TV Nostalgia

A new series, inspired by loyal reader ST. These are the moments of television past that YouTube was designed to bring back to us.

I love The SimpsonsSeinfeld was a cultural phenomenan.  South Park is one of the best pieces of satire ever.  Friends was the recipient of tons of media attention because it had so many young beautiful people.  The Cosby Show was a landmark.

But the most underrated show of the last 25 years is Cheers.  It wasn't underrated when it was on television, but it's slowly been forgotten, even though it was #1 in the ratings for most of the last few years of its 11 season run.  The show deserves credit for going out on top, too.

And it's only appropriate to link to the last 20 minutes of the show's run if we're going to do the nostalgia appropriately.  Cliff's shoes theory still holds water, by the way; plus, I'm pretty sure Woody's City Council election theme was hope and change.  And for the record, I miss the place where everybody knows your name.
