Default The Downfall of CITC (spoiler alert!)

I really like this show and I love Seasons 1 and 2 but now that I've been watching Season 3, I find that the show isn't as good as it was before. There are a few funny scenes in episodes but before I could hardly watch one episode without wanting to write a fan fic story about something I'd seen or else laughing out loud at a line. It might be the arrival of Julia b/c I don't care for her at all. I'm beginning to see a similarity (again!) between CITC and Frasier b/c both shows had a case of unrequited love.

In Frasier of course it was Niles being in love with Daphne and then she became engaged to Donny. In CITC it's Caroline in love with Richard (although she hasn't come out and admitted it), and then we have Julia in the picture. I have to admit that I was pretty shocked when I saw that Richard and Julia got married. Did not see that one coming at all!

Mel (on Frasier-She married Niles after Daphne was engaged to Donny) was a thousand times worse than Julia but the concept is the same. I think the writers want us to hate the other woman so that the real lovebirds can get together eventually.

But seriously I hope the show isn't going to continue to drop off b/c if that's the case, I'm glad Seasons 3-4 aren't on DVD. Probably wouldn't buy them anyway at this point. I mean the show is still funny in Season 3 and there are moments, but it's lost some of it's magic and that's a shame. I'm glad that never happened to Frasier.

I never looked at it that way, I am a huge Frasier fan as well so I guess I have seen the storyline before. The quality of Frasier never really dipped. I can only count 1 episode where I thought that they were running out of ideas (The one where Niles flies a kite in the house, and gets it tangled on the balcony). As for similarity to other Shows - Caroline uses the same NY Street as Seinfeld. They don't use the same camera angles as Seinfeld, but it's so obvious that it's the same street. They even use the same prop guys as Seinfeld. I still want to see seasons 3 & 4, Just to see how things end.

i think you might be left disappointed in the end. i've got seasons 3 and 4 on dvd and seen all the eps. i personally enjoyed season 3 a lot, yeah i couldn't stand julia but i thought it was still interesting and i liked the tension and moments between caroline and richard as they later come to terms with their affection towards one another. season 4, was also hated on, but i loved all the caroline and richard moments, even if there wasn't enough of them. and the ending frankly sucked. well, the last 20 -25 mins of it sucked. and i am a big caroline and richard shipper and was gutted they didn't the happy ending they deserved.

Even though I do not have anything to add to this particular topic, I am going to have to say that I am very happy to finally see some action on this page! I have been working my fingers to the bones trying to think of new and innovative ways to stimulate some conversation on this page not to mention the pages of "Gimme a Break!" and "Mad About You"! All of the above seem to be like dead zones!
