A Favorite Episode of Frasier-Moon Dance




The best episodes of FRASIER for me, in terms of Niles and Daphne, were the ones where they were not yet together. His lusting and her obliviousness to it worked so well. In this one, she teaches Niles how to tango for a society event and when his date backs out, she gets to be his partner. Will never forget his eyes when he saw her in that red dress. Love this show. There were so many great episodes to choose from.

Patti - Frasier was a good show. I always liked the brothers' dynamic.

There are some shows that will replay in reruns nearly forever. My top contender for favorite Frasier episode is when the brothers take over a restaurant, Daphne "prepares" the eel, and Roz's hair "explodes." As for the episode you mention, the writers clearly decided to take advantage of the two actors' great dancing talents.

I loved the first few seasons. I think it had jumped the shark by the time Daphne fell in love with Niles. My favorite episodes involve Frasier's amoral manager, BeBe, described by Niles as "Lady Macbeth without the compassion."

Deb's right about BeBe. She was as cold as an icicle. But my favorite FRASIER episode is still "The Ski Lodge."

The writers obviously liked writing cold women when you think of Maris, Lilith, that woman Niles was involved in for a year, and any number of the women Frasier dated. There are so many great episodes--but yes, mostly in the first five or six years.
