The return of a beloved sitcom character tops the DVD releases for the week of May 21.

“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 now-adult 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.”
