Product Description

Just as everyone had anticipated throughout season one of Cheers, season two opened with Boston bar owner Sam Malone (Ted Danson) and waitress Diane Chambers (Shelley Long) declaring their mutual passion. But romance does not always translate into love, and, after a turbulent 22 episodes, Sam and Diane had broken up over a silly triviality - or had they?

In other developments, Cheers' other waitress, acerbic single mother Carla (Rhea Perlman), again gave birth (her fifth child), and had to endure the wedding of her slime ball ex-husband Nick Tortelli (Dan Hedaya) to the equally odious Loretta (Jean Kasem). And one of Cheers' best customers, trivia-happy postman Cliff Clavin (John Ratzenberger), heretofore only a recurring character, was now billed among the series' regular stars.

From Amazon.co.uk

It looks great: season two of the situation comedy many consider the best ever produced on American television has a superb presentation on this DVD collection. The colours are rich, the images sharp--a vast improvement over those murky reruns in perpetual TV syndication. Then, of course, there are the consistently brilliant episodes from Cheers' sophomore year. Despite its low-rated debut in 1982, the ensemble farce set in a Boston bar confidently returned with several strong story arcs, including the turbulent, screwball romance between intellectual poseur Diane Chambers (Shelley Long) and affable primitive Sam Malone (Ted Danson), romantic conflicts for the sexually voracious and deeply cynical barmaid Carla (Rhea Perlman) and marital separation for beloved barfly Norm (George Wendt). With John Ratzenberger signing on as a full-time cast member (playing pompous jive-slinger and postman Cliff Claven), and those opaque one-liners by the clueless Coach (Nicholas Colasanto), Cheers was firing on all cylinders.

Episode highlights include "They Call Me Mayday", in which talk-show personality Dick Cavett, playing himself, convinces Sam the public would be interested in the former major league pitcher's autobiography--a notion that throws the unpublished, would-be novelist Diane into disbelief. Also wonderful is "Where There's a Will," guest-starring George Gaynes as a rich, dying man who leaves the gang $100,000 on a paper napkin will. "No Help Wanted" finds Sam's friendship with down-on-his-luck accountant Norm strained when the latter has a go at the bar's books, while the great "Coach Buries a Grudge" features the addled, elder statesman of Cheers delivering a memorable eulogy for a friend after discovering the dead man had an affair with his wife. Opinions vary about the worthiness of Cheers' latter years (the show ended in 1993), but no one disputes the merit of its ground-breaking start. --Tom Keogh

Very funny and very clever. We'll be watching this over and over again and it just gets better with every viewing. It has held up well even though the fashion dates it. The scriptwriting is brilliant and incredibly well-paced and it has a real feel-good factor except that one laments the loss of the art of comedy and good writing evident in most of the American comedies showing today.

This was where Cheers really took off. Season two saw the beginning of the Sam/Diane relationship which would continue to be on agian/off agian for the next 3 years and formed the basis for most of the plots. This season is full of so many great moments such as Diane trying to impress Dick Cavertt with her poetry. For me though a real classic moment was the pre credits sequence in the episode Battle of the Exes when Diane tries to book a romantic weekend at a little hotel by a lake hoping that Sam will come to think of it as 'Their' place only to be asked when she books a room for Malone if she is talkng about Sam Malone and does she want his usual room?

As with all the Cheers series simply excellent, genuine comedy that doesn't have to rely on the 'crude' side of life to make you laugh, I've now bought the first 3 series and look forward to buying the rest.

Another brilliant season of Cheers.
Maybe the greatest ever American sitcom
The picture quality is adequate. The lack of extras is a letdown again.

The 80's comedy classic carries on the good work started in Season 1 with Sam and Diane starting their on again off again relationship. Very good performances from the cast and guest stars including Christopher Lloyd in the 2 part season finale. A slightly dated but still funny show.
