The gayest Frasier far!
6 June 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This episode of "Frasier" is one of the funniest of the series--which says a lot considering that the show was on many years and had many wonderful episodes. The story begins with Roz dating yet another man. But when Frasier meets him, he assumes the guy is gay...which seems pretty funny considering how stereotypically gay many of Frasier's actions are on the show. When he later sees this boyfriend and thinks he's gone into a gay bar, Frasier follows....and soon folks about Seattle think Frasier is gay and that's why he went into the establishment. One of the folks who now assumes Frasier is gay is Alistair Burke (Patrick Stewart) and instead of correcting Alistair's assumption, Frasier pretends to be gay. Why? Because Alistair is well connected in society and with the opera...and Frasier leads on the poor guy in order to advance himself with Alistair's friends!

The writing was extremely clever in this one. However, if worked especially well because Patrick Stewart's acting was exceptional and it was nice to see how well he could do comedy. Well worth seeing and quite interesting to see Frasier being a wicked tease!
