Trying to find the common name for the Producer/Writer/Director/Actor.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0849964/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Tapert
http://www.tv.com/robert-g.-tapert/person/27650/summary.html

The CLT results are all over the place.

I have 11 of these credits, so I can verify those, but there's a lot of T.V. ones for Xena and Hercules that should be confirmed as well. Also, with how many weird editions there’s been of The Evil Dead and Army of Darkness, maybe people could double check their copies as well?

There’s also a buttload of region 2 profiles for Xena (mostly) and Hercules that have titles in the country’s native language, which I didn’t list here, simply because I’m unsure if there’s an original title or not.

I’ll try to keep this as “non-cluttery” as possible, but with the different localities and different titles, you might have to bear with me while some are sorted.

Here's the breakdown according to the CLT:

Robert G. Tapert – 57/169 (1 Verified As Correct So Far)

Sliders: The Third Season: Disc 4 (U.S. Locality): The US-Box contains bonus episodes from "Earth 2" and from "Cleopatra 2525". According to the profile he is credited in the episode "Quest for Firepower" from "Cleopatra 2525". "Rob Tapert" as "Original Material By" and "Executive Producer".

American Gothic (TV Series): "ROBERT TAPERT" as "Executive Producer" (I checked the pilot episode, episode 2, 11 and 21 to be sure, because imdb lists "Robert Tapert" for the pilot and "Robert G. Tapert" for all following episodes) (German RC2-Box, 4-020628-982386)

Thanks SpaceFreakMicha for checking multiple episodes! Very much appreciated!

I also put Sliders down as confirmed, although I'm not sure if by your post I should have or not. Were you just giving more specific breakdowns of where he appears on the disc, or were you actually able to confirm the credit? Sorry if I'm being dense!

No problem.
I don't own the US-Box of "Sliders", but since he was worldwide not credited in any other "Sliders"-profile nor on imdb.com I just looked in the US-profile where the credits where entered using dividers. And he only was credited for the "Cleopatra 2525"-episode.

Bottom line: Someone who owns the "Cleopatra 2525"-series needs to check if he really is credited as "Rob Tapert" there or not, because I don't own it (and I don't own the US-"Sliders"-boxes, just the german ones that don't have these bonus episodes).

Crimewave is Robert Tapert, this fresh from an audit of UPC 4895033738206 I did a couple weeks ago. The title screen of this version says "The XYZ Murders" if that matters.

I also double-checked I had with him (I have Robert as common locally) and can re-confirm most of the already confirmed stuff. It's just pretty when everything is what it should be.

Okay, so I think I got all that updated. So confusing with the tv credits. 

Removed the confirmed credit for Sliders based on SpaceFreakMicha's second post.
The Xena credits for Robert G. Tapert are added as incorrect.
The Xena credits for Robert Tapert for Seasons 1 - 3 added as correct.
The Xena credits for Rob Tapert for Seasons 3 - 6 added as correct.
The Xena credit for The Complete TV Series, in lieu of the confirmed credits for the seasons, added as correct to both Ropert Tapert and Rob Tapert.

I wanted to cut out the credit for Xena: Warrior Princess: Director’s Cut as well based on the above confirmation, but it's in a language that's foreign to me, so I can't determine which season it comes from. 

I also currently left the credit open for Xena: Warrior Princess: Season Two – Part 1 (Australian locality, as actor) because it comes from one specific locality and there he's credited as an actor, not producer/exec producer.

I think that covers it. If anyone is seeing anything that I'm confirming incorrectly, please let me know. I'm confusing myself here!

Awesome, thanks for double checking your copies and posting the screencaps!!

So basically if DJ Doena can verify the credits for Hercules, we're pretty close to figuring out a common name (anyone actually own Cleopatra 2525?  ).

If anything, this shows that a ton of stuff was apparently (I'm assuming) imported from IMDB, as he's listed as Robert G. Tapert there, and then spread like friggin' wildfire as all but one of those credits have been confirmed as incorrect.

Thanks again to everyone who's helped out in this thread! Muchly appreciated!

Glad to help 

For me it's the best way to deal with the common name to post a capture since it's 100% certain, that's why I think that your idea of a sub-forum for the CN (in the contribution one) is a great one.

Hope Ken Will create it when he will have some time.

I bet it's the DC of the final two episodes of the 6th season "A Friend in Need".

You guys seriously rock!

I've updated the original list (I also included Hercules: The Legendary Journeys: The Xena Trilogy verified as correct by Ace_of_Sevens as all three episodes contained on that specific profile come from Season 1 of Hercules, which was verified as Robert Tapert).

I was also able to confirm one other credit myself.

Messengers 2: The Scarecrow - Rob Tapert as Executive Producer.

(I'm working on Boogeyman 2 at the moment).

I do believe you're correct. The actor's listed in the profile for that disc correspond to those episodes, but since  Ace_of_Sevens rocked the house, that's confirmed now too.

Seriously, thanks again for so much help here guys!
