Creators: James Burrows, Glen Charles, Les Charles

Cast: Ted Danson, Rhea Perlman, John Ratzenberger

Sam Malone (Danson) a recovering alcoholic baseball player has invested in a bar and with the help of diverse members of staff, fill the glasses of the regulars that drop in as they exchange witty comments about drink, work and love, or bitch about drinking politics and love.

It was a big success for this sitcom 11 years running who would go thought. A bunch of regulars coming in and drinking after work to bitch or not to bitch about their day at work for their personal lives.It remains that it was the ongoing on/off relationship between failed baseball star Sam and Diane (Shelley Long) for a while there to keep the season from canceling. But then Shelley Long decided to leave the show. Some of the characters were George Wendt and John Ratzenberger, former professional coach Nicholas Colasanto, waitress Rhea Perlman.Plus the show went to some changes Kirstie Alley who became the owner and Colasanto passed away in real life and the Woody Harrelson character was created). Psychiatrist Kelsey Grammar (and wife Bebe Neuwirth) would also come along early in the series and just add more color, heart and intelligence to a show that had a surplus of all those elements throughout its 11-year-run. Even years later the show still stands out and it is still fun to watch it. I got to own a bar someday.

Season 2 is an all new true crime case of Fargo’s new chapter travels back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota, where a young State Police Officer investigates, a case where a local gang is involved with a crime mob family.

First nice cast in this season and a cool story from back in 1979 yeah the good old days. Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson) who is married to Molly and has a father in law  Ted Dason) as a cop like himself gets involved in a crime where a local gang is involve in a crime mob family, well the mob wants their territory so they make an offer but you guessed it the local gang won’t have it and yes they were right to be suspicious of the deal. Of course you have the 1979 music, the cars, the fashion, even Ronald Reagan (Bruce Campbell), help sell that image.Lou is going through a tough time his wife is fighting cancer. An other story emerges Peggy Blumquist (Kirsten Dunst) a hoarder housewife her spouse, Ed (Jesse Plemons) is not the victim. Peggy is scared of event that she can’t control but does a good job to get out of them with out of scratch. A chain of event will follow and put in motion the story. Pay very attention at the last episode at the beginning it will reveal something interesting. Great second season here , have fun.
