So here you go, this is what I wrote so far. Enjoy.]
Like the title says, SITCOMS! I wanted to watch as many sitcoms as I could & criticize or share fond memories about them. Since I'm also busy working on something grand for the site, there's just no time so I'm doing the usual 'read a list online & comment on each and every choice'. I'll be skipping a handful of these entries for the sake of brevity. This might be extended to three or four installments, because I doubt I'll finish the whole list in one blog entry.
Now I've watched my share of sitcoms from childhood till..I don't know, my early teens. Aside from a recent one I saw (Which will hopefully be on this list), I don't watch a lot of new sitcoms. I'll also get to that later on, but for now I came across a list on 'PasteMagazine.com', 100 best Sitcoms of all time! I'm just going to praise, criticize or talk shit about the titles on this list. I didn't vet it so I'm going to feel real sore if one of these titles isn't on this list. So, let us get started!
-#100- Three's Company: 'Sigh', this is one of those shows I saw once, I got an episode on VHS in one of those blank tapes I bought that came with a bunch of TV shows & commercials recorded in the early to mid 80's. All I gotta say is I don't care. It's one of those shows I look at (Like 'The Love Boat') and wonder “Why isn't anyone fucking someone in this & getting a severe STD?” I get the vibe this show wanted to be racier, but couldn't because of the FCC. I'm not a fan, the comedy is 'meh' in my opinion. Next title.
#99- Growing Pains: Fuck Kirk Cameron! Next title.
#98- Peep Show: I've seen a clip of this show & it was the one where that chick is giving the chubby guy some of that KIMOCHI!
If you know what that word means, then we got serious depression. No lie, we need a therapist...and we lack human affection.
#97- Flight of the Concords: This fucking show is gravy! I watched the hell out of this every time in my early teens when I used to get free HBO weekends. What can I say, a lot of the Bob's Burgers folks cut their teeth on this show before hitting it big. Kristen Schaal, Jon H. Benjamin, a lot of familiar faces appear on this show. Love that show!
#96- That 70's Show: This is a show I haven't seen since forever. Going off memory, I have fond memories watching this show at 8pm every monday night on FOX. I watched this a lot with my older sister & loving the show. Nowadays, I can't bring myself to watch the reruns on TV or on Netflix. Don't know why, maybe later. You're going to make me talk about my hate of the whole 'On again/off again relationship' cliché in sitcoms. I felt in this one it worked fine because these characters are teenagers. Teenagers will act like this, emotions can be confusing. When I see adult characters delving into this, even I gotta say “Grow the fuck up!” This show was pretty funny & original because at that point the late 90's network TV landscape was still bombarded with happy, perfect, wonderbread families or dull boring newlyweds or the misstep of molding a standup comedian into a sitcom lead without letting the comedian have creative control on the humor. This show was a bunch of teens being teens. The first episode (From what I could recall) had a bit where Eric sneaks into his parent's adult party to smuggle beer. The show was more of a mirror held up to teens than something like 'Saved By Bell'. It was a unique beast it its time, so much so that I can't recall other networks ripping the show off. We had countless ripoffs of 'Friends' when that hit the air because other networks were so desperate for originality back then. The only 'ripoff' this show created, but aired on the same network, would be 'That 80's Show' which I haven't seen since it aired in 2002 or so. I heard it was a pile of shit. Back to 'That 70's Show', there was a funny but subtle bit on the show where Hyde enters the restaurant & says “Man, it's so dark outside. I think I hit a deer or something. Busted the grill” Then a few minutes later this girl comes in the restaurant they're at, very frightened & cried, “Can anyone drive me home? It's so dark out, I heard a car just hit big Rhonda.”
The series ran for nine seasons & I must say those later seasons (Post Eric leaving for Africa) were crap. For the sole reason they thought to replace Eric with someone with less charisma. New Eric was stupid & they tried to set him up with Donna, who now had blonde hair. Also another problem with the show, in my opinion, was the characters didn't grow, despite the fact that they were out of High School. They weren't teens anymore, yet they still acted like teens. The only two folks I could recall growing (In a way) were Fez & Hyde. Everyone else from that core group was stagnant. Despite Kelso being a deputy, he was still kinda the same. Also the show's humor slowly continued to devolve after the characters graduated High School. The humor became more like a typical sitcom than what it once was in seasons 1 through 4. Sometimes growing up sucks, but I'll admit the only two characters who kept that later season afloat were Kitty & Red. Those two were the perfect couple. Like it or not, I'm sure we all see our parents in Kitty & Red. Conservative as fuck, but when we're out of the house they just give in to temptation. Now that I watch 'RoboCop', I can't unsee Clearance Bodicker as Red Forman.
