TV NOT in a soap opera. If you include soaps there are two main contenders - William Roache, who's been playing Ken Barlow in "Coronation Street" in the UK since 1960. Don Hastings has been playing Robert Hughes in US soap "As the World Turns" since 1960 as well.
