I'll still check in on a rare occasion and keep this page up, mainly to make sure users don't lose their favorites, but also as a reminder to what a naive bastard I was way back in the day. ;)
I've had more disc games rendered unplayable than any of my old carts. I kind of long for a return to catridge based games.
I see you like "Frasier" too; another brilliant series which I adore (not quite as much as Cheers, but it's a 9.8 to Cheers' solid 10, so it's all good). And I've noticed you like Seinfeld, which I've only started watching recently. Don't know how I missed that one, but I loved Arrested Development and heard that it owed a lot to Seinfeld.
I only vaguely knew of a show called Frasier before I started watching Cheers, but so vaguely it wasn't until I was watching season six of Cheers that I put two and two together. This was awesome for me, realizing there was another 11 years worth of Crane to experience.
Niles is definitely one of the all-time great characters and he's a huge part of the show for me. The wit and references are endlessly funny and rewarding. I don't think you could make a show like this anymore with the same level of success. I think sitcoms in general aren't as funny these days, but maybe that's just my inner old man talking.
Have you ever watched MASH?
Jane Leeves is sexy as hell and looking through your pictures, it's easy to see why she's so captivating. I really prefer her earlier "bigger" hairstyles though and that's when she's at her cutest. I'm more of a Roz fan personally though, her husky voice is utterly compelling to me and she's quite the looker as well.
MASH is one of the trio of American sitcoms that decisively shaped my sense of humour as I was growing up and I have a huge attachment to it. I'm a writer by trade and a few years ago, I envisaged doing an entire re-write of the series based around the premise that Hawkeye in 1979 has a mysterious accident which transports his consciousness back to the beginning of the Korean conflict in 1950 and he has to relieve his entire war experience over again. Over the course of 260 chapters (or more) it was going to relate how he made significant changes to the canonical story, both for better and for worse.
I'll probably never write it all out now because aside from the opening chapters, all I wrote was a skit about Hawkeye playing Chic 12" singles on the camp turntable and a poor rip-off of the Frasier episode "The Impossible Dream". Maybe one day when I'm rich and unencumbered, I'll actually set it all down...
Good to see you'll check out AD as well, if you loved Seinfeld, you'll appreciate AD a lot. Very rich and multi-faceted comedy.
