The ending of Cheers, the beginning of Frasier

"The 92-93 season of Cheers, its last, is one of its best. For one thing, at this point everyone's story must be wrapped up, so there is quite a bit of action in the comedy this season. Woody, married at the end of the tenth season, has a few surprises in store, professionally and personally. Frasier conducts an experiment that results in Woody's election to city council. With Woody being the dangerous combination of likable and uninformed, Frasier has nightmares when he begins dwelling on Woody's possible future in politics. Frasier and Lillith break up and then reunite several months later - the reason will surprise you. Rebecca finally meets and marries the man of her dreams at the end of the season. Again, you'll be surprised who she chooses considering her gold-digging past.
The feud between Gary's Old Town Tavern and Cheers erupts once again, and Cheers brings in Harry the Hat (Harry Anderson) to help them out. This is the season after Harry Anderson's long-running series "Night Court" ended. Anderson first appeared on Cheers back in season one before Night Court began, and it is great to have him back one last time.
The final episode brings Diane Chambers back to the scene for the first time since she left for six months to write her book back in 1987. She has an interesting explanation of how six months turned into six years. Will she and Sam finally get back together? Seeing Shelley Long's Diane Chambers back on Cheers reassured me of one thing. Although it was the perfect finish to have her as part of the show's conclusion, her decision to leave after five seasons bought the show several seasons that they would not have had otherwise. Diane Chamber's part in the Cheers saga had been played well but it was played out, and Rebecca Howe and her own unique set of eccentricities made a completely different foil for Sam and the Cheers gang.
The story is ended for all but one - Frasier Crane. His character goes on to star in eleven seasons of "Frasier", and results in Frasier tying Marshall Dillon of "Gunsmoke" as the longest running TV characters of all time - 20 years each."
The last super hit show ever

"Cheers has gone down as one of the all time classics, up there with lucy and honeymooners. not many people that i talk to have negative things to say about cheers. True, i think they should have ended the show after the ninth as the story line got old, but i love cheers. it is my favorite and will always be. i already have the first 8 seasons. so now i will get 9-11
all at once in january when the 11th season is released. i hope they do not do any cuts on the very final episode. just a final note. although the series went downhill a bit after the 9th year, they ended the show very well. Sam alone in the bar realizing how happy and lucky he is, despite never getting married. i thing keeping sam unmarried was the smart thing to do. if he was to marry anyone, it should have been Diane and that would have ended the show after 5 years. i liked the final scene where sam saw someone knocking at the door and he raised his hand, saying
"Sorry, we're closed.
Cheers to Cheers. An everlasting classic"
Great (5 star) show though poor quality finale on DVD set

"Though this DVD set does not release until next week, I was able to purchase it from a local store yesterday. I purchased this season set for the final (3-part) episode, which I watched last night. Another reviewer stated that certain scenes in this episode are missing; I can't vouch for that as I do not intimately recall the aired finale nor do I have it on VHS. What I would like to make known is the substandard quality of the final episode itself. Though the majority of the episode is fine (similar in quality to that of the first 5 seasons which I own), several specific scenes look like they were taken from poor quality VHS tapes and spliced into the episode to make it the original length. When the episode shifts to one of these scenes, it is very jarring and watching these scenes is irritating. I cannot believe that a television episode that aired only 15 years ago can look so bad."
Looking forward to the DVD, but be warned...

"I am looking forward to this final season of Cheers, but I read on another site from someone who got the season early, and the series finale is missing certain scenes as well as Rebecca Gaines, Rebecca Loses (which is missing about a minute). The finale was missing about a minute of Alan and Paul commenting on The Ninja Turtles and LL Cool J, as well as Rebecca getting a goodbye kiss from Sam near the end. Just thought I would pass this along."
