At this point, I’m not nervous ABOUT the Frasier revival over at Paramount+, I’m nervous FOR it.

But I’m willing to give it a shot, because I’d have to think that it can’t be worse than the new Night Court

… can it?

You never know though, Roseanne Minus Roseanne is on season five now, I believe.

I’m honestly surprised John Goodman is up to doing a TV show full time again.

I’ve never watched it, so I don’t know how involved he still is these days.

Wikipedia says he’s still on it.

Let’s see. Frasier without all the actors and writers that made the show funny? Can’t miss.

Look, if we’re going to revive a sitcom, the obvious choice is Woops!

Well, are there any Gen X artifacts that haven’t been revived in some way for a quick buck? Funky Phantom? Spuds McKenzie? The Hamster Dance?

Oh John Goodman is still in episodes, but I don’t know how many or how big his role is.

John Goodman is dead! Again! But it doesn’t look to be serious.

Hedaya’s in his 80s and Kasem’s pushing 70. I’m not sure the dyn—aw, screw it, order up ten episodes, do a marketing blitz and cancel it before it airs.

Now, there was a show that didn’t get a fair chance.

What about the guy who played Hedaya’s son and was pretty funny? He was also in The Tortellis, right? If he’s still acting, we can build the show around him.

Well, he hasn’t acted much in the last two…or three…decades, but why not? We’ll make it a big comeback for him, and convince people they knew who he was! Or should know! It’s all about BUZZ, baby!

Can we all agree that if we are going to revive a sitcom it has to be “My Mother, the Car”?

Hey, that worked for Ke Huy Quan.

It could star one of the lesser Van Dykes. (Lesser than Jerry, that is.)
