Here’s one of my favorite comic episodes of my favorite TV show Cheers. Simon Says (starring John Cleese as a madcap couples therapist paid by Frazier to counsel Sam and Diane). On Youtube they divide the 26 minute episode into three parts of 8 minutes each. Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3

From 3rd Rock, there is another John Cleese cameo in Mary Loves Scoochie. It’s a two part episode (broken down into three parts per episode on Youtube). Here’s Part One and Part Two. I recognize that watching sitcoms on youtube is not ideal, and even Hulu really sucks, but that’s what we have for now. I confess I’m not sure whether I should be sharing these things on my blog (it’s pretty ephemeral), but who cares?
