Lousy two parter
1 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It seems like they didn't have enough material for two whole episodes so they stretched it out. It was filled with lame jokes and slow story telling. The B-plots with Niles & Daphne and their sleeping habits was annoying as was Martins trouble with a DVD player and Eddie not being popular. The constant neurosis of Frasier trying to impress a girl has long grown tired. Roz trying to get Springsteen tickets could have been a whole episode by itself but the opportunity was completely wasted, as was the potential relationship between Kirby and Frasier. Luckily that relationship has time to grow in another episode later on. Overall it seemed like the producers and writers ran out of good ideas a long time ago and the true gems are few & far between. This was not one of them even though Claire was great material. This two-parter should have been condensed so all the best jokes and plots could move along quicker. But a bad episode of Frasier is still much better than most other shows so it gets an automatic 5/10.
