Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
In Season 2 (1994-95), Frasier -- the show -- emerged from the Season 1 battle against its formidable time-slot rival, Home Improvement, as the premier Tuesday night sitcom, with five Emmys, including trophies for Best Comedy and Best Actor (Kelsey Grammer). As for Frasier, the character…well, after nearly a decade on Cheers and a decade still ahead of him on the series bearing his name, Dr. Frasier Crane would seem in his midlife prime here. In fact, these early Frasier episodes, many of them magical gems, remain among the best the producers have committed to the TV canon. "An Affair to Forget," for instance, plays to one of the show's early strengths, as Niles (David Hyde Pierce) goes into a hilariously neurotic lunge-and-parry campaign when he suspects his wife, Maris, is having an affair with her fencing instructor. "The Matchmaker" served as an early high-water mark in the representation of gays and lesbians on television and won a GLAAD Award in the process, as Frasier tried to fix up his father's live-in nurse, Daphne (Jane Leeves), with the handsome new station manager (Eric Lutes). The station manager, of course, turns out to be gay and is under the impression that his date is with Frasier. Nathan Lane earned an Emmy nomination for his turn as Phil in "Fool Me Once, Shame on You. Fool Me Twice…." Phil, it seems, has stolen Frasier's briefcase and goes about Seattle masquerading as the radio shrink. Old pals from Cheers show up in Season 2, most memorably in the two-part November sweeps stunt episode, "Adventures in Paradise," wherein a run-in with Lilith (Bebe Neuwirth) complicates Frasier's romantic getaway in Bora-Bora. Mayday Malone (Ted Danson) drops in, too, desperately in need of counseling after getting cold feet on his wedding day. This occurs, obviously, in "The Episode Where Sam Shows Up," which also features Téa Leoni as Sam's betrothed. Guest voices who call in to Frasier's show this season include James Spader ("Slow Tango in South Seattle"); Lily Tomlin ("The Unkindest Cut of All"); Alfre Woodward ("The Botched Language of Cranes"); Betty Comden and Adolph Green ("Burying a Grudge"); John Lithgow ("Someone to Watch Over Me"); and Shelley Duvall ("Dark Victory").
