Product Description

The complete fourth season of the TV series Cheers.

Amazon.com

For its fourth season, Cheers served up a new bartender. Following the death of Nicholas Colasanto, who had played Coach, the season premiere introduced Woody Boyd (Woody Harrelson), the Indiana hick who certainly didn't raise the bar's collective IQ but had his own brand of endearing goofiness. That episode, "Birth, Death, Love and Rice," also explained what happened at the end of season 3 when Sam (Ted Danson) chased Diane (Shelley Long) and Frasier (Kesley Grammer) to Italy in hopes of preventing their marriage. The end result is that Diane returns to work at the bar and resumes her sexually charged flirtation with Sam, and Frasier becomes a brooding presence always looking for a way to win her back. Jennifer Tilly guest-stars as one of Sam's ex-girlfriends who actually hits it off with the petulant psychiatrist, but stealing the show in the same episode ("Second Time Around") was Dr. Lilith Sternin (Bebe Neuwirth), in what was supposed to be a five-minute one-shot role. The impossibly buttoned-up Sternin was such a perfect match for Frasier that she later became a regular cast member and won two Emmys.

In other memorable episodes, Andy Andy (Derek McGrath) returns to terrorize Diane ("Diane's Nightmare"), the gang tries to turn the tables on Gary's Old Town Tavern in a bowling match ("From Beer to Eternity"), and Frasier sets up a night at the opera ("Diane Chambers Day"). In the three-part season finale ("Strange Bedfellows"), Sam begins dating a politician (Kate Mulgrew, later of Star Trek: Voyager) running for reelection. Diane decides to work for her opponent before taking a more drastic step, leading to Sam's memorable telephone call that served as a cliffhanger leading to season 5. Unlike previous seasons, the DVD set has no extras. --David Horiuchi

Cheers The Complete Fourth Season is finally being released. Amen! I got the first three seasons the day they came out, had them reserved weeks in advanced, and I'm gonna do the same with The Fourth Season of the greatest show of all time. This is the first season with Woody Harrelson, as Woody Boyd, since Nicholas Colasanto, who played Coach died late in the third season. I will truely miss Coach since he was classic, and hilarious, but I welcome Woody Harrelson to the cast. He's hilarious too! The Complete Fourth Season of Cheers is phenominal. A lot of classic moments, including The Cheers gangs first mix up with Gary's Old Towne Tavern, at the bowling alley,and the classic three episode season ender when Sammy is dating the politician women Janet Eldridge, and at he end askes Diane to marry him. This season is also the first time we see Lilith. Cliffie, and Norm, and Carla are as hilarious as ever as well. So join the gang at Cheers for its classic Complete Fourth Season. I just read on tvshowsondvd.com that there are gonna be no extras on CHEERS or Frasier The Complete Fourth Seasons. But we buy Cheers for the episodes, so its ok with me. Cheers is still classic, and I don't need extras. The episodes are enough. I certaintly won't give it less stars just because of no extras. The episodes themselves merit the 5 star rating. So still join Sammy,Cliffie,Normie,Woody,Diane,and Carla, in a place where everybody knows your name.

Season 4 is one of my favorites. The season opens with Sam back from his disastrous attempt to stop Diane's wedding to Frasier Crane in Europe and the episodes give the pair plenty of opportunity to explore their odd and affecting dance of love/hate. Diane breaks it off with her alleged dream mate, Frasier (Kelsey Grammar), who descends into a bitter barfly.

Sam seems to pull back on his flagrant womanizing - in full force in season 3. Perhaps AIDS had finally made the mainstream media and his sleeping with everything that moved wasn't considered so harmlessly charming anymore - season 4 is the first time we hear anyone suggest that Sam is opening himself up for an eventual paternity suit. As someone who doesn't watch much TV these days, I don't know if characters like this still exist - is unabashed promiscuity still considered funny?

Ted Danson's natural charm makes you forgive his character's rather egregious behavior - but by the end of the season, Sam was sorely testing my sympathies. While I don't think any actor has portrayed extreme horniness with such appealing acuity before - watch his impressive physicality as week after week he anxiously bounces around Diane in various efforts to bed her - the fact that he repeatedly seduces her into a passionate clinch only to play dumb when she asks him what it all means started to grate on my nerves.

There's a few wonderful episodes where Sam starts to realize his mortality - the one where he suffers a hernia and ends up in the hospital, staring out into a rainy sky and contemplating his encroaching middle-age is particularly touching - and you start to feel the character is truly becoming multi-layered.

My wife and I laugh and laugh. The writing is terrific and obviously has not aged with time. Ted, Shelly and all the crew are terrific actors. We will start Season 5 soon and are looking forward to continued enjoyment. Even though we have seen many of these episodes when they first were played, we enjoy them as if they are fresh.

I was a young man when watching Cheers on TV. My wife and I loved it then and we love it now. It is our go-to program before bed when we want something light and funny. Cheers is a great show, always entertaining and funny.

Show was beginning to lost it's sharp edge here, and the loss of Coach was clearly evident. Woody was a decent character, but his character had a fine line to walk between innocent naive youth and outright stupidity. To his credit, his humor and appeal hit far more often than it missed, and he was a worthy addition to the cast. Diane's character was still very charming, cute, and true to form.Her jabs at Sam's intelligence were growing thin by this point though, and Sam's fixation of himself also grew increasingly tiresome and trite. What were once off the cuff, flippant and funny comments were deteriorating into increasingly sleazy and arrogant behavior. I'm not a prude at all, but this detracted from the overall allure of the show. Cliff and Norm's characters were still spot on, although the ideas for witty banter and back and forth were apparently losing steam. The appearances of Frasier were very welcome, and a refreshing interlude of what was becoming a more and more mundane viewing experience. Carla was always the weak link in this show, and her insults missed the mark even more than usual than the show's first 3 seasons. She got a good one off now and then, like one every 2 or 3 episodes. Overall a very fun and enjoyable show though, and head and shoulders above the shows it was competing against in the era. But the unraveling had undeniably begun. Then again, what do I know? Season 4 and 5 marked the 2nd part of the series, in between the Coach years and the dismal Kristie Alley years. Not great. Not horrible. And not overly memorable either. For me, it's a One Time View Season and it'll sit on the shelf for ages before it sees any play again. Increasingly ridiculous, unbelievable story lines and a light hearted view of failing marriages and infidelity keep the eyes rolling. Each cast member from time to time slips so far out of character credibility is strained to the breaking point.
