    Monica was a chef in various levels throughout the series yet always seemed to have mornings, afternoons, nights, weekends and holidays off. 10-12 hour shifts are not out of the norm and are more the average. Do that math and compare it to how much free time she had.

    You know I love Frasier, the character, and especially the show. And after my second watching through it I made this same realization. Frasier was a TERRIBLE father when you consider everything. I honestly think they should've retconned the son/birth out when they had the chance. It's not like you had to stay completely true to Cheers for the Frasier series.

    486 beers over 2 seasons. Presumed to be 2 years is substantially less than a beer a day assuming not leap years. 730 days. Even if he has the same deal at Gary’s. Less than 3
    beers a day? Not a ‘problem ‘ drinker. I have about 3 per day. And make it to work practically every day I’m supposed to.

    My God this is supposed to be a "comedy channel" with funny statements and/or jokes. They are talking about "situation comedies" (sitcoms) that were on TV in the '80 & '90's as if they were Reality shows 😖! THEY WERE, AND ALWAYS WILL BE FICTION! In a sitcom a week could be a day or a month in our Reality. They were a means for real people, who worked all day at a shity job, to come home and forget their problems with a few laughs to help us relax and forget about our day. So we could get some sleep before we had to go back to work or school the next day. Your generation needs to chill out before you all have a stroke before you're 30 🙄✌

    I’m about to fight against a joke, but here I go; before there’s an invitro conception, they run a set of tests like pregancy test and when they implant the cells in Phoebe’s uterus any mediocre MD could tell if a woman is pregnant by seeing the uterus so close

  • Leisha Young
    Leisha Young Month ago

    Okay, as a lover of Frasier, I have to agree with this, however, the show only gives us a snip-it into Frasier's life, I think we're supposed to think that he frequently makes the journey over to see his son, and vice versa - it just isn't in the show. Which is good, because Fredrick was a really annoying character. I mean, if you're going to put a kid in an adult show, PLEASE make them likeable.

    Alright, I've fan-girled the fuck out of this, so now I'm just going to go and rock back-and-forth for a few hours. LOL!

  • AnthonyMazzarella
    AnthonyMazzarella 2 months ago +2

    Actually the math exonerates Norm. 486beers÷(365 days per season×2 season) = .665 beers per day or 2/3 of a beer per day or two beers every 3 days. That's not that bad. Certainly that's not the most healthy habit but that's not the kind of alcoholism that they're describing. Now I understand that he also goes to other bars so let's say that he goes to two other bars at the same frequency that's two beers per day. Again that is high but actually still with recommended serving limit by the CDC.

  • rogermurph101
    rogermurph101 2 months ago

    So Norm has 243 beers per year? If he limits himself to one per day, that means 8 months out of the year he has one beer a day. Or put another way, he has about four beers in an average week. So if he goes to the bar every day, he’s milking one beer most of the time and drinking nothing the rest of the time. Sounds like a raging alcoholic to me.

    XD As a writer, let me say this in defense of all these shows: timelines are hard, man. Like, really hard. I was once writing a story and didn't realize until halfway through that, because of messed up timelines, I had implied my protagonist sired his son when he was eight years old. Man, the amount of re-writing I had to do to fix that one...
    Time. Lines. Suck. Monkey balls.

  • Tximino M
    Tximino M 3 months ago

    About the Cheers thing, 486 beers in two years aren't really that many. Assuming he's gone to the bar the same amount of days both years, and that he only takes one beer every time (so there's your explanation as to who's driving Norm back home. Norm is, because he has only drink ONE beer) it means he's gone to the bar 243 days every year. The year has 52 weeks, which means 104 fridays and saturdays (days he would most likely be there), that leaves only 139 extra days to go in a year, and assuming he goes the same amount of days every week, it means he goes 2.6 more days every week (which isn't close to be EVERY SINGLE DAY as you said).
    And that's if we're assuming that whenever he's at Cheers he only takes the one beer, which, I'll admit, is unlikely (specially if he goes on a friday or a saturday and has friends there). And yes, he's known in other bars too, but again, he probably doesn't go to Cheers that often, I mean... for real, he may only go to cheers two days a week and have an average of 2 or 3 beers every time, and that covers all the beers and leaves him enough time to be known in at least one other bar. And even if he only goes there to have one every single time (because he's weird that way), he could still go to have one beer once a week in a different bar and be known there as well.

