Will it hold on to its much-coveted “9am slot” on Channel 4? That is surely the only place in the schedule a sophisticated and beautifully crafted piece of comedy could ever want to be, where it has appeared as re-runs on UK TV for the last three hundred years. Or will it finally make it to prime time?
I am joking, of course because Frasier has always been a show so brilliant it can withstand any time slot. It is a commissioning marvel too – as a writer of comedy, and a veteran pitcher of new ideas, I can only stand back and admire the balls to head into a meeting with this: “Two wealthy white elitist snobby brothers are both highly successful psychotherapists who love classical music, art, opera and discussing philosophy, but – here’s the kicker – one is from the Jungian school and the other favours a Freudian thesis, so the inherent tension is always hilarious.” I mean, hats off to all of them.
