Best sitcom ever. Every character is a goldmine. Dialogues are actually smart and intelligent yet funny.

Though not a fan of Niles/Daphne linkup, they were so much fun before.
When I occasionally pretended I was ill to avoid school, this was by miles the highlight of the sitcoms on Channel 4 in the morning (way ahead of the other options of Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond, Will and Grace etc.). It would definitely be a contender to be in my top 5 sitcoms of all time although I completely agree with you that it lost something once Niles and Daphne became a couple.

ROZ: "You don't think I can appreciate a sophisticated man? You know, it's not just about sex for me, Frasier."

One of my all time favorite comedy show.. Was just brilliant.. Best part is it doesn't get bad even on a rewatch..

Sorry, what does that mean?
That only Kelsey Grammar might be in the reboot and not the rest of them..

I was young when it aired but the show made me want to have a terrier. I now have a Jack Russell Terrier :)

RIP, Eddie :(

There was a particular line that has always stuck with me and, no, I'm not ashamed to admit that I've borrowed/ paraphrased it on occasion.

"...at Cornell University they have an incredible piece of scientific equipment known as the Tunneling Electron Microscope. Now, this microscope is so powerful that by firing electrons you can actually see images of the atom, the infinitesimally minute building blocks of our universe. If I were using that microscope right now, I still wouldn't be able to locate my interest in your problem"

Niles: Sadly, to pay my condolences. It seems our old gardener has
passed away unexpectedly.
Frasier: Oh, not Yoshi. Gosh, that's too bad.
Niles: He had a heart attack when he was out trimming Maris's elaborate hedge maze. The paramedics never had a chance.


This one always kills me. Great show. The dialogues are incredible.

I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed Frasier, possibly because it went a bit limp after Daphne and Niles finally got together.

Before that it was one of my favourite comedies and endlessly watchable.

https://tvseriesfinale.com/tv-show/...-hints-that-a-revival-will-be-announced-soon/

Looks this magnificent show might be getting the revival treatment. If it happens I hope they can find the same magic, would be sad to see its history blemished by a cheap cash grab.
They've been flirting with the idea for ages but it won't happen in my opinion - especially without John Mahoney. Only way they could pull it off, without harming it's legacy/feeling stupid would be if it was a one off special in memory of him and they do a funeral type episode. That way they address the elephant in the room, allow the show to have gone forward several years showing where they all currently are

I think its one of those things that you want to happen, but know it shouldnt. Probably the feeling everyone has since as you say they keep flirting with the idea. Thought it was interesting though that he says he listening to pitches right now and not the usual BS about "seeing what happens", "schedules" blah blah blah.

For some reason this was always a show I just couldn’t stand. Probably because I can’t abide Kelsey Grammer.

Just started watching this show and it’s become one of my favorites. About midway through season one.

This is one of my favourite scenes.

I can't wait for the new series even though it isn't really needed as this is one of them shows you can genuinely go back to time and again.

How does it compare to Seinfeld? I've never watched Frasier.

I haven't watched enough of Frasier to compare to Seinfeld but it seems that if you like one, you'll like the other. Both make good use of dry humor and subtle jokes.
