Classc, high-kicking television: "That '70s Show", "South Park", "Family Guy" and "Malcolm In The Middle". I just realised I watch a lot of Fox. Does that make me sad?

Not as sad as watching a lot of Comedy Central, as in my case ;).

Cursed Americans. You get to wath a show with a new TMBG piece composed for each episode, while I get 'new' DS9 seasons.

The Adventurer
12-06-2001, 03:22 PM
I all ways forget that most of the people in the Adventure Game Community are Europeans. Why is that? Is it becasue us Americans like Fast pased shooters more? I play Day of Defeat and Unreal Turnoment but I'd take Monkey Island any day of the week. I wish more of my friend ageed most of them play RPG and would never touch a real Adventure game. One guy said Reident EVil was an Adventurer Game!:eek:

Any way does any one Watch Reboot? I mean its cool as all hell and its made in Canada! (Canami?) If you get Cartoon Network you should devently watch it!

Marek
12-06-2001, 03:22 PM
Deep Space Nine - Best Trek ever made. Probably the best ever sci-fi series too :p

Seinfeld - even the reruns are funny!!

Coupling - hilarious brittish comedy

JR2000Z
12-06-2001, 03:28 PM
Everybody Loves Raymond, Becker, Howard Stern, Simpsons, Gundam Wing and I watch a lot of news.

Spaff
12-06-2001, 03:51 PM
Coupling - cant say i've ever heard of it marek.. sure you're ok :) :)

my tastes are


Spaced - best god damn pogram ever
Erm any generaly wierd or british comedy i'll watch :) old and new.

Toons
Southpark.. ah yeah
power puff girls.. their cute ok???!!

and buffy :)

Marek
12-06-2001, 03:58 PM
Oooohh yeah I forgot about Spaced! They don't show it anymore on Dutch TV but it was hilarious!!!

Coupling is in the same league as Spaced. How can you not know it, it's a BBC show. Or was it called Coupled? No, I'm pretty sure it's Coupling. It's about a bunch of people, 2 of them are a couple, the others are their friends. The jokes are often about their sex-life and relations, and many episodes end with a mix-up / prank / accident / whatever with their mobile phones.

El Pollo Diablo
12-06-2001, 04:15 PM
Nah... Spaced is well better Couplings as Couplings is full of women trying to make jokes. Plus the Army loving weirdo from Spaced looks like a caretaker at my old school.

Marek
12-06-2001, 04:23 PM
I've only seen 2 or 3 episodes of Spaced. (I remember the pilot, and the one where they go clubbing...)
I've seen more of Coupling, so that's why :)

Isn't there some server where I can download Spaced as DivX?? I don't understand why it's not on Dutch TV anymore :( :(

You know, I never considered this. I always saw it as a cheap and superficial attempt to be Star wars. But "for its time" is appropriate. We had nothing like it in the late 70s. I see the wisdom of appreciating it on that level. It willl never be a favorite, but it DOES have the merit of being the first.

I watch:

Futurama -- it has its moments
The Simpsons -- still the best satire of American values
Malcolm in the Middle -- Always unpredictable
Undeclared -- A strong "up and comer"
South Park -- Charming Political Incorrectness
Enterprise -- Because I am (after all these years) a Trekkie

re-runs:
Babylon 5 -- for the same reasons you mentioned (and better than any Trek series)
Seinfeld -- always examined what TV has ignored i.e. masturbation, body odor, pointless revenge, etc.
Monty Python and Black Adder --my favorite BBC productions
...and almost anything on The Discovery Channel in between these
whew, you'd think I have no life at all

MrManager
12-06-2001, 06:05 PM
Right I should add Seinfeld to my list, seeing that it rocks. Ok. It's added.

Dalixam

"Friends" are my favorite. I even got 72 episodes on DVD and buying more when I can afford it :)

The rest is in no particular order.

Ally McBeal
ER
Seinfeld
Drew Carrey
The Simpsons
X-Files (Until David Duchovny left.)
Frasier
Charmed
The Practice
Family Guy
Will & Grace

I watch a lot of series :)

Why does everyone like Friends? The jokes are lame and the plots keep repeating themselves forever! :( (Like, that whole Ross & Rachel thing...)

