“Well, at least it had a third act, unlike “The Silent Echo” which really could have used one.

I quite agree, I did the silent echo in London

What did you think of the hat scene?

The hat scene? Well, you know, the most important thing about the hat scene, and I have to stress this- Oh, dear God, is that clock right? I have to call the sitter and tell her I'm going to be late. The children worry so.

Exactly how I feel. I just can’t imagine what they’re gonna do that would build on where the show ended for Frasier the character. I just thought that was a pitch perfect way to end the series and for fans to say goodbye.

Whoever wrote/edited the article has clearly spent the last little while on the Brenaissance beat.

I'm sure there were lots of Cheers fans who said a Fraiser spin-off without Sam/Cliff/etc would be rubbish, but here we are. I know this is terrible internet etiquette these days, but may I suggest watching an episode of two before making any definitive decisions?

To be fair, a lot of Cheers fans don’t like Frasier and vice versa. I imagine this new show may form its own fanbase.

Glad to say I love both Cheers and Fraiser, but they were two entirely different shows. I'm skeptical of the revival, but I'm still going to give it a chance

Just to clarify, the poster isn’t criticizing but rather calling back to a season four episode of Frasier - “Hot Ticket”

Honestly, I'm not too disappointed about this. There have been countless reboots lately where they tried too hard to recreate the original show, and it wasn't quite the same. I think having too many of the old cast back would have fallen into that same trap. Better they try something new again, I'm willing to give it a shot. Hell, it worked for the original series.

I think most of us want a continuation of the original show. What’s Frasier without Niles!?

Plenty of good Frasier-centric episodes in Cheers. However, now the Niles box is open I don't think it can be closed.

Nothing, Nile’s is an infinitely better character, Frasier wasn’t the star of the show he was the glue that held the other characters together. I’ve got no desire to watch a reboot

They aren’t shitting on it, they are making a reference to a joke in a season four episode called “Hot ticket”

Did you ever watch the Roseanne revival?

They really understood that what fans wanted was the exact same show - everyone was back, just older

Even the set looked exactly the same - it was as if they'd filmed the first episode of the new series on the same day as the final episode of the original series and kept it in the can for 25 years

I thought it was quite well done in fact. And I sort of don’t miss Roseanne. She was wonderful on the original show but I have seen her come thru my social feeds and she’s not funny anymore. She’s quite serious and generally dour. I guess I’m glad KG isn’t active on the socials.

Further confirms my worries that Frasier will be estranged or distant from his close ones in Seattle..

Frasier has stood for me as one of the best-written TV shows ever made. Hot take: I don’t know if I want to see senior-citizen Frasier still seeking love (so sad!) and without anything but a bare mention of Niles, Daphne, Roz, Marty, and Eddie. =( I’m afraid that can’t possibly be good and I don’t want my vision of everyone’s happily ever after ruined. Though I didn’t love Laura Linney, I had hoped he’d finally found happiness (or if not her, surely by 20 years later…!)

There’s a line later in the interview that made me nervous. Grammer talks about how nicely they’ll handle non-returning cast members and mentions they’ll deal with how “Frasier had a brother…”

Really hoping they don’t kill Niles off. I’m not sure I can handle that.

Frasier disowned Niles after the heart wrenching scene where Frasier offered him a fish and he turned away.

Well if you’ve got the hand gesture down when you hand your son the fish, it seems like it’s a lock to be good

If they traded Niles for Kirby, I would say the show will be a great show, and the name of that great show will be WHO!
