I'm a great fan of truly funny TV shows (early Seinfeld, etc), and I think Dave's World is easily worthy of being in that class. It never failed to make me laugh. The characters were likable, all the actors were first-rate, and there are still lines my husband and I trade back and forth. I'm a writer by profession so perhaps that explains one reason I love it so, but I think anyone who has ever stumbled along while crossing the bridge between youth and middle age will recognize themselves in it.
Every issue brought up on each episode was delved into with great insight and inherent humor. Who couldn't love the Thanksgiving episode with Dave continually on his way to shower and get dressed, and yet we see him at the end of the episode, still in his bathrobe at dinner? As a Christmas baby, I loved Shadoe Stevens' character and his riff on being born on that holiday. Great stuff for real people to identify with.
It's not high, sophisticated comedy, but that's part of its charm.
