    Battlestar Galactica

    #103 1 year ago

    HBO had one of the best hours of comedy when they aired Dream On and Larry Sanders back-to-back. More recent favorites of mine were Justified and Banshee.

    #104 1 year ago
    Quoted from LTG:

    Alf, Little House on the Prairie, The Waltons, My Mother the Car, I Dream of Genie, McHale's Navy, Gilligan's Island, Hogan's Heroes, Bewitched.
    So many great ones. It's hard to choose.
    LTG : )

    Now I'm imagining ALF in a bikini, on deck a Navy PT boat, sipping a nice coconut drink, all the while wearing a monocle!

    Funny, I just had a coworker mention "My Mother the Car" the other week.

    #105 1 year ago

    'Get a Life' is my favorite because I was dating my now wife and made her watch it with me. I knew she was a keeper. Comedy gold.

    #106 1 year ago

    Breaking Bad. It's the only show I've ever seen that was amazing from the start, got better each season, then stuck the landing 100%.

    #107 1 year ago
    Quoted from Mad_Dog_Coin_Op:

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Joss Whedon’s creation that made tough girls cool. Television really changed after that door was opened.

    Are you *&^%$g kidding?
    Not even in the top 700 - not even close.
    Just, no.

    Agree: Thrones if you can delete season 5 and fix season 8. Great point made above about M*A*S*H too.

    For me...
    NY dock worker, prejudice, ignorant, slow learner..... but still a learner..living, coping, and risking it all to own his own little business in the end (Read: Former American dream) - All in the Family truly changed television, not Buffy.

    Northern Exposure!!!

    GOAT

    #109 1 year ago

    I enjoyed my comedies the most..happy days, 3’s company, Seinfeld and The dukes of hazard..I’ve only watched a few shows on Netflix- boardwalk empire was pretty fn good..I still enjoy the ‘boarder line ‘ humour of family guy..but impossible to name a favourite...

    #110 1 year ago

    My favorite comedy is Arrested Development.

    original.gif
    #111 1 year ago

    There's so many great shows that wear out their welcome or limp on for a few seasons after losing their lead. Seems the average is about 2 seasons too many.

    I've watched seasons 1-5 of The Office more times than I can count but I never need to see the Michael-less last two again.

    I started watching season 5 of Arrested Development on Netflix and got bored after one episode. What a waste. Was once so amazing and hard to believe it was on network TV.

    #112 1 year ago

    All In the Family & The Honeymooners....Nuff Said!

    #113 1 year ago

    1. GoT (seasons 1-4 greatest in TV history period... 5-8 still good enough to maintain the #1 ranking in my book)
    2. Breaking Bad (very close to GoT and really was close to perfect as each season was better than the previous)
    3. The Wire (the most realistic TV show you'll ever see)
    4. The Sopranos (it started it all... took TV to another level IMO)
    5. Band Of Brothers. (10 episodes just wasn't enough!)

    #114 1 year ago

    Outer Limits

    #115 1 year ago

    This is the only correct answer. If you haven’t seen it, YOU’RE WELCOME.

    Obviously you're not a fan. Rolling Stone just did a similar list and rated it at #38 of all time. Buffy is highly under rated and not seen by most markets. It was huge over in the UK and very well respected in the industry. I myself had a tough time getting over the goofy name but it really is very good. Plus it was filmed in my backyard. Sometimes it is good to live in LA.

    The pinball "community" is fucking old.

    Get Smart
    Adam 12

    Just kidding, it’s M*A*S*H

    #119 1 year ago

    Northern Exposure, Twin Peaks

    #121 1 year ago

    Seinfeld gets my vote, but I must acknowledge the best TV adaptation of a comic book hero...

    The Rockford Files.

    Quoted from benheck:

    You made it further than I did. I tried to watch season 4 and just couldn't.

    #124 1 year ago

    The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Done. Lock it.

    #125 1 year ago
    Quoted from Blackbeard:

    No love for Little House on the Prairie?!
    Fantastic.

    That show was very well done.

    #126 1 year ago

    Breaking Bad, Stranger Things, Death Note (Japanese version with subtitles).

    Non-serial...Unsolved Mysteries/Tales From the Crypt.

    #127 1 year ago

    Breaking bad was ok, but survivor is #1 for me

    What is the heck is this suppose to mean?

    #129 1 year ago

    Comedy... Arrested development

    Drama.... The Wire

    #130 1 year ago
    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    A show about nothing!

    I don't think a day does by where I don't quote or think of a situation from the show.
    She's got man hands, he's a bit of a close talker, jerk store, assman, I'm a architect.

    We just got into letterkenny. It's pretty freaking funny and whenever I'm down and need a pick me up Impractical Jokers is my go to.

    #131 1 year ago

    Star Trek DS9, by a million light year at warp 9.9

    #132 1 year ago
    Quoted from yuriijos:

    What is the heck is this suppose to mean?

    Means a bunch of arrows pointing to the quoted post above it “ Northern Exposure” is the GOAT.

    #133 1 year ago

    1-DEXTER
    2-SURVIVOR
    3-THE SIMPSONS
    4-HANNIBAL
    5-BATTLESTAR GALACTICA
    6-SOAP

    sorry i couldn't pick one!

    #134 1 year ago
    Quoted from Leeb18509:

    The West Wing. Really, nobody? Actually it's probably MASH.

    Quoted from herg:

    Season 4 wasn’t that great originally. They (Mitch) re-edited it on Netflix and the re-edited version is now the one you can watch normally. Season 5 was QUITE good

    #136 1 year ago

    I'll vote with my wall decor

    #138 1 year ago

    You guys basically have it covered but man, I really miss Reno 911 and Chappelles Show.

    #139 1 year ago
    Quoted from sataneatscheese:

    Watching Married with Children with the wife now for the first time since I was a little kid. $26 for the entire series on DVD on amazon. totally worth it!

    surprise it hasn't got more love. that show really broke down a lot of walls. couldn't see the simpsons being what it was without it.

    #140 1 year ago

    Saturday Night Live

    #142 1 year ago

    Drama - 24
    Comedy - South Park (surprised nobody else mentioned this one)

    #143 1 year ago

    My three:
    All in the Family
    Banshee
    Game of Thrones

    #144 1 year ago

    Also, not mentioned yet I don’t think.

    Monty Python’s Flying Circus was pretty darn good.

    #145 1 year ago

    Faulty Towers
    Police Squad
    Cobra Kai (1st season)
    Dead Wood
    MXC
    Harvey Birdman Attorney At Law

    #146 1 year ago

    Lost in space
    Three Is company

    #147 1 year ago
    Quoted from DRDAVE:

    FAULTY TOWERS

    And that. (Fawlty Towers) I have watched it sooo many times, just cracks me up every time. It’s like Police Squad that way. Not a lot of episodes, but what is there is so brilliant.

    #148 1 year ago

    4077th fan here followed by The Office.

    #149 1 year ago

    Agreed on $6 Million. Loved that show as a kid. And when $7 Million man entered the picture, boy look out! Trouble a brewin!

    Both Faulty Towers and Police Squad had very few episodes. I guess brevity is indeed the soul of wit. =)
