Brilliant Sitcom

'Frasier' follows the life of radio psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane, his father Martin Crane, Martin's live-in physiotherapist and health-care worker Daphne Moon, Frasier's younger brother Dr. Niles Crane and Frasier's producer Roz Doyle as they navigate through different situations, relationships and more in this classic 90s sitcom. What You Need To Know - This show contains very clever humour which may only appeal to maturer audiences but there is a lot of physical comedy involved too. - The subject of romantic and sexual relationships is strong in some episodes. Frasier is frequently seen on dates and sometimes these pairings escalate to lots of snuggling and kissing. - There are some episodes which reference prostitution and stripping - The language is not too strong - a**, b***h, c**p. Some of the language is stronger but very infrequent - sl*t, w***e, b*****d - Characters infrequently smoke cigarettes and cigars - Frasier and Niles have sherry or another alcoholic drink in practically every episode - There is no strong violence - There are numerous emotional scenes Many episodes do display positive messages

Great Show

This show has some mild sex scenes( such as nuzzling necks, kissing, and snuggling) but depending on the maturity of your child they shouldn’t be affected by it. I started watching this show when I was 12, the jokes can be hard to understand depending on your knowledge and age. But it is a show that has family values and how to hold on to important relationships and also teaches life lessons.
