Battle of the Seasons - Episode 18

Postby Cake for Brains » Mon Apr 30, 2007 4:11 pm

I have to confess that I'm pretty happy with the way these polls seem to be going, so I thought I'd go on right ahead and start off the next one. I think we got 22 votes for one of them - which is a personal record for me!

You know the drill by now - vote for your favourite 18th episode from the eleven seasons.

The poll will remain open for a week.

Happy voting!

Ham Radio or War of the Words? Hmm... tough question!

Sorry to be boring and predictable here, but there's one clear winner. The Season 4 masterpiece that seems to win every poll in the history of polls - 'Ham Radio'. I expect this episode to dominate here!

'Chess Pains' and 'Roe to Perdition' are great eps though!

Ham Radio. Best episode ever!

Chess Pains is a worthy 2nd place.

Can only be Ham Radio, Chess Pains 2nd and even The Club sneaking into 3rd with perhaps War of the Words bringing up 4th.

Most of the episodes here are pretty decent, with one glaring exception!

I went with Chess Pains, which makes my top 20 all-time list. Rob Greenberg wrote some of my favourite episodes and this is a classic.

Of course it makes no difference. We ALL know what will win this poll!

I went with 'Ham Radio' despite being quite bored of it now. But there's nothing else on that list that comes close. It's a fairly dismal selection!

He has good reason. Ham Radio is an awful, awful, AWFUL episode!

And yet I voted for it.

Thought about throwing a vote to Hot Pursuit just to take some of the stress off of Ham Radio but Ham Radio it is!

Although I love Chess Pains, Taps at the Montana, And the Whimper Is......, Bad Dog (my favorite Bulldog episode), Roe to Perdition and Hot Pursuit.

This was a good set for me but again, had to go with Ham Radio.

This is the most one sided poll since it started.

I actually went with Chess Pains. An underrated episode IMO, which (I'm very very sorry if i upset anyone) just beats Ham Radio for me. I find it great from start to finish, whereas after numerous watchings the beginning to HR bores me a bit.

I love Ham Radio, don't get me wrong, but I thinkit's over rated. So I went with one of my favorites Chess Pains(I love season 3).
Wow, between school and basketball, when am I...going to be able to watch Frasier!!! Oh, don't worry I'll make time.

Yay! Wholeheartedly agree with every word of that!

Bloody Ham Radio...

A little game - what percentage score would everyone give War of the Words?

About 65%-70% for me - nowhere near as bad as it's reputation suggests.

65% for me.

There are several on my list that rank below it. It's not something I will seek out but if it's on, I won't avoid it. I rather like the scene between Freddy and Niles in the kitchen.

I don't quite cringe like some do at the "spell his ass off" line but it is rather ridiculous!

I gave it 35% on the R&R section, which was quite generous compared to Jocelyn's 30%! :lol:

Stu also revised his rating down from 62/63% to 45% I think. By far the lowest score he's given any episode in his capsule reviews.
