Why do all good things have to come to an end?
I don't think there will ever be a show like this again. I must have watched all the episodes 6, 7 times. Frasier always cheers me up. The show and characters are so likeable and... actually I cannot find quite the the right word, but the show has a magic that for me other shows do not have. It makes me feel the world is not such a bad place.
One thing I noticed: I started watching Frasier around the time when the last 3 seasons were being aired and I remember thinking at the time that the last couple of seasons were awful compared to what came before. I think the reason is that I watched those seasons "live", once a week or however often they aired. When you watch one a day or so, it's a much better experience, and I now think that season 11 is pretty great. I would still maintain that season 10 is below par, but it doesn't matter. The best seasons I think are those in the middle of the first half. I am very glad the show wasn't cancelled in season 1. The series in my view really took off with "My Coffee with Niles" at the end of the first season - fantastic episode. The episode that really epitomises Frasier for me however, and I don't really know why, is the Halloween episode in season 5. The merry intermingling of the extended list of fantastic characters must have something to do with it.
Thank you for the forum and for keeping the legend alive.
