Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Character developments this season include Roz (Peri Gilpin) falling in love with a garbage man (Tony Goldwyn), Niles (David Hyde Pierce) at last proposing to Daphne (Jane Leeves), Martin (John Mahoney) taking a job as a security guard, and Frasier and Roz sharing a one night stand. A series milestone, Frasier's 200th episode, features Adam Arkin as Frasier's most devoted (read "obsessive") fan. "Cheerful Goodbyes" reunites Grammer with Rhea Perlman, George Wendt, John Ratzenberger, and Paul Wilson from Cheers on the occasion of Cliff Claven's retirement. Other memorable guest star appearances include Tony-winner Kristin Chenoweth as "The Junior Agent," the inexperienced, but tenacious former assistant to Frasier's pit bull of an agent, Bebe (the always exquisite Harriet Sansom Harris), and Brian Cox as Daphne's father, whom Niles is determined to reunite with his estranged wife. Frasier's ninth, unlike Beethoven's, hits some off-key notes (happily, the character of Kirby, the slacker with the Sideshow Bob hair, is gone after this season), but when everything is in harmony (as in "Bla-Z-Boy," in which Martin's beloved chair is accidentally (?) destroyed), it's still capable of a classic or two. --Donald Liebenson

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

After season 7 I found that Frasier had lost a small bit of it's magic. However, even seasons after including season 9 were still outstanding on any standard.Published 7 days ago by Jeff A.

While the overall series has been really good, excellent even, it is starting to run out of steam. There are still several good episodes in this season that are worth watching.Published 9 days ago by Steve Robinson
Great show. Frasier's sweet but pompous character is offset by his crusty father, and the dry wit of his brother. This story of two psychiatrist brothers is a classic.Published 18 days ago by V Lewis
It seems like ever since Daphne and Niles got married, well, it's just not so funny anymore.Published 19 days ago by Rhonda Cawthorn
