Storyline

Rebecca is going to be on a consumer reports show as she wrote a letter to them complaining about an electronic depilatory that ripped off her skin when she shaved her legs. Rebecca is looking forward to exposing the crooked company that makes the product. Meanwhile, Carla feels that the return of Darryl Mead - her fantasy Red Sox player - to Cheers is a sign that she's ready to date again, the first time after Eddie's death. When she and Darryl head off on their date, all Carla sees is Eddie LeBecs everywhere she goes. She figures that Eddie is haunting her since he doesn't want her to date. When she makes an announcement that she will not date, even more Eddies appear. Eddie is haunting her for more than just not wanting her to date. Since she can't figure out why, she, Frasier and Lilith all decide that she needs professional help. Frasier and Lilith are thinking about her seeing one of their colleagues, whereas Carla is instead thinking about a visit to her psychic, Madame Lazora.... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Ted Danson appears briefly in the opening and is not seen again. The chicken pox is given as the reason his character (Sam Malone) does not appear again, which in fact, was the same reason for Danson's absence. See more »

That Gives Me A Warm Fuzzy
8 May 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

Yikes! Sam calls in sick, at home with the 'pox, so we're left with a Carla episode in which she has hallucinations of her dead husband dressed in his hockey uniform.

Terrible stuff, from beginning to end. Hunky baseball player Darryl Mead returns to the bar, and like any celebrity athlete who can have any woman he wants, he develops an instant crush for short, hideous gargoyle Rhea Perlman, a Jewish woman whose character is an assassination on the Italian culture. The hallucinations of the "Eddies" in hockey masks is broad, and silly, and embarrassing, and the séance finale is as ridiculous as it is unfunny.

The one good moment in this episode is an accident that occurred during filming that stays in the show! Carla sees "Eddies" everywhere and jumps on top of the bar in fear. After the commercial break Frasier pulls her down, and in the process Kelsey Grammar accidentally drops a liquor bottle on his foot. He continues on with the scene, even after Woody Harrelson ad-libs: "How's your foot, Dr. Crane?" Kelsey- limping but still in character- responds, "Not so good, Woody." It's a beautiful moment.

Otherwise we have a god-awful guest-appearance from Georgia Brown as Madame Lazora, who calls Cliff a "lardbutt" upon meeting him. I'm not sure what gives this guest-star the right to openly abuse main characters in the show for no apparent reason but the writers must understand... I'm sure they'll let us know someday when they're good and ready. Madame Lazora's senseless hatred of Cliff continues when she asks him to join the séance because he will "draw the negative energy away from the rest of us." What a sweetheart! This is the type of bad actress in a bad role that makes you hate television.

The B-story about Rebecca going on television to complain about an electric leg-shaver is too stupid for me to comment on, so I won't. It's only Kelsey Grammar's wonderful performance that keeps this episode afloat. He plays skeptic, narrator and de facto lead, and it's no surprise that the brilliant actor is especially excellent. He still can't save this disaster.

GRADE: D
