*** This review may contain spoilers ***
This hilarious episode spotlights each main character at his or her
best. Nothing is so funny as tragedy in a fine comedian's hands, and
this episode proves it.
Each event extends the theme personality of the character to the point of disaster; each terrible outcome is tailored to their specific hopes and dreams. Roz is humiliated in her eternal quest for love; Daphne for self improvement; Martin, for adventure outside his chair and remote control; Niles in his quest to rekindle Maris; and Frasier, in his always bumbling desire to be shown superior through his advice to loved ones.
The combined fury of the recipients of his conceit finally place Frasier on center stage in the spotlight's glare, dancing and mumbling ad libbing lyrics to "Buttons and Bows"; a perfect tune for live broadcast humiliation.
I think the outbursts of laughter from Daphne and Martin as they watch Frasier's fiasco must have been genuine; tears were running down my face as well. They were probably filmed actually seeing this performance for the first time.
This episode is a perfect jewel of writing, and acting.
