Janeway on Cheers

Anyone watch the 3 parter from Cheers called Strange Bedfellows? It seems Kate's character on that show was the template for Janeway. The similarities are pretty striking. She was smart enough to realize that Sam was never going to get over Diane, even though I thought they made a much better couple.

I liked that she gave Diane a run for her money...leave it to our favorite captain to outclass Cheers' most obnoxious character.

I actually saw those episodes years before Voyager, but it wasn't until a Cheers rewatch a couple years ago that I made the "Hey, that's Janeway!" connection.

I think that might have been the closest thing Sam had to a healthy relationship. Not that it was that close, mind you.

She was awesome on Murphy Brown too as a guest star.

I think a lot of Kate just comes out in most of her characters.

Re: Janeway on Cheers

I did not remember her being in Cheers, so I just watched the episodes again. What strikes me is the thing that made her such an amazing Captain -- Mulgrew has a commanding presence no matter what she is doing. She is one of those women that just takes charge of room, and simply by being there people pay attention to her. I'm sure her theatrical training helped to hone those skills, but part of it is an inborn trait that some people are blessed with. It is that part of her that carries over into every character she plays whether tv, film, or stage.

Re: Janeway on Cheers

Yeah after watching like a hundred interviews with Kate, I'm pretty certain that is just her nature.

Re: Janeway on Cheers

When I saw her on Cheers before I ever saw VOY I was quite enamored with her. I thought she was very striking.

heh..

I love Cheers and yes, there are a lot of similarities between that character and Janeway. She does a strong presence very well, and still can appear very feminine which is something not a lot of women can pull off.

Haha I do lurk in other forums sometimes. Also I find Sam attractive, but yeah not the best person to be in a relationship with. She was intimidating for sure, but I couldn't really make up my mind about her character. I liked when she was straightforward rather than manipulative.

No one is as intimidating as Lilith.

Except, maybe, the Borg Queen.

I think Lilith could stare down the Borg Queen til she crumbled.,
