    Frasier

    Anyone like the show? I have only watched it when nothing else was on, but even then the episodes were funny and great. I've been watching the 2 episodes that come on here late each night (12am) when I go to bed, and heh, it has to be the best sitcom I've seen, and I always seem to laugh at something. I may just have to get the DVD's.

    I always liked the dry humor, and some of the jokes were pretty subtle. Cheers was also one of my favorite shows, so it was natural that Frasier would appeal as well.

    One of the best shows with longevity - great cast, city and they know how to make fun of themselves! Man it's about time David Hyde Pierce came out of the closet - another amazing actor!

    Eh...I think it's quite boring, but I'm 23. I've heard there's definitely a generation gap between the people who like and the people who don't.

    Been watching it for awhile, one of the few shows I like.

    I'm 22 and I agree completely with HigherGround.

    Loved it! Farce at its best!

    My favourite episodes are "The Two Mrs Cranes", "The Seal Who Came to Dinner" and "The Matchmaker". There are others, but I can't recall the episode titles at the moment...

    I'm 28 now, but started watching it in the late 90s.

    I'm thinking of getting the complete set of episodes on DVD or something.

    In its day, I considered it the best written show on TV.

    I loved the time when Frasier told Daphnie that Clive had called. "Oh, was he British," she asked. "No, it was the hot-blooded Mexican Clive," he replied dryly.

    Interesting idea. Why do you think it might be?

    When I was a teenager in the mid/late 80's, one of my favorite summertime rituals was getting my ass kicked on the Thursday night training ride with the racing club I belonged to, and then collapsing in to a chair at 9 pm to watch "Cheers" and enjoying a cold Coke. I'm sure there's a correlation between that and my interest in Frasier, but I doubt it would explain everyone's interest in the show.

    So young, yet possessing wisdom far beyond beyond his age... (I tried to think of what Frasier would say.)

    I'm 24 and love that show. Not that my age really matters (unless your an advertising rep!).

    I really just liked how they didn't talk down to the audience and didn't explain everything away. It was a good mix of subtle and blatant humor with the occasional dash of lowbrow guffaw. Probably the same reason I like Boston Legal...

    I absolutely love the one where Frasier and Niles had to take the auto repair community ed class, and they couldn't pass. Kills me every time.
    Hi. I don't think we've been introduced. I'm awesome.

    I've actually never seen an episode of Frasier, for some reason. Though a few years ago when I still watched TV, the "TV Land" station was running two episodes of Cheers per night, every night. I watched the entire run of the show within a few months. It was great. If the DVD sets of that show ever go on sale for really cheap, I might be tempted. Like I need more DVD boxsets.

    YES! That was the episode that got me hooked. So funny.

    The teacher confiscates Frasier's note:
    "Okay, who here speaks French?!"

    Apparently, he did, about a month ago. We're all reeeeaaaaally surprised!
