my boyfriend keeps frasier-shaming me. i’ve only rewatched the series fully thrice (okay, okay FINE! i watch it anytime it’s on the hallmark channel at night, but they episodes aren’t in order), but he seems to think i’m on number like, 6. anyways, i decided to rewatch it again recently bc i finished the show i was binging when i was going to bed. i figured i’d just watch a couple of episodes just to fall asleep, and then it just turned into a full rewatch.
i mean, if i’m not sick of it and it’s still making me LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARL, who cares?
i’m currently in the last season, and wendie malick’s character ronnie comes in. tl;dr (no real spoilers), she’s the brothers crane’s babysitter back in the day and they find her in present day. frasier ends up trying to cash in on his childhood crush on her, but she ends up dating their father (named martin).
what inspired this post, is that she was also on a show in the 90s that i watched as a youth on HBO called “dream on”. she played judith tupper, a woman who divorced a schleppy, NYC book publisher named martin tupper, and basically tortured him marrying “Mr. Perfect” aka richard stone. the entire time you’re watching the show, you’re basically hoping at least 40-60% of the time that they get back together.
i honestly don’t remember how the show ended. i own seasons 1 & 2 on DVD, but they never released seasons 3-6 on DVD. i don’t want to look it up how the show ended or if they ever got together in between. maybe they did reunite, maybe they didn’t. either way, i bring this up bc on frasier, in one of the episodes, martin finds out she’s going out on a date with another man in addition to newly starting to date him. she actually ends up going out with a guy named richard, but ends up choosing martin in the end. i thought it was kind of poetic justice, and i wondered to myself if the writers did that on purpose or not. i googled it, but i couldn’t find anything concrete.
that really would make me so happy… sticking it to dr. richard stone, HHMMPH! 🙂
