Frasier is a comedic sitcom that centers around the main character, Frasier Crane, played by Kelsey Grammar. Frasier lives and works in Seattle, Washington. He lives with his father, Martin, his father's dog, Eddie and his father's live-in home health aide, Daphne Moon. Frasier works as a psychiatrist, but he is not your everyday psychiatrist. Frasier has a radio show which is designed to answer callers' mental health questions. On each episode of the show, Frasier is faced with a dilemma. He might be worried or troubled by a radio caller, or he may be having issues with his father or his neighbors. Frasier also often encounters trouble with the various women he is trying to woo. After a failed marriage, Frasier is determined to find someone to share his life with, but his dating plans go awry more often than not. Frasier's life is made more complicated but also more enjoyable by the people around him. His father, a retired police officer, is very different from Frasier, and the two must try hard to get along. Daphne Moon has very strange views about life and often tells Frasier that she is getting a psychic premonition. In addition to the people he lives with, Frasier has frequent interactions with his radio producer and friend, Roz, his ex-wife Lilith and his brother, Niles, who is also a professional psychiatrist. Niles complicates Frasier's life even further when he realizes that he is in love with Daphne, even though he is already married to a woman named Maris. As Frasier does his best to escape each embarrassing situation he finds himself in, viewers learn more about him and his family and friends. Each episode of the show is funny and follows a different thread, but audiences will also notice a heartfelt and somewhat serious undertone to the show as the stories of the Crane brothers and their various dilemmas progress.
