    Oh wow, me too then! :) But I guess I have you beat, as I also have watched The Resident since it began last year. It's a medical/hospital show in S02 and Ms Leeves plays a doctor.

    A quick wiki shows she just started this season (S2), and there have been seven eps so far, so I'll nudge your count up to 392.

    But who's counting? :p

    My guess this will rival the revival of Murphy Brown as a big dud, but I'll watch just to see.

    It's hard to predict. I always thought Frasier was a top ten all-time TV show, whereas MB was just ok. And like you (and I'm sure millions more), I'll watch just to see, if it happens.

    But Frasier was a product of its times, and the times they are a changin'.

    I loved the show and still watch on Netflix, but it was pretty weak at the end, IMO. Plus, I was not a fan of Niles and Daphne together. I think they had way more chemistry apart than they did together.

    I'd like to see it as Frasier's third act, as Grammer has mentioned a few times. Not in Seattle. Not with Niles and Daphne around. Something new.

    Better make it 393, if you watched Seinfeld!

    Oh, I'd forgotten the infamous Frasier/Seinfeld crossover episode. :p

    Oh, that's right. Wasn't it the 'The Contest' episode? IIRC, her character ended up with John-John. :D (Poor Elaine!)

    Yep, she played Marla the virgin in one of the most famous Seinfeld episodes of all.

    She was actually in three episodes of Seinfeld. I think she may have been in the finale, too. I haven't seen that in years so I don't remember for certain.

    How about a Frasier origin story. That would be fun. Oh wait, that's Cheers! ;)

    My personal favorite Leeves performance is in "To Live and Die in L.A.". Oh my.

    Yeah, she was in the finale, actually I think every guest that was ever on Seinfeld was in the finale ;)

    I was pretty sure Marla was introduced in an episode before "The Contest", but I hadn't checked. Didn't recall that she was in three before the finale, which I also hadn't considered.

    Frasier retires for Florida, and put in a retirement community with Cliff, Norm, Carla, Niles, Roz, and the sports guy (I want to say Mad Dog, but I don't think that's right). Let the antics begin!

    Was the 'sports guy' the one who owned that other bar and he and Sam were always competing?

    Oh wait - sorry! Mad Dog was the skeevy womanizer on Frasier.

    The one I'm thinking about was the Sports guy on Fraisier's radio station. But that would work too :)

    He really did a good job with that character, particularly since the actor who played him is gay.

    Oh geez! Sorry about that. It sounded weird in my head but then a lot of stuff does since my memory died.

    Thanks for correcting me! :)
