Critic Reviews for Frasier Season 5

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Not one of the best Frasier episodes ever, but a respectable one. It gets off to a too-slow start... The show gathers speed and builds to a trademark Frasier frenzied conclusion and a rich comedic payoff.

Aug 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Thankfully, Frasier used the game-of-telephone gimmick sparingly, but used it effectively.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

A witty, worthy successor to Seinfeld.

Aug 18, 2018 | Full Review…

While even amongst hardcore Frasier fans it is obvious that the show took a down-ward turn in its latter years, in its fifth season the show was still bringing in the laughs.

Aug 18, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

One reason Frasier works is that both classes are made up of good people with values, which happen to be expressed in different ways. The show gives both coastal yuppies and Middle America a good name.

Aug 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Exactly the blend of urbane wit and hilarious, over-the-top outbursts to entice Emmy judges year after year.

Audience Reviews for Frasier: Season 5

  • Apr 26, 2017
    The secret to the success of this show is the writing. The acting is super, but this show is shakespearian in word.
  • Jul 22, 2016
    The Ski Lodge was the best episode of this season.
