It's been six months since Diane walked out/Sam kicked her out of the bar, and it hasn't been a good six months for either. Sam has gone back to his carousing drunken ways, none of which he attributes to the break-up with Diane. Diane has spent the last three months as a voluntary patient at Goldenbrook Sanitarium. Upon her release, she seems happy but she is still jumpy and nervous and can't even say Sam's name. The break-up and Sam's behavior has had an affect on others in the bar. Sam has continually slept with the replacement waitresses, who have in turn quit when things went sour with Sam. This instability has taken its toll on overworked Carla.

Rebound: Part 1 (#3.1)
9 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After several months after their break up Sam is getting drunk and partying again. Coach wants to help him and goes to Diane. She has been to a mental facility for several months and is now recovered. Agreeing with Coach to help Sam she bring a psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane to talk with Sam. He is also her new boyfriend.

A very promising season start. First if all it is interesting to see Sam being a drunk, we heard about it but now we see him do it, good job by Ted Danson.

And there is a new cast member that I am excited about. Kelsey Grammar as Dr. Frasier Crane. Watching the show now in 2014 I already know about this character and am looking forward to see more of him on this show.
