I’ve always been known to appreciate the finer things…nothing new.
But I always watched Frasier (one of my favourite sitcoms of all time) with a certain degree of separation …I always felt that the Crane brothers were in a completely different spectrum from me. I always thought myself to be much more tolerant and more laid back.
I’m definitely more laid back and definitely not as tightassed as Niles or Frasier are…I maintain that assertion. But I am now seeing some similarities that I’m not entirely proud of…
I went out to dinner with my father recently and it occurred to me that I (with my dad) am basically the Crane brothers with Martin, minus some of the major bitchiness. Niles and Frasier are definitely bitchier than I am. But still… I get super embarrassed and impatient with my dad when we eat out. I always feel like he’s oversharing with the restaurant staff, and he never quite gets it when I try to share anything from my true culinary heart with him.
Either way, the more I rewatch the earlier seasons of Frasier, the more I realize how similar I am to the two biggest tightasses in TV history (mostly only to do with restaurants).
I love them, but YIKES.