“I'm gonna stick my foot on RoboCop's ass!”
[Update: I did watch a few reruns of 'That 70's Show'. Egh, not impressed.]
#95- Sister Sister: The intro song should be a meme by now.
Of course my older sister watched Sister Sister as a kid & I watched it as well, but I can't for the life of me tell you specific episodes that stuck out. I rewatched the show recently &......eh. It's pretty bland, but then again I'm not the target demographic. It's a sitcom for kids about two girls who weren't blood related twins, but they looke the same. Try to wrap your head around that. I can't really say any praise for this, because it's your fairly standard sitcom & since they're twins you can already tell there's an episode where they both have to be in two places at once or where they switch roles because their likenesses can take advantage of that. Think 'Dead Ringers' but without any of the weird mutant vaginas. That show ran for five seasons. I do remember the later season dealt with Tia & Tamera going to college.
Anyone check out Tia & Tamera's new rap album? Yes, that happened recently.
#94- Welcome Back, Kotter: “Up your nose with a rubber hose!!”
This show was funny as hecc! Also I feel that in middle school (When I caught this show) I was always stuck in the classes filled with Sweathogs. Because for some reason having a learning disabillity = I'm a bad student. Life, am I right?
So going back to Kotter here, this was around the time John Travolta was coming on up. I think this was also around the time (Or after, not sure) when he did that TV movie where he was a boy in a bubble. I gotta rewatch that one, then he had a meaty role in 1976's 'Carrie' as that one asshole guy who got a hummer from Nancy Allen ('Thumbs up', Nice). Then it wouldn't be until 1977 when he hits it big with 'Saturday Night Fever'. If you watch the episodes post season 3, you'll notice in one episode where Barbarino comes back & the credits say 'Guest Starring John Travolta'. You know you hit it big when you go from a regular to a guest starring credit.
The show takes place in a high school where Kotter, our main protagonist, comes back to teach at his old high school & is tasked to teach the rowdy group of teens called 'The Sweathogs'. It's a traditional thing because every generation has had their sweathogs, so I'm assuming they're like the ghetto 'Little Rascals' or the ghetto 'Buttercream Gang'....Yes that is a real thing. So Kotter starts the series off being ignored & trolled by the sweathogs who are all “We ain't need no learnin!” That is until Kotter tells them that he was a sweathog & that's when he wins over the rowdy group of teens. That was episode one, fairly standard. The whole series delves into not just Kotter's life & problems, but it also then goes into all the other characters like Barbarino & Horshack. I've seen a handful of episodes, so I can't tell you if the series evolves or devolves after a few seasons. I found it funny, so I say check it out.
#93- The Wayans Brothers: Oh good god, no. Well, I should say there were funny moments in this show that made me laugh, usually in what Marlan Wayans does. Also John Witherspoon was the dad, he's always hilarious. My problem with the show was the plots they delved into, they were so trite & one that I call hypocrisy on. There was an episode where Marlan Wayans gets an acting gig on a series of commercials for malt liquor & of course the episode deals with the issue of using stereotypes to market something to a specific demographic. It still happens to this day, but the part that annoys me is you got Shawn & Marlon Wayans giving this message that using stereotypes for profit is wrong....these are the same guys who made 'Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood'. Yeah, all I hear from this is “When you guys do it, it's wrong. When we do it, we're making arte!” Fuck that tripe. Oh, I hope 'Homeboyz in Outer Space' makes it to this list. Doubtful, but I need a reason to watch Homeboys In Outer Space.
#90- The Big Bang Theory: Jeezus, why not just wrap a noose around the neck of comedy & have a fiesta under its body & laugh at it's shrivelled dick & pay some woman to have sex with that post mortem cock? That whole show is a rape of comedy & I'm not exaggerating. Why is this shit called comedy? This is an example of how the humor in this show works.
Nerd Character: Hi, I'm a nerd with the body shape of a 18 year old twink. I'm playing Super Mario 64 on an emulator.
Audience: Hahahahahahahahaah!!!! Clap clap clap clap clap.
Moderately Attractive Blonde: Okay....
Audience: Hahahahahahahaahaha!!!!!! Clap clap clap clap clap.
Nerd Character: Boozanga!
