The 92-93 season of Cheers, its last, is one of its best. For one thing, at this point everyone's story must be wrapped up, so there is quite a bit of action in the comedy this season. Woody, married at the end of the tenth season, has a few surprises in store, professionally and personally. Frasier conducts an experiment that results in Woody's election to city council. With Woody being the dangerous combination of likable and uninformed, Frasier has nightmares when he begins dwelling on Woody's possible future in politics. Frasier and Lillith break up and then reunite several months later - the reason will surprise you. Rebecca finally meets and marries the man of her dreams at the end of the season. Again, you'll be surprised who she chooses considering her gold-digging past.
The feud between Gary's Old Town Tavern and Cheers erupts once again, and Cheers brings in Harry the Hat (Harry Anderson) to help them out. This is the season after Harry Anderson's long-running series "Night Court" ended. Anderson first appeared on Cheers back in season one before Night Court began, and it is great to have him back one last time.
The final episode brings Diane Chambers back to the scene for the first time since she left for six months to write her book back in 1987. She has an interesting explanation of how six months turned into six years. Will she and Sam finally get back together? Seeing Shelley Long's Diane Chambers back on Cheers reassured me of one thing. Although it was the perfect finish to have her as part of the show's conclusion, her decision to leave after five seasons bought the show several seasons that they would not have had otherwise. Diane Chamber's part in the Cheers saga had been played well but it was played out, and Rebecca Howe and her own unique set of eccentricities made a completely different foil for Sam and the Cheers gang.
The story is ended for all but one - Frasier Crane. His character goes on to star in eleven seasons of "Frasier", and results in Frasier tying Marshall Dillon of "Gunsmoke" as the longest running TV characters of all time - 20 years each.
