Kelsey Grammer used an acting method that he called "requisite disrespect". He would rehearse each scene only once, and he would not learn his lines until a few moments before each scene was shot. Grammer felt that his method brought energy and realism to his performance. The cast and crew got used to it, but guest stars did not like his method. See more »

Upper-class, very entertaining and likeable sitcom.
Rather like Friends and Seinfeld, Frasier is one of those sitcoms of the 90's with mass appeal. While it probably isn't as internationally famous as "Friends" it is every bit as good as it. Over the years, "Frasier" has remained a consistently entertaining and ultimately satisfying sitcom. It always has fresh, witty material and hopefully will continue for another few years. The cast all work perfectly together, the overall effect is very good. "Frasier" is one of the best sitcoms on television today.
