Frasier is an American sitcom and spin-off of Cheers, airing on NBC from 1993 to 2004. The plot involves Dr. Frasier Crane returning home to Seattle, WA and moving back in with his father, retired police officer Martin Crane and his live-in assistant Daphne Moon, and introduced Frasier's brother Dr. Niles Crane, who was even stuffier and more pretentious than Frasier was. Rather than return to a regular psychiatric practice, he worked as the host of a call-in radio show on KACL.


The Frasier fandom can be found online in a number of different forms.

Niles Crane/Daphne Moon is currently the most popular ship on AO3 [1], fuelled by canon attraction, beginning in the first episode.

A number of active shitposting groups exist, include a number of private Facebook groups. [2][3] Image Macros are the prevailing format in these groups, and frequent reference is made to fan-favorite epsiodes of the show.

There is also a fan-transcription project for the show,[4], which has produced and archived transcripts for all 264 episodes of the show. This site is named after the in-universe radio station which Frasier Crane works for.
