One of the reoccurring jokes in the series, was the fact that just about every one knew that Gil Chesterton was gay, except Gil himself. Despite various innuendos surrounding his character's sexual orientation, Gil never formally came out. When asked about his sexual orientation directly, he insisted that he was heterosexual and happily married to a woman. However, Gil was seen walking into a gay bar. See more »

Whilst a good fan of "Cheers", I was somewhat surprised when it was announced that the Frasier character was getting s spin-off series. I did not see how this was going to work and had rather low expectations for both the show and how long it would last. A decade later and "Frasier" turned out to be simply the best TV sitcom ever made. Virtually unique in concept and presentation, there has been hardly a dud episode in the show and the cast has proved to be one of the best ever assembled for any TV show, certainly in the United States. I doubt that this show will ever be surpassed on mainstream US TV and it would be hard to imagine life without "Frasier" either on TV or on DVD. Repeated viewings remain as enjoyable as the first time viewing on TV. Simply the very best.
