What's the funniest sitcom?
« on: October 27, 2011, 10:05:53 am »
My vote goes to ABC's "Happy Endings". Last night's Halloween episode was hilarious!

I meant currently, but I'll take that answer. Three's Company? Seriously? Jack Tripper always got on my nerves with his broad physical comedy and it seemed like every episode was based on a misunderstanding loaded with double entendres.

...but that was the whole joke behind the show.  Back-in-th'day, it was fun to see the cast do this stunt every single time and differently.
To me, Three's Company was like a 8 season long SNL skit! ;D

Okay, cool. My all time favorite is Sanford and Son. The best ones are when Big Money Grip comes from St. Louis to tell Fred he's Lamont's real father, and Fred and Donna's engagement party when Aunt Esther and her sisters Minnie and Flossie pick a fight with Donna, and when Grady's 'gold brick' cousin Emma comes to visit. She's played by the same actress that played Cliff Huxtable's mom but here she's funny as hell. I gotta mention Lena Horne, 'Wham!" and when Fred got Lamont's money back from Rooster and Hucklebuck too.

Now: Big Bang Theory

Ever:  Cosby? Who's the Boss? Giligan's Island?  Honeymooners?  I Love Lucy?  Too many choices.

O.K.  That episode beats all 8 seasons of Three's Company! ;D

Do you remember the episode where Fred thinks he's an artist because  a curator of a museum lead him to believe that?  So he builds a sculture out of junk from his antique collection...? ;D ;D

Yeah,  Cheers was pretty fun to watch.  Gilligan's Island, Honeymooners (definetly!).  I Love Lucy.  All time greatest.

I never understood why or how this TV show ever became popular. :-\
I just didn't 'get it' at all.

if you watch the show, you wouldn't ask that question.
