My sense of Lilith was always informed by Frasier more than Cheers until I marathoned all of Cheers last year.

It’s so bizarre to see people’s reactions to Lilith on Frasier, which emphasizes her coldness and connections to evil given her namesake, but on Cheers, it’s a different because while she’s still very straight-laced and tight, that passionate and challenging woman Frasier loved (and still loves, just in a different way now). I mean, Lilith once shoved her whole fist in her mouth in a Cheers cold open, for Pete’s sake, and everyone was pretty impressed with it.

While the show mines Lilith’s frigidity for a lot of great humor, it can sometimes obscure how really lovely Lilith is as a character and a human being.
