50 Years of Life, a Retrospective: Part 1
August 13, 2010 /
As I head toward that benchmark, arriving four weeks from yesterday, I’m going to have a little bit of fun making some lists. You may think my lists funny, stupid, ridiculous; I don’t care, it’s my life, hence my lists. Some will be more serious, and others will be very light fare. I commence with two lists of lighter fare:
My Ten Favorite TV Shows of All Time (In No Particular Order)
- Sanford & Son
- China Beach
- Hill Street Blues
- The Office
- The Rockford Files
- Hawaii Five-O
Ten TV Shows of Which I’ve Never Seen an Entire Episode (and in Some Cases, Not Even an Entire Minute)
- American Idol (not counting the first episode of a given season, where the doofuses who can’t sing but think they can make for some genuinely funny television)
- The X-Files
- The Simpsons
- CSI Anywhere
- The West Wing
- Survivor Anywhere
I. Loved. China Beach.
Which probably would be viewed by most as the show that seems out of place on the list, but I really liked it as well. Too short a run for too good a show.
Put Hill Street, Seinfeld, and The Office on the list with the shows that you have never watched and then you have a decent list!
Ha! You mean a decent list of GOOD shows, or that they should never have been watched in the first place? And how ya doin’, Ray???
