I tend to notice subtle things when watching TV and movies. Maybe a boom microphone that has dropped into the frame. Maybe the commercial that is on the TV partially in view behind the actors.
While watching Prison Break on FOX this past week, Michael Scofield [Wentworth Miller] steals the cell phone of FBI Agent Alexander Mahone’s [William Fichtner] ex-wife to get his number. While scrolling through the contacts in the phone, I think I see something. I asked Mrs. Gustafsson, “Did you see Ovechkin’s name on the phone?” Through the power of the greatest invention after Hockey and Beer, I back up the TiVo and pause on the frame containing the cell phone contact list. Here are the names listed (obviously the first names were changed to protect the innocent):
- Adia Weight
- Adrianna Kopitar
- Agatha Ovechkin
- Aidan Kotalik
- Alex Mahone [The FBI Character]
- Ally Vazquez
- Amy Crosby
- Andrea Staios
Someone in the cast, crew, production or writing group loves the NHL.
