I don't know if you remember, but I was challenged to watch the first season of Cheers awhile back. I am supposed to complete this challenge by February 2nd, but I have news for you.
I finished it in November! And I'm almost done with season 2 as well, which should give some indication of how I enjoyed the show.
I was extremely skeptical of this dare at first. I'm not a big fan of situational comedy and I'm not familiar with the bar scene, and 80s TV didn't sounds like fun. I do know that this show was revered by many so that gave me some hope. I'm pleased to report that I really enjoyed watching Cheers, I feel like I get a few more cultural jokes as a result of watching it and I laughed out loud a few times!
Now, even though I'm almost finished with the second season, I doubt I'll go on anytime soon. I didn't like the second season nearly as much as the first. I would be up for watching more at some point, but the great sexual tension between Sam and Diane that was played on throughout the first season and provided so much of the humor didn't carry as well into the relationship throughout the second season.
Also, LOST comes back on soon, and I'm starting a round table discussion on The Wire so I think I'm pretty full up on the TV department. Maybe over the summer!
Now that I've completed MY part of the dare, I get to issue one in return! It's pretty easy. Sharon and Rebecca agreed to watch the first season of a TV show of my choice if I completed this. The show I would like you two to watch only knew one shortened season of brilliance. You will be watching Wonderfalls. I know you will fall madly in love with it.
Thanks for introducing me to Cheers!
