Nice to see Chess Pains wag it's tail a little in this poll, even though there was only ever going to be one winner.

MC raises a good point though. Don't all you Ham Radio devotees get bored of it after a while? For a classic episode, it's the one that stands up to the least amount of repeated viewing IMO.

What do other people think?

I don't get bored of Ham Radio, never have... but I don't watch it very often. I've seen it about 10 times in the last two-and-a-half years, so it still seems very funny on every watch. And I don't see why people would get bored of Ham Radio, anymore than they would, say, get bored of 'The Matchmaker' or 'Daphne's Room'. It stands up very well to repeated viewings in my opinion, much better than a lot of episodes do anyway.

My brother for example, who is a self-confessed Frasier hated, even admits that 'Ham Radio' is a great episode.

Little note here - as we all expected 'Ham Radio' has emerged the outright winner, but it's still got a lower percentage score and one vote less than 'Moondance' managed. Maybe it's popularity is slipping slightly?

''Ham Radio'' has gone up in my estimations since I saw it a while back, it's still not a top ten for me, though.

Yeah, pretty much. I've seen it maybe twenty times, and I still laugh at it more than any other episode.

Would you say it's the 'Frasier' episode you've watched more than any other?

Not wanting to go to off-topic, but which episode of anything (comedy or drama) would you say you've watched the most?

I'm not too sure what episode I've watched the most of any series, for Frasier it's split three ways between My Coffee With Niles/ She's the Boss and Daphne's Room.

I've watched a Spin City epsiode, Dick Clark's Rockin' Make-Out Party 99 so many times. Though I refer to it as the one where Stuart's done for harrassment.

Hmm...some others but probably for another thread

The Frasier episode I've watched most is probably "Travels With Martin" - 30+ times, easily. "Ham Radio", "The Good Son" and "Author Author" follow.

Of any show? The Simpsons' "Simpsoncalifragalisticexpiala-D'oh-cious" - probably 100 or more times over the past nine years. :oops: Others that are high include "Wizard of Evergreen Terrace" (Sky showed it tons in 1999) and "Homer's Barbershop Quartet". Of other shows, only Christmas specials - and maybe Scrubs' "My Old Lady" - come close.

Not sure which Frasier episode I've watched the most times - 'The Two Mrs Cranes', 'Dinner Party' and 'Death and the Dog' perhaps. 'Cape Feare' for The Simpsons, which I must have seen almost 100 times - I loved it long before I knew who Kelsey Grammer was. And I've seen a Doctor Who episode called 'Love & Monsters' at least 25 times, despite it only airing last June!

I don't think I could watch 'My Old Lady' on a regular basis - I think it'd marr the impact of it for me.

I would say the Frasier episode I've watched the most is The Adventures of Bad Boy and Dirty Girl (having watched it again this morning) but Room Service, Sleeping With the Enemy and Goodnight, Seattle are close on it's heals.

Of all my TV watching though, I'm not sure what I've watched more than anything else. Possibly the M*A*S*H episode when B.J. first arrives. I've seen that at least 100 times I'm sure. Or maybe WKRP's Turkey's Away.

Good question Cakey, ''Flaming Moes'' easily tops the list. I've seen ''Goodbye, Farewell And Amen'' a heap of times, same goes for ''Loves Labour Lost.''

I know you said that you found episodes less enjoyable on repeat viewings Strat, but I'm guessing that's not the case with the three you mentioned above? Good call on 'Flaming Moes', genius episode.
