Residuum – Season 3

Podcast Episode Synopsis: We mostly talk about our favourite ladies from this season and then embarrass ourselves for your entertainment (we hope!).

I’m glad Lauren gets to talk more about Bebe Glaser. She is definitely an underrated character in the show and Lauren has a very impressive way of highlighting her that I very much appreciate.

Bebe Glaser takes a huge breath of smoky air from her bag that is on fire.

I think we maybe have talked about “It’s Hard to Say Goodbye If You Won’t Leave” almost as much as we have talked about “Look Before You Leap”. And I love that we get a glimpse of Kate as a Horse Woman.

Kate Costas beams at Frasier
Kate, likely thinking about jogging. Season 3, Episode 10

Did you think you would get out of here without us gushing about Roz? That was silly of you. You can hear in this clip that she is key to Frasier’s success on the radio and her no nonsense approach is able to cut through Frasier’s crap and produce a quality program. His ideals are no match for her know-how.

And just you wait, you thought you would also get out of here without more talk about “Look Before You Leap”? Silly you. The set up for this episode is classic peak Frasier. Everyone in the scene gets swept up in Frasier’s rhetoric, including Frasier himself. A note about Daphne’s haircut: it is nothing like Princess Diana’s!? I get wanting to look like her and I get that this is supposed to be a ridiculous haircut she gets, but you have to actually cut your long hair if you want to try to get the Di.

Frasier holds up two hands to convince people to do something.
This is the face of a man you can trust. Season 3, Episode 16

Episodes to Check Out

“Look Before You Leap” and “Martin Does it His Way”

What would a podcast in 2020 be without acknowledging that “things have been weird”? And with that, thank you for listening and we will see you next season. To quote Frasier “Goodnight everybody, we love you”.

Residuum – Season 2

Welcome to the show notes for the Residuum episode of Season 2 of Café Nervosa. We hope you enjoy the podcast!

Podcast Episode Synopsis: We are wrapping up season 2 of Frasier with a few things we didn’t get to in our other episodes, and I take back the Lilith crown and talk about that bathing suit!!! Also, we have our swear-filled outtakes.

Eddie is adorable and it is hard to bring clips in of him because he is a dog. So here’s a clip of a dog! Also, we are cat people as you may be able to tell because we don’t really know how to talk about him. But out of all dogs, Eddie is a pretty darn great one.

David Hyde Pierce makes an appearance because he is so damn talented that his gifts cannot be contained to just one episode. Also, hang up those framed quotes y’all. And then go do something good in the world.

Now, the moment  I know you have ALL been waiting for. I talk Lilith. Our Lilith count has been appalling low this season. We have no good excuse for this, but her time on the show is limited in Season 2. It is well-established who she is in the Frasier-verse, and we don’t need constant reminders about who Frasier’s ex-wife is. But come on show, give the people what they want. It’s really great to get to talk about her. And Lauren, you are forgiven, you did all you could and I shouldn’t have put such a burden on you to capture the essence of The Magnificent Sternin.

Everybody clap for Lauren and Taryn because they talked about the passing of John Mahoney and didn’t cry on their podcast. And Frasier is such the better show for Mahoney’s amazing contributions as Martin.

Before the end of this recap I want to take the opportunity to thank anyone who spent their time with us and listened to our podcast and read these recaps. We are very excited to tackle the next season, but I do want to say that as I am writing this I am 39 weeks and 6 days pregnant, so it may take a little longer to get ourselves organized for season 3. But fear not, we will be back!

Episode to Check Out

“Breaking the Ice” (this is not a shock because we recommended it in nearly every podcast episode this season)

Honourable Mention

“Flour Child”

Taryn’s Patented Lilith Count

We’ll call it 10 just because she deserves it

Residuum (Leftovers and Outtakes, Season 1)

Welcome to the show notes for the Outtakes episode of Season 1 of Café Nervosa. We hope you enjoy the podcast!

Podcast Episode Synopsis: we wrap up season 1 of Frasier and talk about random stuff we didn’t get to in the other episodes, also, we swear.

We love gallows humour. And Frasier uses it really well. My guess is some of the writers have dead parents. Read More
