The Final Countdown - S4-E2

Character mistake: When Moss is actually on Countdown, the host calls Moss' opponent "Jeremy" once, when he asks how long his word is, and again when he asks him for the word. Moss' word is longer and the host remarks that Moss will probably win, and apologizes to the opponent but this time calls him "Jonathan." (00:01:49 - 00:02:30)

Suggested correction: He says Jermey. However, I do know Netflix's closed captions says "Johnathan", but that's not a character mistake for the show.


I'm not referring to closed captions on Netflix. I'm talking about what the host actually says out loud. He says Jeremy first and then "Sorry Jonathan" later.

I know what you were referring to. I listened multiple times and he says "Jeremy" every time.


Roy: Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Calamity Jen - S1-E2

Question: In this episode, there's a commercial about "999" being changed to a ridiculous long number. While I get why it would be funny, was there some basis for joke itself? Like, was there talk about the UK changing the emergency number or something? Or is it just completely random. And when Roy says "how hard is it to remember 911, I mean 999", is this just a joke for American viewers to understand what 999 is? Or do British people say or use "911" too?


Answer: It's a joke on the "118" numbers in the UK. 118 numbers were used for directory enquiries and adverts for them on TV always tried to give a way to easily remember one for a particular company. The fake ad in the show takes it to the extreme. People in the UK do not use "911", the point of the joke was that Roy had forgotten "999" while saying it was easy to remember.
