    This pilot set the tone for what was to come.

    By geoellis2, Jul 30, 2014

    Unlike most pilot episodes, (especially on sitcoms), they just about got it right the first time. Most of the cast of characters were included, and they didn\'t have to tinker with the personalities much. We already could see the tension between Sam and Diane, and Carla, Norm, and Coach were pretty well-defined from the start. As with any ensemble, there would be changes during the eleven season run, but the feel of the setting and the jokes were in place. We knew that Sumner wouldn\'t come back and we knew that Diane would have some sort of relationship with Sam. Diane already had that stuffy, pompous attitude that would irritate Sam and the others, while providing plenty of fodder for humor. And the bar itself presented its own charm from the beginning. All that remained to be done was write some great storylines.moreless

    Great pilot episode!

    On this pilot episode, Diane Chambers suddenly finds herself dumped by her fiance and taking on a job as a waitress. I really can\'t imagine a better way to start a show that would later become a huge hit. This pilot is extremely well written, acted and produced. It seems as if this is one of the best pilots ever made and -yes- you can spot the potential right from the very beggining (although, this episode was a real disaster in the ratings). Nevertheless, everything needed to make a show a success is here. No wonder NBC picked it up.moreless

    Absolute Classic

    By riggorick51984, Nov 07, 2005

    What an absolute comedy classic. This episode introduces us to the Boston bar Cheers and all the great workers and customers. Cheers has got to be one of the greatest comedies of all time. I've been catching it on and off on TV Land for months but haven't seen the first episode until today. What a great introduction to a great series.
