My fav TV show of all time, I've watched entirely too much CHEERS episodes to be healthy.
The box graphic is horribly grainy & looks very cheap. You have to wonder how these things get printed.
'Bar Wars III: The Return of Tecumseh' is edited!!!
In this episode the Cheers gang mistakenly prank Gary thinking that he has stolen Tecumseh. When they find out he actually had nothing to do with it they decide to preemptively prank themselves so Gary will leave them alone. In the original episode (which I still have on VHS) Cliff suggests they follow the actions of the American gov't from the movie 'Fail-Safe' where after accidently bombing Moscow they decide to bomb NEW York to avoid retaliation. In the original episode Cliff comments on Moscow & NY getting bombed by saying;
'Ha, not that those pink devils didn't deserve it.'
Ha, not that those rude, loud-mouthed jerks didn't deserve it.'
In a post 9/11 world I guess the powers that be at CBS/Paramount thought that these comments were insensitive . . . what a disappointment!!!
I'm glad I still have the original episode on VHS at least but I don't appreciate paying top-dollar for original episodes only to find they've been edited by PC-minded gutless executives.

I guess after collecting all the Seasons, I've become used to fact that their is no commentary or bonus material but I will give a 3 out of 5 stars for this reason. The show is great, but how can one of the best shows of all time have such horrible releases with no bonus material. Even the Seinfeld DVD's which are okay throw a couple of commentaries and bloopers at us. Cheers doesn't even have bloopers or interviews. For the true fan, shame on you Cheers!! However, after saying all this, I will still continue to buy them as long as the price range remains around $25 because asking any more than $30 would be crazy considering The Simpsons are $45 offering the best bonus material of all tv series released on DVD.

Well it appears to be a done deal. CBS/Paramount confirmed that CHEERS Season 9 will be released on April 29th 2008 with 25 episodes. CBS Paramount announced the big news on [...] More seasons to follow. We can be happy again !!!!!!

HASH(0x9d6d62fc) out of 5 stars There are a total of twenty-six episodes from Season 8. March 16 2006
By JGC - Published on
Format: DVD
"Cheers" was one of those unique shows that both men and women alike could enjoy because everyone could relate to the characters. My favorite character was Carla because she was so obnoxious, and funny. How could anyone watch Carla without laughing?

HASH(0x9cdb2024) out of 5 stars wheres season 9? June 22 2007
By Richard Kaplan - Published on
Format: DVD
"Cheers" is one of the all time great sitcoms. Why the delay for Season 9? Usually Frasier and Cheers are released around the same time. The final season for "Frasier" is already out and Season 10 doesn t seem to be too far behind. Whats going on? I own the first 8 seasons and would really like to complete the collection. Paramount..whats the problem? Please finish releasing all the seasons of "Cheers".

HASH(0x9d8b81b8) out of 5 stars Some Of The Best July 31 2006
By B. Dun - Published on
Format: DVD
The eight season of Cheers offers some of the funniest episodes of the entire series. The overall plotlines running through this season are primarily: 1) the introduction of Robin Colcord and his romance with Rebecca, 2) the birth of the Crane's child, Frederick, 3) the death of Eddie LeBec, and 4) Sam trying to save enough money to buy back the bar.

There are three episodes from this season that are particularly memorable for me. The first is "What is... Cliff Claven" where Cliff makes a hilarious appearance on the gameshow "Jeopardy" with categories like "Mothers & Sons" and "Celibacy." The second is "Two Girls for Every Boyd" which features Woody getting the starring role in a community theater version of "Our Town." This episode features one of the first acting roles of an actress that would be much more famous after co-starring in her own hit NBC show "Friends," Lisa Kudrow, as an actress trying to help Woody get over some acting complications before opening night. The third episode is "Severe Crane Damage" in where Lilith writes a book saying why women fall for bad boys rather than good guys and features Fraiser running around the bar, with scissors in his hand, to prove he is a member of the former group and not the latter.

Overall, this is one of the best seasons of one of the best comedy series ever made. 5 stars!!

HASH(0x9cf09c30) out of 5 stars Greatest Sitcom Ever June 20 2006
By Ronald Chiodini - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Cheers is the greatest sitcom ever. It has provided me many years of laughter. When I was in Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm, I had my wife tape the episodes for me. Between her and the expectations of watching a whole group of Cheers episodes all at once, I made it back from playing war. The quality of the DVD's from season #7 was poor. Season #8 DVD's are top notch. Can anyone tell me why Paramount WILL NOT release the seasons quicker? It is absolutely stupid that we have to wait so long for the seasons to be released. Let's get the final 3 out there damn it.

HASH(0xa1950cfc) out of 5 stars Excellent season of Cheers (but need the rest of them!) Aug. 24 2007
By R. Hamilton - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Cheers, very simply, was one of the greatest situation comedies of all time. And Season 8, first aired in 1989-90, was one of the best. Some of the funniest episodes include the season premiere "The Improbable Dream (Part 1)" as well as "The Stork Brings a Crane," "The Art of the Steal," "Feeble Attraction," "Severe Crane Damage," "50-50 Carla," and the two-part season finale "Cry Hard" and "Cry Harder."

It is my sincere hope that the remaining seasons of this fantastic TV series will be released. I especially want to relive the classic wisecracks between Carla and John Allen Hill (owner of Melville's), which can only be found in the last three seasons. In addition, I want to see Season 10's hilarious two-part finale (Woody and Kelly's wedding day) and of course the extraordinary series finale in which Shelley Long reprises her role of Diane Chambers. If these remaining seasons ever get released, there are sure to be loads and loads of "cheers."