Audience: (Laughter Intensifies. Random dude starts cumming blood)
Indian Nerd: I'm a sterotype token ethnic character. Blah blah blah. Happy Diwali, everyone!
Audience: Hahahahahaah!!! We're laughing because we find joy in laughing at soft coated racism!
I had a friend in High School who, without irony, enjoyed this show.
He's dead to me.
#88- Night Court: I watched the first & second season, maybe even third. After a while the show's half drama, half comedy format died off & just became a striaght up cartoony, goofball comedy. Lotta shit happened behind the scenes that caused this change, the most obvious being the cast changes. The elderly nihilist security lady got recast into this sassy black security woman who was still funny, but I miss the elderly lady. Then we got the change of the woman who played second banana to Harry Anderson, nothing really grand but it threw me off.
So as I said, the show went from comedy with bits of drama & real seriousness to a goofball comedy. We go from an episode of Harry dealing with a kid who ran away from home because he didn't want to be deported to this wacky episode where one of the characters is being chased by a huge 8 ball. It was odd. For some reason people loved those goofier, more cartoonish episodes & I find that weird. Usually when that happens, folks would say the opposite. It's a meaty show, lasted a whole nine seasons, bingeworthy stuff there.
#87- The Last Man On Earth: This would of worked as a Mini-series! I legit felt this show was perfect, until they decided to start another season & once they introduced the other girl to form another love triangle, then that's when I had a feeling that this show was going to stop staying fresh. I'll admit, the inclusion of a love triangle on this show was well done because earlier Will Arnett's chartacter was going to off himself, but as the title suggested he's the last man on earth, doesn't say anything about women so of course there would be other women who survived the end times. He thinks he saw a hot woman come to his aid, but it's Kristen Schaal. Oh I'd be loyal if she came to my aid, cute voices do this to me. But then comes this other woman, thus leads the audience to ask “Are there other women?”
After all that I just gave up watching because the whole show then became love triangle TV with comedy bits. Then for some reason there's another guy in this show & I don't know if they're playing with a trans character (Female to male) character in this world. Don't know, didn't watch that far.
All I can say is watch it, & if you feel tired of the show then just stop.
#86- Girlfriends: Errrrhhhhhh. The crap I would watch as a kid because there was nothing on TV at that moment. Wednesday nights were a death trap for TV viewing, especially when specific channels would cancel scheduled programming for sports or the bullshit of presidential addresses (Bush was president in my time, this was before Obama lies with mic drops). Tuesdays would be alright, mondays were great (That's when new episodes of 'That 70's Show' would air.) & thrusday night would be Smackdown! Firdays would always be a firday night movie on some other channel. Tuesdays, it seemed like Tuesdays were always a crappy time slot for every channel because that's when they air their most bland, mindless & niche programming. Girlfriends.......all I can say is that show was not for me. It didn't make me laugh & the only episode I recall is the frizzly haired woman getting a breast exam & I just remembered that scene as an obvious message hammer. Nothing erotic, just shitty message hammer.
I'm just glad for streaming, so I don't have to resort to watching 'Girlfriends'.
#84- Mork & Mindy: Nannooo nanooo! Gibbidy bloo bloo!
Resign your Robin Williams fan card if you have never seen this show. This is peak Robin playing a space alien learning about humans & life on earth, what's not to love? Also he follows his own weird alien logic of aging backwards. This was pre 'Benjamin Button', folks. It's a charming show, never saw a bad episode from this series, but I forget if this had a series finale or it just ended. Knowing how big Robin Williams got at that time, I'm assuming it just ended abruptly so he could star in movies. 'Club Paradise' is my fucking joint. I also assume that's what happened to 'Welcome Back Kotter'.
Before I end this, did you know this show is a spin-off of 'Happy Days'? Yeah, apparently Mork first appeared in an episode when that show jumped the shark. So it's appropriate to follow Fonzy jumping over a shark with bringing aliens to your 1950's nostalgiagasm sitcom. Woo hoo, segregation was neato! Is that how you feel, boomers?
