Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Frasier's fifth season is marked by two central themes. First is Roz's (Peri Gilpin) unexpected pregnancy, which naturally opens the door for countless promiscuity jokes for the radio show's beleaguered producer. The second is the continuing drama of Niles (David Hyde Pierce) and his frosty wife, Maris, which seems to finally come to a head. Not that even a good marriage has ever kept Niles from pining for Daphne (Jane Leeves), of course. Frasier's (Kelsey Grammer) show is sailing along, and for the occasion of his 1000th show, is honored by the mayor for "Frasier Crane Day," which allows the cast to do some rare location shooting in Seattle. But he has some problems with KACL management, and the prospect of tough contract negotiations tempts him to return to the Dark Side, in the form of agent Bebe (Harriet Sansom Harris). His personal life continues to sputter, even when he meets a perfect woman (Sela Ward as a fashion model studying zoology, Lindsay Frost as a high-powered defense attorney). The annual guest appearance by ex-wife Lilith (Bebe Neuwirth) comes with a bizarre twist, and his father (John Mahoney) comes to a critical point with his girlfriend (Marsha Mason). Frasier won its fifth consecutive Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, Grammer and Pierce won their third and second statuettes, respectively, and Patti Lupone was nominated for her guest appearance as Frasier's vengeful Greek aunt. --David Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars The Show Goes On... April 2, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This year represented the last year in Frasier's then-unprecedented and still-unequalled five-year Emmy streak for best comedic series. Although it's not quite the equal of its predecessor season, if only because the show never produced a funnier episode than "Ham Radio", this season comes darned close with "The Ski Lodge", which has the main characters changing scenery to a remote snow-packed location and finding love--just not with the people they wanted. The show's farcical humor is played here superlatively, with great result. The season also brings the final resolution to the Niles-Maris Marriage, in "The Maris Counselor", and it is resolved, of course, in the most embarassing way possible. The romantic unluckiness continued with Martin's breakup with Sherry, and the unfortunate exit of Marsha Mason from her Emmy-nominated role. Finally, the season ends with Frasier losing his job to Latino musicians. All in all, this season brought great tribulation to all the characters, but their misery translated into plenty of laughs.

I hope that this time around, Paramount includes at least some special features in the Frasier DVD set. Since I can't get Frasier on TV where I live, I'll probably end up buying it anyway, but I would really appreciate something more. Regardless, Frasier is a comic gem, and its fifth season is great entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Season--annoying situation with ads June 7, 2005
Format:DVD
Season five is clever, warm, and funny. I'm so glad it's been released. My husband I excitedly put in the first disk. We were forced to sit through a long ad for Happy Days, and the disk is set up so the viewer cannot fast forward or jump to the main menu. We shrugged and waited.

Following the long ad for Happy Days were ads for Laverne and Shirley, Mork and Mindy, McGyver, Charmed, and if you can believe it . . . The Brady Bunch. These are not brief missives, and you cannot fast forward. We were stunned and more than a little annoyed.

My advice is to leave the TV off, and put the disk in the DVD player at least ten minutes before you're ready to watch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sophisticated, witty, and hilarious... April 20, 2005
Format:DVD
Along with Friends and Seinfeld, Kelsey Grammer's Cheers spin-off, Frasier, dominated the prime time television landscape during the 1990's. Grammer plays the role of Dr. Frasier Crane who, fresh off of his divorce from Lilith, moves back to his hometown of Seattle where he lands a gig as a radio psychiatrist. Frasier's father, Marty Crane (John Mahoney), a Seattle cop recently shot in an attempted convenience store robbery is in need of physical therapy. Frasier and his brother Niles (David Hyde Pierce) make an effort to mend their relationship with Marty whose plaid shirts and penchant for sports and beer strikes a dramatic contrast with their wine club, opera house culture. After a little prodding, Marty and his dog Eddie (Moose) move into Frasier's upscale apartment, and Frasier hires Daphne Moon (Jane Leeves), a housekeeper and physical therapist to look after the two cranes.

The entirety of the show takes place in mostly three places - Frasier's radio station where he works with show producer Roz Doyle (Peri Gilpin), Frasier's apartment, and the favorite hangout of Niles and Frasier, Café Nervosa. A witty comedic exploration of the nation's clash of cultures (also illustrated by Frasier's run-ins with sports guy Bob "Bulldog" Briscoe), Frasier stands alone as one of the best-written shows in television history. Not a single episode can be considered a dud.

The Frasier (Season 5) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "Frasier's Imaginary Friend" in which Frasier returns to Seattle from Acapulco where he enjoyed a blissful affair with a supermodel zoologist who, for personal reasons, asks him to keep their relationship a secret.

5.0 out of 5 stars No extras, but so what? The show's the thing. June 25, 2005
Format:DVD
No extras. Fine. Okay. There are ELEVEN seasons of this show. I doubt there are enough bonus materials in the vaults to pile a bunch into each of eleven season sets (assuming they plan on releasing all or most of them), so be patient. I'm sure we'll get some goodies eventually.

Season Five still has the writing in full comic swing. The season opens with an episode featuring Sela Ward (hubba hubba!), and if that doesn't get your season started on the right foot then nothing will.

Two of the biggest laughs I've ever gotten watching "Frasier" over the years came in Season Five, in particular the episode where Niles sleeps with Lilith ("Room Service") and the following episode where Frasier's cousin is to marry ("Beware of Greeks").

In "Room Service" the big laugh for me came from a simple line-reading: the room service waiter says "Okay" to Frasier's insistence that he might rekindle his relationship with his ex-wife, while unbeknownst to him (but known to the waiter) Niles is hiding in the bathroom. The actor nailed the line so beautifully.

In "Beware of Greeks", Frasier simply says "And we're back!" following a loopy non-sequitor by Daphne. Grammer nails the line. Big belly laughs all around!

The episode that always gets discussed in Season Five is "The Ski Lodge", a comedy of errors Blake Edwards would be proud to have orchestrated for one of his films. That episode is very funny, but still takes a back seat to "The First Date", the episode where Niles comes closest yet to asking Daphne out on a date. While it is not quite the same kind of humor that is in "The Ski Lodge", the "First Date" episode is both funny and tender. That is a hard line to walk successfully in a 22-minute script.
