A show that has been around for quite a while, but nonetheless stands the test of time is Frasier. I tune in regularly on directstartv.com to watch the hair-brained antics and comedy routines this show is known for. With a disgruntle old father, two persnickety psychiatrist brothers, and one English caretaker€”this show is nothing short of hilarious.
Frasier, the main star of the show, always likes to have everything in his life perfectly in its place; nothing is tolerated to be out of order. His father, who lives with him, is just the opposite€”messy, unpretentious, and lacks even basic tact. The feuding that follows is a full half hour of genuine comedy at its finest.
In all, the show ran for about ten years and ranked as one of the highest watched shows of all time. It's no wonder with a cast like Kelsey Grammer, Jane Leeves, and others that it was as successful as it was. The story and cast is set in Seattle, WA and has been a home to local celebrities throughout its running.
The day to day problems this family experiences in their lives is bound to give its viewers “food for thought”. I often find myself thinking, “How could they possibly find themselves in this ridiculous situation.” Then I remember I'm watching a T.V show.