#83- The Game: Talk about a sitcom that I saw on the (No pun intended) sidelines. Just like 'Girlfriends', this was a show I caught because I had nothing better to do. In fact, I think they both aired on UPN back to back. I didn't find anything funny about this show, but here's where this show becomes an oddity. So it airs on UPN, it's a comedy laugh track, single/two camera sitcom. It moves to the 'CW' after that whole name change debacle & it's still a sitcom. It moves to BET, it becomes this Tyler Perry-esque drama full of infidelity & wine tossing, completely vacant of any kind of humor & full of home wrecking side chicks. This is no longer a sitcom, but then it moves to some other channel (I don't even know) & it's now this multiple camera, comedy show without a laugh track or single camera sets. CONSISTENCY!!!!! Now I'm not talking the same kind of transition that shows like 'Rosanne' or good god, the many times 'All In The Family' goes from humorous to serious & dramatic. This is like if in 'The Simpsons' we go from seasons 2-8 as it is, then in seasons 9-15 the show becomes this dark family drama where Bart is dealing with suicide, Homer is cheating on Marge & Lisa become a the token girl of an Aryan skinhead group. Then after season 15 it becomes this quirky observational humor. Pretty weird, right? That's how this show was & I for the life of me can't see the same audience, that caught this show on season 1, sticking through the BET seasons. What the fuck BET? If I submit a pilot for an animated 'Adventures in Pancakes' series, are you guys going to turn that into a melodrama?
The show is about football players & their families.........Haven't seen that as the premise for a sitcom before.
Well, I talked about the game.....guess I lost.
#82 -The Honeymooners: I have a fondness of this show & it's not because Ralph Cramden uses allegories of space expedition to threaten domestic abuse. It's thee ultimate comfort show for me, sadly the TV station that used to air this hasn't aired it since forever. Nobody shall or will talk about the mid-2000's movie. Nobody! Who was that made for? Cedric the Entertainer as Ralph Cramden, huh? The audience they wanted to target didn't care about this movie & the audience who watched this movie thought it wasn't funny. Next title.
#81- Gilligans Island: Oh my god, this insufferable piece of shit Skipper! That insufferable little bastard keeps screwing up their chances of escaping that island! I know that island is full of fruits & wild boars to sustain their health, but I would suggest killing & eating the skipper for the protein.
I'd like to make a darker, messed up version of 'Gilligans Island' where The Skipper is being abused by The Captain, but when they crash into the island the Captain has a broken leg & The Skipper becomes in charge, so much so he gets drunk with power. He starts murdering people who oppose his rule & becomes a rapist in the island.
That's just my idea....GIMMME MONEY!!!!
#80- Will & Grace: I have a question for the gay community, is this show offensive? (I'm talking the original version. Not the revival that is on the air right now.) I hear half & half, one part of the gay audience loves this show & the other hates it. My older sister has watched the show before & I honestly can't tell you what episodes stuck out or what was funny. The only thing that sticks to my brain is baby voiced Megan Mulally. I know there's a revival that is still on the air & 'Miss Coco Peru' (Funny as hell woman) is on that show. I got nothing about this show, other than this used to air on KTLA 5. next title.
#78- Undeclared: I have not seen this since 2001. I remember bits & parts of the show, one of them being a sign on their dorm bathroom that said “No farting on the toilet.” It's a Judd Appatow comedy show, so it is what it is. A few days ago my younger sister was watching 'I Love You, Man'. That shit was terrible, why was Rashida Jones a bitch? She was so nice when I met her at that parking lot at Ross.
Okay, I lie. I never met Rashida Jones. I'm sorry.
I wish though, she sounds like a nice woman.
#76- Fresh Off The Boat: I shouldn't let trailers judge the show for me, I really should watch an episode. The trailers showed me that all this show has going for it is a fat kid speaking ebonics & an angry tiger mom.
Like I said before, I'll give it a chance. For some reason the show takes place in the 90's. I hope we get to another ABC period piece comedy. If you know what I'm talking about, I'll warn you I don't have a lot of postitives to say about that show. (That, of course, I'm talking about that crap 'The Goldbergs'. Sadly, the wrestler 'Goldberg' isn't in that show. 0 stars!)
#74- Spaced: A Simon Pegg sitcom from the late 90's? I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE! It looks familiar, but I highly doubt this made it to US airwaves. But then again something in my mind tells me this aired on FOX. It looks like a FOX sitcom.
I'll need to check out the episodes.
#72- Diff'rent Strokes: I've seen a handful of episodes & I gotta say I must of hit a jackpot of watching the key episodes that either horrified me or made me laugh uncomfortably at how messed up my predictions were of where the plot was progressing. I'm not talking the episode where the bike owner was a child molester. There was an epsiode where Dana Plato scores a date with this hotshot football kid.....but it turns out he is a RACIST! So how do you combat racism? WITH RACISM!!!! I'm not kidding, the first time watching this I was kinda invested in what was going on, at the same time I was also riffing the episode. I was jokingly thinking “Oh, what's gonna happen? Is Dana Plato going to come down the stairs in black face? I don't see that being a possibil.....” Then we see Dana Plato in black face, walking down the stairs with an afro wig. HOLY 1970's BATMAN, THIS SHIT'S FUCKED UP! I shit you not, I had no idea that was going to happen.
