Frasier is not for teenagers

I've started watching it a few months ago and I really like it.

The guy who plays Niles is brilliant.

ANd their father is such a troll

I enjoyed Frasier in my late teens. Too bad it's not still running on some channel, I'd still watch it. All main characters were great.

It's on at least twice a day where I live. I watch it whenever I have time to kill.

As far as your standard sitcoms go, Frasier was at the top of its class during its time (I don't really consider Seinfeld to be standard sitcom fare just to clarify). Didn't really do anything too revolutionary, but the writing was phenomenal and it was well-acted by all involved. Especially, as mentioned already, David Hyde Pierce.

I never liked Seinfeld. I do like the girl (I think New Adventures of Old Christine is pretty funny - even if way to over-the-top at times) from the show though. As a kid, like Frasier, I couldn't stand Seinfeld. I like Frasier now, but Seinfeld I still don't like. I can choke through an episode if I have too, but I'd much rather watch anything else on TV.

Friends has always and will always be my favourite sitcom. No idea why, but I just loved it. I think the cast was just so excellent (Chandler is one of the most fun characters in TV history, as far as I'm concerned).

Yeah, I'm in my 20's now and enjoy it. I can't watch it for hours like I can with Friends (I don't know how I'm not sick of that yet, lol), but I will watch it every time I see it on TV.

Niles is brilliant. Such an epic character/actor. Even when I hated the show as a teenager, the only parts I ever even chuckled at were when Niles was on screen. I specifically remember the only episode I liked as a teenager was the one where they were doing some type of workout in Niles living room. Hilarious. I'd love to see that episode again now that I actually like the show.

I also love Daphne just cause of her accent. The father is a troll and absolutely hilarious.

Speaking of shows that grow on you... I hated Malcolm in the Middle during its initial run but after watching it in syndication I grew to appreciate. By no means a favorite of mine, but it had its laughs. I still hate Frankie Muniz though.

It was also kinda revolutionary for a network sitcom during its time. Now NBC's entire Thursday night line-up is shot with a single-camera and no laugh track (save the God awful Whitney), but Malcolm was pretty much alone in that regard when it aired.

And by sitcoms, I think I am easily impressed. I like a lot of them. I can't even count how many seasons of sitcoms I own. Off the top of my head;

- entire series of Friends
- entire series (so far) of Spin City
- entire series of Saved by the Bell
- entire series (so far) of Big Bang Theory
- entire series (so far) of How I Met Your Mother
- entire series (so far) of My Two Dads

And I'm drawing a complete blank after that.

Am I to understand this as meaning Spin City is back on the air?


Also, this just seems like a generic ****** sitcom that will get canned soon. Never seen it, I'm not judging, just based off general impressions.

However,this Kat Dennings person. I know a girl that looks identical to her sans the rack. It is uncanny how 100% the same their faces/hairstyles are. Creepy.

No, they haven't released the entire series yet. I only have 5 seasons so far, Season 6 comes out in December.

And I think this sitcom is very funny. Vulgar too, which is nice from the usual family problems crap. Random ass stuff too that's really funny.

Then she does not look like Kat Dennings!

Frasier is a top-10 all-time sitcom. I didn't start to enjoy it until my late teens.

Also guilty as charged.

I dig the sarcastic humor as well, but if women can have their vagina diaries and superhokum, I can have Kat Dennings.

I'm not one to hate on others taste and if I picked up CBS at my place, this seems like a show that I'd just have on in the background during homework. That said, I didn't laugh at that clip one bit, haha.

The horse is so ****ing random. I love it.

Like I said though, I watch this at 4am when I'm super tired, so that probably helps with the humor.

I just watched the entire clip waiting for some sort of joke that may be funny.

I think you posted the wrong video.

Still of the mind Frasier was the last really good sitcom to be made. 2 Broke Girls is another show my kid watches sometimes that I very occasionally find something to chuckle about here and there.

"Max, get him out of here, he doesn't know I'm a waitress"? This is really funny?

Never understood what was so great about Frasier. I think it was for that 1%. Just found the show bizarre.
