Kirstie Alley was the only surviving regular cast member of Cheers (1982) not to appear on Frasier. Alley explained in an interview that appearing on a show which appeared to portray or endorse Psychiatry, went against her beliefs as a practicing Scientologist. See more »
In "The High Crane Drifter" it's revealed that the apartment above Frasier's is a penthouse occupied by "Freddie Chainsaw," but in season nine the same residence is occupied by Cam Winston and the apartment is virtually identical to Frasier's and not a penthouse. See more »
Whilst a good fan of "Cheers", I was somewhat surprised when it was announced that the Frasier character was getting s spin-off series. I did not see how this was going to work and had rather low expectations for both the show and how long it would last. A decade later and "Frasier" turned out to be simply the best TV sitcom ever made. Virtually unique in concept and presentation, there has been hardly a dud episode in the show and the cast has proved to be one of the best ever assembled for any TV show, certainly in the United States. I doubt that this show will ever be surpassed on mainstream US TV and it would be hard to imagine life without "Frasier" either on TV or on DVD. Repeated viewings remain as enjoyable as the first time viewing on TV. Simply the very best.
