Massachusetts: Cheers

When it comes to representation on Netflix, Massachusetts had one of the easiest picks of any of the states! While there are certainly plenty of shows set here, Cheers is too much of a standout to ignore.

This classic comedy centers on a Boston bar, the place where “everybody knows your name” (or, at least, so says the famous theme song). Sam Malone, both bartender and one of the owners, usually takes a leading role in the series, which explores his alcoholism and his many flings.

To call this show a hit would be an understatement. Despite a first season that struggled to find its footing, Cheers went on to become one of the most well-known comedies of all time. It is consistently ranked as one of the best television shows of all time and launched the careers of countless stars, to include Ted Danson, Kelsey Grammer and many more. And speaking of Kelsey Grammer, his character, Frasier Crane, was so popular that a hugely successful spin-off series was born.

Fundamentally, Cheers made us fall in love with Boston, Massachusetts. Who wouldn’t want to have a seat at the bar where Sam Malone worked? The series brought a massive new wave of tourism to the state.
