Battle of the Seasons - Episode 21

Postby Cake for Brains » Sun May 06, 2007 12:12 am

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 21st episode from the eleven seasons.

The poll will remain open for a week.

Happy voting!

The final stretch...

Some real classics here, particularly in the earlier seasons. A really tough decision - I was torn between 'Travels with Martin', 'An Affair to Forget' and 'Daphne Hates Sherry'.

In fact, I'm so unsure about what to vote for, I'm going to sleep on it and cast my vote in the morning.

Not sleeping on it after all - I've decided to give my vote to 'Travels with Martin'. Brilliant Season 1 episode. The Winnebago scenes are a true joy!

'Travels with Martin' - perhaps the ultimate Frasier episode. A perfect mix of the highbrow Crane brothers and the down-to-earth Martin and Daphne, highlighting how the two attitudes clash but also how it works for them.

In fact, its only weakness is the fact that there's not much Roz, but she wouldn't really fit in to the main storyline so it's not fair to hold it against the episode.

My Dad saw a bit of this episode when I was watching it on DVD once, and he said something like "is it always this good?" - high praise for a man who hardly watches any telly comedy that isn't Fawlty Towers or Blackadder.

I'm still waiting for the day my Dad says something positive about 'Frasier'! :(

I voted for Travels With Martin as well, although I loved An Affair To Forget, Where There's Smoke, There's Fired, Daphne Hates Sherry and Roz and the Schnoz.

Has he actually ever seen an episode?

Heheh, maybe it'd be better just to not expect it, then it can only be a pleasant surprise if it ever happens! ;)

An Affair to Forget for me. I think the sword fighting is really cool. And it's hilarious.

I voted for Daphne Hates Sherry, but I could have picked any from the first 5 seasons and I have a real soft spot for The Three Faces of Frasier too.

I almost voted for An Affair to Forget but chose DHS for the 'Sherry' factor. Plus it was the final (and best, IMHO) episode contributed by star writing team Chuck Ranberg and Anne Flett-Giordano.

Yeah, bloody good batch.

"Daphne Hates Sherry", "An Affair to Forget" and "Roz and the Schnoz" take 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Had to go with Daphne Hates Sherry.

I love Travels With Martin and An Affair to Forget but Daphne Hates Sherry does it for me if only because DHP looks oh so sexy in those Tennessee Whites!

Plus the scene in the bathroom is done so well! Cracks me up!

LOL! For the first time, this is actually a DHP is sexy episode! KCH is only a positive side effect! (A VERY positive side effect, but a side effect nonetheless!)

Honestly, it's the only episode in which I feel the need to turn DHP straight!

The producers certainly knew what they were doing there, didn't they. This remains a firm favourite with the fangirls at you-know-where. It doesn't stop me voting for it though - I think it's a great episode!

I think it borders on criminal that a superlative episode like An Affair to Forget has only 1/13 votes so far. :shock:

Just shows how tough the competition is this round.

I almost went with AATF but TWM is one of my firm favorites. Still, the fencing scene remains one of the best Frasier moments ever.

This is a toughie for me.

Travels with Martin is very good, but does remind me a little too much of my own childhood, and hence is uncomfortable to watch?

The Gunnar episode, is also fantastic and the climax is one of the best.

As you probably know the Smoking episode, is one of my favourites, as it is done so accurately and Bebe is one of my favourite characters.

Are you being served - A classic Niles episode.

My vote eventually went with An Affair to Forget for those final few scenes :lol:
My fine is over £700 !! (",)
