    I’ll say it again. Fran Drescher says something very loud, the guy from days of our lives reacts in a very English manner then CC accuses miles of being gay then flirts with him.

    Kids do nothing of consequence.

    And scene.

    The kids are there as plot elements and drivers, torrid as their acting may be. And Niles and CC are t r e a s u r e s.

    Did I mention all the cameos? Coolio, Liz Taylor, Dan Aykroyd, Whoopi, Elton John, some guy whose assistant told Drescher he wanted to be referred to as a "billionaire" rather than a "millionaire" in the script? Ray the Charles!?

    Got through Flashes Before Your Eyes, Stranger in a Strange Land, and Tricia Tanaka is Dead tonight in the Lost rewatch/watch, and that's a stretch of episodes that'll give you whiplash, especially since the one that aired before it was Not in Portland, which also rules. All three of them feel...more self-contained than a lot of other Lost episodes, even though they aren't especially similar in any other way
    Flashes Before Your Eyes is the first really good Desmond episode, and it's got so much fun mind-bending goofy shit in it. I hadn't realized before watching it with people who had never seen it that it can be very easy to miss that Desmond has gone all the way back to the past and not that he's flashed into, like, an alternate dimension, or something, so that slow burn was fun to witness. It also sells Desmond better as a human being than the season two finale flashback did, where it maybe felt like they weren't sure if this was the last time they were going to have him show up, so they gave him this running thing with his Charles Dickens book and had him yell about "honor," or whatever, stuff that just didn't work. Grounding his character motivations in his insecurities with his class status and all of that works so well to humanize him, which is necessary given the heavy sci-fi weirdness going on (and building sci-fi weirdness on top of good character work is Lost's greatest strength).

    And then Stranger In A Strange Land is just...a bad episode. I'd wondered if, looking back, I'd hated it because the Jack's tattoos story was such a clear sign that they were running out of flashback material, and I was just annoyed by it, but the entire episode was just poorly written and full of characters behaving in weird ways that just...never really continues past this episode. It's really bizarre. Sawyer's a huge asshole to Kate, for no reason even this episode can figure out. Jack spends most of the episode randomly yelling, which...I guess that's not really out of character, but he even does it in the flashback and it's just...completely out of nowhere? The Others' sheriff is boringly written and bafflingly performed. And fuck, it'd be one thing if the flashback was just boring and pointless, but it's also vaguely racist and I genuinely have no idea where this happened in Jack's history. Locke's pot commune episode has the same problem, but it at least had a better handle on who Locke is, this flashback could have been about almost any other character on the show other than Jack. It's fucking bad.

    Tricia Tanaka Is Dead is a perfect episode of television. Even outside of the "Hurley finds a van," it works, like...Kate and Sawyer's tiff feels more in line with what we know about them than the last episode. Kate running off on her own makes more sense, her plan to find help makes sense and starts drawing plot threads together...and the rest of it is just extremely fun? And shit, it's a necessary shift for Sawyer, Hurley and Charlie here. All three of them were largely in some pretty grim places, and it's just...especially for Hurley, you need to see him get back to a better, more hopeful place, for a bit. Jin's just along for the ride, but he's great.

    It's also really fucking funny? All of the business with Roger Workman is hysterical, and Hurley and Sawyer is just...it's generally always great to see those two bounce off each other.

    anyways I typed a lot about Lost again because honestly this is maybe the most interesting three episode run in the show, like...there are absolutely better, more impactful runs of episodes, but it's less interesting to be like, "these three episodes were really good." maybe season three is my favorite season of the show, honestly

    God, I forgot about the

    That I guess is fair, but on other hand, a lot on that list often tried to push the genre forward. The nanny was there did it’s thing, told it’s unexciting jokes and did it’s thing. Much like many things in the 90’s it’s problematic, and I’m not going to write it off because of that. But I saw a lot of it going up. And right now, I can’t remember a single joke from the nanny that made me laugh.

