Unification of the Brows with Frasier
Yesterday’s Christopher Reeve Memorial may have been too low brow for the average wotSAT reader. Therefore, today’s post will aspire to unify the brows by showcasing episode synopses from the high brow TV megahit Frasier.
--Remember that one where Frasier gets the flu and then Gil Chesterton--the food critic--and Niles fill in for his radio program? Gil had those strippers on the show and they fed each other links of sausage tar tare. Neurotic Frasier got all paranoid thinking that the food guy and Niles were gonna steal his job and he became more motivated than ever to get over the flu! Man, that was funny.
--Oh shit! How about that episode where Frasier throws out Martin’s chair and then Martin gets way salty at him. Frasier schleps around Seattle searching for the chair and hilariously ends up at a production of Ten Little Indians put on by some high school. Hahahah. It’s so high brow, I can’t imagine America even gets the jokes!
--Zounds! How could I forget to recall that episode when the Seattle opera house accidentally burns to the ground because Niles’ tux was soaked with gin and he was arguing with Daphne in the boiler room standing too close to that open flame. This show really appeals to me. It should have won EVERY Emmy in EVERY category!!!
--Ahh! And finally, my fav is when Niles takes up fencing for the honor of Maris after some dude called up Frasier's show and made it sound like Maris’ fencing instructor was throwing it in her. Who could forget this scene where everyone was bickering over nautical terms??
Daphne: "Schooner? I thought it was a frigate."
Niles: "No, no, a frigate has a fore-and-aft mainsail."
Daphne: "No, no, that's a brigantine."
Niles: "Oh, you're right. Well, then what's a frigate?"
Martin: [interjecting] "That's when you just don't give a damn anymore."
