    ok so I really miss watching Friends. Friends was great.
    What are some new sitcoms that people are watching that are good?
    I feel like since reality tv came about I havent watched any good old fashioned sitcoms, its all either american idol, reality drama like (the hills) or 1hr shows like Greys Anatomy.

    so what are people watching these days?
    has anyone watched the new one with Betty White in it yet? how is that?
    I never liked Seinfeld so dont name things like that - or if you do please put a warning on it.
    oh and I'd also rather something that is actually on tv, i would prefer not to download or stream it. I wanna watch it the way we did in the olden days, the days of whos the boss and growing pains.

    all sitcoms are awful.

    laugh tracks should be abolished.

    How I met your mother
    The big bang theory

    They've both been on for a while now, so I don't know if you'd want to start watching in the middle.

    Everything's on summer hiatus now though.

    I've been digging Louie CK's new show "Louie." He took total control so it's much better than the last one he tried "Lucky Louie." It's kind of autobiographical about a comic living in NYC.

    Nurse Jackie is an HBO show, so if you have Rogers you can watch both seasons on demand. We're waiting for the 3rd season to start in Feb, i believe.

    Here's a description i found online:

    NURSE JACKIE is a half-hour dark comedy that is at turns wicked, heartbreaking and funny. Edie Falco stars as the title character Jackie O'Hurley, a strong-willed and brilliant -- but very flawed -- emergency room nurse in a complicated New York City hospital. A lapsed Catholic with an occasional weakness for Vicodin and Adderall to get her through the days, Jackie keeps the hospital balanced with her own kind of justice. Every day is a high wire act of juggling patients, doctors, fellow nurses and her own indiscretions. The series also stars Eve Best, Peter Facinelli, Merritt Wever, Haaz Slieman and Paul Schulze.

    The character development is OUTSTANDING. Great show.

    there's this new one about a family of sumo wrestlers that catch a local burglar and end up as secret service agents in the u.s midwest. they have a wisecracking pet CIA robot snake that drinks excessively and usually has a key clue that solves their cases in each episode. The really cool part is that their next door neighbour is an out-of-work trapeeze artist named Ravi that sometimes gets kidnapped for ransom but he usually escapes with his skills. he's like a part of the family and wanders in throught the sumo's front door and him and the snake don't get along. so there's always pure jokes.

    never watched any of those by choice, or i should say intentionally, and doing so caused me pain.

    situational comedy as portrayed in 30 mins prime time slots are fucking terrible.

    the laugh track first of makes me grate my teeth and want to punch puppies.
    the jokes are awful, the writing is for people that cant actually get a decent job writing( Larry David is an exception, Seinfeld etc ) and Curb Your Enthusiasm is about 9873495873945739457 times better than Seinfeld ever was.

    as well i think Sitcoms eventually cause cancer and take a level of quality away form your life, you will probably end up dying sooner if you watch them.


    im just looking out for you Mich ;)

    Arrested Development and 30 Rock dont have ' Laugh Tracks ' so they dont fall under my criteria, both are excellent.

    Better off Ted
    Modern Family

    do they have laugh tracks? if so, then they are awful.

    as well ' Bored to Death ' is amazing.
