    [TV] Frasier

    Anybody still watching this show? I can call it my favourite sitcom of all time.




    Frasier is an American sitcom that was broadcast on NBC for eleven seasons from September 16, 1993, to May 13, 2004. The program was created and produced by David Angell, Peter Casey, and David Lee (as Grub Street Productions) in association with Grammnet (2004) and Paramount Network Television.
    A spin-off of Cheers, Frasier stars Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce, John Mahoney, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin, and Moose. It was one of the most successful spin-off series in television history, as well as one of the most critically acclaimed comedy series.

    Indeed, I can never get enough of the witty humor. Hehe.

    My favourite 25 minute comedy show is an original English show called Peep Show. I don't even own a TV anymore so I don't often watch new shows. I dislike comedies like The Big Bang Theory, maybe I've just seen it before but they just seemed like poor comedy actors and granted it was only based on a 10 minute clip it was enough to know it wouldn't make me laugh. Guess it just depends on your kind of humour, and Frasier is definitely mine.

    I usually watch Frasier once every 1-2 years from the very first episode to the last, definitely one of my favourites and my dads too.

    Frasier is an amazing show, I watch it every weekend when its on TV. Its probably one of the very few sitcoms that doesn't rely on either sex jokes or pop cultural reference jokes :P

    This show was absolutely brilliant, have all the seasons and have probably watched them more than i'd care to say. What makes this show amazing in my opinion are the characters, and how Frasier is just such a unique character being a smart, sophisticated and pompous character, breaking the stereotypical bumbling idiot character, but still managing to make it fit.
    Man is just an animal trying to figure out how to kill time through his days.

    wasent a big fan of "Cheers" but fraiser the spinoff from that is still one of my old time favs. and doubt any serie will ever come close to that.

    It is quite a good show. I also find it funny how many people I know that watch it that never knew his character originated in Cheers.

    I never purposely went out of my way to watch it, but I always enjoyed it when I happened to watch it.

    I love Kelsey Grammer's voice.

    They've shown it non-stop for the past 10+ years in Denmark. Right now it's on 6'eren each afternoon along with the other 90's shows like Spin City - Which they've also show for the pat 10+ years on the same channel.

    Probably low cost to them but still enough viewership that they make money. Call them up though and tell them to buy more updated programs. It's 2012 not 1992!

    I was too young to fully appreciate Cheers and to an extent Frasier. I didn't realize they were on for 11 seasons. That's impressive.

    Meh I don't mind, I'd rather have a very old, but good show than a very new but terrible show.

    An old roomate used to watch it. I somewhat enjoyed it, but it was never really my thing. I found Daphne and Niles kind of annoying, to be very honest.
