5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference for the show - but not quite perfect. 20 Oct. 2012
By Brian I - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was working on an online wiki for Cheers, and I picked up this book as a reference. The author wrote a textbook on the show which is outside my price range and which I cannot find in a local library, and I hoped this book might serve as a substitute.

The book serves as a great reference for the show. It is loaded with information on each episode, on the awards won, and on the actors that appeared on the show. The actor biographies were my favorite part. They read as if the author sat down with each of them. I don't know if he did, but that's the impression I got. A lot of the book's information can be found for free on sites like iMDB.com, but I thought the bios alone were worth the price.

Where the book really missed for me was on the character bios. They read as if someone watched every episode, and simply jotted down notes on facts learned about each character, and then threw them all in together without regard to context. To take one example: the biography for Diane Chambers. In an early episode, Sam loans a lucky bottlecap out, and the loanee lost the bottlecap. Sam begins to struggle without the cap, and near the end of the episode he reveals to Diane that the cap served as a reminder of his drinking days. He credited it with helping him beat alcoholism, and worried that without it he might relapse. When Sam told Diane the bottlecap had been lost in Kansas City, Diane suggests that they should go, since she's 'always wanted to see' the town. The context of it was that she wanted Sam to take a positive action, rather than relapse into alcoholism. Diane was trying to encourage Sam. But the author included this factoid in Diane's bio - that she's always wanted to see Kansas City - as if it were literally true, which is sort of disappointing.

Nonetheless, that's not enough to take it off of five stars. If you are a fan of the show, this is a no-brainer pickup for your Kindle.

1.0 out of 5 stars He would say something like 'The entire cast was like a family - except ... 28 Feb. 2016
By blondewriter99 - Published on Amazon.com
As a huge Cheers fan, I really wanted to like this book. But I stopped reading, infuriated, after the author repeatedly cast aspersions on Shelley Long, who played Diane Chambers, without any source material. He would say something like 'The entire cast was like a family - except for Shelley Long, whom no one really liked" - but offer no factual basis for this. If Bjorklund was getting this from press accounts, he should cite them - as I'm presuming he was not there himself. The fact of the matter is, the show wouldn't have existed past Season 1 without Long's performance, which won an Emmy award, and went a long way towards drawing the country's attention to the show, which was still lagging in the ratings. Additionally, there just wouldn't have been any show at all without the electric chemistry of Long and Danson - as Danson has acknowledged. I urge Mr. Bjorklund to visit Cheers writer Ken Levine's blog, where he repeatedly defends Shelley Long against rumors that continue to circulate about her, and flat-out debunks stories that she was a diva or that she tried to get Kelsey Grammer fired (something even he seemed to think). Unfortunately what has truly happened here is that there's a bitter aftertaste even after all of these years that a woman would dare to leave a beloved TV show to try and forge a movie career - but why shouldn't she? She's an actress - of course she wanted to play different characters and show her range. By the way, her movie career was much more successful than Ted Danson's. Just saying.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Book May Be Good But the Author is A Pretentious Prig 26 Oct. 2012
By Felecia B. Killen - Published on Amazon.com
I truly was looking forward to reading this book, but after reading the material preceding the Table of Contents, I was turned off. You're not recreating a masterpiece like War and Peace. Sorry, but you come off as so full of yourself, and not in the great manner of Fraser or Niles Kramer! Will shoo my friend away!
