I've been watching Frasier and evaluating it from 90s standards vs. late '10s standards is hard. Like one time they have people call into AM radio to give childhood stories, so Frasier and Niles can secretly write down the stories and publish them in a book (sounds unethical, boss) (also an AM radio celebrity in 1993, what the fuck? how?)

Or, you know, slapping women on the ass and making racist impressions day in day out, that seems fucking unthinkable now but they still have jobs

there's a Cheers clip where the joke is that Frasier hypnotized Lillith to undress when he mentions tambourines behind her and everyone at the bar is really amused by the low key rape undertone???

look i like provocative humour, i'm into crass stuff but there's behaviour that seems *pulls at shirt* and was it in the 90s too? or is it just different now?

my goal of this thread is not "Frasier Crane is Canceled" it's "was the comedy the same in the 90s but those undertones were more humourous? i don't follow"
