The Day After: Robert Dawson
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

Sure? Your Blu-ray version is the one under EAN 4-010884-253290? Robert Dawson *is* listed in that profile, but he's not credited on-screen? So I should remove this from the list?

Yes, i have the Blu-ray Edition with that EAN. Cast and Crew in that profile were cloned from a different DVD Edition with 4 Parts as it was televised some days. Maybe there are more credits.
On my Edition are only credits for the main cast & crew (without "Robert Dawson") on the opening of part 1.
You can watch these credits on youtube
Part 2 has no credits at all.

It means: i have no idea whether different editons have been released with more detailed credits especaly end credits

Defiance --> Bob Dawson as Special Effects.

No specific role, but it's the only special effects credit so I think it's safe to list him, just like you did with the similar credits in this thread, but I leave it up to you if you list him.
