I’ve been binge-watching a lot of old Cheers episodes lately. In the cold light of 2014, Sam Malone is a predatory monster. No means yes to him. He’s out here peeping at nude women through windows. Or getting them naked through trickery. Laughing about it. Creeping on women while they sleep and shit. Like, I really don’t like that dude and I hate seeing him win. Dollars to donuts, he’s listed on a registry of some kind by now.
Quincy and Sam kinda crawled out of the same archetypal ooze so I guess I know what not to go for.
