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

The show's creators originally planned for the show to take place in Denver, Colorado. But in late 1992, Colorado passed an amendment that repealed anti-gay discrimination laws. (It was later declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.) The creators did not agree with the amendment and decided to move the show's setting further west to Seattle. The creators did not want the show to take place in Boston, Massachusetts as "Cheers" had because they did not want NBC to ask for frequent guest appearances from that show's characters. See more »

Roger, at Cornell University they have an incredible piece of scientific equipment known as the Tunneling Electron Microscope. Now, this microscope is so powerful that by firing electrons you can actually see images of the atom, the infinitesimally minute building blocks of our universe. Roger, if I were using that microscope right now, I still wouldn't be able to locate my interest in your problem.

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
