Weekend in Bangkok with Two Olympic Gymnasts - S3-E1
Revealing mistake: When Alan falls off the ladder you can see the ladder has been set up so it will fall back safely. As the ladder goes back towards the balcony rail, it hits the railing and bounces up. The bottom of the ladder, which is unseen, seems to be planted as it does not move during this. When Alan was climbing up and down the ladder, it wasn't secured with anything at the bottom. Thus the reason for him falling off the ladder. (00:03:35)
Suggested correction: Greg was the guy with the boat. I don't think they ever said his last name. Herb is the Dr. Two different people at two different times in the show.
The mistake is correct. The character of Judith's then boyfriend, and then eventual husband and then ex-husband, was named Greg Melnick (played by Ryan Stiles) in season 2. He actually first appeared in s02e02, "Enjoy Those Garlic Balls." Later, when he became a reoccurring character, his name was changed in the show to Herb. Although one could argue Greg was his middle name the whole time. There was another character named Greg in season 4.
This is correct. Although it's never referenced once his name has changed to Herb, about having a boat.
