Nice idea, poor execution,
This review is from: Frasier - Best Of Christmas [DVD] (DVD)I am a huge fan of "Frasier" and I am currently collecting the rather nice looking full season sets, so it took a lot of self-control not to purchase this item.
Basically, it contains a selection of the "best" Christmas episodes from the show's history: in other words, every Christmas episode apart from 1. Therefore, I'm a bit confused over the choice of episodes: it misses out the hilarious 11th season Christmas show, "High Holidays". Why? Don't ask me! However, it does have the rather poor season 8 episode "Mary Christmas".
So, it's a shame that this episode isn't included, but for us full season collectors, you need to offer a little more than just a selection of episodes. How about a nice set of audio commentaries? Some featurettes about the show's Christmas (or hell, just the show's) history? A trailer or two would have been quite nice. Deleted scenes? Heck, I would have settled for a scene selection menu! Unfortunately, this offering contains none of them.
This is certainly a nice idea, but I suspect this will only win over the casual fan. Had it contained a number of special features, this would have been in my basket now. Sorry!
