The first episode of Cheers was a classic and well written start to a television series that to this day is still my favorite. We are introduced to the characters that would enter our homes for years to come in a very straightforward and subtle manner.
The episode does a great job of setting up what would end up being a complicated and entertaining relationship between Sam and Diane. Coach set the groundwork for his character who played his role to a tee. Cliff, Carla and Norm were also a great addition to this strong cast.
The opening sceen and camera work were unique and creative as well.
