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

Kirstie Alley was the only surviving regular cast member of Cheers not to appear on Frasier. Alley explained in an interview that appearing on a show which appeared to portray or endorse Psychiatry went against her beliefs as a practicing Scientologist. See more »
In "Goodnight Seattle", when Niles drops the ring, Eddie is eating from a plate. On a pulled-back shot, Eddie has licked the plate clean; but on the close-up of Eddie, the plate still has food on it. On the next away shot, Eddie is still licking a clean plate. 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!
