Frasier – Scrambled Eggs All Over

It’s nice to see Frasier is back in action, and showing its original quirkiness.

For anyone, who still watches Frasier (Tuesdays, at 9 pm, on NBC), the show has been on autopilot for the last couple of seasons, and it wasn’t even heading anywhere good.

Why is it that the good ones die young, and the lousy ones live forever? OK, I’m not going to equate Ritter with the masters of comedy, and I’m not about to start praising every little thing he ever did. He was no king of comedy. But the guy was funny.
