If you don't find that funny, you have no soul.

Yes, Dear actually makes me angry when I pass by it. Friends I didn't find that annoying. I thought it was ok, kinda funny at times, but extremely overrated.

Alf was pretty awful. I used to watch Small Wonder as a kid, ugh. And Charles in Charge rocked the house - Buddy Lembeck = Hero - so all ya'll haters need to step off the CiC hating tip.




































*The Eagles.
I love sarcasm and irony. It isn't that I don't get Seinfeld. It is just not funny any way you look at it.

You know what? Everybody is making lists full of shows that all lasted for years(well, most of them anyway). If you made list of the ten most truly awful sitcoms of all-time, it would probably be a list of shows that got cancelled after less than a season, maybe even after just two or three episodes. But nobody remembers many of those, just the ones that last eight years that you don't think should have lasted that long.

The Michael Richards Show
Meego(look it up, it was on CBS for like 5 minutes in 1997, Bronson Pinchot played an alien that lands on Earth and is befriended by a little kid)
Emril
My Big Fat Greek Life
Cavemen
etc etc

That's the kind of material that belongs on these lists.

Special Comment on Cavemen: Whoever the writers for this show were totally missed the point. The Geico Cavemen commercials were laden with social commentary. If used probably, that premise in the form a sitcom could have been a relatively brilliant guise, a medium, for exploring racism and what it really means without resorting to the same old tired stereotypes about this race or that race(because we'd be looking at cavemen and not anyone from any real race) and without really offending anyone, and still be very funny. Unfortunately, the producers/writers of the show either completely missed the point, OR they thought a show like that would go right over the heads of most of America and so they should dumb it down. What we got was a run-of-the-mill, awful, unfunny 'single buddies' show except with Cavemen, that was dead in the water from the minute it started.

Yup. I was thinkin the same thing when this thread was started.

There are COUNTLESS sitcoms that have come and gone over the years that have lasted less than 5 episodes before being canceled. It happens all the time.

Some of those pieces of shit should be counted as some of the "worst sitcoms ever" for sure.

You and these declarations... Obviously quite a lot of people find it funny, so you're wrong. Blunt, but hey, it's the truth.

But you are right that it's not necessarily that you don't get Seinfeld. It's more that Seinfeld's brand of humor is not for you. I can relate - I find some of it amusing but overall I'm not a big fan.

Wow. You need to chill a little Diemen. I was saying any way you look at it whether it be the irony, sarcasm or whatever that it isn't funny to me. I wasn't saying no one found it funny. So again, chill.

I'm like the Larry Mullen Jr. of the forum. I like to get into fights and insult Bono. Did I mention I'm also the enemy of art.
