Cheers (DVD) Review
One of the greatest television comedies in history, Cheers is an absolute must see for anyone who's ever had a regular hangout "where everybody knows your name". The shows centers itself around a friendly neighborhood Boston bar named Cheers. The bar is owned by former Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Sam Malone (Ted Danson). Sam has two employees – bartender Ernie “Coach” Pantusso (Nicholas Colasanto) and waitress Carla Tortelli (Rhea Perlman). Things are great for Sam until he hires a jilted graduate student named Diane Chambers (Shelley Long) to waitress in the bar. Regular barflies Norm Peterson (George Wendt) and Cliff Clavin (John Ratzenberger) round out a strong supporting cast… The Cheers DVD offers a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere “Give Me A Ring Sometime” in which the gang at Cheers first meets Diane when she spends the day in the bar waiting for her fiancé, distinguished Boston University professor Sumner Sloane, to return from meeting with his ex-wife (where he hopes to retrieve his grandmother’s ring for Diane).
Sumner never returns, resulting in Diane accepting a job at the bar… Other notable episodes from Season 1 include “Sam At Eleven” in which Sam’s ex-teammate turned sportscaster Dave Richards (Fred Dryer) arrives at the bar to interview Sam for the eleven o’clock news only to end up ditching him for John McEnroe, and “Pick a Con… Any Con” in which Coach is being played by a conman, prompting Sam to enlist the help of Harry the Conman (Harry Anderson) in order to get Coach’s money back. Only Coach has a few surprises of his own… Below is a list of episodes included on the Cheers (Season 1) DVD: Episode 1 (Give Me A Ring Sometime) Air Date: 09-30-1982 Episode 2 (Sam’s Women) Air Date: 10-07-1982 Episode 3 (The Tortelli Tort) Air Date: 10-14-1982 Episode 4 (Sam At Eleven) Air Date: 10-21-1982 Episode 5 (Coach’s Daughter) Air Date: 10-28-1982 Episode 6 (Any Friend Of Diane’s) Air Date: 11-04-1982 Episode 7 (Friends, Romans, Accountants) Air Date: 11-11-1982 Episode 8 (Truce Or Consequences) Air Date: 11-18-1982 Episode 9 (Coach Returns To Action) Air Date: 11-25-1982 Episode 10 (Endless Slumper) Air Date: 12-02-1982 Episode 11 (One For The Book) Air Date: 12-09-1982 Episode 12 (The Spy Who Came In For A Cold One) Air Date: 12-16-1982 Episode 13 (Now Pitching, Sam Malone) Air Date: 01-06-1983 Episode 14 (Let Me Count The Ways) Air Date: 01-13-1983 Episode 15 (Father Knows Last) Air Date: 01-20-1983 Episode 16 (The Boys In The Bar) Air Date: 01-27-1983 Episode 17 (Diane’s Perfect Date) Air Date: 02-10-1983 Episode 18 (No Contest) Air Date: 02-17-1983 Episode 19 (Pick A Con… Any Con) Air Date: 02-24-1983 Episode 20 (Someone Single, Someone Blue) Air Date: 03-03-1983 Episode 21 (Showdown 1) Air Date: 03-24-1983 Episode 22 (Showdown 2) Air Date: 03-31-1983.
