    Some of the new and old television shows.

    Friends - The song in it states "Where everyone knows your name"..................... YEAH.. I wonder why? well the stupid show for over 20 years I think it is has taken place in a bar and people watch something that takes place inside a bar for 20 years with the same people, its no wonder why everyone knows your name, you dont leave the ******* bar.

    Roseanne - Just as bad, they all set down in a kitchen and cackle at one another, while we watch John Goodman open a beer every episode.

    Andy Griffith Show - Good show, but for 40 years it gets old with reruns, after 40 years LETS TAKE THIS SHOW OFF THE AIR FOR GOD SAKES, I mean come on, I am tired of watchign Barney Fife screw up and a Sheriff with no gun sit down in building thats not only a jail with the key hanging by it, but acts as a court room to.

    Home Improvement - Whats the point of this show? Its completely stupid, its so stupid I wont even go into details with it.

    Are you smarter then a 5th grader - Ya why not ask questions you dont learn in the 5th grade or below. What continent did Coco beans originate from.............yeah thats something I would of probably learned in 7th grade History not anything below that, maybe 6th grade history. The show should be renamed, "Can you anwser stupid questions a 5th grader knows because we told him"

    Myth Busters - Ok I enjoy watching this show, but lets get real, all of the possible angles is never taken on anything they try to bust or confirm. Benjamin Franklin would of got roasted when he discovered Electricity.......... THEN HOW THE H E double Hockey stick was Electricity discovered? Not only do they use artifical electricity to test this theory, but no one could possibly know what exactly happened with the kite, NO ONE, maybe the lightning never hit the kite to start with.

    Television is a joke.........Really.

    That Gripes my rear.

    That 5th Grader show is really dumb; I'll totally agree with you there. Only about half of the questions on that program are legitimate IMO.

    He probably discovered electricity SOME OTHER WAY. Did you consider that? =/

    I mean, ****, the popular story about Sir Isaac Newton is that an apple fell on his head, which is false. He simply observed an apple falling to the ground and that got the old gears turning.

    He's not talking about Friends. He's talking about Cheers. I didn't like it, but I can see why people did. Interesting, funny show.

    I notice that, out of the things he mentioned, he gives 4 Sitcoms, which are supposed to be stupid, 1 gameshow, which are generally stupid (Deal/NoDeal), and a Reality TV show, which are generally the stupidest shows around.

    Home Improvement was funny. The last 3 seasons were also cute and kinda informative (after JTT left). The basis of a sitcom is the comedy aspects. And Tim Allen was brilliant in that regard. Giving the show a heart in the later seasons was good to see too, but that's not necessary for a good sitcom. Which is why I consider Home Improvement to be the last truly great sitcom. It was FUNNY, and it had a HEART.

    Andy Griffith is a classic TV show. Never take that thing off the air. Ever.

    Mythbusters is wildly entertaining, and mostly informative too. Here's the thing. The setup for these experiments usually takes weeks. We can't see all of the setup and the planning that they put into the show; they give us about 2-3 experiments in a 45 minute episode. If you're looking for the setup and strategy, go to the Discovery website. They've got MUCH more information on the whole basis of the show.

    I love mythbusters! And as Bullados said
    I say they should do the rest like Disney. Release a limited time only D.V.D. set and forget the show completly. You see if they show reruns then the writers have some time to slack off.

    And there was never a new episode of any of your fave TV shows.

    That's why they should cancle long running reruns.
  12. Did you ever consider PEOPLE CAN LIVE THROUGH LIGHTNING STRIKES it has happened you know

    and that could easily be the case as well

    And is that your only argument for myth busters, ONE EPISODE? Maybe get me some more examples that don't have such horrible grounds to base it off and i might agree with you. Besides who cares if its not always "perfect" its still a great show.

    mythbusters is a great show, i just saw a commercial for another show, pretty much a rip off of the MB

    It was called Smash Lab. And it was a bad rip off at that... It wont last 2 months

    Roseanne is classic!

    What gripes MY rear is how MTV is called Music-Television but rarely plays music videos and airs GARBAGE shows like "The Hills", "Rob & Big" etc etc etc... [and when they do play videos it's like at 3 am when us teenagers are sleeping! We have school MTV!]
  18. What about a show where these seven people get lost on an Island and everytime they try to get off Gilligan wrecks the plan. Now that could be a hit.

    It always has comedy though, despite staying in 1 spot for years like Cheers and all, the idea of Gilligans Island is it has a point to it mixed in with alot of comedy and hidden dangers, I guess one could say Andy Griffith Show is like that somewhat, but only in the early years, the gripe I got about Andy Griffith show is its nothing more then a continous rerun for 40 years and I dont think it has ever been off of TV since it was first filmed, we get idea its funny in some episodes, but lets put it down and put something else on it, perhaps the greatest show from that time period "The three stooges".

    Back to back posts merged. The following information has been added:

    Yeah but according to Myth Busters, Franklin would of been fried to a crisp and it didnt happen.
