Favourite Shows: Frasier

There are few shows that I love to the very end. Normally I cut a show once it starts to get bad, but in a few cases love overcomes! You’ve heard me blog about my love of X-Files and The Wing but my other love has been largely ignored on this site, Frasier.  Frasier remains my favourite comedy and also features two of my favourite on screen pairings, Frasier and Niles and Niles and Daphne.  I found the show in Seasons 3/4 after I had gotten addicted to Cheers in syndication and needed more.  I didn’t expect Frasier to be better than Cheers but it turned out to be.  To this day I love the show like no other.

That’s why I was delighted to find out that Peter Casey, creator and executive producer of the show had posted a 3 part column at Ken Levine’s  blog.  He talks about how Frasier made it on to the air, the pitch and the casting(the Lisa Kudrow debacle).  As someone who loved the show, I read the articles with a massive smile on my face.  If you’ve never read Levine’s blog I suggest you do so.  He’s a comedy veteran and without a doubt produces one of the best TV blogs on the interwebs.

Hey There!

This blog will gradually grow as I have more time to update it. I love television, movies and pretty much all things media related. So prepare for changes as this is very much still a work in progress. Questions or further comments? Email tvdork.
