Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) returns to Cheers with news that Diane (Shelley Long) has left him at the altar and now lives in a convent. Sam (Ted Danson) rehires her as a waitress alongside new bartender Woody Boyd (Harrelson). Sam begins a serious relationship with Janet Eldrige (Kate Mulgrew) and must decide between her and Diane.
Harrelson is a great addition to the tight-knit cast of Cheers. He’s immediately funny and brings the same dim-witted humor that Colasanto provided the show.
The Sam and Diane dynamic gets a little tiresome as if the writers don’t know what to do with them but provides a great cliffhanger finale.
Final say: A good shake up. ★★★★☆
