Great cast, interesting premise, needs a simple tweak or two ...
30 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, you have to give credit to Kelsey Grammar for getting in shape for his new series - he is sporting the physique of an Olympic gymnast! Now THAT is showing dedication to your profession. His acting chops are as sharp as ever - but people are going to be looking for FRASIER at every turn and how can anyone be expected to live up to that? It may not even be humanly possible. The problem is that Kelsey still LOOKS almost exactly like Frasier - so you constantly find yourself expecting a Frasier line to come out of him. Here's what they need to do to parry the FRASIER curse: simply give Kelsey a mustache -- or maybe even a beard. He looked great with facial hair in the costume party episode that just aired in syndication. Are you listening, producers of HANK? It could turn out to be a show saver. This is the best way to allow the nega-talented Kelsey the fresh start he so richly deserves. Another thing: the Grady character needs more dimensionality - as soon as he enters we are totally prepared for the mean-spirited sarcasm. Way too predictable - and not really that funny. Everything else on the show is terrific!
