At least that’s the title I imagine when I hear that Kelsey Grammer is working on a Frasier reboot. Frasier is one of the finest sitcoms ever made. I think The Big Bang Theory is a poor man’s Frasier swapping fine living and opera for geekdom. The writing for Frasier was consistently great and the show received a slew of accolades for it. A continuation of Frasier in a new setting with a new cast is how I can see them pulling this off. That’s exactly what they did with Frasier Crane’s character from Cheers in the Boston setting to Frasier in Seattle. Then we could get characters from Frasier sprinkled in every now and again, like they did with the Cheers stars guest appearances in Frasier. Though I would hope to see Niles appear a number of times.
The more I think on the reboot the more profound I think the show could potentially be. Frasier could have become more balanced in later life to the way his father lived. At this point, he may even be an author of psychiatry or a teacher rather than a radio host. I for one hope this show gets a green-light and can rival its predecessor.
Let me know in the comments if you think Frasier should be rebooted.
Frasier Crane, I’ll be listening,
