Eminent Boston Psychiatrist, Frasier Crane, last seen gracing the bars of Cheers has left his life there to start afresh in Seattle. He now has a spot as a popular radio Psychiatrist, giving him the chance to spread words of wit and wisdom to the masses. He shares his apartment with his retired cop father, Martin, and his father's physical care assistant, Daphne Moon. Add in brother Niles, Eddie the dog, some bizarre situations and plenty of humour and you've got all the ingredients for an excellent show and worthy successor to Cheers. Written by

In the 2000 season premiere, Donny, a Seattle-based lawyer, launches a breach of contract lawsuit against Daphne Moon for backing out of their wedding. It is noted that the suit sought "$100,000 in punitive damages". Washington State does not allow for punitive damages in its courts. (Only cases heard in Federal Court are eligible for punitive damages in the State of Washington.) See more »

Is that a little swan you just made?
No, it was a B-52.

This sitcom is well above Cheers, right up there with Seinfeld, with whom it shares the cynicism, great chemistry between cast members, fast-paced and witty dialog. The characters are extremely well drawn, and the exploration of comedy is complex. Very well written, extremely well acted, and entertaining perhaps for a tad smaller audience than Seinfeld, because it's a bit more intellectual in approach, it is ultimately brilliant and original.
If Seinfeld was about "nothing", this one is about "everything", and in addition packed with great actors, and special guests.
P.S.- even the dog is brilliant
10* out of 10
