Great episode of the podcast this week. I always enjoy when you have Ashford Wright on and hearing his perspective on Cheers. I’ve enjoyed his Seinfeld podcast that you have appeared on a couple times.
I agree that the Frasier and Diane subplot was kind of excruciating. Frasier is one of my favorite characters but the show did not know quite how to use him at this point. Fortunately by next season they let him move on from his fixation with Diane to have a relationship with Lilith. Nonetheless there is consistency in his character throughout the years because his unrequited feelings for Diane continue to be referenced well into the Rebecca years, including when Diane returns in the final episode of the series and even later on episodes of Frasier when Shelley Long appears.
I definitely like how the memory of Coach is honored in this episode. As you point out the way they discussed Coach here helps to establish Woody as a character in his own right and not just a younger version of Coach. I like how Woody will develop more of an edge as the series goes on that makes him even funnier than he is in Season 4.
Best part of the episode is easily the nod to Coach. I wish they had done it a bit more.
