Cheers

NBC 1982

Sam, a former pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, owns and runs Cheers, a cozy bar in Boston.

Several wacky characters make the bar their home-away-from-home, including sarcastic waitress Carla, beer-loving Norm and Boston letter carrier Cliff.

You ever cuddle up to your favorite blanket on a chilly night? There's a bar of your favorite chocolate, a flashlight, and your favorite book, all inside your blanket. It's warm enough to be snug but not stifling. The stars are out. It's a good night. That is what this series made me feel like. I'll miss everyone. Beautiful, beautiful series.

TURNS OUT I ACTUALLY LOVE DIANE AND REBECCA EQUALLY

Carla was fun at first but after a few seasons she just became a pain in the ass.

One of the last sitcoms which doesn't have the fake puncheline after puncheline.

Average season rating: 7.6363… I'm sure that would be a more interesting number if I went and averaged all of my individual episode ratings, or at least the raw season averages (instead of the rounded versions I set as my Trakt ratings), but it's still interesting that ultimately, my rating rounds off to the current site-wide average of 8/10. Of course, _Cheers_ has flaws. Sometimes the writing (and therefore characters) was a bit inconsistent, but it's not about the individual episodes. Watching _Cheers_ really is comforting, like walking into a bar "where everybody knows your name."

I’m revisiting an old friend I watched on a regular tv a long time ago, while living in Boston. I enjoying every episode, maybe a side effect of getting old.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
