Final episode of Frasier last night then, shown immediately after B*g B*****r, as if to emphasise the quality. A dignified exit, I thought, even if it did fall into the old US sitcom trap of ridiculous sentimentality towards the end.

I think Frasier will stand the test of time much better than that other recently-ended American sitcom. Friends, with its reliance on 90s pop culture and "cool" dialogue (like… you know, whatever), will be irrelevant within 10 years. Whereas Frasier never tried to be cool, just funny, and was all the better for it.
