Manufactured Content - Favorite TV Series

Comedies:

Yes, Minister.  Relevant 30-plus years on.  Here's a bit about push polling, before they called it by that term:

Early Seinfeld, back when it was a show about how a stand-up comedian gets his material and before it became "a show about nothing".

Non-comedies:

The Prisoner

The Twilight Zone

And, for something completely different, 80s Pyramid.  One of the great game shows ever devised.  Although things could get funny when a clue-giver got desperate:

I guess "24" would be my top show....how about a little movie trivia????

5 points who's the actor with this famous line??????

I know what your thinking,  Did he fire 6 shots or only 5 ???  Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement, I lost track myself.   But being this is a  44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world,  and would blow your head clean off. You've got to ask yourself one question....Do I feel Lucky ???? Well do ya punk?? 

The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Gilligan's Island, Three's Company, Magnum PI, Dallas, Falcon Crest, Laverne and Shirley, Happy Days, The Munsters, Green Acres, Looney Tunes, Foghorn Leghorn, Wile E. Coyote...

Looney Tunes was the best!

Back in the stone age the only time you really got cartoons was on Saturday morning.  I made sure I was up by 730 to I could catch loony tunes.  The other one I made sure I watched was the Pink Panther cartoon but only to see the ant and the ardvark which I thought was hillarious.  Other cartoons were the Flintsones, the Jetsons, Underdog, and especially Rocky and Bulwinkle.

Gilligans Island and Happy Days were two of my go to programs as a kid. 

And yes the answer to the eternal question is that Mary Ann was way hotter than Ginger.

Good lord, way too easy.

That's Stephen Baldwin's iconic character Doyle "Stubs" Johnson from Biodome

I'll watch season 3 of "Stranger Things"  Season 2 was fine, but I don't think they can capture what happened in season 1 again.  

There's something to be said about ending at the right time. And honestly Stranger Things Season 1 was perfect as is.  I like to think I want more and more seasons of Breaking Bad, but knowing when and how to end is something the age of binge viewing, especially on Netflix has to come to grips with. 

The top three:

Andy Griffith Show

Mary Tyler Moore Show

Mash

Other favorite comedies:
