Frasier was always a great show, and eight of the best episodes are now packaged together on the Frasier Fan Favorites DVD out March 6th from Paramount Home Entertainment. I was kind of hoping for a bunch of episodes that reunited Frasier with his old friends from Cheers, like the one where Diane comes to Seattle wither her new play.
But I guess that since the Cheers Fan Favorites is being released on the same day, there’s not really much point in bringing all those characters back. Instead, we get what feels like eight randomly chosen episodes –
Frasier gets sick and Niles fills in for him at the radio station, which makes Frasier paranoid that Niles could take his job. Frasier gets caught in Daphne’s room a couple of times and they fight. There’s a radio play, a bunch of episodes where Niles lusts after Daphne, and a huge amount of romantic misunderstandings.
Had I not been a Frasier fan for years, I would think that the show was nothing but romantic misunderstandings and people chasing other people. Actually, I guess it kind of was.
But it was a great show about chasing women and then misunderstanding them. The only problem with a DVD featuring eight of the fan favorite episodes is that it leaves me wanting more. In addition to wanting the Cheers related episodes, I wanted some with Lilith, which I always thought were funniest. Then again, the Cheers Fan Favorites covers all the Lilith bases as well!
