Hi,

This is my first time on a forum but hey a first time for everything..

Please could someone tell me if I was the only one who found the continuity of this programme frustrating? At the start of the programme Mr Fry is in New Orleans with a broken arm in February and yet finishes the episode sans broken arm in January. I do not like to be treated like an idiot, unless, of course, the programme was filmed over more than a few months, in which case I apologise.

Wow......I think it took something like 6 or 7 months to film, somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.

I cannot be awake for nothing looks to me as it did before, Or else I am awake for the first time, and all before has been a mean sleep.

Yeah, something like from Sept 07 to Apr 08, if not longer. It was quite the marathon filming.

Ok. I appreciate that it took a long time to film but still... Wasn't anyone interested in how it happened?

I think he should have mentioned it as part of the programme. Unfortunately, I do not have time to read everything but thanks for letting me know.

He does mention that 'unfortunately [I've] broken my arm' in reference to not being able to participate in some activity.

Yeah...its a break in continuity but things happen during a long shoot.

But yes he fell off a boat while shooting footage for Last Chance to See.

I used to be EternalStudent on these forums until the switch over. So don't get excited..I'm not someone new and exciting. I'm just me :P

He filmed the first leg of the America series September-December. Took a break for the Christmas holidays than went to the Amazon to film the first part of the Last Chance to See series and broke his arm. Then he filmed the rest of the America series, QI series F and Kingdom series 3. Now he's travelling around Africa before moving onto other countries filming more of Last Chance to See.

Assuming direct control...
