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

Kelsey Grammer has said that "The Show Where Diane Comes Back" is one of his favorite episodes. On Cheers (1982), Shelley Long didn't like the Frasier character and lobbied hard to get Grammer removed from the show. The producers disagreed, noting that the audience liked him. When Long's character of "Diane Chambers" appeared on this show, Grammer said the episode was an opportunity for him and Long to make peace with each other. See more »
In Season Two's "The Friend", when Bob Reynolds wheels away from the table in Cafe Nervosa and out the door, he has the book on barbecuing on his lap. A split second later when Frasier exits behind him, the book is back on the table. See more »
[Looking through a box of keepsakes from Niles' childhood]
Oh, no one around here draws pictures anymore.
What the heck is this, anyway?
Oh, that is an Egyptian battle scene from AÔda. Look, that's Radames, and that's the jealous Amneris, and -
Oh, I misspelled Amonasro. Ah, to be six again...

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
