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?

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.
