What are your favorite tv shows?

Post by Jim B. » Sun Jun 05, 2016 2:43 pm

They can be from the past or currently running.

A few of mine:
Twilight Zone - largely for sentimental reasons cause most of the episodes are not outstanding, but the best episodes were and remain classics.
Andy Griffith - the seasons with Don Knotts and Jim Nabors.
Firing Line with William F. Buckley - disagreed with almost everything he thought but his interviews with the likes of Chomsky, James Baldwin, Muhammad Ali showed me at an ealry age that ideas can be exciting.
SCTV
Kids in the Hall
Monty Python's Flying Circus
Sopranos
Seinfeld - it deconstructed the sitcom format and reconstructed it.
Veep - it's on now on HBO. Caustically cynical and hilarious.
Silicon Valley - the first two seasons were funnier than the 3rd, in my opinion, but it's still a very good show.
Vice - best journalistic show in the history of tv, imo!

Married..With Children was pretty funny. So was Sanford and Son. I also enjoy That 70's Show, and I have watched a lot of re-runs of the O.C. this year.

I will get all artsy and pretentious and say "The Prisoner" and "Twin Peaks"...
The “One” is the space of the “world” of the tick, but also the “pinch” of the lobster, or that rendezvous in person to confirm online pictures (with a new lover or an old God). This is the machinery operative...as “onto-theology."

As mentioned on another thread, my alltime fave, "Dr Who! " :) :ugeek: :ugeek: :ugeek:

... which, yes, kinda combines my Apache-geeky-chic with my six-year-old?
