Laura San Giacomo,
Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
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
Kirstie Alley was the only surviving regular cast member of Cheers (1982) 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 »
The character of Frasier Crane is continued from his days in Boston on "Cheers," with his history pretty much established. However, even though in this series Frasier moves in with his father, on "Cheers" he made several references to both his parents being dead (i.e. "Cheers" episodes #8.21, #9.2). See more »
Niles, is there a light bulb over my head?
You have an idea?
No, I'm asking if there's actually a light bulb over my head.

I enjoy watching Seinfeld and Becker more than I enjoy watching Frasier, but Frasier leaves them both behind in genuine sitcom quality. The cast is brilliant and the writing is absolutely top-notch. The first 5 seasons was probably the best display of American sitcom of all time, if not international sitcom. Unfornunately the show ran out of steam in the final few series when the energy seemed to slip away from both the writing and acting.
Frasier is a real comedy lovers comedy. Even though it pokes fun at wine-loving snobs, it's upper-class feel may have kept some from experiencing the show. While it's not my all-time favourite show, Frasier is undoubtedly the most professional sitcom that I have ever seen.
