#59 – Marvel's Frasier Invasion
The one where everyone raises their prices.
1990s Pacific Northwest radio icon Dr. Frasier Crane is back, but is the new Boston-set reboot of Frasier really listening to what viewers want? We’ll share some of our favorite classic Frasiers and compare them to the new Paramount+ reboot (which, like the sherry at a Bean Town bar, we found… questionable).
- Chris shares his love of CNN Max (he’s aware this makes him a middle aged man now, thanks for asking!)
- The Daily Show announces more guest hosts (including some returning favorites!)
- Dianne learns the difference between Space Whales and Earth Whales (it’s a sci-fi thing!)
- Price hikes at both Netflix and Disney+ leave Chris and Dianne wondering how much spaceships and comic books are really worth these days…
- …and it turns out Marvel is asking itself the same thing?? We’ll explain!
