Product Description

CHEERS - THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON focuses on the colorful staff and offbeat patrons of a friendly Boston bar where "everybody knows your name." Starring Shelley Long as Diane Chambers and Ted Danson as Sam Malone, Cheers co-stars Nick Colasanto as "Coach," Rhea Perlman as Carla Tortelli, John Ratzenberger as Cliff and George Wendt as Norm. Guest appearances by John Cleese, Bob Costas, Dan Hedaya, Bebe Neuwirth and Brent Spiner.


Even as it bid goodbye to one of its core characters, Cheers enjoyed a fifth season of high hilarity that still holds up decades later. The cliffhanger at the end of the fourth season began a season-long courting dance between Sam (Ted Danson) and Diane (Shelley Long) in which both want to get married--but never at the same time. They argue, they see a pre-nuptial counselor (an Emmy-winning John Cleese), and then one has to make a final decision. But Sam and Diane weren't the only ones exploring relationships. Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) once again meets Dr. Lilith Sternin (Bebe Neuwirth) and, with the help of Diane, are soon cozily coinhabiting. Woody (Woody Harrelson) gets a visit from his ex-girlfriend (Amanda Wyss), and meets Coach's niece (Cady McClain). Carla (Rhea Perlman) seems finally rid of the sleazy Nick (Dan Hedaya, who was spun off into a thankfully short-lived series called The Tortellis) only to meet a Bruins goalie named Eddie LeBec (Jay Thomas). Then again, there were some non-relationship events, such as Diane's trying out for the Boston Ballet and the gang's classic Thanksgiving dinner at Carla's house (in which we finally get to see Norm's wife, Vera, sort of). But more than anything, the fifth season belonged to Sam and Diane. Their relationship ends in touching flash-forward and a wish to "have a good life." If only the departing actor's subsequent career had been so good. Like the fourth season, the DVD set has no extras. --David Horiuchi

Cheers was one of the best sitcoms of the 80s. It was funny, entertaining, and timeless. My favorite characters are Norm, Diane, and Carla because each was unique and very funny in their own ways.

Here's all the episodes you'll get with Cheers - The Complete Fifth Season:

The Proposal (September 25, 1986)
We find out that Sam's telephone proposal was to Diane. But Diane feels that skirt-chaser Sam is just on the rebound.

The Cape Cad (October 2, 1986)
Diane goes to Cape Cod only to meddle and cause trouble during Sam's weekend with another women.

Money Dearest (October 9, 1986)
Cliff couldn't be happier when he finds out that his mom is going to marry a rich man. But he sings a different turn when Esther's fiance decides to donate all of his wealth.

Abnormal Psychology (October 16, 1986)
Diane assists Lilith so that Frasier will find her more appealing.

House of Horrors With Formal Dining and Used Brick (October 30, 1986)
Cliff helps Carla find a new home which is within her budget. But, the house is haunted! The Cheers gang learn that Carla is scarier than any haunted house.

Tan N' Wash (November 6, 1986)
Norm starts a new business, the Tan N' Wash, which the gang wants to invest it. But the investment is a washout.

Young Dr. Weinstein (November 13, 1986)
Stung by Diane's cold behavior, Sam tries to impress her by getting reservations at the most exclusive spot in Boston.

Knights of the Scimitar (November 27, 1986)
Cliff prods a reluctant Norm to join the lodge and Sam thinks Diane has invented a suitor to gain his interest and get some extra attention.

While Cheers continued on for another six seasons after this fifth season, for many fans of the show, it ended when Shelley Long's character Diane Chambers walked out of the Boston bar for the final time as Ted Danson's Sam Malone watched her leave, knowing she would never come back.

The chemistry between Sam and Diane is what really drove this comedy for the first five seasons that it was on the air. The two actors were truly in sync and their back and forth banter and will they or won't they romance that was on and off countless times during the five years, was something that has not been captured on television many times since.

While Long left the show, as I mentioned, the show continued on for another six years, with Kirstie Alley essentially taking over for Long. While Alley's Rebecca Howe and Sam had good chemistry, it was tough to live up to what had come before with Sam and Diane.

Season four ended with Sam proposing to Diane and we pick up in season five as she rejects him, then quickly changes her mind. Of course, once he was rejected, Sam decided it was over and didn't want to take her back until midway through the season when they finally officially got proposed, while Sam was in court after Diane brought him there on assault charges. As the season drew to a close, the marriage was still planned, but Sam knew better as he said his goodbyes as the door closed behind her for the last time as a cast regular.

While this season marked the final regular cast appearance by Long, it was the first season as a regular cast member for Kelsey Grammer as Dr. Frasier Crane. Dr. Crane was a recurring character for most of the previous seasons, but it was this year that his name came in the opening credits.

Brilliantly funny, clever and wise, Cheers is a TV classic. The smartest thing they did was to allow cast members to come and go and yet still refer to and laugh at them as the seasons progress. Like real life. Diane was the riotous outsider, Rebecca the sad-sack loser. Additions like Frasier and Lilith kept things fresh and moving. Sam the heart of it all who grew and changed season by season. An American classic.

CHEERS was a great TV classic that set the tone for all the comedies that followed.

CHEERS will always be remembered as the comedy series that broke away from the formulas of old and ushered in a new era of style in the way comedies was done.

The only reason I give Season Five 4 stars is because the series was a bit in a rut at this point, bogged down in the Sam and Diane = Marriage storyline that grew old and monotonous.

If Shelly Long had not left the show when she did, CHEERS may have never become as great as it did.

I liked Shelly Long in Seasons 1-4, but by the 5th season the Sam & Diane see-saw romance stories were getting a bit stale.

With Diane's departure and the arrival the following season of Rebecca (Kirstie Alley), the writers were forced to move in a new direction and breathe new life into the series that took the show to even greater levels.
