Between Hurricane Ike, visiting relatives, and trips out of town, I
seem to have missed all of the great season premieres this fall (not to
mention the new series). And now I need your help... what in the world
should I watch?
I'm going to see if any of these shows are available for online
viewing, but for now, I'd love to hear your opinions. What's worth my
short allotment of time to watch television each week?
What old favorites are back with a vengeance?
- What new series are catching viewers' attention?
Back To You
But arrogance is still funny to watch
I'm a late-night fan of Kelsey Grammer. I never have time to watch
prime-time television, so I rely on late-night reruns to keep me up to
date on my favorite series. A huge fan of Frasier, I was admittedly skeptical about seeing Back To You. Would it measure up to Grammer's excellence on Frasier and Cheers?
Would I be able to see beyond the Crane brothers to embrace the new
lead duo with Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton (I'm also a fan of
hers from Everybody Loves Raymond). With such a great cast, I thought the series had a good chance.
And I was right. It's a funny show and worth watching. It took
some getting used to the new "ladies man" Frasier - ahem, Chuck Darling
- but I'm coming around to see the new character as independent of Dr.
Frasier Crane. I imagine the show's creators expected this kind of
mental conflict from their viewers. The writers, costume designers,
and Grammer himself have done a great job keeping the arrogance of
Frasier while eliminating the courteous, kind-hearted, gentleman and
scholar we loved from that series.
The thing that makes the series successful is that we still get what I call "belly laughs"...
