As the series progresses, we learn that Frasier and Niles were named after two lab rats their mom was using in an experiment (psychology?) when she was pregnant with Frasier. Frasier (the rat) had already died when Frasier (the human) was born. See more »
In season 7 Daphne's Manchester accent becomes more prim and clear, while throughout all other seasons before and after season 7 her accent is high-toned, thick and whiny. See more »
I suppose I like my gents more on the manly side.

Is that a little swan you just made?

Mainly it is a great show thanks to the cast. Everyone in the show does a good job. The thing that has made the show work from the beginning is the interplay between the characters. The two brothers, Niles and Frasier who are opera loving cultured type people, and their dad the sports loving everyman is great. Also, I can sort of relate to some of the characters as well. I am a sports fan who doesn't go into all that fancy stuff, but like Frasier I have trouble with women. The show rarely has episodes I don't care for, and I usually get a good laugh during every show. I have taped almost every episode from TV as well. Hopefully, this show will keep going for a long time, but I am afraid it is nearing the end.
