A free spirited yoga instructor finds true love in a conservative lawyer and they got married on the first date. Though they are polar opposites; her need of stability is fulfilled with him, his need of optimism is fulfilled with her.
The lives of the disparate group of employees and patrons at a Boston watering hole called Cheers over eleven years is presented. Over much of this period, Sam Malone, a womanizing ex-Boston Red Sox pitcher and an alcoholic, owns the bar, its purchase and this life which was his salvation from his alcoholism which was largely the cause of the end of his baseball career. He ends up having a love-hate relationship with intellectual Diane Chambers, who he hires as a waitress and whose cultured mentality is foreign to anyone else in the bar. He also has an evolving relationship with Rebecca Howe, who managed the bar for the Lily Corporation which bought it from Sam, but whose outward business savvy belied the fact that she was a mess of a woman who was struggling to find her place in life. The regular patrons are largely a bunch of self-identified losers, who bond because of their shared place in life, and because Cheers is their home away from home, and in many ways more a home than ...Written by
When Shelley Long (Diane) and Rhea Perlman (Carla) became pregnant in real-life during the third season, only Perlman's pregnancy was written into the script. For most of that season, Long was mostly filmed behind the bar or from the neck up. See more »

Boy, I envy Sammy and his carefree lifestyle.
Night after night, he dates pretty girls, while I sit here and wrestle with the world's problems.
You do not.
What do you mean? Last night I let out a moan at the thought of nuclear war.
It wasn't 'cuz of nuclear war, it's cuz we ran out of beer nuts.
It was a combination of the two.

The series finale was edited into three half-hour episodes for syndication. Part one of the 1 hour "200th Episode Celebration" episode, edited into two parts for syndication, is the only syndicated episode that features the complete opening sequence used throughout the series. The first scene of the teaser of the series' first episode, where Sam walks from the Pool Room into the Bar area of Cheers', was edited completely out of the syndicated broadcast. See more »
Still one of the best sitcoms, over 20 years later!
Not only was this show good enough to run a full eleven seasons, but, over twenty years after the last episode, it still holds up! The topics are still relevant, the dialogue is still funny, and you can still see real-life versions of these scenarios play out in your local favorite watering hole. I've already called out a few Cliff Clavins!
Whereas most shows that start out hot eventually lose their steam and fizzle out, this series changed characters, tweaked plot lines, and kept just enough of its essence true to execute a strong run throughout (I think the show got better when Woody came aboard!). I normally hate sitcoms, but this is one of the best ones I've ever watched. Queue up the complete series on Netflix, and watch every last episode.
