Don't Pay Any Attention to the Naysayers - This is a Funny Episode
3 July 2019 | by danafranklinSee all my reviews

Guest star Alan Tudyk does a fabulous job as the stations new billionaire owner. Frasier, hoping that the new owner will syndicate his show, offers to mentor him in the finer things of life, from wine to automobiles to furniture to condos. Instead the owner replicates everything Frasier has, including buying the unit right above Frasier's and furnishing it as an exact replica of it! To rub salt in Frasier's wound, he gets all the credit and accolades, including a featured spread in a home magazine.

This most assuredly is not a two star episode that another reviewer gave. Its a typically hilarious episode playing right into Frasier's insecurities.

It also features Niles and Mel in their great comedic chemistry and timing.
