Frasier Review 2023 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
The original series is one of my favorite comedies. I’ve watched it all the way through a few times because it was smart, witty, and original. While not perfect, the writing was usually crisp, mostly avoiding the typical tired sitcom tropes, but putting a fresh spin on those it evoked.
However, this reboot is just plain sad. I realize times have changed, but it’s as though no one involved other than the titular character has ever even seen the original show. It’s an amalgam of worst: we get 202x era political correctness combined with ’70s era cartoonish supporting characters and a heavy-handed laugh track.
Perhaps this sounds like a “but this isn’t the original Frasier” lament, but I was prepared to enjoy it on its own merits, seeing Frasier in a new and different scenario. Instead, all I saw was a stale sitcom combining the quality and sensibilities of “The Ropers” with the wokeness of pretty much every other preachy “comedy” from recent times.
I hope it gets better, but I’m not holding my breath. The character deserves so much better. If nothing else, get rid of the nephew! Both the character and the actor are terrible.
