Product Description

It’s the cozy little Boston bar where everybody knows your name…welcome to CHEERS – the Emmy award-winning smash-hit television series that kept the laughs uncorked for 11 years.

Amazon.com

Cheers: The Complete Ninth Season, like every season of the great NBC sitcom, is graced by a number of very funny episodes involving the going-nowhere denizens of a Boston bar. The year begins with Cheers' multi-millionaire owner Robin (Roger Rees) heading to a probable term in jail, selling the bar back to Sam (Ted Danson) and putting its manager, Rebecca (Kirstie Alley), who also happens to be Robin's girlfriend, out of work. But what's really interesting is the onset of Sam and Rebecca's intimate relationship at the same time, which ceases soon after it begins but leaves such a residual level of caring that Sam invites Rebecca to come back and work at Cheers when her fortunes flag. In the wonderful "Rebecca Redux," Sam hires an assistant (Bryan Clark) with a mythic all-American grin and such a good, positive thought for everyone that a near-mutiny develops among Cheers' customers when Rebecca replaces him upon her return. While the Rebecca-Sam-Robin relationship dynamic works itself out over the season, other perennial storylines pick up their threads from previous years. "Cheers Fouls Out" is the latest in a long line of mind games between Sam and the (unfortunately superior) Gary, owner of a rival bar that annually kicks Cheers' behind in a basketball game. This time, Gary comes up with a couple of redwood-tall ringers to go up against the likes of Norm (George Wendt) and Woody (Woody Harrelson), but Sam has a secret weapon: Kevin McHale of the Celtics. Not that Sam's luck can be expected to improve even with the odds seemingly in his favor.

Sam's gullibility rears itself in another episode, "Pitch It Again, Sam," in which failed Red Sox pitcher "Mayday" Malone is goaded into taking the mound once again in a duel with a veteran hitter. Hoping for the redemption of his dim, major league reputation, Sam encounters an unexpected challenge to his decency at the last moment. The hilarious "Rat Girl" finds Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) concerned when his psychiatrist wife, Lilith (Bebe Neuwirth), grieves so deeply following the death of her favorite lab rat that she carries its little corpse around in her purse. "Uncle Sam Wants You" begins an understated story thread about Sam's desire to be a father, while "Carla Loves Clavin" puts cynical barmaid Carla (Rhea Perlman) in the horrifying position of having to be nice to one of her favorite targets, blowhard Cliff (John Ratzenberger). Cliff's mom (Frances Sternhagen), by the way, shows up unexpectedly in the painfully funny "Ma Always Liked You Best," prodding at Cliff's newfound independence and stoking her son's jealousy by lavishing Woody with attention. "Bad Neighbor Sam" initiates Sam's long-running feud (which never works in Sam's favor) with the owner of a restaurant above Cheers. "Woody Interruptus" sees poor Woody upset by girlfriend Kelly (Jackie Swanson) returning from Europe with a boyfriend, while Cliff babbles on about having his head cryogenically frozen. It's life as usual at Cheers, and as always the show's community of misfits is a joy to behold. --Tom Keogh

After waiting years, seriously, for this release, I was really upset to find the episodes are edited, songs are removed, and all 5 discs are shoved into one standard sized DVD case.

The distributors really cheapened the integrity of this otherwise wonderful show. Of course fans should still buy it because afterall, seasons 10 and 11 aren't out yet and the company won't do them unless this one sells okay. Just be warned, you may watch it and your favorite scenes and songs are missing.

Aside from sporting new packaging and a 5-disc format for Season 9, there's a little box on the bottom of the back which holds that most dreaded statement for any fan: "Some episodes may be edited from their original network versions. Music has been changed for this home entertainment version."

Since it has been several years since I have seen these shows, I won't be able to determine what has been changed, but I felt compelled to alert potential buyers that the music royalty hounds have savaged another classic show. These monopolistic behemoths must be stopped.

Beyond that, it is another season of Cheers. The video and audio appear to be excellent. So 5 stars minus 1 star for the edits.

I have to say...it took forever for Season 9 to come out - a little too long in my opinion. While shows that have not been heard of in ten years and have had no real air time - they release their seasons back to back every 4-6 weeks, while we wait years for a show that won 6 Golden Globes; 65 other wins; and 138 nominations. There are a couple of down sides to this Season, and one of them is the music that others have mentioned - especially the "I Fought the Law" scene - I had to rewind it a few times to try to hear what song it way - - still have no clue - and it makes no sense. I did also catch the swearing as well. Otherwise, I am happy to have it - it has been too long. The case it came in is awesome - although it does not match my other ones, it's all good - most show seasons do not match anymore due to them changing the cases. Hopefully Season 10 will arrive in a decent amount of time - 4-6 weeks perhaps. Cheers to you!!!

I've been looking forward to the release of season 9 since the last was released, and I have to admit that I am a bit disappointed for a few reasons. First off is the changing of music in the shows. On the first disc there is an episode where Sam taunts Rebecca with the use of the song "I fought the law and the law won." This song has been completely replaced with another song that I do not recognize. The joke is completely killed, ruining the best moments of this particular episode, and Sam comes off as looking ridiculous in the process. Secondly, in "Rebecca Redux" Sam clearly utters a profanity that could not have possibly been on the original broadcast. After deciding to hire Rebecca back to her old job, he remembers he has to fire his current manager, Earl. He remarks "Shoot, I forgot about Earl." However "shoot" is a euphemism for the actual curse he uses. It was more than surprising to hear, and I had to play it back a few times to verify what I heard.

The weak nature of the episodes, compared to the previous seasons, is further marred by the above mentioned problems. Yes this is still Cheers, but when you remove great jokes and put in profanities that have no business being there, it simply hurts the show. Also a note about the packaging. This is the first season to be in a single dvd sized case, with all five discs being contained therein on individual holders. After the initial disappointment of not matching the past seasons, I realized that in a way it was superior. There is far less wasted space with this set. I honestly wish they had all been done like this, though I imagine many "collectors" will be upset. However I find it to be refreshingly minimalist while still looking nice overall.

I would have been much happier with this set had they just kept the shows to the original broadcast.

"Cheers" is my favorite television show of all time and one of the all-time best shows, but the show was starting to get stale by the ninth season. Still, a lesser season of Cheers is a great season.

Sam is back in charge of Cheers in this season and things feel normal after a few seasons of corporate ownership. It also featured the 200th show (hosted by John McLaughlin) and such classic sub-plots as Frasier reading Dickens to the Cheers gang and the short-term bartender Earl. As far as characters, the ninth season saw the introduction of Henri and John Allen Hill and the increased prominence of Paul Krapence (the same actor had a different name in earlier seasons). It also saw the (temporary) end of Robin Colcord as a featured character.

(One other note: Although many have complained about the new packaging, I prefer the slick and compact packaging of all give discs in one normal-sized DVD case to the large and bulky packaging of the previous seasons.)

Cheers was beginning to lose its luster, partly because Sam and Rebecca's relationship had "matured" to the point where they were true friends, but it still remained a fantastic show with a special cast. Although the overall quality of the show had begun to decline by this season, there are too many great jokes, episodes, and characters to give it any less than five stars.
