Ouch (although the Our Gang serials weren't sitcoms).
WKRP had its moments. The turkey drop episode - in particular, Les announcing as the mayhem ensued - still makes me laugh, more than 40 years later.
The same thing happened to me (minus the dad part, my dad watched it with me).
I went decades with fond memories of the show, then a few years ago TV Land
brought it back in reruns.
I couldnt believe how little I cared for the reruns, but the first season is ok. It was
like they were showing a whole different show than the one I remembered.
What kind of male teacher brings young female students to his house unsupervised?
Kotter did it quite a bit.
Lets the students interrupt whenever they want? Check
But someone said Happy Days was bad- it was, but only from the third season on. That
is when they started filming before a "live studio audience" and all the action took place
in Mr C's living room, which by now was a fake set (boo Garry Marshall).
Those first two seasons were awesome, occasionally someone puts them up on Youtube,
and I try and watch them all before they are pulled.
Soap was the original Arrested Development
The one think I still enjoy is Schoolhouse Rock. I'm just a bill was a favorite of mine.
A number of years ago my wife wanted to show my older son an episode of happy days. He was about 12 at the time, all they talked about was making out and stuff, I didn’t find it that funny at all anymore, but liked it as a kid. I also thought the pacing of the show was pretty slow
My kids also were not impressed with the Brady bunch... oh well
You want funny? The Larry Sanders Show. It makes Seinfeld look as funny as Schindler's List by comparison.
I'd say both are great TV comedies.
i watched the Adam 12 RRs last week., i can say those were very good and the issues relevant to today.
and pretty graphic for the day, seeing hypodermic needles next to a body and an infant in cardiac arrest getting mouth to mouth.
one episode they showed a fax machine. they called it something else with a long technical name but i was wowed by the 1968 technology.
i cant believe i did not remember it from the original show. you think thats something that would stand out in my head.
they used to to transmit finger prints and photos from the criminal data base to the station house. but the return time was sometimes days and weeks not 30 seconds like today lol
My dislike of Seinfeld is personal. I also have no idea why I don't like him, and by extension his show, but I don't.
I agree the show is funny. But I can't get past my "thing".
You just need the celebrate Festivus one year and then you’ll be on board.
I used to love Kotter. I think I even had the lunch box.
"When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years."
Attributed to Mark Twain, but Clement Senior died when Twain was 11....
Don't have a cow, man.
Yeah, but cringe worthy to the nth. Even then. IMO.
I was such a fan that I even made sure to catch this......
Apparently, sh!t shows are still popular. Especially in reruns.
Just out of curiosity, what would you consider as a sitcom that is/was non-cringe worthy?
