How I Met Your Mother
Scrubs
Friends
The Office

are the ones I've really enjoyed.

Never found Seinfeld that funny, has never made me elicit much more than a chuckle, though I still think it's ok, same with Boston Legal.

30 Rock's ok I guess, on too late here though.

Weird thing about Seinfeld I tried to get into it because my brother tries to make watch it but Im just like -meh-

I HATED Friends! I hate comedy that is SO Predicatable!! I can't stand That 70's show either (for the same reason as Friends)

I HATED Rosanne!


My brothers want to force me to watch Family Guy! I don't like that show- it might get a *snort from me* but I'm a hardcore Simpsons fan

I feel exactly the same way, I'm not a hardcore Simpsons fan though.

You don't like Seinfeld?

You don't have a soul.

Seinfeld
Frasier
Curb

I find most American comedies to be a tad too touchy-feely and/or self-aware, but these three are classics.

Ah, but would you pull the trigger?




It's not like it's essential viewing or anything, very predictable and so on, but it's easy to sit down and watch at 7pm after a looong day at work or uni, not have to think, and get the odd 'ha' out of it

Yeah, fuck that. I don't like being told when to laugh... in any show.

Thank God most of the better comedies now have done away with that trope.

I rest my case.

scrubs? it's alright, but throw in Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm in it's place, and you've got an assload of funny.


also, since we're on the topic....

some of these series should be judged in the time period they were first released in

such as

All in the Family - amazing in its time.

and The Simpsons, the first season or two was amazing, ground breaking there was nothing like them.

Friends was never funny to me. The guys were all gay acting. Well, 18 of the 20 writers were gay so the characters came out that way.

Now, Will and Grace was brilliant. Comfortable about its gayness.

3rd Rock from the Sun, had some great moments, too.

"Computer! Activate now!"

Do you like How I Met Your Mother, lmp?

And uh, what's the premise of Curb, if anyone'll enlighten me. didn't know it was a comedy.
