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.
Will and Grace live together in an apartment in New York City. He's a gay lawyer, she's a straight interior designer. Their best friends are Jack, a gleeful but proud gay man, and Karen, a charismatic, filthy rich, amoral socialite.
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
In episode 6.8, Frasier: The Seal Who Came to Dinner (1998), the pass-code to Maris's seaside home is described as her "ideal weight", and "what she weighed at her débutante ball" during her pageant years. The series of numbers that Niles (David Hyde Pierce) punched in would mean that Maris, at that time, was 45 pounds and 12 ounces (20.8 kg). See more »
In some episodes, the Space Needle can be seen in the view from Frasier's apartment. In other episodes it's missing completely. See more »
[Roz doesn't like Frasier's relationship with Julia, KACL's financial analyst]
You're gonna have to choose, Frasier.
You will not put me in this position, Roz. We will discuss it later.
No! Tell me! It's her or me! Tell me now! Or I swear to God I will walk out of here and I will not come back!

Whilst a good fan of "Cheers", I was somewhat surprised when it was announced that the Frasier character was getting s spin-off series. I did not see how this was going to work and had rather low expectations for both the show and how long it would last. A decade later and "Frasier" turned out to be simply the best TV sitcom ever made. Virtually unique in concept and presentation, there has been hardly a dud episode in the show and the cast has proved to be one of the best ever assembled for any TV show, certainly in the United States. I doubt that this show will ever be surpassed on mainstream US TV and it would be hard to imagine life without "Frasier" either on TV or on DVD. Repeated viewings remain as enjoyable as the first time viewing on TV. Simply the very best.
