Did You Know?

Trivia

Maris, Niles' wife for much of the series is unseen on-camera, but often the subject of plotlines and jokes. Her maiden name was never revealed on the series. Maris is immensely wealthy, much wealthier than Niles, as well as spoiled, dominating, and neurotic. Many of the characters pointedly dislike her, with Frasier stating, "Maris is like the sun, except without the warmth". In a further humorous vein, David Hyde Pierce passively describes Maris during a Montréal comedy performance (which he performed in-character) as "a wife who's like a refugee from Taming of the Shrew."

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Frasier: [after Frasier has just met Daphne, Martin's new kooky, live-in physiotherapist] The whole idea of getting somebody in here was to help ease my burden! Not to add to it!
Martin: Oh, do you hear that, Eddie? We're a burden.
Frasier: Oh Dad! Dad, you're... you're twisting my words! I meant burden in its most positive sense!
Martin: As in, "Gee, what a lovely burden?"
Frasier: Something like that, yes!

User Reviews

Quality, quality, quality.
13 February 2005 | by royuSee all my reviews

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.
