Storyline

Things at Cheers have changed. Sam has sold the bar to a large corporation and with the proceeds of the sale, bought a boat and is sailing around the world. As employees, Woody and Carla are forced to wear corporate uniforms. The new manager, Rebecca Howe, is a beautiful but tough as nails boss who has worked her way to this position from a business school background. Norm and Cliff no longer frequent the bar, as don't many of the old regulars, except Frasier. Norm gave the "new" Cheers a shot, but as a new crowd started populating the bar, the old refrain, "Norm!" as he enters, has left their vernacular. Diane's book deal didn't work out, and is in Hollywood writing for television. And Carla and Eddie have broken up. But the one constant: Carla is again pregnant, this time with Eddie's child. Into this new world, Sam throws everybody for a loop and returns to Cheers; apparently, he sank his boat when he hit a reef in the Caribbean. He came back to the bar, not in an effort to buy it ...

out with the old in with the new
22 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

Can't top the previous review. And particularly agree with the Diane commentary. Indeed, the actors for Diane and Coach were excellent. The others were good. But, for my money, the Rebecca character was average at best and played by someone nowhere near so accomplished or versatile as Shelley Long - she had a reasonable singing voice too. That said, its hard to see how the original story line could have continued for long with the Diane/Sam relationship. So I think she was right to leave, whatever the reasons - going out at the top is never a bad thing. I could watch Cheers "Part 1" series 1 through 5 (i.e. with the Diane character) time and again.
