    The themes stand up okay even today. The sibling rivalry. The complex relationship with his father. Niles' unrequited love for Daphne. Tremendous show - my favourite for years - and only recently surpassed as my favourite by Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    I have meant to watch it through from the start for a while... might just dig out my DVDs over the weekend...
    I like it too...but Daphne is just ridiculous for UK viewers, she’s so badly scripted, they could at least have got some sort of Manchester dialogue coach in there. Eddie and Frasiers dad have the funniest relationship IMO.

    It lost its way for a while when they introduced Daphne’s family. I almost stopped watching at that point. Can’t beat the sibling rivalry of Frasier and Niles IMO.

    Jane Leeves spoke about this on the bbc a few years ago
    They didn't want an actual Manchester accent or especially British sounding dialogue. They just wanted something that sounded a bit working class but that Americans would be able to understand. I love the part she plays - once you get past the accent of course.

    I felt the same at the time ut came out. I have since caught the odd episode with Daphne's mother on channel 4. I was surprised at how funny she was in them because I remembered her character really grating at the time. Turns out I don't have much bad to say about the series at all!

    Watched “Hitsville - The Making Of Mowtown” on Sky Arts last night. Best programme I’ve seen on Mowtown, was brilliant and gave excellent insight.

    The Lance Armstrong documentary on the BBC is a great watch.

    Was going to say that.

    I didn't know that it was out, and only caught the first episode last night.

    The Cult of the Family (Sky Crime), 3 episode series about a cult in Australia, quite unpleasant viewing.

    Just finished The Sopranos, my 2nd or third time through and my wife’s first. She thought it was decent enough, but it’s not really her kind of show. I hadn’t watched it in years but was quite surprised to find it wasn’t quite as good as I remembered and also slower. Still a game changer, but didn’t think it held up all that well nowadays, unlike something like The Wire which is every bit as good today as it was at the time IMO.

    I loved the Sopranos at the time - I have a mate who’s never watched it although I reckoned it be right up his street. He watched the first couple of episodes and gave up - he thought it was dated.

    I'm on my third attempt at trying to watch it. It's a slow burn over the first few episodes and I imagine much of the first season is hindered by the need to introduce and set the scene for so many characters. I sat down for a good few episodes this time and liked it well enough to go back to it.

    There are things that date it but you can say that about all good tv series that people still reference 20 years later.

    I'm not raving about It yet but an going to stick with it and see how it goes.
