What are your favorite TV shows?

StrangerInAStrangeLand

Ancient Mariner
Well?

I myself dig the animated comedies. My list is as follows.

South Park
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
Space Ghost Coast to Coast
Robot Chicken
Family Guy (although the new ones ain't so great)
American Dad (not sure yet, the last one was the only really good one)
Home Movies
Futurama
Pre-1998 Simpsons

I simply haven't found anything else to be good...which in itself is probably good.

Ah, of course. This time of year, it's just starting to warm up in Minnesota. You probably just now thawed out. [!--emo&:p--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/tongue.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'tongue.gif\' /][!--endemo--]

As for TV ...
Adult Swim (all except TGTTM)
Simpsons
Nova
Frontline

In other words, I like stuff that's either extremely smart or extremely dumb. Anything that's merely average bores me.

Star Trek (age 7, I wanted to become an astronaut! [!--emo&:p--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/tongue.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'tongue.gif\' /][!--endemo--] )
Baa-Baa Black Sheep (still when I was pretty young; age 14, I wanted to become a fighter pilot [!--emo&:blush:--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/blush.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'blush.gif\' /][!--endemo--] )
V (when I was almost adult, my sister got me into it)
EastEnders (since the beginning, and still watching)
Twin Peaks (any Prisoner fan must also love this series - weird! [!--emo&:blink:--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/blink.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'blink.gif\' /][!--endemo--] )

Extremely smart as in stuff like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, right? [img src=\'http://www.metal-rules.com/bb/images/smiles/headbang.gif\' border=\'0\' alt=\'user posted image\' /]Extremely dumb, to me, means your average sitcom.

I do listen to
The Simpsons
Malcom in the Middle
along with a few local show that you never heard of
Le Coeur a Ses Raisons(translate to something like: the heart has his feelings) it's a soap parody and it's really funny
Infoman, it's a show that makes fun of the news
and finally Chick 'n Swell, it's 3 guys that do little absurd sketches

I'm gonna put "WullfMorgenthaler" here. Brilliant Danish show. No doubt it'll never be translated, but now you now that humour superiour to any you've ever experienced exists. Live with it.

Favorite shows (animated):
Adult Swim
Simpsons pre-1998
South Park
(not animated)
Seinfeld
Everything on the History Channel except for their UFO shows.
(nostalgic shows... not necessarly good ones)
Home Improvement
Step by Step (if you see it in spanish you'd understand [!--emo&:D--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/biggrin.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'biggrin.gif\' /][!--endemo--])
Wings. After this sitcom it is hard to take Thomas Hadden Church Seriously in future ventures.

Also what is TGTTM?

[a href=\'http://www.adultswim.com/shows/tom/index.html\' target=\'_blank\']Tom Goes to the Mayer[/a]. Even the involvement of Tenacious D in episode couldn't save it. When the animation is the funniest part of the show, you know you're doing something wrong.

Seinfeld is one of the only other comedies I'll watch if it happens to be on.
 
Newer South Park episodes(their is actually a decent plot in them now, not as much pointless swearing and random disgusting things)

Monty Python's Flying Circus(I have the box set that cost over 100 dollars)
Bean(gotta love Mr. Bean)
Family Guy(I was watching Family Guy before the big hype when everyone didn't like it. what are they saying now?)
That 70's Show

Believe it or not, I watch Spongebob Squarepants. Many people don't give it a chance because it's a kid's show. It is hilarious, clever, innocent humor [!--emo&:bow:--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/bowdown.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'bowdown.gif\' /][!--endemo--] . It also has crazy Looney Tunes humor (not to mention I still watch) of impossible things only cartoons can do. Which almost all cartoons lack these days. The movie had me laughing my @$$ off. [!--emo&:lol:--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/lol[1].gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'lol[1].gif\' /][!--endemo--]

"Who are you?"
I'm David Hassalhogh
(didn't spell that right). I can take you to Bikini Bottom!"
"Where's your boat?"
"Boat? HAHAHA!"

BEAN! how could I forget! I should add that to the nostalgia list hehe.

Yeah, Tom and his mayor is a crappy show, the ads are funnier, the "music video" thing they do.

The show didn't really get good til season 4. Not there were no good episodes before then, but most of it was your basic, dumb fart jokes.

Oh my god, have any of you guys seen their Team America movie. After the first scene, me and my buds were going to leave... but then the 9/11 joke kept us there. Oh, and the America,F*ck Yeah! song...

"It will be like 9/11 times 10"
"That's like--"
"Yes 9-1-1-0."
