Yesss, finally, marry me!!! The stupid husband who's only interested in sports, the bitchy housewife, the overbearing mother(-in-law) and her emotionless husband. I really really really hate that show.

Don't forget the overbearing parents in law.

Seriously, my family has incorporated "jerkstore" into our everyday vocabulary.

They should just call this kind of show a shitcom.

I'd throw King of Queens in that pile too.

Any show with Jerry Stiller avoids this claim, methinks.

Oh man! How did I forget Raymond?! Ray's character drives me up the fucking wall! How can a guy be this thick in the head? And his whiny self loathing brother! Half the time the jokes aren't even that funny. And still I watch the reruns sometimes when I got nothing better to do.

The only reason to ever watch Raymond:



May he rest in peace.

One word - Urkel.

That show, whatever it's called, wins for me.

The intro:

And a segment to show you how truly awful it was; I defy you to get through more than the first minute:

YouTube - Small Wonder

I thought the pilot for "Small Wonder - The Later Years" had promise. What it lacked in editing it made up for with creative energy.

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.
Are you saying that Cavemen could have been the most politically insightful show of our time?

And, on top of that, the humor is blunted and lacking in necessary wit. It just feels very bland.
