Favorite TV shows

This is just a list of shows that I really liked, not a list of the greatest of all time, so don't be surprised if some of the greats, like Seinfeld are not up here. I like the show a lot, but I would not put it in my top ten.

1.
Married with Children (1986 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous. (22 mins.)
“ This is, by far, my favorite show of all time. For me, the show is not just hysterically witty, but it is also a sentimental favorite of mine. I can remember, as I'm sure many can, watching it way back in the eighties, when I was real little, so I've known this show almost my entire life. I also put it at number one because of its longevity. There really are so many episodes to watch, that it is almost impossible to get tired of. The number of engeniously funny episodes are great as well. What a show! ” - Tom6253
 
2.
The Simpsons (1989 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
The satiric adventures of a working-class family in the misfit city of Springfield. (22 mins.)
“ Another favorite of mine comes from the Fox network. This show has always been number two for me, but in recent years has grown closer to the number one spot. I always, like "Married" have a sentimental spot for this show, but more recently it has become a nightly ritual for me and my wife. We go to bed and watch at least one episode, which has given this show a whole new set of memories associated with it. Even when we stop watching it every night at some point, and regardless of what life brings, I'll always have those memories to share with my lovely wife. ” - Tom6253
 
3.
Saved by the Bell (1989 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
A TV show centered on six students and their years at Bayside High School in Palisades, California. (30 mins.)
“ That's right... I said it! I'm almost 30 and I love this show. Once again, and I'll just stop saying it, but it has great sentiment to me, which will be a common theme in this list. But let's just look at the time and place of the show. The colorful sets, the corney jokes, the hairdos that were only made possible by Aqua Net... No matter what kind of catastrophies go on in today's world, or what the media wants you to be worried sick about, you can always turn this show on and leave the 21st century problems behind! On top of taking us out of time, it also takes many of us who watched it originally back to a simpler time. It really is a nice vacation. The show was corny in all, but maybe with all of negativity from today's tv show, corny is just what we need. That brings me to number 4 on my list... ” - Tom6253
 
4.
Full House (1987 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
After the sudden death of his wife, a young father enlists the help of his brother-in-law and his childhood friend to help him raise his three daughters. (22 mins.)
“ There is no shame in my game. Every now and then, when I need a little pick-me-up, I'll just slide Full House into the ol' DVD player and enjoy. Sure the sentimental moments at the end of the show damn near make me nausious, but the closeness of the characters balances nicely. Watching it is like having a warm bowl of chicken noodle soup. ” - Tom6253
 
5.
The Cosby Show (1984 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
The goings-on in the life of a successful African American family. (30 mins.)
“ Rounding out the top five is the Cosby Show! Hey, this show is amazing. Not only do the actors create a loving family that American's can fall in love with, but it is a genuinely funny show without using adult humor! That is a very hard feat and my hat is off to Bill Cosby and the writers, as well as the rest of the cast! ” - Tom6253
 
6.
Roseanne (1988 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
The story of a working class family struggling with life's essential problems: Marriage, Children, Money and Parents in Law. (22 mins.)
“ Love her, or hate her, Roseanne is perfect as the matriarch of the Connor household, with her wonderfully witty sarcasim. It is also a very relateable show to watch, with very interesting character interactions. It is noticably realistic. Even if it is not always funny, it was, at the very least, interesting to watch. ” - Tom6253
 
7.
The Wonder Years (1988 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
Kevin Arnold recalls growing up during the late 60s and early 70s; the turbulent social times make the transition from child to adult unusually interesting. (22 mins.)
“ I am many years removed from this tv show, but I know if I were to come across the DVD's at some point, this would be one that I would watch a lot. For the short time it was on, it was a very memorable show. The nice thing about this show, unlike typical sitcoms, this one can take you out of the usual settings, giving the show more demensions to Kevin's world, rather than staying on a couple different sets, with an ocasional set rigged to look like a resturaunt, or whatever. This show could take you out to different areas, which helps keep it fresh. It is also a wonderfully told story, of Kevin and is growing pains in the turbulant 60's and early 70's! ” - Tom6253
 
8.
Sanford and Son (1972 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
The misadventures of a cantankerous junk dealer and his frustrated son. (30 mins.)
“ This show is great, if anything, for Red Foxx. His Fred Sanford character is halarious as a cranky, mischievious old man, constantly trying to pull one over on his son, Lamont. ” - Tom6253
 
9.
Cheers (1982 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X
