My All-Time Favourite TV Comedy Series

.

http://ramblerwithoutborders.blogspot.sg/search/label/Film%20Review

I love comedies, and this list contains my faves in the descending order from the most to the least.

About 90% of the series in this list, I had watched almost all episodes. About 5% I had watched at least 30% of the episodes. And only less 5% that I had watched only a few episodes, and decided to stop watching because they turned out to be time wasters.

It's no easy task to rank them. The top 10 are relatively easier, but the rest are hard. This is my best shot FOR ME (as comedy is totally subjective, and are subject to further changes). For examples, classics like Happy Days maybe very funny in its days, but simply not that funny today. We may like it for nostalgic reason - I found it funny once when I grew up with it - but it's just not the same TODAY, TO ME. That's why the list title is All-Time Favourite, not Favourite of the Year or Decade.

Boy! Just realise how much comedy I've watched.

1.
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.)
“ It's a toss-up between The Simpsons and Seinfeld for my most fave comedy series. As I'm a sucker for well-drawn, well-rounded animated characters, it pushes The Simpsons to the numero-uno spot.

Comedy relies on - more than any other genre - originality. Few could retain its freshness beyond 8 seasons. The Simpsons could still pull it off after 15 seasons, but after that the staleness begins to permeate the series except for the new audience. I suspect it's the fresh audience, not the freshness of the show that kept it alive. There's just no TV series - sitcoms or anthing else - that run remotely this long. That's a testimony of its popularity.

This comedy series is so popular that I in my travel I had watched them spoken in Italian, Chinese, French and Japanese. It's really funny to watch my most fave comedy without understand a single word ! (ok I understand some of the foreign languages to various degrees). ” - RamblerWithoutBorders
 
2.
Seinfeld (1989 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.9/10 X  
The continuing misadventures of neurotic New York stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his equally neurotic New York friends. (22 mins.)
“ Seinfeld knew when to exit the stage on a high note after 8 seasons.

Seinfeld is the pioneer of post-modernism in Hollywood. By that, I meant specifically that he created the Seinfeld's cast of characters from real life. There's nothing revolutionary about arts imitate life, but it's the extent he applied this formulae to this sitcom that's novel. The line between Seinfeld the character and Seinfeld the person, including the name, are so blurred that it's almost impossible to draw.

This sitcom was produced at a time when reality TV shows were new to and popular on TV. Perhaps this is the show creator's brilliant satire of that genre. It also parodied it with sketches of recuring theme on how every day trivial matters were being elevated to soap opera proportion as they did so in reality TV shows. It's a mirror reflecting the whole of 1990 decade.

It's like The Simpsons, quite 'cutting edge'. ” - RamblerWithoutBorders

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X

“ Like the extremely successful The Simpsons, it's a social satire about the modern America. Much more than a copycat of The Simpsons, it has a few elements that are totally original. Political incorrectness that are previously taboo on TV, it celebrates it with great relish. Along with this breaking of social acceptabilty is the breaking of type cast of characters: the dog that speaks yet retains many canine characterstics, the baby who is in many way is still a baby but also an evil genius.

It extensive uses of long flash backs is also a original element in the series. ” - RamblerWithoutBorders
 
5.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X

“ This social satire done at a time when the Monty Python gang started to do their magic. John Cleese is 1 of the most well known of the MP gang. This TV series probably has a lots to do with it.

With only 2 seasons, it whets your apetite, and leaves you wanting more. ” - RamblerWithoutBorders
 
6.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X

“ Sitcoms are based on almost exclusively in the domain of real life dramas. And so sci-fi and sitcom don't usually cross path. In Futurama, it does, and with brlliant creative sparks fly. Too bad that's it's a one-of-its-kind endangered species (3rd Rock from the Sun is the other notable of sci-fi comedy. It isn't an animation, however). ” - RamblerWithoutBorders

A skit based show with Benny Hill, often containing smutty humour. (30 mins.)
“ Bennyhill isn't a British comedy show, it's a British insitution. So good that it had been referenced in The Simpsosns a few times.

Strictly not a sitcom, but comedy sketches. If you ever want to know what wacky British humour looks like, perhaps this gives a good frame of reference. The jokes are somewhat broad, and plenty of lowbrow bawdiness. This is the reason for viewing.

"No sex please! We're British!" is the slogan. ” - RamblerWithoutBorders

And with Sillicon Valley - where more geeks live and work than any place on planet earth - being so close to Hollywood. Perhaps it thinks this sitcom only appeal to geeks?

The geeks are getting more air time these days with Ashton Crutcher playing the .dot billionaire in Two and a Half Men.

And while the geeks depicted in this show are minority in the population, but there's geekiness in many of us. Admit it! The symptom manifests - using Geek Speak - itself when you have an unhealthy relationship with your electronic gadgets.
