  • Frasier and Niles get involved in their Greek aunt's restaurant and their cousin's love life.

    I'm a a late-comer to Frasier--I started watching the reruns, but I have watched the episodes many times. There are a few episodes that I skip when they rerun them--mainly the ones where people from Cheers show up. However, the episode "Beware of Greeks" is a particularly unusual episode and really out of the continuity of the show. Perhaps it was created around the same time the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" was popular. A Greek aunt of Frasier's is suddenly introduced out of the blue (as well as a brother of Martin's). These newly introduced relatives had never been mentioned before because Martin had a falling out with his brother and never talked to him. I feel that the episode was just thrown into the series for some unknown reason. It doesn't fit in with the rest of the series.
