Dismissed Major, we thank you for you service , however I think your legacy might be bigger than we think...
Has anyone noticed that Frasier Crane is very similar to Winchester? both are pompous, intellectual snobs who have a liking for vintage wine. Perhaps Ogden Stier's portrayal of Winchester inspired writers and then created Fraser Crane, a character that brought Kesley Grammer multiple awards-not to mention the show itself.
I could be wrong but i'd like to think it's true.
