So, I remember a while back Titov posted something about the Oscars, so I figure this is OK. I apologize if it's not.
Anyway, I haven't watched TV in a while (and don't plan to until summer break) but I was wondering what everyone's favorite TV shows are, whether recent, canceled, whatever...
This post was inspired by my seder, in which a guest (whom I didn't know) said that the greatest TV show of all time is The Wire. My brother got the box set (every season) for Chanukah. I decided to start watching it. It's incredible. I can see why it could be considered the greatest.
My favorite shows of all time are:
Arrested Development -- c'mon, how can you not think this is funny?
The Office -- It's probably not the funniest show of all time, and its best days are certainly behind, but it's still a great show in my mind.
Bonanza -- Oh, TV Land...how amazing is that channel? All these old sitcoms and westerns--those were the shows my parents watched.
Full House -- don't laugh. Just don't. I grew up on this show. Sentimentality. That's why I listed it.
The Daily Show -- this show got me interested in politics (real politics, that is)
The Tonight Show -- No, not Jay Leno. Johnny Carson. Jay Leno sucks. Johnny Carson was just...amazing. The best late night talk show host ever. There. I said it.
Those are just a few. So, what are yours? List them and tell us why.
(Again, I apologize if this is not allowed...don't kill me!)