So yea, Diff'rent Strokes. Come in for the Gary Coleman, stay for the blackface Dana Plato. That girl's going places, like 'Night Trap'.........and that's about it. She died in a car crash...........Are you expecting a joke? No, I'm not going to tell a joke about that.........Ok, one Dana Plato car crash joke coming up.
….What do you call a yellow light on Hollywood Blvd? A Dana Pla....[This joke has been censored by the Hollywood Cabal of old Jewy men.]
#71- The IT Crowd: This is one I really need to see. I always laugh out loud at the gifs from this show, specifically the misplaced pepper spray gif. Ohhh, Kathrine Parkinson is in this. I know her as the secretary from 'Doc Martin', I loved that character! She's not bad looking, she's got a 1950's Brit housewife look to her.
This is a show I hear nothing but good things from.
#69- Reno 911: Ohh you kids wouldn't believe how many days I had to spend staying up late at night just to watch this show on the local channel KCAL 9. Sure it was censored since it's an off network syndicated show, but at age 12 it was worth it. My favorite of that cast was (going off memory so I don't know many character names) Thicc blonde woman, Nicey Nash & that suido homoerotic blonde dude with the cowboy boots. This was a straight up parody of 'Cops' & it worked better than expected. From the way it was filmed to the over the top scenarios the characters faced, there was no way this show would be a failure when it hit the air. This show needed a serious comeback, yesterday. It was more than a big hit, spawning a theatrical movie back in 2007 & another show kinda filled that void back in 2011 called 'Death Valley', except these cops chased vampires, zombies & werewolves. Sadly I didn't watch that when it aired, because it was MTV & at that point any edgyness or artistic risk that channel had was completely gone. Despite that, I remember that show being well received by both critics & audiences.
You should check out both 'Reno 911' and 'Death Valley'.
#67- Murphy Brown: To think this show was considered 'Controversial', all because the main character had a baby out of wedlock. Oh no, the horror. I have not seen an episode of this original series, but I do remember hearing there was a reboot that came out last year. Not sure if that was a big hit or not.
#66- The Dick Van Dyke Show: More like 'The Penis Van Wee Wee Show', starring Penis Van Wee Wee!
#63- Blackish: Remember when Anthony Anderson was in the most forgettable movies in the early 2000's? Yeah, this show is like a huge step up for him. I haven't sat down to watch a lot of this, but I've seen bits. It's been on for a while, so it must be good.
#62- Everybody Loves Raymond: No......nobody does.
#61- Red Dwarf: That's a sitcom? I always thought that was a straight up science fiction adventure show. Oh well, I guess I'll have to catch that show along with viewings of 'Cold Lazarus' and 'Lexx'. 90's science fiction, T'was a magical time!
#60- Modern Family: I watched this show first run & it was very funny. Perfectly filmed in that cinema verite style. Gonna sound like an asshole here, but the show was funnier when the children were younger & adorable, it also helped that the Filipina chick on that show was my age (If not a year older than me) so I had that going for it. I think as this show progressed, not only did it suffer from rehashing the same character tropes, but around this time I was kinda sick of seeing nothing but happy upper class families having opportunities handed to them. Every other sitcom coming out from 09 till now (Including 'Blackish') was a high upper class family living in a streamlined sterile home. Sure, we had 'Rosanne' & 'Married With Children' to give us a different take on the sitcom, but even then those two kinda delved into something I like to call 'TV Poor'. I'll get to that when I get to Married With Children or Rosanne, whichever one comes first.
I was watching this & thinking “I thought we progressed passed this. Are we going back to this 50's way of covering up the fact that poor or dysfunctional families exist?” That's what I saw, but back to 'Modern Family'. Once I noticed the pattern at around season 3 or 4, all I saw was the pattern. The blonde mom was always going to insinuate & make assumptions until finally being slapped on the face with reality. Phil was the loveable idiot who devolved every passing episode....that's it. Then there are other characters, Ed O'Neil's character was the cynical realist & that's why I loved that character. Then we get to smokin' hot Sofia Vergara who at the end of the day is just playing a stereotype of the borderline psychopath latina. Then there's the gay couple who in an interesting way you would expect both of the men to be stereotypes. One of them is, but the other is what you would see as a realistic depiction of a gay man. Of course the loud & 'flaming' one has to be the fat one. Aside from what I said, I love when Nathan Lane would guest star on the show. Remember what I said about the show being better when the kids were young & adorable? That all applies to their adopted daughter, surprisingly played by a set of twins. She stopped being funny when she got older, sorry girl.
