This thread was created so we could rate each episode in the Frasier run.
Season 1, Episode 1: The Good Son
The launch of "Frasier" was expected by many to be linked to Cheers somehow before it premiered. But it was not. The characters start to develop extremely fast for any sitcom. The only character change is Martin. He appears to be mad and not nice. There wasn't much of a bumpy ride from the start which is a plus. The same thing about how funny is was. Niles introduces his chair wiping with his literate, and sometimes confusing, language. Eddie is also a nice addition to the show. Also, Daphne appears with her "psychic abilities".
