  • What a clever way to introduce a new series!

    As in all new television shows, the main characters must be introduced. The makers of Frasier did a wonderful job of this by introducing the characers one by one, and by using a subheading before each of those scenes. Kelsey Grammer does such an excellent job playing the part of Dr. Frasier Crane. Kelsey gave an especially wonderful facial expression when Frasier's brother Niles insulted his radio show by implying that it was mundane. The other actors and actresses also are perfect for the roles that they play, and they are more beloved during later episodes as their characters become more developed.

    The ending credits are even interesting. While Kelsey Grammer's voice is heard singing the theme song, the actors wordlessly act out a very amusing scene that refers back to an earlier event in the episode. This particular episode not only has delightful humor but also the right amount of human drama as well. And this is just the beginning. Keep watching...
