Frasier

The Club - S2-E18

Visible crew/equipment: During the closing credits, Frasier is sitting on his couch with a platter of meat beside him. Eddie is sitting up and begging for it and while he is doing this we can see the distinct shadow of his trainer's hand and arm against the couch. The hand goes higher and Eddie waves his paws higher and as the hand goes down, Eddie lowers his paws. Eddie keeps his eye on the trainer during this whole sequence. Once Frasier gives Eddie the platter of meat, the shadow disappears.

The Gift Horse - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Frasier and Daphne are sitting talking in the sitting room, Frasier stands and the camera angle shows the fake wall above the fireplace - you can see the flue and that the wall stops just over where the shot normally finishes. There is visibly no proper wall behind the fireplace, you can see clear through to the construction behind.

Bad Dog - S5-E18

Visible crew/equipment: When Frasier is getting ready to leave his booth while Bulldog starts his show, through the door on the left we can see a fairly thick white cable suspended in the air. It is visible for a couple of shots, but when Frasier opens the door to leave, it is gone.

Three Faces of Frasier - S7-E21

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the end of the show, Marty and Frasier are sitting in the living room talking. Eddie is curled up right next to Frasier on the couch. There are a number of shots focused on Frasier and Eddie and on the bottom of the screen one can see something flick by a couple of times - and in one shot there is definitely a couple of inches of a grey metal pole of some sort, about the thickness of a broom handle.

Guns N' Neuroses - S11-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Daphne is yelling from the kitchen door about Marty not storing his gun properly we can see pole-shaped shadows passing over her head on the shelves behind her. These cannot be explained by the actor's movements.

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.

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.
