Season 9 of Frasier saw Dan O'Shannon become the sole `Showrunner' following Mark Reisman's departure from the staff, and it could hardly have been in more tragic circumstances. David Angell, the co-creator of the show and a major creative force died, as so many did, in the September 11th atrocities of 2001. It's difficult to assess how this tragedy affected the show creatively, as the series was already in a period of re-adjustment following the Season 7 finale and the whole dynamic of the show had changed. Taken as a whole, the season is a marginal improvement on the more serious and thoughtful season 8. There are a greater number of funny episodes, but the poor episodes really stand out. Here's a rundown of the season:

Don Juan In Hell Part 1 - A continuation of the season 8 finale in which Frasier has to choose between two women, Claire and Lana. On the whole it's a pretty dull re-tread, with only the appearance of `Island Niles' providing some mild amusement.

Don Juan In Hell Part 2 - Likely to be combined with the first part on DVD, this is a much better episode. Frasier forces himself to confront the reason why his relationships always fail by inviting Lilith, Diane, Nanette (his first wife) and Hester (his mother) on a trip inside his head.

The First Temptation of Daphne - Daphne and Niles address issues of trust following Daphne's discovery that one of Niles' patients is infatuated with him.

The Return of Martin Crane - A thoughtful episode in which Martin returns to work for the first time since he was shot many years ago.

Love Stinks - The first truly bad episode this season revolves around Roz being embarrassed dating a garbage disposal worker.

Frasier is one of the all time great shows. Season 9 is one of the better seasons of this eleven seasons series.

During this season, Frasier, on a getaway at a rustic cabin, has a hallucination of his three previous girlfriends/wives. He also manages to accidentally destroy the arm chair of Martin. The reconstructed arm chair ironically is the most expensive item in his exquisitely assembled drawing room - oh the irony! Niles and Daphne plans to move in together and their plans are thwarted by the arrival of Daphne's mother. Frasier tries to un-mask Lilith's (his ex-wife) brother, a con-artist. In one memorable episode, Cliff's (a character from Cheers) farewell party introduces Niles to Frasier's past exploits at Cheers. During the season finale, Roz and Frasier sleep together, forever immortalized by the comment from Martin ("Big story about how Roz's purse spent the night on the coffee table"). And Niles is off to England to try and convince the alcoholic father of Daphne to reunite with his family.

A strongly recommended season and those of you not familiar with the characters, I have added a small summary of the main characters of the show.

Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer): The lead character. He holds degrees in psychology from Harvard University and lives in Seattle. His list of selective hobbies include playing the piano, attending the opera and expensive charity events, collecting expensive art and participating in wine tasting events. Of course his main past time is unsuccessfully trying to curb his competitive nature - especially when it comes to his brother Niles.

Niles Crane (David Hyde Pierce): The undoubted star of the show IMHO. Frasier's brother and practicing psychiatrist.

Some people talk about the dip in quality of Frasier in some of the latter seasons, and while it's true that some of the episodes were a little less fresh in season 9, it's hard to complain about a show that overall is so great. Some of the episodes in this season seemed a little clunky or forced like the one where Frasier is haunted by his ex-wives' memories or the one where he attends a retirement party for Cliff of Cheers. However, there are some really good episodes too. I think part of the issue the show faced in seasons 8 and 9 was the partial resolution of the Daphne-Niles relationship and how that affected the story lines. However, the final scene of the final episode is a highly emotional and effective hook based on these two characters that makes you want to rush out and buy season 10. All in all, if you are a fan of Frasier, you will enjoy watching this season.

I love Frasier, so I am glad I bought this DVD to have a complete set. If you're a Frasier fan and can't afford a package of the whole series at once, do as I did, buy one season at a time as your budget allows. The characters from Season 6 on were not as comical though. The comedy was in Season 1 through Season 6. After the loss of David Angell on 911 definitely effected the characters, writers, etc. It became a very angry show. The characters fought with each other a lot more and Frasier had screaming fits, constantly.

The ninth season of Frasier continues the wonderful comedy one would expect from the Frasier boys. This television series has been able to generate laughs at an adult level without treating the audience like un-educated children. This season has lost nothing on the previous seasons, while developing the lives of the characters. I can't wait for season 10 to be released.
