Eminent Boston Psychiatrist, Frasier Crane, last seen gracing the bars of Cheers has left his life there to start afresh in Seattle.

Bob "Bulldog" Briscoe shares some qualities with Barney Stinson from "How I Met Your Mother" including sleeping with many women and treating women like objects. Dan Butler who plays Bulldog and Neil Patrick Harris who plays Barney are both openly gay. See more »
Throughout the scene where Martin brings out the new chair in "Bla-Z-Boy", and then Frasier brings out Martin's old chair, Daphne's legs keeps changing positions between shots. In some shots her legs are crossed, and in others, they are uncrossed. There also is a similar editing goof involving Daphne's legs in "Dark Victory". See more »

I was pleased to see the Crane boys rewarded at the Emmys in 2004; a fitting tribute to 11 years of highly entertaining TV, the like of which I personally will miss terribly.
Reading some of the comments on this site prompted me to write that the characters created are all based on the premise that the two experts on life are constantly frustrated by their own shortcomings and are guided, ignorantly, by the other characters, who demonstrate that their own interpretations on how to run their lives supercede the tertiary-educated brothers.
I will sorely miss the interactions between all members of the cast and the ability of the show to hit the nail fairly and squarely on the head, when it comes to addressing the vagaries of interfamilial relationships. If you don't get this, you never will and you will never see the funny side of life.
I look forward to Australia receiving the most recent episodes, as we are still watching reruns from about 1998! Lucky us!
