Season 1 of Cheers

Meghan enjoys watching Netflix on her iPad. And just the other day she randomly decided to start watching Cheers from the first Episode. Season 1 was 1982!

I watched a few scenes and the show was better than I remembered.

I remember liking it as a kid, but then realizing when I was older that it wasn't as good as I remembered (it is a bit slow compared to shows today) however today I have a new appreciation for Cheers. The writing is pretty good and a little bit of dry humor which I appreciate.

It is also fun to have the Boston theme.

In case you were wondering about the first season of Cheers:

SAM = YES
REBECCA = NO
DIANE = YES
WOODY = NO
COACH = YES
CARLA = YES
NORM = YES
FRASIER = NO (LILITH = NO)
CLIFF = YES
REBECCA's Millionaire Boyfriend = NO
The Judge from Night Court as a Magician = YES!
"Cheers is filmed before a live studio audience" = YES

I forgot about Coach's character which was WAY better than Woody's.

i just finished reading Tina Fey's book last night and she talks about what a good Pilot episode the first Cheers episode was (particularly compared to 30 Rock which she says had a really rough Pilot episode)!
