    How could I have forgotten 'Allo 'Allo!

    It'd be lovely to see Naples in the spring...

    Boy you ol’ farts pretty much covered mine, with the exception of the show that’s consistently made me laugh more and harder than any other in my entire life. The Big Bang Theory...I’m a BA but also a brain. :) watched it from the beginning and have the first 8 seasons on Blu Ray.

    It’s slowed a bit but if you watch the very first one, chances are you’ll keep watching

    Faulty Tower and Police Squad are very good.

    I like Larry Saunders.
    The short lived Sarah Silverman show.
    Northern Exposure
    The very short 4 episode version of Dirk Gently.

    Canadian TV shows.
    Corner Gas, which is on Google Prime these days.
    Puppets Who Kill, which ran longer than the excellent Greg the Bunny.
    Butch Patterson, Private Dick
    Kevin Spencer

    Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park, Bob’s Burgers.

    Some shows I’m interested in.
    Curb Your Enthusiasm

    I forgot about Wilfred.
    The pot smokin dog that runs/ruins his owners life once or twice an episode.

    I occasionally watched Night Court, but I don't remember this episode. Is this for real?(!)

    It gets me every time. If you like "Toast of London," you just might love "Garth Marenghi's Darkplace." All I can find are a few episodes on YouTube. One of these days I'll find someplace that will stream the whole series.

    I loved the BBT for a long time but think they should have hung it up a few seasons ago. Thankfully Jim Parsons put a stop to it now. There was no place left to explore, except Raj coming out of the closet.

    I applaud series that have the good sense to stop when people still want more. Unlikely to happen in a popular US network series unless the lead actor wants out. Even then, usually one more season is tried, to universally disastrous results, ala The Office. Broadcast networks haven't caught up to streaming and cable services that release new episodes according to the creator's timetable, not automatically every fall.

    Yup, I hear that. I've got all this season last recorded season on my cable box and have only got through a few. But I can pop in the discs starting from the beginning and wet myself over and over...Did you catch the goofy movie Bernadette and her husband made with her as a washed up Olympic gymnist? Wowza

    One season only, hysterical, not necessarily for the masses humor, it may well have been a bit to over the top for regular TV.

    Big Bang Theory. If you take the laugh track away, isn't it just being mean about someone with autism?

    The Comet network had been running some, but seems to have stopped. You can still catch the some of the same people on Riff Trax online.

    Circulate the tapes.
