    Part of that is also that Seinfeld is a product of the 90s mass-communication culture -- where e-mail, the internet, and endless news cycles made bits of the show into pop-culture phenomenons.

    Also, Cheers has been off the air for over almost 14 years -- so there's the recency thing hurting it as well.

    Cheers had more heart. I liked the characters. I never really cared about anyone on Seinfeld.

    That is all.

    Agreed. I'd have hung out with Sam, and the Cheers gang. I found the characters on Seinfeld boring and pretentious. I would not have liked them. Well, I may have liked Neumann... but that is it.

    And as for M.A.S.H... that show will never get old! Never, I say! I can watch the same episodes that I have seen 100 times, and still laugh out loud.

    What????????????? You mean you didn't enjoy the Different Strokes episode where Gordon Jump molests Dudley? Or the Family Ties episode where Alex P. Keaton gets addicted to speed?

    Blasphemy!

    Or better yet, the "Saved by the Bell" episode in which Jesse (Elizabeth Berkley) gets addicted to speed and sings a tearful, manic version of the Pointer Sisters' hit "I'm So Excited."

    I beg your pardon, but in my world it is blasphemous to refer to this landmark episode sans its proper name: A, My Name is Alex.

    Your cooperation is appreciated.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Excellently described, Johnny.

    I tried to like Seinfeld. Really tried. I never cared for it after many, many attempts.

    Just kidding. That was before my time. Saved by the Bell as well.

    The Gordon Jump jumping Dudley and Penny being abused on Good Times was right in my prime (childhood prime, that is), though.

    I liked Seinfeld more than Cheers.

    Cheers is almost painful to watch now it seems so dated.

    Cheers over Seinfeld.

    Ouch.

    Older members of RZ this is what it feels like isn't it.

    When something you saw as a kid, or a pre-teen/high school/collegian is mentioned and some young whipper snapper says it was before his time.

    I have to go home and yell at some damn kids.

    Re: "Cheers" vs. "Seinfeld"

    Seinfeld, without a doubt. I still laugh at episodes I've seen dozens of times.

    Cheers was a fine show, but like others have noted has not aged well at all.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
