It might be tough to quantify, but it would be interesting to break TV shows into categories (original idea, rehash/reboot, sourced from book). I'd bet quite a few cable and Netflix dramas are sourced from books.While I like Frazier I wish the networks would develop new shows not reboot old ones. There has to be original ideas out there somewhere.
Try watching an episode, earlier in the run the better. If you like that type of sitcom--dry wry humor, witty, clever writing, character development rather than cheap jokes--then it may be for you. Like all sitcoms, it may take a couple to get familiar with the characters.I never really watched the original. I've seen a few bits here and there on syndication, like when it's on at the Doctors office or something, but never actually watched the show.
I do think they're overdoing it, though (hypocritically?) I am looking forward to Murphy Brown.I was always a Frazier fan but I'm not on board with them reprising all these old sitcoms
With that said, I think a lot of this will depend on how well Murphy Brown does.
But we don't know that actually happened, since at the last of the episode he flew to Chicago chasing his match-making girlfriend. We don't know for sure if he ended up in LA as planned.My wife reminded me that at the end of the series he moved to LA to be on TV.
IIRC, the only season where the closing credits of the finale doesn't list them is Season 5, where the station changed its format and the show ended with a Mariachi version of the themeI liked trying to figure out the callers voice.
They had over 100 celibrites over the years.
Gee thanks for making me feel old.Frederick would be in the his early 30s now...
They could have Frasier now doing a successful podcast. That would make it more current.A lot will depend on the writers, there are a number of ways to go. Radio has changed, could you imagine the call ins a national talk radio show Frazier would get ? How about dropping him in a city with a lousy opera company and no real coffee houses. Or have him do radio and private practice, or day time television. Drop him in L.A., he'd love and hate it.
