Tossed Salad & Scrambled Eggs

Quite stylish
Frasier, the iconic hit TV show spin-off from Cheers, was first broadcast on NBC 25 years ago. It ran for 11 seasons and a staggering 264 episodes. And I loved every single one of them - it was certainly appointment TV at Medd Towers on Friday nights till it bowed out in 2004. That the show's main protagonist Frasier Crane was outshone every week by his younger, more pompous, brother, Niles (even after he got it on with Daphne) only added another layer to one of the most genuinely funny sitcoms ever to come out of America; or anywhere else for that matter.

  1. It was so good, wasn't it? Niles is the man for me too. You probably already know this but just in case not, it's been on continuous rotation on Channel 4 every morning for about the last 12 years it seems, so you can watch it again multiple times. We sometimes watch it with breakfast, and nearly always find it's the same episode that we caught the previous time come round again. And again. And again....

    1. Thank you C. I never tire of it. It's just so well paced and I honestly don't think the writers ever had a bad day at the office.
      But, and I don't know how you feel, when Niles was buzzing round Daphne like a fly round a dustbin, those episodes slightly shade it for me purely for the 'will they, won't they?' factor.

    2. Agreed! Sometimes it's all about the wanting, not the having!
