Show Summary

"Frasier" provides a weekly dose of the neuroses and tribulations suffered by an insecure and pompous psychiatrist, Dr. Frasier Crane, host of a Seattle radio advice show at KACL. The twice-divorced doctor's peaceful home life of fine cigars and haute cuisine was shattered when his gruff, ex-cop father, Martin, was injured in the line of duty and forced to move in with Frasier. Martin brought with him a semi-psychic, live-in home-care provider, Daphne Moon, his pesky Jack Russell terrier, Eddie, and a duct-taped recliner that clashes with Frasier's more aesthetically pleasing Eames and Wassily chairs. Their home is frequently visited by Frasier's snobbish and competitive brother, Niles, a fellow psychiatrist whose longtime romantic interest in Daphne was finally happily realized at the conclusion of Season 7. At work, his slightly jaded producer and man-hungry single parent Roz Doyle, supports Frasier. Some of the people who voice the callers to Frasier's radio program are often bigtime celebrities. "Frasier", starring Kelsey Grammer in his Emmy Award-winning title role of Dr. Frasier Crane, made history by becoming the first series, comedy or drama, to achieve a record five consecutive Emmy wins for Outstanding Comedy Series. With this achievement, the series stands ahead of "Cheers", the series from which "Frasier" was spun-off. Overall, "Frasier" earned a total of 37 Emmys (more than any other series in history), including four for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Kelsey Grammer and four for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for David Hyde Pierce. It's also interesting to point out that Kelsey Grammer played the part of Frasier for 20 years, tying him for the longest duration playing the same character on television and, that the show included guest appearances from almost all regulars from "Cheers", excluding Kirstie Alley.

      I am watching season 7, actually looking for a website to watch them online free. I have always liked this show and thought of it as one of the best comedy shows ever. Yes, there are lots of lots of beautifully written episodes and to me the show has never gotten mediocre, I hope the rest of the seasons will be as good as 1-7 seasons.
    • Went on way too long -Mr Bean crossed with Sex and the City.

      The earlier seasons were very good but by season 5 -it is almost a different show.

      The massive drop in quality is most obvious when you marathon the series, it degenerates from cutting quips and witty remarks to episodic gimmicks and 'wackiness' -all the while shrouded in an air of "sophistication" which comes off as cheap pretension.



      It went from a show about a middle aged man dealing with a new city, a new job and new relationships with his family -to a show about a surprisingly famous middle aged man who when not bedding super models and 'swimsuit model and sophisticated scholar' hybrids, is getting himself involved in a whole lot of wacky hijinks by doing some of the most moronic 'worst than Mr Bean' things possible.



      I would certainly have some very harsh words for Charles Douglass (the creator of laugh tracks) if he were still alive, he should be punished for the enormous amount of unfunny that he has helped make it on screen.moreless

      There are many things that I love about Frasier as I discover episode after episode, but what I like most is that these episodes were wonderfully and intelligently written. And I absolutely loved that ending. And I love Niles and Daphne.

      Y'All make me so sick I cannot stand it. I had to endure a year of your reruns on Hallmark Channel thing something different would be there. Well, it is obvious nobody else wants you either and now I am stuck with you another year. Go bury all yourselves along with
