Latest adventures of ‘Frasier’ among new DVD releases


The return of a beloved sitcom character tops the DVD releases for Tuesday.

“Frasier”: Kelsey Grammer is back in the title role in this Paramount+ reboot of the long-running series that sees Frasier Crane relocate to Boston and living with Freddy, his nowadult son.

“Grammer, for his part, looks remarkably unchanged from the character as remembered,” writes Los Angeles Times TV critic Robert Lloyd in his review. “And Grammer is so completely Frasier — a deceptivel­y unsentimen­tal character in a basically sentimenta­l show — that the new edition, for all its innovation­s, wraps itself comfortabl­y around him.”
