Frasier Crane was in about 500 episodes of TV. That's insane if you think about it.



Was even on an episode of this show:

I can think of an episode set on a cruise ship or yacht.

Thanksgiving episode is in a House
When Frasier and Lily have kid they have a couple episodes that are in Frasiers house


Out of all the episodes they have maybe 10-15 take place outside to bar

It changes a little over time.The Norm and Cliff stuff lasts the whole way.Some of the dynamics between Sam and waitress' change over the series.I don't remember it ever sinking very low.No jumping over the shark.

eta:On one Cheer's episode I believe Frasier said that his father was a Scientist.

Cheers was one of first shows to deal with homosexuality as a former teammate of Sam's comes out of closest....

Also Sam, Norm, Cliff, Carla are the only ones to appear on every episode

-When does the show really hit its stride? Seinfeld if my favorite show of all time, but I'll admit that first season is almost a completely different show compared to the mid/later seasons. It took about 2 or 3 seasons to really become "seinfeld", if that makes sense.


I would say by late first season, early second season, it starts to find it's legs. I'm excited for you, Dawg, as I watched the show when it aired.

95% of what happens in Cheers - happens in Cheers. They branch out only reluctantly and briefly.

-Reading that other thread, I got the sentiment that everyone LOVES coach. Maybe I'm just too young, but eeeehhhhhhh he's kind of TOO much of a charicature, IMO. He's the bumbling, goofy, slightly stupid old timer.


4 episodes and you're not there yet. Coach is awesome.

quote:

-In your opinion for those who have seen it all, what are your favorite seasons? You dont' have to rank them all since it's a sitcom and ranking the seasons here would be different than ranking the Wire or LOST or something..but are there any that really stand out to you as being above the rest?


I generally like the seasons that had Frasier and Diane, so, probably 3 through 5 - throw Coach in there, too, and I'll say 3 as a single favorite season.

My favorite episode is Season 1, Episode 19. My favorite single scene is from the Season 5 premiere and that is probably my second favorite episode.

I don't really like Coach's character that much. Maybe it was funny in the 80's, but I don't find him funny or interesting most of the time. He's too over the top and cheesy. I prefer Woody much more, even though he has a similar character...I think he pull sit off way better.

Albania, Albania,

you border on the A-driatic.
