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 popularity of the gag involving Maris's (Niles' first wife) bizarre absences challenged the writers to constantly come up with new reasons for her absence. A similar gag occurred in Cheers with Norm's wife, Vera, who was also never seen on screen. See more »
Throughout the scene where Martin brings out the new chair in "Bla-Z-Boy", and then Frasier brings out Martin's old chair, Daphne's legs keeps changing positions between shots. In some shots her legs are crossed, and in others, they are uncrossed. There also is a similar editing goof involving Daphne's legs in "Dark Victory". See more »

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.
