    Default I love Frasier...

    ... does that mean something is wrong with me???

    No, seriously, does it?



    I have, now, officially, seen every single episode of the eleven seasons of Frasier, (and now, you can, if your heart desires)...



    A Collection Of Video Clips

    I fell asleep to the episode Taps at the Montana, last night, and I believe I've seen this particular episode at least three or four times, before, but, still, it had me laughing out loud.

    And, this is pretty much the characteristic response I exhibit, whenever I watch the show.

    I love the characters; Niles, Roz, and Frasier, especially.

    I also love, love, love how well it's written, directed and executed!!! <--- I cannot stress this enough.

    And, well, there's a part of me that's embarrassed by the fact that I love this show. :/

    It isn't exactly regarded as the coolest show, you know.

    And, *everybody* that I know who knows I love and watch it makes major fun of me for it.



    Though, to their credit, it does seem out of sync with my personality, the fact that I would love such a show, but what can I say, I do, and always have.

    But...

    What I want to know is, why are there so many people who *hate* the show?

    For realz, yo!



    Like, people hate on me for it because, for reasons that escape me, they absolutely hate the show Frasier, I think they find it to be "Uber-White", and classist and pretentious and boring, I think.

    And, I just don't.

    If anything, the show constantly makes fun of the pretentiousness as well as the deeply rooted feelings of insecurity and inferiority inherent to, and exhibited by, both Frasier and Niles!!!

    So, I am curious, who here loves the show, and who here hates it, and why?

    kthnxbai!

    As someone who has only one younger brother and an aging father, I do! And you're spot on about the social satire. I sure miss the show, but 11 seasons is a lot... I would have hated to see it take a dive in quaity as it seems "Scrubs" recently has.

    Intially, I didn't like Frasier. It grew on me, especially when I did a stint in S. Korea. It was one of the few English speaking shows on cable. Some episodes have me in tears of laughter.
    It's very cleverly written, but it's an acquired taste. I got a good friend of mine hooked on it too, so I feel no shame. Yeah it is damned pretentious, but charmingly so.

    I loved Frasier. Especially the first six seasons. It was great.

    Frasier is an alright show. For me it seems rather fantastic, not cause it actually is, but well, he has the life I'd love to have.

    Seriously?

    You want to be a forty-something psychiatrist, turned radio personality, with an ex like Lilith, (zomg, her character is so freakin' perfect and hilarious, it's ridiculous), who perpetually fails at women and love, yet succeeds so brilliantly at antiquing?!?!?

    For a forty something Psychiatrist, he sure pulls though.
