I've grown to love the character of Woody Boyd now. I'd go as far to say he is my favorite besides Norm Peterson. Being only 22 I unfortunately missed out on watching it originally. Though I'm enjoying the latest season being shown I really do miss Shelly Long's part even if I've started to warm to Kirstie Alley at last.
People were right, the show is equally good if not better without Coach & Diane. Frasier is an immense character. I've asked for the Frasier boxset for my birthday for after I've finished watching Cheers I won't get to many withdrawal symptoms.
Along with watching Cheers I've been purchasing every Seinfeld season and combining my spare time between the two. Pure genius.
