BN, give your vote to 'My Coffee with Niles', then we go off Stu's ratings and then you close the poll. Then 'Ham Radio' doesn't win.

Can I tempt any more people to vote?

Well, 'My Coffee with Niles' got my vote. Which, by the looks of it, makes it even at the moment...

Hooray! Who'd have thought it... I expected Ham Radio to be riding right out in front by this stage!

Ham Radio is finally being knocked from its perch! BN will be celebrating!

Indeed. If we closed the poll, 'Ham Radio' would have to take the silver spoon.

How many days has it been open for? It seems a little premature to close it now.

No, I was just joking - although I'm sure some members would be in favour of bending the rules a little.

But if you win by cheating, then you're not really winning, are you? :wink:

I'm hoping someone will come and give it another vote.

Yeah, I can see MCWN getting my vote this time around. Glad I waited!

You're going to keep this poll open longer than 7 days aren't you? After all, it is the 'ultimate' poll! And as others have said, it will be a hollow victory for any episode that beats HR if the poll only lasts 4 days or something!

I reckon you'll have 30-40 votes after a fortnight or so - this will attract lots of 'casual' interest from people who wouldn't usually post.

My Coffee With Niles the best episode of Frasier??? Surely not! It's a good one and is certainly rewatchable, but as a sitcom episode certainly not as funny as the mighty Ham Radio.

Although to be fair, plotwise, it probably contributes more to character development and drama than any other single 20-minute episode.

And Niles' response to when Frasier asks him THAT question is genuinely hilarious, but there are several such moments in Ham Radio, which is why it gets out-performed as a sitcom episode.

Just out of curiosity, how do you change your vote in any poll that is? I just ask in case I should want to as I heard some on the forum say they're going to change a vote sometimes and what have you.

However, my vote stays here for My Coffee With Niles.

I don't think you can change your vote. I think it's mostly a case of "I would change my vote if I could".

HR is decent enough, but MCWN is certainly better to me. It may not have as many deliberately targeted moments of laughter, but it's more cleverly written for my tastes and more rewatchable. If i was going purely for out and out laughs, i'd have probably voted for Daphne's Room then Shrink Rap.

it's a mighty list of episodes. There's only Back Talk i'd consider weak, even though i did vote for it.
