Storyline

It's the Christmas season. Frasier is in a anti-Christmas bah-humbug mood much to Lilith's chagrin. Norm has a part-time job he fails to mention.

Woody isn't going back to Hanover so he doesn't mind. But Sam hates working what he considers the holiday. When it's close to closing time on Christmas Eve, Carla, Woody and Sam decide to exchange their gifts with each other. That's when Sam learns that everyone seems to have a present for Rebecca - which he doesn't - and in turn Rebecca has a gift for everyone. In a panic, Sam rushes out trying to find somewhere - anywhere - that is still open so he can get a gift for her.

Undemanding Yuletide fare from the Cheers gang.
26 December 2015 | by SpikeopathSee all my reviews

It's funny that there are only two reviews written for this Xmas episode from the much beloved Cheers series, more so given that because both are unflattering reviews many have piled in with ticks of death! What's pertinent about that is the death tickers haven't thrown up there own positive reviews for us to peruse...

This episode is lazy, short on gags and the intended stabs at narrative messaging about the spirit of Xmas also fail to make a telling mark. That it's not a complete disaster is down to the cast and the characters they always bring so vividly to life.

But here's the crux of things, if a none Cheers fan turned on the TV and witnessed this as there first exposure to the show, would they be laughing out loud and be hooked in for ever?...

It's OK to be a Cheersphile (and I count myself very much of that number) and say it as it is when it happens to be a bad episode, and this is. So! Death tickers at the ready, Get Set GO! 5/10
