Laura San Giacomo,
Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
The lives of the disparate group of employees and patrons at a Boston watering hole called Cheers over eleven years is presented. Over much of this period, Sam Malone, a womanizing ex-Boston Red Sox pitcher and an alcoholic, owns the bar, its purchase and this life which was his salvation from his alcoholism which was largely the cause of the end of his baseball career. He ends up having a love-hate relationship with intellectual Diane Chambers, who he hires as a waitress and whose cultured mentality is foreign to anyone else in the bar. He also has an evolving relationship with Rebecca Howe, who managed the bar for the Lily Corporation which bought it from Sam, but whose outward business savvy belied the fact that she was a mess of a woman who was struggling to find her place in life. The regular patrons are largely a bunch of self-identified losers, who bond because of their shared place in life, and because Cheers is their home away from home, and in many ways more a home than ...Written by
In episodes where scenes are set in the pool room at the rear of the bar, a poster for the "Boston Barleyhoppers" can sometimes be seen. The Barleyhoppers were a running club that met at the actual "Bull & Finch" pub in Boston. See more »
The locations of the men's and women's restrooms varies throughout the series. Usually the women's restroom is closest to the bar and the men's is closest to the pool room, however this is inexplicably switched on numerous occasions throughout the series. See more »
Interesting little article here. It says that, uh... the average human being only uses seventeen percent of his brain. Boy, you realize what that means? We don't use a full, uh... sixty-four percent.
Some don't use even more.

This excellent series is now available on Netflix. all episodes are available but I recommend watching the first four or so and then skipping to the 1985 season when Woody Harrelson joined the cast. The writing and performances seemed to become much better year after year until the series ended. All of the main characters received numerous awards for their performances between 1985 and 1992. This series introduced many actors to the viewing public for the first time. Te Danson, Shelley Long, Woody Harrelson, Rhea Perlman, Kelsey Grammar, Christy Alley (this was her first really successful venture) and many others. It is unfortunate that George Wendt and John Ratzenberger, never received Emmys for their outstanding work here.
