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

In 1990, Paramount made a deal with Kelsey Grammer to star him in his own series after Cheers (1982) ended. The idea of Grammer continuing the role of Frasier in the new series didn't come up until later in the show's development. See more »
In "The High Crane Drifter" it's revealed that the apartment above Frasier's is a penthouse occupied by "Freddie Chainsaw," but in season nine the same residence is occupied by Cam Winston and the apartment is virtually identical to Frasier's and not a penthouse. See more »
Hello, Ethan. I'm listening.
Hi, Dr. Crane.
How old are you?
Well, what can I do for you?
Well, I'm having a lot of problems with the other kids at school. They're always beating me up.
Why do you think that's so?
Probably because I'm smart. I have a 160 IQ. I'm in the astronomy club and I hate sports.
Well, you know, Ethan, the other children are just acting out of jealousy and immaturity, and I know it doesn't help much right now, but the day will come in the next few years when...

I love this TV show, and I try to watch it as much as possible! The humor is intelligent unlike some TV shows that have humor that is stupid and immature and predictable. You just have to laugh at all the situations that Niles and Frasier get into that could have been prevented in the first place if they weren't so concerned with appearances, hence the episode when they wanted to see that actor's final stage performance but couldn't because they would not get cancellation tickets! Jane Leeves' Daphne Moon is a wonderful character; she tries to offer words of advice to the Crane family that are sadly ignored most of the time. Martin is funny as the dad who is clueless as to reasons why his sons won't embrace the ordinary life(and I want a chair as comfy as his). I like how Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce showcase their musical talents on the show(and I can tell that isn't fake piano playing) quite often.
Roz is delicious, and you have to laugh at her dysfunctionally romantic life. I enjoy watching Bebe Glazer when she comes on, Lilith is a roll-over when she makes her presence, and of course, Bulldog and his stupid and immature attitude. Watch this show! You'll get a good laugh!
