Finally, a few thoughts on the lighter side.
Most people will call me an old fogey, but the truth remains, I cannot find any modern sitcom shows that match the great writing, acting and humor of by-gone days when many of the shows were performed before a live audience and canned laughter was not always needed to instigate laughter.
I realize Seinfeld, Everyone Loves Raymond and Frasier were all big hits, but I often found myself scratching my head at the sound of uproarious laughter when there was nothing that funny about the dialogue. Rare did those shows trigger a belly laugh to compare to The Honeymooners and All In The Family.
Okay, enough with the rant. Here’s my list of the top ten sitcoms of all time:
All In The Family
I Love Lucy
The Cosby Show
The Golden Girls
Five Honorable mentions:
Dick Van Dyke Show
The Odd Couple
Okay, your choices?
