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.

George Wendt suggested he reprise his role from Cheers, by doing an episode in which his character Norm (along with John Ratzenberger as Cliff) made a series of prank calls to Frasier's radio show. Ultimately Norm and Cliff would appear on Frasier together under a different scenario during season nine. See more »
In the 2000 season premiere, Donny, a Seattle-based lawyer, launches a breach of contract lawsuit against Daphne Moon for backing out of their wedding. It is noted that the suit sought "$100,000 in punitive damages". Washington State does not allow for punitive damages in its courts. (Only cases heard in Federal Court are eligible for punitive damages in the State of Washington.) See more »
So, how do the calls look today?
Well, we've got a couple of jilted lovers, a man who's afraid of his car, a manic depressive, and three people who feel their lives are going nowhere.
Oh, I love a Monday.

Upper-class, very entertaining and likeable sitcom.
Rather like Friends and Seinfeld, Frasier is one of those sitcoms of the 90's with mass appeal. While it probably isn't as internationally famous as "Friends" it is every bit as good as it. Over the years, "Frasier" has remained a consistently entertaining and ultimately satisfying sitcom. It always has fresh, witty material and hopefully will continue for another few years. The cast all work perfectly together, the overall effect is very good. "Frasier" is one of the best sitcoms on television today.
