Did You Know?


[about Frasier's crush on Daphne's friend Annie]
Niles: I grant you she's comely, but don't you find her a tad - what would the polite euphemism be? - stupid?
Frasier: Niles, she is just unschooled, like Liza Doolittle. Find her the right Henry Higgins, she'll be ready for a ball in no time!
Niles: Leave it to you to put the "pig" back in "Pygmalion."

French farce on America's most British show!
29 December 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Along with "Beware Of Greeks" (also on the fifth season collection), I think this is the funniest of the many "Frasier" episodes. The Crane men, along with Daphne, her school friend Annie and ski instructor Guy, are having a side splitting time of missed cues and crushes once removed. To say this is funny is like saying Michael Jordan could slam dunk a ball. I was elated whenever this came on because it meant for at least half an hour, my troubles would be forgotten and I could marvel at how well "The Ski Lodge" holds up on repeat viewings. It's even better when one has seen it already, kind of like listening to a virtuoso on the level of Vladimir Horowitz playing a classical piano opus.

I've always felt "Frasier" was a very British in tone program and another actress gets to take the John "Marty Crane" Mahoney Mancunian accent test, as he was originally from Manchester and made sure Jane "Daphne" Leeves and now Cynthia "Annie" Lamontagne (best known as "Big Rhonda" on "That 70s Show") hit the right notes in their vocal performances. The upper crust flair of both "Frasier" and "Niles" makes many think they're gay and here, both of the boys are at their most heterosexual, with one wanting the woman who's only interested in the other. The farce works much better than in the screen adaptation of "Noises Off" and you don't have to pay to see this in a f$$king theatre.
