Show generally

Continuity mistake: Frasier is based on the character originally created on Cheers. In Fraiser, he lives with his father who is a retired police man. On Cheers, Frasier once mentioned his father was a scientist. It's also worth noting that in one episode of Cheers, John Mahoney, who was to later play Frasier's dad, turns up as a pianist. Frasier also said on Cheers that his father was dead. When Ted Danson made a guest appearance on Frasier, Frasier admitted that he had lied about his father since the two had been arguing so much.

Jack's Revenge

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Across the show, Marty is supposed to be about 21 years older than Frasier (he turns 65 in season 5). There are at least two problems with his age - Frasier is supposed to have been born in March 1952 and in Season 5 (Roz and the Schnoz) Marty mentions going on shore leave as a single guy in 1952. Even if he was confused about the year, Frasier didn't call him on it. He must have done just a short stint in Korea as he was already a cop when he met Frasier's mother - they met at a murder scene, and he must have been 20 years old at the most. She was already a full fledged psychiatrist.

Revealing mistake: The elevator doors in Frasier's building are just a wood looking board with no safety edge sensors on the doors. These are required to detect an object between the doors. Yet, when a character touches the edge of the doors, they open back up.

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.

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.
