Queers

Motto : "Who names a bar 'Cheers' ?!"
"TV executives."

It is my well considered opinion that the pinnacle of refined uncharitable inhumanity is to give a retarded kid a stupid task and then use the luxurious leverage your superior intellect provides to point and laugh at how broken the result is. Let's indulge.

Cheers is an American sitcom television series that ran for 11 seasons from 1982 to 1993. [...] The show is set in a bar named Cheers (named after the popular toast) in Boston, Massachusetts, where a group of locals meet to drink, relax, and socialize.

Myeah ? Myeah...

Sam is also a lothario. Before the series began, he was a baseball relief pitcher for the Boston Red Sox nicknamed "Mayday Malone" until he became an alcoholic, taking a toll on his career. He has on-again, off-again relationships with Diane Chambers, his class opposite

While I'm duly impressed with the editor's flawlessly earnest familiarity with Spanish Castillian literary culture, to the degree obscure characters in obscure framed substories such as El Curioso Impertinente are common nouns to her, nevertheless I can't really buy into that theory. In other words, it's Sir Lothario to you, bitch.

Moving right along, class opposites, hold on to that because it will blossom later.

During their off-relationships, Sam has flings with many not-so-bright "sexy women", yet fails to pursue a meaningful relationship and fails to seduce other women, such as intellectuals. After Diane is written out of the series, he tries to pursue Rebecca Howe, but he either fails to achieve or gets uninterested if passion is attempted. At the end of the series, he is still unmarried and recovering from sexual addiction with a help of Dr. Robert Sutton's (Gilbert Lewis) group meetings, advised by Frasier.

Such as intellectuals, you see. Do you ever wonder what these "intellectuals" would be ? Because I do kind-of have a theory, and it goes like this :

teh-wikipedia-intellectual

Wikipedia intellectuals, id esti people who heard of lothario. You know, lothario, the feminist manga hero. Sort-of like laundry detergent spun off a Christian glam-rock band.

But in the end, isn't this cute, trying to foist long abandoned standards females had to traditionally live up to upon men, as if. If it weren't so painfully transparent I suppose it might count as trolling, but seriously, is this the grand plan of La Resistance, surrepetitiously rewriting retardopedia articles on old shows nobody gives a shit about so as to make them read as if alternate-feminist-reality were a thing ?

Gals, if that's what you've got to contribute, you'd be better off making the world a sandwich.

Shelley Long portrays Diane Chambers, an academic, sophisticated graduate student. In the pilot, Diane is abandoned by her fiancé, leaving her without a job, money, and man.

Awww, why so much self loathing ? Sonette, I r dissapoint.

During their off-relationships times, Diane dates men who fit her upper-class ideals, such as Frasier Crane.

Wat

In the final episode of Kirstie Alley's run as Rebecca, she was wooed away from Cheers by the guy who came to fix one of the beer keg taps – surprising for a "high-class" lady – who happened to be Tom Berenger.

WAT

Social class was a subtext of the show. The "upper class" – represented by characters like Diane Chambers, Frasier Crane, Lilith Sternin and (initially) Rebecca Howe – rubbed shoulders with middle and working-class characters — Sam Malone, Carla Tortelli, Norm Peterson and Cliff Clavin. An extreme example of this was the relationship between Woody Boyd and a millionaire's daughter Kelly Gaines. Many viewers enjoyed Cheers in part because of this focus on character development in addition to plot development.

Holy Muhammad on a stick, grammy! Since when are unemployed, ditzy blonde waitresses "upper class", leaving alone "intellectuals" ?! Since when are bar owners lower class ?! You can't own shit and be low class, that's the fucking definition of class in the first place. It's the poor, bubbly & aerated heads that are lower class for crying out loud. What is this, the Vassar reality show ?

But leaving that aside for a moment, character development ? Seriously ? In Cheers ?!

I have but one mouth and I must laugh more!

    You are completely missing the difference between "social class" and "economic position". They usually overlap, but not always. Social class encompasses not only the economic position but also the social upbringing, behaviors, and outlook.

    High class, for better or worse, is what the rich are and do. On this point there can scarcely be any debate.
