Production residue, or "dust," in new product requires cleaning of several discs before use. Real nuisance.
Segments on each disc require depressing manual "play" button to begin the next installment. Nuisance. Each disc should be formatted with a "play all" element, so the viewer only has to tend to the play button one time per disc.
Otherwise, the color, sound and viewing quality of the reproductions are good to very good.
The only thing I didn't like about the DVD set is that you are forced to watch previews for other shows before you have access to the Cheers episodes menu. I don't think this is right considering the cost of the DVDs.Cheers - Seasons 1-11
The picture quality on some of the disks isn't the best -- I don't know if this is due to the quality of the original transfer or the compression used on the DVD.
Not much in the way of extras in the set, unfortunately. Only seasons 1-3 have extras.
Carla (Rhea Perlman) is the only actor who is less than stellar, but her character is so overwrought with zaniness that the acting matters not. Cliff (John Ratzenberger) created himself into one of the most well-known and well-spoofed of characters in television lore. Is it a coincidence that the demise of our U.S. Postal Service was inversely proportional to the increased popularity of this brainless two legged barstool? Norm (George Wendt)... got himself typecast into such a beloved role for which the actor would never wish to live down. (MARRIED WITH CHILDREN's own Al Bundy cannot compare to the character recognition of Mr. Wendt's "Norm (Norman) Peterson." Woodrow Tiberias Boyd (Ole "Woodhead" Woody Harrelson himself) and Coach (Nick Colasanto) complete the ensemble cast that (along with the leads of Sam Malone (Ted Danson), Diane "Don't you think if I could have sent her to prison I would have" Chambers (Shelley Long) and Rebecca (Backseat Becky/ Beck Beck as played by Kirstey Alley) gave life to a television show rarely matched before or since in comedic genius with heartwarming tenderness.
Just watching George Wendt agrily chasing Cliff Clavin around the bar after having just been released from jail is worth the cost of this set. One needs only to watch a few episodes to recognize the genuine comradery that exists among most of the cast members (including the episode where in several spit balls are seen in Woody Harrelsons hair complements of George Wendts off-camera shenannigans.Read more ›
One must not forget it was "Cheers" that gave birth to the character of Frasier, making this series a prerequisite to truly understanding all facets of "Frasier" and its 11 season run... The added bonus, we get to catch up with our favorite "Cheers" characters as well!
Set observations: My Seasons 1 through 3 DO NOT have the "play all" feature. I'm not sure if this is true for all seasons 1-3. Two of the DVD set sleeves were a bit worn from what I assume was excessive handling over time and the last season's case was cracked in a few places. I again assume rough handling. All discs are perfect. -- However, I can't complain too much since I did snag the set for $80... For that amount of money, it's tolerable, but that's just my opinion.
Enjoy the collection! :)

Mismatched cases. I was expecting a boxed set or at least the same type of cases on each one instead it looks random. I love Cheers though, so it's okay.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
