Overview

Frasier is not a series that requires stunning visuals to succeed, which lessens the importance of a top-notch visual transfer. However, it is enjoyable to notice improvement over the original television version, and this release delivers with clear, bright colors and minimal defects. Music cues do not appear in this series, so the sound is mostly dialogue. The 2.0 channel stereo transfer effectively presents the conversations in an understandable manner. The audio is very centralized, but it springs clearly from the utilized speakers. The extra features on this four-disc collection are pretty light, but they still offer more than the basic television release. The highlight is "Behind the Couch: The Making of Frasier," a 20-minute collection of interviews with the entire cast, and creators Peter Casey and David Lee. They cover each character and its origins, which provides some interesting tidbits. The remaining supplements are fairly minor, including a commentary track from Casey and Lee during the pilot episode. They do give some good insights, including their original ideas for the series, but their conversation is only mildly informative. "Frasier Crane's Apartment" gives numerous small featurettes about the basic elements of Frasier's residence. Finally, each disc contains a short "Celebrity Voices" feature that presents the scenes and reveals the voices included with each radio segment.

We have enjoyed every episode of Frazier, never seem to get tired of the humor. Can't wait to purchase all the other season's.

This is wonderful. The writing is hysterical, the actors first rate. Kudos to Kelsey Grammer for allowing himself to be part a true ensemble - it has made the show an instant classic. I never watched until a few years ago, in reruns, and so I'm seeing many of these for the first time. I'm laughing out loud. And I have a bit of a geeky crush on Niles Crane.

Frazier is so funny. It is too bad that the show stopped when it did. The first season is full of memorable moments....rettx
