    I’m happy and surprised at how much Batman TAS is truly loved! For years (before I invested into the internet) I thought everyone forgot it. Now I still get surprised that it’s still loved 30 years later. I don’t think that Batman on TV will ever be that great again. As for one thing that surprises me about the lists I’ve seen, I’m surprised that no one has mentioned any Chuck Lorre sitcoms (Two and a half men, The Big Bang Theory, Mom etc). I’m happy about that because he is kind of a low point for American sitcoms. It’s always the same with Chuck Lorre. It’s going to be hard to rank my top 10 favorite shows, it may be a while for me.
    It’s not just Chuck Lorre sitcoms. It’s sitcoms of today in general that I can’t stand. In fact there hasn’t been a decent sitcom in a long time. I guess you’d have to go back to the 90s and Seinfeld for a decent sitcom. And even that one I always felt was overrated. Greatest sitcom of all time??? I think not!

    I didn’t mind Everybody Loves Raymond and The King of Queens either. But at least those weren’t touted as greatest sitcoms ever.

    Happy Felix Unger Day.



    It's also my late mother's birthday. And since The Odd Couple was one of her all-time TV programs, this is even more appropriate.

    Miss you Mom.

    It's gonna take me some time to gather ten different television shows to list but for now I'll just say that two of my favourite television shows, specifically in terms of writing and acting are Penny Dreadful and The Crown.

    Before we crawl out of a couch, naked, and drink Fight Milk, I just want to say, hello gents! I feel like fans of IASIP are few but loyal to a fault. Also, shut up, bird!

    Always Sunny would be in my top 10 for sure.

    For me, The Wire is tops. Never was there an episode that I felt was a let down. Other series I liked occasionally had weak episodes, felt padded, stale, and ran out of steam. The Wire remained consistent. You hate for a series you like to end, but sometimes it's best to get out before the series plays out.

    After two years, I am down to the last two episodes of GUNSMOKE (out of 635). What a great ride it has been. This consistent quality of writing will be hard to ever match. Maybe three or four episodes that really failed me out of the entire bunch.

    I wouldn't call this a top ten as there's probably so many shows I haven't even thought of but here's a list of things that first come to my mind:

    The Crown
    Penny Dreadful
    It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
    Inside No. 9
    Black Mirror
    Peaky Blinders
    Ted Lasso
    Ghosts
    The Keepers
    The Simpsons


    I'm aware a lot of people haven't seen Penny Dreadful and if you're one of those people. Change that.

    No particular order. I've got pretty crap taste in shows compared to others.

    Entourage
    Stranger Things
    The Office
    Always Sunny in Philadelphia
    The Simpsons (Seasons 1-12)
    Two and a Half Men (pre Ashton Kutcher)
    Jack Ryan
    Ozark
    Only Murders in the Building
    Parks and Recreation

    I grew up with that show and have remained a Zorro fan ever since.

    This one might not be my favourite Zorro version but I’ll always like it for its two hilarious Alcalde’s, that catchy theme song and its big nostalgia factor.

    Btw, did you know a very young Daniel Craig appeared in a two-part episode? :)

    Always Sunny in Philadelphia

    Excellent choice, sir.

    I've been rewatching it in full for the second time (plus I've yet to see the newest season) and it's one of the best comedies out there, probably the best in terms of consistent laughs and quotable lines.

    That show made me not just respect Danny DeVito, but absolutely worship the man.

    Same here. Keeping with the thread topic, I’m glad to see a lot of Batman TAS fans.

    I have seen a few eps of the first season back in the day, but somehow lost track of the series.

    You should definitely jump back into it. Season 2 in particular is my favourite.

    I probably should. I know it's got enough for me to enjoy.

    Momentarily, Stranger Things and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia are my favourite shows, along with Rick And Morty and Bojack Horseman.

    Same here. I saw the first few episodes and then I lost interest.
