Dr. Frasier Crane, a successful Boston therapist, moves to Seattle to get a new start on life; he has a radio talk show, which he uses to relay his wit and wisdom to others, but at times he struggles with his own problems with his salt-of-the-earth father, his pretentious brother and his friends and co-workers. Written by
The original premise for the series was to revolve around Frasier and his co-workers at the radio station. But the creators felt it was too similar to WKRP in Cincinnati (1978). While thinking of new ideas, David Lee was arranging for health care for his elderly father, who had had a stroke, and he came up with a premise based on that. Lee was also inspired by the vast personality differences between him and his father. See more »

Well Chuck, I'm really sorry I offended you. Now why don't you put your skirt back on and do some dishes?

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!
