What's your favorite Cheers era?

Lately we've been enjoying the early Cheers reruns on Nick at Night. It made me think about how the show had several eras. I'm not sure which is my favorite, as I enjoy aspects of each.

What's your favorite Cheers era?

(Poll coming...)

I didn't like Diane at all, so that knocks out the first two eras. I started to slack off watching the show in the last era so I guess the Rebecca/corporate era gets my vote.

Hey can't pass up another opportunity to post my favorite Kirstie Alley photo (Obligatory in any Cheers or fat actresses thread.) Now did Shelley ever look this good?

+1 for Kirsty. Much better comic actress than Shelly.

I don't think I can pick a favorite. With all the changes, the show managed to stay fresh for so long.

My least favorite is the year (Season 10, I think) that Sam and Rebecca tried to have a baby. There were some good episodes that year, but that storyline just didn't work for me.

Tough call between Coach and Woody, but I went with Coach. Woody is a close second. Not a big fan of Rebecca.

I struggled with the Coach/Woody decision and went with Woody. The Sam and Diane dynamic was just unbeatable. There was real passion in that relationship. Sam and Rebecca never came close to that.

I'll say I always hoped they would end up together. Broke my heart a bit that they couldn't work it out.

Have to go with the Coach era.

Coach (after answering phone): Is there an Ernie Pantusso here?
Sam: That's you, Coach.
Coach: Speaking!

that looks like Howard Stern in drag. I've never been a fan of Kirstie Allie so I voted for Woody/Diane.

Woody Diane for me.. but I would say that was the sweetspot, with the periods on either side almost equally as enjoyable.

I never really got turned off the show myself.

I think it's a tie for me:
Coach Diane era and the build up of sexual tension between Sam-Diane and
Rebecca-Sam ownership, when the show went back to being funny instead of pretentious. I HATED the earlier Rebecca episodes and the ones with Roger Rees. I loved any episode with Harry the Hat, with Nick and with the battle between Cheers and Old Towne Tavern

What's up Mr. Peterson?

Let's talk about what's going in Mr. Peterson.

Coach Diane for me. Woody/Diane would be #2 for me.

Coach/Diane.

Although Frasier was a pretty good addition.

Definately the Coach/Diane era.

Sam: Who's your secret admirer?
[Carla beckons for Sam to come closer, which he does]
Carla: None of your damn business!
Coach: What'd she say?
Sam: "None of your damn business."
Coach: [angry] Well, excuse me for living! How would you like it if I said that to you when you asked me to teach you how to throw a knuckleball?
Sam: You DID, Coach.
Coach: Oh, then we're even.

A tough call between Coach and Woody, but I liked Woody just a little more. Definitely the Diane era more than the Rebecca era. Shelley Long was classic in Cheers, her facial expressions and body comedy was right on. Not so much in other things she's been in.

Your smile is so lovely; your hair is so clean . . .

Same with me. Woody was hilarious, but I had to pick Coach/Diane. Coach was the best.

Albania! Albania!

Now I've got the song in my head too. Thanks a lot!

Oh, gotta go with Coach...the one with Allyce Beasley as his daughter...when she was going to marry that jerk...heartbreaking! "You look exactly like your mother...and she grew more beautiful every day" OMG! I still tear up thinking about it. He was such a good guy. A real sweetheart. And didn't he come by his ...um... "Is there an Ernie Pantuso here"-ness by getting hit in the head too many times playing baseball? Woody was just a hick farm kid from...ooops! Indiana (I too am from the Hoosier state). hee hee!

Yes, I think he had the all time record for the most times "hit by pitch" in the minors (or was it majors?).