    The Nanny was cozier than a pillow fort full of sleepy puppies and it had ten times more charm than other sitcoms at the time, but you wouldn't catch me picking it over 30 Rock, which is one of the few shows that had me laugh out loud.

    i know a lot of old sitcoms are good, i enjoy them, but i feel a lot of them get reverence just for being the classics or whatever so they're "automatically" listed higher than...stuff that was actually better (read: i enjoyed more) but didn't get as many seasons because of the increasing output of entertainment or, you know, systemic racism

    I Love Lucy and Mary Tyler Moore are both legit hilarious and hold up, imo

    But Dick van Dyke? Andy Griffith? Important, sure, and the former was frequently charming. But they don't really bring the laughs.

    Aren’t they even bringing it back now or something?

    They're doing a 10-episode sequel season that takes place so many years after the finale, so it's not going to rewrite the finales like Roseanne or Will & Grace did.

    I'll give it a chance because the showrunner of the first four seasons is heading up this season, and those first four seasons were objectively much better than the schlock we got in the back half of that show.

    The fresh prince should have been a top 5 pick easy. The Simpsons have no had way more bad seasons than good ones, I wouldn't put it at the number one spot.

    "We did not include sitcoms that starred sex pests or actual rapists on the list" is such a low bar to clear.

    I watch a lot of The Decades Channel, which airs really old shows. Some of them are great, but something I love is that they also air, like, bad old sitcoms. Like the Donna Reed Show, which was a "situation comedy" that was 95% "situation" and 5% "comedy"

    "Oh no, my husband's boss is coming to dinner and I forgot to cook!"

    And then she just cooks something, and it goes well, and nary a joke is ever made.

    It's a dull, gormless show, and I love that it has also been preserved. "You can make a dumb thing that sucks and people will still be able to watch it in sixty years" is weirdly affirming, to me.

    It’s a list, so you know, it is obviously wrong but the thing that really struck me, was while I was scrolling through the list, the thing that struck me is I kept seeing sitcom after sitcom and thinking the same thing, that all of these sitcoms should have ended three seasons earlier.

    There were just so many funny shows that hung around too long and left kind of bitter thoughts left with me.

    there was also a fair number of them that were maybe sitcoms, and a bunch that definitely weren't

    Arli$$ is the second-best sitcom to use as a punchline, behind Young Sheldon but ahead of Cavemen

    Arliss Michaels is the super athlete's super-agent, wheeling and dealing in the higher echelons of the sports world - an arena filled with glamour, hypocrisy and money. The sports agent extraordinaire is not above misbehaving as outrageously as his superstar clients in an effort to get what he wants when he wants it. Most episodes include celebrity cameos, usually people well-known in the sports industry.

    Fuck you all for making me learn that this cursed shit exists.

    I was happy before. I was content. I knew peace.

    I may never sleep again, knowing that Arli$$ is out there.

    this was a quality use of my work time

    I'd put Friends way lower and would take The League off entirely, but it is otherwise a hard list to disagree with

    I have the same critique and I might take GLOW off just because it doesn't really read as a sitcom to me, though it's a very good show, in fact one of the best I've watched in the past five years or so

    No Parks & Rec is a little weird

    Where would you (or other hypothetical list makers) put The Simpsons if you only included the good seasons? What >100 number would the bad seasons land on?

    Like I'm going to read something you wrote.

    I think I would include Parks and Rec over B99 or The Good Place myself. B99 because I just generally think it's better, and The Good Place because after the first season it becomes increasingly less of a sitcom (and increasingly less good, if you ask me).

    But Parks and Rec is also a show that I'm pretty content never going back to because I know it has a lot of stuff that I don't like which I still remember, and that means there has gotta be way more where that came from.

    also my case for friends as number two is it basically created the template for like 90% of every good sitcom after it

    it is simply too important not to be top 5
