Overall Rating: Good

Matt Mira and Kevin Smith revisit the once-popular NBC Show Frasier, providing commentary to every episode of the television show.

The Good

These two are no slouches when it comes to podcasting. Between the two of them, Matt Mira and Kevin Smith are a part of nearly a dozen podcasts that span three podcast networks. These two are a treat to listen to no matter what the topic is. Even Frasier.

The Bad

It feels like the hosts of Talk Salad & Scrambled Eggs don’t know each other very well, that they don’t have a solid rapport. They’re both very affable and interested in each other’s opinions but they don’t seem to have a great chemistry with each other. At least not yet. But let’s give this niche podcast some time to develop. Perhaps these two will become the Frasier and Niles of podcasting. Wait. Did those characters have good chemistry? I guess I’ll have to stay tuned to Talk Salad & Scrambled Eggs to find out.

The Ugly

This is a podcast about Frasier. More importantly, this is a podcast that’s relying on its audience to use it as a commentary track for a TV series that’s been long defunct. The good news, here, is that Frasier may very well be worth a second look. Or even a first look if you missed it in its original run.
