As a kid growing up in Green Bay, WI, I could always tell when the stations hired voiceover guys from Chicago to do their station IDs because all the stations had secondary transmitters in the Upper Peninsula. The Chicago guys invariably told us those were located in MariOnette, MI.


Shelwood, when I was growing up in the Upper Peninsula one of our favorite games to play was "take a drink whenever the voiceover guy pronounces the name of a city incorrectly." Marinette, Ontonagon, Sault Ste. Marie, Baraga, Escanaba, etc.

The best was when they obviously tried to sound it out before saying it on the tv news. :)

Sometimes I think it's a hazing ritual... the established local newscasters don't tell the newbies how to pronounce some of those place names on purpose. Our local station once put on a talking head who referred to "Oh-DIE-or-Nee" Point... too bad it's pronounced "OH-Dee-Orne". I've lived in this state most of my life and had some trouble figuring out where she was talking about.

Anyone who watches The Mentalist knows that Cho is one of the most stoic hard-ass characters currently on TV. Which is why it's one of the greatest things ever to see Tim Kang bust up laughing at a flubbed line in this outtake.

Star Trek has produced some good bloopers too. Of all people, Robert Beltran (Chakotay) had some funny ones - I find myself wanting to quote the "ship it outta here!" one, but no one will know what I'm referencing!

*raises hand, waves, dissolves in giggles* Is it sad that I instantly knew which one you were referring to? Without rewatching the link?

Which reminds me, in the vein of seeing guys playing stoic characters crack up, IIRC about half of the great Voyager outtakes came from Tim Russ/Tuvok. MissMoneyBags's clip contains the great "I ain't going in there" bit, and the one where he dies very over dramatically, all over his console. Because of him, and Stargate's Chris Judge, I have a very special place in my heart for actors who give such good deadpan yet are actually huge goofballs offscreen.

My favorite outtake ever is from a Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode; I forget exactly which one, but it's one of the Hercules movies. Crow's line is supposed to be "I hate movies where the men just wear shorter skirts than the women." In this take, Trace instead says "I hate movies where women wear shorter skirts than..." and as he trails off on realizing the mistake, Kevin Murphy immediately makes Tom say "I love movies like that!"

I think you're right, SVNBob. When they showed the clip on Weekend Update in slow-mo, I seem to recall Henry turning towards the camera for a second before continuing the sketch. (From what I've heard, Henry is such a trooper, he probably would've finished the sketch even if his injury had been life-threatening.)

Sometimes random stuff happens on live tv, especially in WWE. Recently, a mouse upstaged Raw!

Some of the Weather Channel anchors have major problems pronouncing the names of towns in Texas and Oklahoma. So far I have heard Kee-oh-wa (for Kiowa) and Montague County being pronounced Monta-cue.

In a recent episode of Glee, Artie took Quinn, who's in a wheelchair after a car accident, to a skate park where they get to ride around in their wheelchairs. Except that there's a very large, noticeable palm tree in the background, something not likely to be seen in Lima, Ohio, where the show takes place.

Not only that, but there is no Six Flags in Ohio, so that's a pretty huge fluke as well.

That really threw me. They've even mentioned King's Island before so I didn't understand why they didn't just send them there.

My fave shows now consist of Game of Thrones, Vikings, Arrow, Once Upon A Time & CSI (original flavour). I still try to catch the Vampire Diaries and Glee for old times sake.

Isn't Cedar Point in Ohio? I thought that was a Six Flags.

Cedar Point and King's Island are part of the Cedar Fair group of Amusement Parks along with Knott's Berry Farm, Michigan's Adventure, Canada's Wonderland, and a few others.

There was a Six Flags in Ohio until 2004, when they sold out to Cedar Fair (Kings Island owner). The park closed and the land was sold in 2008.

Whenever they're playing "Amok Time" from the original 'Trek, I keep an eye out for Leonard Nimoy causually leaning against a wall in a long shot of the ceremonies, I think when T'Pau is talking to Kirk about being Spock's challenger.

On the Australian infotainment show The Project, one of the hosts got tongue-tied while saying, "QANTAS customers."
