I’m Not a Fan of Scrambled Eggs. Unless…

Please say this is true. C’mon. Do it. It would be incredible!

Or, as a sophisticated French person eating caviar before attending the opera would say, “incroyable!”¬†

Some sitcoms just need to keep going.

In less than 24 hours, the painful reality of a live-action ‘Aladdin’ hitting the silver screen in a few months sans the late, incomparable Robin Williams was relieved–in the form of an appropriate mind game—with the news from Dr.¬†Frasier Crane Kelsey Grammer regarding a ‘Frasier’ revival. And what’s encouraging is that it sounds like the original cast and possibly some original writers, with the exception of the late John Mahoney, may be on board to tell a genuinely exciting new chapter of the amazing NBC sitcom that ended in 2004.

We all want more of this.

And this.

“Wish me luck.”

These were the final words spoken on the ‘Frasier’ series finale. Hopefully, there will be another series finale in the future.

Upon hearing the news of a potential ‘Frasier’ revival from the man himself, we’re all wishing him and that small group of people luck on bringing ‘Frasier’ back on the air again.

Kelsey Grammer Has Been Listening to His Fans

“To be or not to be: That is the question.”

The actual¬†question today is whether the world will be gifted a ‘Frasier’ reboot? Let’s find out from a pretty good source, plus a sneak peek into Kelsey Grammer’s new Netflix film with Kristen Bell titled ‘Like Father.’

One thing’s for certain:

A ‘Frasier’ reboot would cure nostalgia’s ever-present pull whilst leading viewers into the future.

Nostalgia continues its successful run of being the vision of the future, specifically drawing from the totally awesome ’80s.

“Based on the Richard Dean Anderson starrer that ran for seven seasons on ABC, the CBS take is described as a reimagining of the television series of the same name, following a 20-something MacGyver as he gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening”
–Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter

Anderson’s Macgyver was the ultimate problem-solver involving things we take for granted, like an ordinary #2 pencil, a gum wrapper and a sponge. Not to mention his trademark haircut that (just a guess) may remain in the hair stylist’s portfolio from the original series.

Will this reboot live up to its high expectations, honoring the spirit and creativity of the original?

As successful shows, reboots, continuations and movie sequels have demonstrated in the past, there are countless alleyways and dead ends to drive into. Still, there is a right way to do these types of projects well, so as to escape the critics who are anxious to pin their targets in an uncomfortable corner.

Luckily for Macgyver, this is the scenario where he’s always thrived…

Happy Boomerang Thursday!

The initial “throw” was great, now time will tell if its return “back” to the cinema will meet expectations.

With its already existent universe (technically, its land and world), Disney is set to be one of the biggest winners of the year with the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this December. And remaining in the spirit of popular franchises and movies being rebooted, Disney just revealed the latest surprise in their magical portfolio at the D23 Expo 2015.

Will this adaption match the original from 1977? Realistically, no. But the hope is that it will be a fun and worthy second chapter in the movie’s warm, captivating story.

It’s fair to presume that if this asset gets out of containment, it will bring only imaginative happiness to the characters and audience alike.
