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 "Flour Child", the number on Arlene's taxicab, 804, is the same number used by Alex (Judd Hirsch) in Taxi (1978) - a show also directed by James Burrows, who directed the episode. See more »
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 »

I enjoy watching Seinfeld and Becker more than I enjoy watching Frasier, but Frasier leaves them both behind in genuine sitcom quality. The cast is brilliant and the writing is absolutely top-notch. The first 5 seasons was probably the best display of American sitcom of all time, if not international sitcom. Unfornunately the show ran out of steam in the final few series when the energy seemed to slip away from both the writing and acting.
Frasier is a real comedy lovers comedy. Even though it pokes fun at wine-loving snobs, it's upper-class feel may have kept some from experiencing the show. While it's not my all-time favourite show, Frasier is undoubtedly the most professional sitcom that I have ever seen.
