So, there’s a facebook poll to choose the episodes of Cheers that are the “Fan Favorites”. And fans vote, and the eight top episodes are put onto a DVD called Fan Favorites, out March 6th from Paramount Home Entertainment. Eight episodes of Cheers (well, nine if you count the two-part episode about Woody and Kelly’s wedding). And there is only ONE episode with Rebecca Howe.
I guess fans really liked Shelley Long as Diane, much more than Kirstie Alley as Rebecca. I get that, I much preferred Diane too. What’s funny here though, is that while there is just one episode with Rebecca in it, there are TWO that centre around Frasier’s relationship with Lilith. The one where she and Frasier get together after a TV appearance together, and the one where they move in with each other and invite Sam and Diane over for dinner. Then there’s the pilot episode, the Thanksgiving episode at Carla’s house, the one where Sam fixes Diane up on a date with a murderer, and the one where Harry the con man helps Coach get back some money that was scammed from him.
It’s all great, of course, because Cheers is great. But TWO episodes about Lilith, who was a tertiary character at best, and only one featuring Rebecca, who was on the show for more than half its run? Take that, Kirstie Alley! Facebook doesn’t like YOU at all!
