Box set containing the entire first season of the popular spin-off from 'Cheers', centred around fussy psychiatrist Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer). Episodes comprise: 'The Good Son'; 'Space Quest'; 'Dinner at Eight'; 'I Hate Frasier Crane'; 'Here's Looking at You'; 'The Crucible'; 'Call Me Irresponsible'; 'Beloved Infidel'; 'Selling Out'; 'Oops'; 'Death Becomes Him'; 'Miracle On Third Or Fourth Street'; 'Guess Who's Coming to Breakfast'; 'Can't Buy Me Love'; 'You Can't Tell a Crook By His Cover'; 'The Show Where Lilith Comes Back'; 'A Midwinter Night's Dream'; 'And the Whimper Is...'; 'Give Him the Chair!'; 'Fortysomething'; 'Travels With Martin'; 'Author, Author'; 'Frasier Crane's Day Off'; and 'My Coffee With Niles'.
Thanks to sharp writing and a pitch-perfect ensemble cast, Frasier became one of the smartest and funniest television shows of the 1990s. Following the 1993 demise of Cheers, Diane's fussy psychiatrist boyfriend Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) seemed an unlikely candidate for a spin-off series. Yet the show earned smash ratings and dozens of Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actor (Grammer) in the very first series.
In an inspired bit of casting, Grammer was matched with David Hyde Pierce as his brother and fellow psychiatrist Niles, and the rest of the players included his radio-programme manager, Roz (Peri Gilpin), his father, Marty (John Mahoney), his father's physical therapist, Daphne (Jane Leeves) and the dog Eddie (Moose).
In the first series, Frasier and Marty try to learn how to coexist in the same apartment, Niles and Daphne spend a stormy evening in Niles's house, Frasier acquires pushy agent Bebe (Harriet Sansom Harris) and searches for love with Amanda Donohoe among others, his ex-wife Lilith (Bebe Neuwirth) makes a guest appearance, the family takes a cross-country trip in a Winnebago and the two brothers collaborate on a book. --David Horiuchi

At the core of the show is the relationship between Frasier and his dad, and the melancholy fact that whatever they feel about each other, they can never share that much. One of my fave moments (not in this series) was when Martin's relationship with the cheerful vulgarian, banjo-playin' Sherry, ended. Frasier meets his dad in a bar and seems to want to reassure him, tell him he'd find someone else. But both men know that at Martin's age that's unlikely - and eventually, rather than insult his dad with platitudes Frasier does the only thing he can : he pretends to take an interest in watching the sports on TV with his dad. It's a beautiful scene because, for all their differences, they are offering each other something simply in spending time together. Incidentally Niles, the brother, is really Frasier mk.1 - ie the super-neurotic shrink in Cheers. The new sitcom's creators realised if Frasier was to be at the centre he'd have to be more three-dimensional than his earlier persona allowed. And the happy coincidence that David Hyde Pearce resembled Kelsey Grammar when young swung it. Of such chances are great sitcoms made.
Why did it eventually run out of steam? My friend Mr Bennett said that it was that all the permutations had been tried - there was nothing new to say. I don't know; but I do know that the freshness and verve here is worth cherishing. And if you have been, thanks for reading.
The show looks like its from another period (remember it is 1993) as Frasier has his originally long hair (like in Cheers) and there are no mobile phones, which are used to much comic effect in later seasons. However, the comedy isn't dated at all. The Crane brothers are witty, desperate, pompous yet lovable, and dad Martin keeps them down to earth in that way we are all used to. Daphne is probably at her wackiest in this season as we see her in her psychic mode more often than not.
The episodes were mostly top drawer with a number of outstanding ones:
'The Good Son' - the first episode introducing Frasier to his new Seattle surrounds, which won an Emmy award; that must say something!
'Space Quest' - Frasier struggles to read his book in peace living with dad Martin and therapist Daphne.
'Selling Out' - introduces the agent from hell; Bebe Glazier.
'Here's Looking at You' - Frasier gets his dad a telescope, which helps him get a date.
'Call Me Irresponsible' - Frasier dates a caller but this conflicts with his ethics.
'Miracle on Third or Fourth Street' - Frasier eats at a local diner on Christmas Day, without his wallet.
'A Mid-Winter Night's Dream' - Niles has his first close encounter with an unsuspecting Daphne.
'Travels with Martin' - on a road trip in Martins Winnebago (caravan), they all end up in Canada.Read more ›
