Quote from: Famous Mortimer on November 01, 2023, 06:05:57 PMFamously, the last line of "Cheers" was "sorry, we're closed", so I'm not sure why it was even discussed. Do you hang out with the barflies you were friends with 30 years ago?
Quote from: gilbertharding on November 01, 2023, 05:20:26 PMTo be clear, my assertion that it had closed down was supposed to be about the in universe Cheers bar. The real life bar still seems to be there*, and (apparently) now the interior has a sort of replica of the set.* the website for the bar is still there, but various other sources suggest the pandemic killed it...

Quote from: stonkers on November 01, 2023, 08:15:09 PMSadly Cheers of Greenock also fell to the pandemic.
Quote from: Mobbd on November 01, 2023, 09:24:44 PMAs a kid I found the Cheers theme tune unbearably sad. Like, it would make me want to cry.When the actual show started I'd remember it was a funny one and everything was going to be fine.

Quote from: Gurke and Hare on November 01, 2023, 06:07:07 PMI think if you'd moved back somewhere after 30 years you'd at least look in at your old local wouldn't you?
Quote from: Huxleys Babkins on November 02, 2023, 09:17:54 AMMaybe they could film it in the petrol station Londis? Sam serving customers from behind a sheet of plexiglass, Norm and Cliff supping on machine Costas, Carla moaning because she's got to unclog the F'real machine because Woody keeps trying to make a smoothie/milkshake mix, the ghost of Coach living in a Rollover hotdog. It practically writes itself.
QuoteAll those nights when you've got no lightsThe check is in the mailAnd your little angelHung the cat up by it's tailAnd your third fiance didn't showRoll out of bed, Mr. Coffee's deadThe morning's looking bright (the morning's looking bright)And your shrink ran off to EuropeAnd didn't even writeAnd your husband wants to be a girlBe glad there's one place in the world

Quote from: Gurke and Hare on November 03, 2023, 01:58:34 PMEveryone would think you were Stan Laurel.
Quote from: Rolf Lundgren on November 03, 2023, 10:55:56 PMThe nicest thing I can say about him is that I'm surprised the actor is actually British as his American accent is very good.
Quote from: Rolf Lundgren on November 03, 2023, 10:55:56 PMThe only misstep is Freddy as they've cast an actor with little comic sensibility. I also don't quite buy that Frasier and Lilith's son would grow up to be a firefighting, baseball loving jock but will see if that gets explored further. The nicest thing I can say about him is that I'm surprised the actor is actually British as his American accent is very good.
Quote from: BritishHobo on November 04, 2023, 02:11:45 PMI hoped this characterisation of him meant there would be a lot of scope for stuff with Freddie opening up about how fucking weird and repressive it was growing up with Lilith and Frasier as his parents.
QuoteThe original Frasier was so full-on, immediately, about the lingering trauma and anger everybody held towards each other for their coldness of their relationships. John Mahoney was so good in particular in taking the comedy over the line into a real pain and frustration about this, about the way Frasier and Niles clearly looked down upon him and his interests - and so far it feels like they're not taking the opportunity to lean into that to the same emotional level.
Quote from: mr. logic on November 10, 2023, 10:43:42 PMAll he had to do was not let on at all that he was aware that the first woman preferred him to Freddy, go on the date with the second one, and have that in his pocket if things didn't click. Given that the date meant for him was presented as perfect I'm not really sure what the problem was supposed to be.
Quote from: Famous Mortimer on December 05, 2023, 08:08:55 PMHe gets stung by a bee on his way to the final meeting with the review board, and is remarkably allergic.
Quote from: neveragain on December 05, 2023, 08:16:27 PMWhen was that? I've been getting through the episodes (they're steadily improving but still nowhere near) and have no memory of this.Agree with your observation about the date.