    Simple solution to the Cosby show... Clair lied to everyone about her age.
    More math, "I couldn't go to my prom"... 15 year olds don't have a prom. Usually prom is for juniors and seniors. But some schools only have senior prom. The fact that she said " my prom " as if there was only one would mean that she was a senior. Making them like 3 years apart.

    The Cheers bit, isn't that less than 1 pint a day? My Dad downed at least 3+, if Norm's an alcoholic he wouldn't miss a day. Just as the Friends were all coffee addicts is it a shock there were alcoholics in Cheers? 100% funnier than my Dad.

    Perhaps a better title would be “When Sitcom Writers Can’t Do Math”. And even if they could, I could forgive the writers of stuff like the Cosby Show for not realizing their ages didn’t line up; that takes a bunch of different numbers mentioned at various disparate parts of the show years apart to realize it doesn’t make sense, and writers have higher priorities than crunching the numbers to make sure these one-off numbers work. All you needed to know is that it was Cosby’s wife’s birthday, or that Norm had racked up a gigantic running tab; who cares exactly how much? And I wouldn’t be surprised if the Friends writers didn’t care when the season starts; you can chalk these up to whoopsies.

  • Bradley J
    Bradley J 3 months ago

    Cosby Show: It wasn't normal for a younger girl to be dating someone a little older even decades before this, and weirdly enough, it still happens in 2019.
    Cheers: 486 beers in 2 years isn't even that much. People deal with shit in their own way.
    Frasier: Every episode wasn't every single day, and considering he's a therapist, no one's perfect and he clearly couldn't look at his own situation and be logical.
    Friends: The Christmas-related episode and the one where they ask her to carry their children could've been a solid 2-3 month period. Unless there's significant events that connect to that particular episode, it could be anytime.

    I love Fraiser. I did determine that Fraiser may not be the best father, he isn't exactly a dead beat dad. He does see Freddy more than 9 times throughout the show, there wasn't always an episode about it. He mentions having had Freddy visit or having gone to visit Freddy and he had just returned from his trip, especially when Freddy was younger. Seems like when he got older, he didn't see him as often.

    The worst part about the whole "those babies were Phoebe's" is that she knew they were hers, it killed her to give them up but she did. Even more worse, her brother and his wife had to have known that Phoebe was having the babies way to early for them to be viable, and yet they came out healthy. They had to have known they were their babies but they took them from Phoebe anyway, without saying anything.

    The Cosby show was ruined mathematically in episode 1 season 1, when His wife, Clair, asks," Why do we have four children?" He responds, "Because we did not want five." Let us count children, Sondra, Denise, Theodore (Theo), Vanessa, and Rudith (Rudy) that's five kids, Sondra was added half-way through season one. Cosby show mathematically ruined.

    The Frasier one is a little if-y. I had a friend that lived with her mom in Pennsylvania and her dad lived in California. She would go out to see him for a week or two in the summer and that was about it. She didn’t have a super close relationship with him but she did have one and didn’t hold any ill will towards him. Plus he could have visited more in episodes we never saw. Just saying that one isn’t actually terrible.

    Though by math, over two years, Norm drank 1 beer a day for 480 days? Umm that's pretty low for norm. I expect him to drink 4-5 beers a night, and that's if he's pacing himself (remember he's there for like 12 hours a day, not just 1) Actually quite a few check on his state of mind a bit, try to help him get back together with his wife and others. But yeah he's a alcoholic... But the math is lower than you expect.
