Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Having proven itself a worthy Thursday night successor to Cheers in Season 1, and an able opponent for ABC’s top-rated Tuesday night hit Home Improvement in Season 2, Frasier entered Season 3 with a full head of steam -- hot on the heels of its second straight Emmy for Best Comedy. By the time the last Season 3 episode aired in May 1996, Frasier had added 24 uniformly superb episodes to its growing legacy, ensuring the third of what would be a string of five Best Comedy wins. This season, Frasier's writers took us deeper into the peculiar psyche of Dr. Frasier Crane Kelsey Grammer, the psychiatrist we’d all come to love from his boffo buffoonery on Cheers. The season begins with a bang, as Mercedes Ruehl joins the cast for a five-episode arc as Kate Costas, Frasier’s new station manager and love interest. Frasier immediately butts heads with her in the season opener, only to see his beloved talk show yanked from its time slot by Kate. When Frasier realizes his true feelings for Kate in "It's Hard to Say Goodbye if You Won't Leave," he discovers she has been offered another job. Niles David Hyde Pierce doesn't fare much better with his romantic entanglements when his wife, Maris, throws him out of the house after he stands up to her in "The Last Time I Saw Maris." The Niles-Maris separation story line will continue throughout the next three seasons, eventually allowing Niles to get closer to the woman he pines for, Daphne Jane Leeves. Niles even gets a kiss from Daphne in "Moon Dance": The Emmy winner for the year’s best-written half-hour, it is a bittersweet episode in which Niles's date gets sick and he asks Daphne to accompany him to a ball. The Crane brothers' rivalry is also played to hilarious effect this season with episodes such as "Shrink Rap," in which the brothers attempt to go into practice together; and "Crane vs. Crane," which includes a courtroom showdown where the brothers take opposite sides over a man's sanity. Slapstick ensues when Frasier attempts to help his agent, Bebe the wonderful Harriet Sansom Harris, stop smoking in "Where There's Smoke There's Fired"; Diane Chambers Shelley Long visits to tout her new play about "losers in a bar" in "The Show Where Diane Comes Back"; and a Christmas visit from Frasier's son, Frederick, is almost a disaster when the wrong gifts are shipped and Frasier must take to the mall to salvage the holiday in "Frasier Grinch." And of course, in true Frasier fashion, uncredited stars such as Carrie Fisher, Billy Crystal, and Jodie Foster all lend their voices to Frasier's talk radio self-help show.
