Why Frasier Deserves More Recognition

Edward Gardiner on why Frasier deserves more recognition…

If I asked you to think of a sitcom beginning with ‘F’ which first aired in the 90s, what immediately springs to mind? I’d wager about 90% of you are currently thinking “well it’s Friends, of course” – or at least would be had I not incepted you by writing ‘Frasier’ in the title. Whether you’d be thinking it in such a polite manner is also up for question.

And that’s fine, by the way. Friends is wonderful and brilliant, and completely deserving of its adoration amongst the 90s generation. This isn’t just a list of reasons Frasier is better than Friends, or, for that matter, The Simpsons or South Park or Seinfeld. This is simply a list of reasons Frasier is one of the greatest sitcoms ever to grace the small screen, and why more people need to watch it.

'Mr Robinson' Canceled by NBC While 'The Carmichael Show' Renewed
On the heels of my post listing the new TV series with black actors in starring/lead/series regular roles coming to your TV screens this fall...

Casting 'Clown Car '16, the Movie'

Casting 'Clown Car '16, the Movie'
Start with the title: Clown Car! may sound like the movie someone will inevitably make about the 2016 presidential campaign, but how about evoking those great Seventies wacky-journey films like Death Race 2000, Vanishing Point or Smokey and the Bandit?

When I raised the question on Twitter, suggestions included All the President's Wanna-Bes, Every Which Way But Left, Cannonball Rug, A Kochwork Orange and the subtly appropriate Hair.
