Yeah - for me, there are funnier episodes than 'My Coffee', but not many that sum up so beautifully what the show is about, and its superiority to every other live action sitcom going.

On a semi-related note, does anyone find that sometimes you vote in a poll and then a few weeks later the results no longer come up at the top of the thread, but the voting options come up again? I'm sure this has happened to me a few times when I have voted and then the options become available again...

No, I've never known that! :shock: I don't think it's a case of simply deleting the cookies from your PC either, as the votes are registered against usernames.

I'm inclined to think you're just mistaken, and have perhaps not voted in a poll you thought you had?

Interesting though...

It's a great ep alright, and I'll happily give MCWN my vote here if it has any chance of winning.

I wouldn't rule out the possibility that I could be mistaken and as you say it may just be that I think I voted... I will consciously make note of the next few polls I vote in and get back to you if I do turn out to be right.

Maybe you weren't logged in? I sometimes do that - come across a set of voting options that look familar and that I thought I'd voted in, but then look at the top bar and realised that I'm not logged in.

Fair enough. I think Cakey's explanation above works too, it could be that.

Yes that's also a very feasible possibility, especially as from time to time my computer chooses not to log me in automatically. As I say I'll keep track of my voting activity and report back if somethings going on :wink:

That's been happening to me A LOT lately, but only when I'm at home using Microsoft's new 'Vista' operating system, for some bizarre reason.

There's definitely something strange about 'Vista' though, possibly the most bug-ridden piece of software Microsoft have ever released (and that's saying something!)

It's not some kind of virus, it's your computer. Honestly. They have minds of their own. They just want to make life difficult for us sometimes.

True. There'll be some kind of 'Judgement Day' soon. I bet there'll even be a film about it...

Wow, Daphne's Room or Look Before You Leap. Eventually I went with Daphne's Room.

I'm a little sad an episode from season 11 didn't make it. I thought, maybe High Holiday's, I'm not saying I would have voted for it, well maybe... who knows 8-) :D
Wow, between school and basketball, when am I...going to be able to watch Frasier!!! Oh, don't worry I'll make time.

If only! But for now, just savour the moment of 'Ham Radio' being in second place!

Are you surprised that 'My Coffee with Niles' has done so well BN? It's never usually fared so well in polls such as these in the past, so I'm glad to see it's so well loved on here because it's a truly special episode.

This makes up for Liverpool losing last night.

:evil: No episode that I vote for should come anything less than first place.

Not really, it still only has 5 votes when all said and done. I know of a few other people who've been here in the past who named it as their favourite episodes also (Toffeegirl for one - remember her?). It's always been quite popular.

I'd say it's more of a surprise that HR has only managed to pull a measly 4 votes so far - that can't last.

It was just one game, and I'm sure they'll go on to win thousands more.

Well, hopefully one will rise who will be able to reprogram the computers as he sees fit. Maybe he'll even know Kung-Fu. From what I've seen of The 200th Episode, that sure as heck ain't Bill Gates, on both counts!