I might revisit those later episodes now that I'm a bit more calmer & more of an educated critic here.
#57- Laverne & Shirley: Squiggy!!!!! Haloooo.
#56- Bob's Burgers: I'll admit, this past year I haven't been keeping up with the new episodes of Bob's Burgers. I blame work & the fact that I used to have a DVR full of episodes of this current & past season. I haven't had the energy to dedicate time on Sunday nights to watch the show as it airs. I don't want to deal with the commercials, that's the thing that keeps me from watching live television.
This show is an example of it improving just as the seasons progress. First season had its moments, but the problem that season faced was it felt like every episode was going to be Bob trying to do his job while everyone fucks with him for no reason. My least favorite characters of that show are the old folks who run the art & crafts store & the food inspector. My all time favorite episodes I highly enjoy are the ones starring the kids or Linda. I'm not saying Bob should take a back seat on his own show, but I am tired of seeing Bob get the shit end of the stick for just existing.
It's a good show, I highly recommend it.
#54- Faulty Towers: Holy fuck, this is giving me flashbacks to changing the channel to my local PBS channel (KOCE to be specific) to watch an episode of 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' just as this show was about to end. All I remember was John Cleese grabbing some woman's boob instead of a light switch. British humor, SOPHISTICATED AS FUCK!
[Update: I've seen an episode & it's one of the thee most British comedies you will ever see. There's that stereotype of British comedies being too posh & the characters look like they jumped out of a P.G Woodhouse novel. This is it, that's Faulty Towers. Aside from what I said, it's not that complex or hard to understand the humor that takes place in this comedy. I recommend it, thus reminds me I should check out other episodes.]
#53- Boondocks: Best Anime Ever!
I give them props for straight up showing people the bullshit behind defending R.Kelly when all that was making headline news. I remember one later season episode making me feel shitty, it's the one where the grandpa looses his home & now he and the two kids live in a garage. That whole episode was just 'how can we torture these characters more?' I hated it. There was no humor whatsoever. Still, the series is funny. Ummmm, when's that reboot, sequel coming out?
#49- Everybody Hates Chris: Why though? Chris did nothing wrong! Why torture the poor boy? According to Chris Rock (The show's producer & series narrator) everything in that show was based on a true story. Yeeeah, I'm taking that in with a grain of salt. It was funny, it was edgy for what it got away with humor wise, especially with the racial overtones since Chris was the only black kid in an all white school. It's a show where you know after the third or fourth season the show would devolve into a weekly 30 minute session of Chris dealing with a problem & most of the time getting punished for it while the real people responsible for the bad action walk away scott free, like that racist ginger bully. I hated that fucker so much I wanted to shove his head in a toilet seat full of doo doo & piss.
Check out the early seasons, but after that you can tune out if the show starts to get stale.
[And this is where I stopped writing because I felt I was wasting time reading too huge of a list & getting nowhere, despite skipping specific titles from that site. Just to tie up some loose ends here, I mentioned the term 'TV poor'. What I meant from that is it's clear the writers, producers & whatever creative people on these sitcoms that depict poor people never lived below the middle class line. You'd get characters who complain about lack of food & paying bills, but here they are mid series going to Disneyworld, living in two story houses & having access to basic cable!!!! You know I would of given up my left nut for basic cable in the 90's!!!!!! Maybe even a full castration for all the movie channels. There's a ton of other sitcoms I watched back in the day that I still enjoy now, despite the few flaws & how poorly a few have aged. George Lopez is a show I really want to talk about at length, along with Bernie Mac, Malcom In The Middle & this fun yet not as popular 'Grounded For Life'. Maybe some other time, but for now I just wanted to show you guys the kind of thought process that goes into writing such trivial crap. I feel like at this time I do things based on mood, like write or watch movies.
Other times it's just my motivation moves on to other projects & I work on whatever comes to mind at that moment. Unprofessional, I know. The shit writers go through.
So I hope you enjoyed this piece here. I have other unfinished blog entries so I might do this again. Half the stuff is already written, just gotta edit & add in some insight about it.
Stay cool, stay safe & in this time of frustration the last thing anybody should be is an idiot. Take care.]
