Holy shit I had to look that up as I never knew that existed. I stand corrected. 

While I've seen every episode of Seinfeld and Frasier multiple times the only time I ever watched Friends was when I was with a girl who wanted to watch it. Just wasn't a show I liked much. 

Apparently the rape allegation against Grammer was from a babysitter who brought forth the allegation over a year after it allegedly took place. DA refused to follow up with charges since she waited so long and didn't have any evidence like a rape kit done right away. While looking that up I found this quote from a former Frasier writer that's a funny mental image. 

"He would ooze into the studio, his life all out of sorts. Jimmy would say "Action," and he would snap into Frasier and expound in this very erudite dialogue and be pitch-perfect. And Jimmy would yell "Cut!" and he would ooze back into Kelsey—glazed-over eyes, half asleep, going through whatever he was going through. It was the most amazing transformation I'd ever seen."

The last name of the man who murdered Kelsey’s father when Kelsey was 13 was...

Niles.

NBC was going to make a tv show about two gay dudes who lived with their dad, but got cold feet (this was 1993 or whenever). They changed it to Frasier and Niles. 

Also, I read an article probably a year ago about this coming back, with Frasier being a big Trump supporter. No CR, but that would be ridiculous for so many reasons. Mainly it wouldn't fit the character, at all.

I literally just started watching Cheers from the start, so this hits close to home.  I was too young when it came out and didn't catch on until well after Dianne left and Woody showed up...so I missed the first couple seasons.  Greatness.

I'll probably watch Frasier afterwards.

Yep! Reasons below:

  • 4 times married
    • first wife - dance instructor
    • second wife - hair and makeup stylistfiled for an annulment when Csuhany was three months pregnant and evicted her from their home. Grammer claimed she was abusive and fired a gun at him
    • third wife - dancer and model
    • fourth wife - flight attendant (25 years his junior)
  • 7 kids, one illegitimate with hair and makeup stylist Barrie Buckner
  • alcoholism
  • coke addiction
  • a DWI in 1988
  • 2 arrests for possession of cocaine
  • statutory rape accusation
  • in 1996 crashed his "Dodge Viper' while intoxicated
  • alleged sex tape(s)
  • part of a copyright lawsuit

at best, pretty damn smarmy

I thought you were more live and let live than that. Interesting that we all have our limits.

Very smart, very accessible show. Holds up very well. Love the women in it. Niles occasional bits of physical humor are priceless.

This was a classic.

Why does Frazier talk the way he talks?

Very "Mr Bean" even down to the little grunts and sighs. Never thought about it but he was a damn good slapstick comedy actor.

He was only cast because someone saw his head shot and thought "Huh, this guy sure looks like Kelsey Grammar". 

I thought he was cast as a different character because he had a great reputation and that the similarity in appearance made them change the character to Frazier's brother.

Also, Frazier and Niles speak the way they do because they're snobs as much as anything else. 

Niles had other small physical comedy bits often in the background of the main action. It's still an easy show to happen upon and watch until the end on cable, but that makes me wonder how much we channel surf with streaming and recorded TV always having a backlog of choices for us.

I have been working my way through Cheers as well, I am part way through season 10 now. Definitely moving on to Frasier after.

I believe Frazier was scientifically proven to be the best show to watch as you go to sleep. So relaxing 

This was how I came to discover the show when I was still in high school. It was always on late nights about 11pm. This was about the time I would be getting ready for bed in those days. Perfect show to relax to and get ready to sleep.

So much greatness in this show that could not appreciated by the teenager version of myself.

His sister was also killed, by a man named Fredrick.

Halfway into season 3 and Diane Chambers makes an appearance. Totally forgot she and Frasier dated during Cheers and she left him at the altar. I think that's when his personality morphed from very tame into the personality he has now. I think?

i think he was originally slated to have a short run as Diane Chambers fiancé (originally very straight laced), but he became such a popular character that he remained on the show long after Shelly Long left - marrying Lilith, of course.

I couldn’t make the transition from Cheers to Frasier. I liked his character better as a role player not a starter.

Actually would take Frazier over cheers all day

NEWS ALERT - people don't look the same at 28, as they do at 61.

Yeah, but some look pretty good. Could just be a bad pic, I'm sure she's looked better.

That's a big yes. She's like the female version of Dorian Graves.  Batshit crazy I believe, but hot as hell still.

66 years old. Damn.

Looks like she's had some work done.  She's getting a little of that Jack Nicholson, Joker smile thing. Still would give her my best 8.3 seconds.....

Niles getting “high” and talking about the munchies was pure gold. “I’m thinking of pairing this Chilean sea bass with an aggressive Zinfandel.”
