Frasier

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)

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.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: He has a scar in season 11 episode 8. When he's naked in the cafe. A scar just like my dads from heart surgery.

While this mistake points out many different factors, I don't think this should qualify as a valid correction. The mistake is saying in season 10 he doesn't have a visible scar when he should and the correction points to seeing a scar a third of the way into season 11.

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.

Fathers and Sons - S10-E22

Factual error: When the barista hands an umbrella to Frasier's guest we can see she is wearing platform flip-flops. Health code in Seattle forbids open-toed footwear for employees in food service establishments, which would include a coffeehouse.

Selling Out - S1-E9

Frasier: Roger, at Cornell University they have an incredible piece of scientific equipment known as the Tunneling Electron Microscope. Now, this microscope is so powerful that by firing electrons you can actually see images of the atom, the infinitesimally minute building blocks of our universe. Roger, if I were using that microscope right now, I still wouldn't be able to locate my interest in your problem.

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.
