10. Sam Malone, not really that hot, yet amazing with the ladies. How does he do it? And by “it” I mean his hair.
9. Diane’s literary references: If you catch them it’s like getting a Jeopardy! question correct.
8. Carla’s Earrings: Pay attention to these if you haven’t already noticed. She wears the most bizarre things on her ears.
7. Kirtsy Alley: I find myself looking at her wondering if she’s fat, healthy, or just in awfully cut 90’s power suits. (Personal note: Pretty sure she’s the reason why I vowed at a young age that I would NEVER have to wear a suit to work.)
6. Cliffy’s accent. It’s so
5. Norm’s alcoholism. He’s the loveable drunk/ role model of slack -
4. Dr. Fraiser Crane: He’s one of the most durable characters of television. I really like the idea of the character in the ensemble of Cheers. A bar setting lends itself to the telling of personal stories. Sam’s so vapid. You kind of respect his advice, because he’s a recovering alcoholic, but he’s no expert (outside of bangin’ chicks). Dr. Fraiser Crane delivers the honest advice, but is neurotic himself which in a way is also honest. There’s a reason why he’s one of TV's Longest Running Characters.
3. Theme Song: If you have never heard the entire theme song, you’re missing out.
2. Great Writing. Sitcom’s by nature have simple story lines with clear cut plots. What makes a good sitcom is dialogue. Cheers has some of the best banter around.
1. The best straight men: Coach and Woody. Sure, they were bumbling idiots with hearts of gold, but they delivered so many hilariously naive responses. Skills like that make good television.