GUNNER
12-07-2001, 08:59 AM
Damn, not one person said NYPD blue.

That is a great show, try not to miss it. Tuesdays at 9pm..
Also I like Law & Order(and most of the take offs) and that might be it.

I think most of the new series are stupid or just plain lame, Fraiser is good though.

I also like ESPN sports center. Rich Isen(sp), Kenny Mayne amd Stuart Scott are hillarious.

You can tell I'm over 30 huh? ;)

No one mentioned Ren & Stimpy yet. Sure, it may seem a bit childish now that I'm over 14, but it definitely has its charm.
:ewok: <== Closest thing to Stimpy I could find in the smileys.

Metallus
12-07-2001, 03:38 PM
Ah, Ren and Stimpy. Brings back so many memories.

All-time favorite cartoons that are no longer in existence:

Ren and Stimpy
Rocko's Modern Life
Cartoon Planet (Space Ghost, Zorak, Brak, singing. Nuff said)
Beavis and Butthead
TMNT
X-men

Nostalgia fest at the mojo boards!

Feral
12-07-2001, 03:44 PM
I don't really see the big deal about Seinfeld. I'm sorry, and I'm going to get flamed, but that's just my opinion. Anywho...

Frasier (who doesn't love it?)
Spaced
The Clangers :D
Becker
Corrie

Ah yes...I have all KS films and, of course, Clerks: Animated on DVD...Brilliant stuff. I didn't mention it because it doesn't really play on TV anymore. 6 episodes made and only 2 aired... a travesty.

I'm glad someone mentioned it...that show deserves mention.

12-08-2001, 01:46 AM

Well I feel like I should start posting since everyone went to so much trouble to make these lovely forums :) and this looks like as good a place as any to start. As far as shows that are still producing new episodes go, I watch:

Sunday:

Futurama -- especially the ever-suffering Kif, voiced by Full Throttle vet Maurice LaMarche (sorry, the LEC Actors Archive has totally filled my head with this kind of trivia)

The Simpsons -- Dan Casta-however-you-spell-it has to be the funniest voice actor alive. "Mmmmm... pistol whip..."

Monday-Thursday:

The Daily Show -- Unfortunately, they've gone noticably soft since 9/11, but they're still one of the funniest shows on television. Honestly, satire is the only way to get the news; it's just too brain-numbing otherwise.

Wednesday:

South Park -- O political incorrectness, how do I love thee? "I have... in my back yard... thirty aborted fetuses!" I swear when I heard that last Wednesday, I laughed for 45 seconds straight and almost fell off of the sofa.

Enterprise -- It's looking pretty good so far. The recent episode with the comet was especially well-written.

Whose Line is it Anyway? -- Ryan Stiles points to his ring finger. "Long story short, this is the stone I passed!"

Sorry for bringing this topic up... but here are my favorites (you probably think it's pretty weird, but I like good, old-fashioned television). Alrighty, here goes:

'Allo 'allo
Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot
You rang, mylord?

12-24-2001, 06:27 PM
Simpsons 'n' Futurama, of course... King of the Hill is also very funny.
The Drew Carey show is the best sitcom in production... and both the American and British versions of Whose Line is it Anyway? get more laughs out of me than any other show.
Other sitcoms I like are 3rd Rock from the Sun, Newsradio, and occasionally Seinfeld. And Malcom, of course.
We don't get Cartoon Network in my town, but if we did I would watch Space Ghost regularly.
On Comedy Central I watch the Daily Show and Kids in the Hall (and the british WLiiA, as mentioned.)
Nickelodeon is home to Spongebob Squarepants and Invader Zim, which are both awesome.
That's all I can think of.

Flirbnic
12-24-2001, 10:59 PM
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel...
Whose Line...
Simpsons and Futurama. Haven't seen Futurama in ages though. In fact, I barely watch TV at all.

Eets
12-27-2001, 01:17 PM
Smallville, Roswell, Enterprise, West Wing, Powerpuff Girls, Spongebob Squarepants, Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, and The Fairly OddParents are some of my favorites...
