Yep, the very first Cheers! Diane Chambers and her fiance come into Cheers to make a telephone call on their way to a romantic wedding in the Caribbean. Diane's fiance has to leave for a bit, but never returns. Sam makes the biggest mistake of his life when he offers Diane a job.

Volume 7 in the "Cheers" collection offers us "The Best of Sam and Diane." The common theme is actually that others might be coming between the happy couple. The first episode is "Power Play," the season premier from the show's second year (Original Airdate: 09/29/83). When last we left Sam and Diane they had finally kissed and now the gang at Cheers has to deal with the new relationship between the two. Not everyone is happy with the new state of affairs, especially Carla. Later than same season, "Just Three Friends" throws Markie Post into the mix as Diane's old friend Heather Landon, whose flirting with Sam makes May Day uncomfortable (Original Airdate: 12/15/83). He confesses this to Diane who assures him there is no problem, so Sam becomes just friends with Heather (a new relationship for him to be sure), but now Diane is the one who has serious doubts. Meanwhile, back at Cheers, the gang has an attack dog in Sam's office. Both of these episodes (#23 and #33 if you are counting) are written by the Charles brothers and directed by Jim Burroughs.

"Give Me A Ring Sometime," the pilot episode for the celebrated television sitcom "Cheers," still stands up 20 years later. Sam "May Day" Malone (Ted Danson), the ex-Red Sox relief pitcher and recovering alchoholic, runs his Boston bar with the less than able assistance of his old pitching coach Ernie Pantusso (Nicholas Colasanto) and Carla Torteli (Rhea Perelman), the wise-cracking waitress. Into this madhouse comes Diane Chambers (Shelley Long), a teaching assistant about to leave for the Caribbean with her current fiance and former literature professor, Summer Sloan (Michael McGuire). By the end of the episode Diane has been jilted, Sam offers her a job as a waitress, and the rest is televison history. Written by Glen Charles & Les Charles, the script sells us on the characters right away. My only complaint is that I would have liked to have seen more bar arguments like the one they have in this episode concerning "the Sweatiest Movie" of all time. Summer Sloan might be a nattering boob, but the man does know his sweaty films. This tape is the first volume in the "Cheers" series.

Paramounts smash hit sitcom, Cheers enjoyed an astoundingly successful run between 1982 - 1993. In that time, a total of 270 episodes were made and (purley from my own personal opinion) most of the series finest episodes were amongst the first handful of seasons which saw the odd but enjoyable match of Ted Danson and the adorable Shelley Long who played neurotic accademic, Diane Chambers to utter perfection. Ted Danson is equally effective who is the central figure in the series, running the aptly named Cheers bar. He plays the likeable Sam Malone whose previous claim to fame had been as a relief pitcher for the Boston Red Scox baseball team. Diane Chambers arrives at Cheers with her snobbish fiancee. He leaves her alone at Cheers whilst he says he'd be back within the hour - he doesn't show up and knowing full well she'd been jilted in favour for someone else she takes a job as a barmaid at Cheers which soon brings her more down to earth and likeable and slowly succumbs to Sam's boyish charm. Their rocky on-off relationship was fun to watch and both spark off each other and show naturalistic affection for each other making it all the more beleavable. Giving superb backing support is Rhea Perlman as the tough-talking, fiery Carla who provides many laughs through the series. Her timing and witty delivery is simply immpecable and was a key element in making the series such a clear winner.
These collection of episodes are classics and remind you of what a fantastically, well-written series this truly was. Give Me A Ring Sometime was the fabulous premier episode where Sam and Diane first meet, Sam At Eleven is where a local sports writer interviews Sam but the story is cut from going on air.

The Cheers pilot is perhaps the greatest TV pilot ever done. It convincingly sets in motion what will become an historically successful 11 year series. Shelley Long's brilliance cannot be overstated. When Sumner Sloane leaves the bar for the second time and Diane asks, "Sumner, how about a kiss?" Sumner responds, "Maybe, I'll play it by ear," referring to the former wife he is going to see.

When Diane stands there, stunned, and drops her head in recognition of this terrible betrayal, she looks utterly desolate. Everyone else in the bar sees this and they hurriedly turn away to try to leave her a little dignity. Watch Shelley as Diane when she is not speaking. She conveys a galaxy of shifting emotions as she sits on her bar stool pondering her future. In acting, what is not said is as important or more important than what is said. In spite of Diane's pretensions, she is sympathetic because she is a kind and loving person regardless of her sometimes haughty exterior. Shelley Long brings this out unforgettably. Ted Danson is a worthy scene partner in more ways than one. The first joke of the series is a great one.

Diane gives Sam the phone message from a woman Sam is avoiding. Diane says, quoting the woman on the phone; "You're a magnificent pagan beast." Sam, with wonderful timing replies, "Thanks, what's the message?" Brilliant. If you don't appreciate this episode as you should, watch it again and watch closely. You will see masters at work.
