Roz in the Doghouse - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: About 1/3 through the episode, they are in Roz's apartment. If you watch when people enter or leave the apartment, the door has a handle lockset. It also has a lock cylinder about 1 1/2 feet above it on both sides of the door. The problem is, the side of the door has no drill hole where the latch assembly should be: it's just solid wood. The lock isn't attached to anything that would enable it to work.

Suggested correction: This is not a mistake. Often tenants install deadbolts and vacate without leaving a key, and it is quite common for the landlord to just remove the bolt assembly and patch the edge of the door. By leaving the lock in place, the landlord avoids having to replace the door, or repair a large hole through the door with 2 finished surfaces. If Roz had actually used a key in the lock, THAT would be a mistake.

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.

Dark Victory - S2-E24

Other mistake: When the power outage occurs, Daphne claims she can't cook the steaks, however, the cook top in the kitchen is gas. They have matches as shown by them lighting the hurricane lamps.

Suggested correction: In episode 6:02, Frasier's Curse, Niles finds Frasier's head in the stove and is worried. Frasier responses "I was cleaning it, Niles. It's electric" The matches seen in episode 2:24 were more likely used for candles (like for Frasier's bath), not the oven, because it's electric.

The range is gas burning. You can see the grates and burners indicative of a gas cook-top. The comment regarding the matches wasn't used as proof the range is gas, but merely to point out they had the ability to light the gas cook-top (to avoid someone correcting the mistake by saying maybe they had no matches). The mistake is valid. In s06e02, the cook-top is still gas and one may want to submit a character mistake for that episode because Frasier says it's electric when we see it's gas. However, if one submits the mistake, be prepared for someone to correct the mistake by pointing out that dual fuel ranges exist, so the oven could be electric and cook-top gas, Frasier has an electric oven and gas stove, or Frasier was simply lying.

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.

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.

A Day in May - S8-E23

Question: Beyond the obvious (he hasn't gotten over it or is still upset about it) is there a reason Martin didn't want to say anything at the parole hearing? And what was the point of showing this?

Answer: While he hasn't gotten over it, he also took into account what the shooter's mother said. He refused to make a statement either for or against him. He can't forgive the shooter, but he's gotten past the anger.
