Frasier Complete Collection [DVD]
About this deal
The character of Niles was not part of the original concept for the show. Frasier had told his bar friends on Cheers that he was an only child;   however, Sheila Guthrie, the assistant casting director on Wings, brought the producers a photo of Pierce (whom she knew from his work on The Powers That Be) and noted his resemblance to Grammer when he first appeared on Cheers. She recommended him should they ever want Frasier to have a brother. The creators were "blown away" both by his resemblance to Grammer and by his acting ability.  They decided to ignore Frasier's statement on Cheers and created the role for Pierce.   Pierce accepted the role before realizing he had not read a script. Once he was given a script, he was initially concerned that his character was essentially a duplicate of Frasier, thinking that it would not work.  The first table reading of the pilot script was notable because the producers had never heard either Pierce or Mahoney read lines, as they were cast without auditions.

Seasons ten and eleven were originally broadcast in high definition, and the disc set reuses those existing masters. Though they are perfectly satisfactory, there have been improvements in film scanning and editing technology since then, and eagle-eyed viewers will note that the last two seasons aren’t quite as sharp or detailed as the first nine. There’s less visible film grain here, with occasional hints of digital noise. There’s nothing objectionable or wrong with these last two seasons, but they’re not the night and day improvement found in the earlier ones.Frasier is one of the most critically acclaimed comedy series of all time and one of the most successful spin-off series in television history.  Critics and commentators have broadly held the show in high regard.
