(George Wendt) has to deal with marital separation. With pompous postman Cliff Claven (John Ratzenberger) signing on as a full-time cast member, the second series offers fans of the show much more from their favourite characters.
Episode highlights include "They Call Me Mayday," in which talk-show personality Dick Cavett, playing himself, convinces Sam the public would be interested in the former major league pitcher's autobiography - a notion that throws the unpublished, would-be novelist Diane into disbelief. "Where There's a Will," guest-starring George Gaynes as a rich, dying man who leaves the gang $100,000 on a paper napkin will is a superbly funny episode and in "No Help Wanted", Sam's friendship with down-on-his-luck accountant Norm becomes strained when the latter endeavours to undertake the bar's accounts.
The brilliant yet understated humour and warmth of Cheers shines through in the characters and their relationships and is the shows greatest accomplishment. Viewers will wish they had a Cheers’ bar of their own nearby. With fantastic DVD extra features, you can relive the ‘good-old-days’ over again and again.
