Killer Casting

Aug 4, 2021

Lisa can’t be the only parent who loves binging through old (or semi old) comedies with their kids, now that you can stream almost anything, anytime, anywhere.

It is always interesting to go back and see if the comedy holds up, or alternatively what is so cringy you have to shut your eyes, ears and hold your nose….as well as tell your kids “now that thing they said, or did, was WRONG. It was wrong then and it is still wrong now”. It can lead to some good conversations.

Anyway, after running through Seinfeld, Friends, Scrubs, The Office, Parks and Rec, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, Odd Couple, Lisa and the boys reached back to fire up Cheers.

There are tons of great casting stories and lore that go along with this era defining show, including who was “almost” cast as “Sam” and “Diane”. Hint: we narrowly missed having Cliff Huxtable own a bar. So join Lisa and Paul as they pour a cold one in honor of place where everybody knows your name.
