You consider anything before 2000 "old"? What the fuck are you, twelve? Sitcoms were better in the '80s and '90s, and nothing beats the primetime dramas of the '80s. TV is beyond shit nowadays with its "reality" shows and sitcoms full of smartass sarcastic characters and unfunny plots.

I have to agree with MASH. I liked the movie but could never get into the series. I also never liked:

Has anyone else experienced the "I don't watch that show but every time I happen to fall into an episode it's the same fucking episode" over and over again?
I've seen the "Seinfeld - sponge-worthy" episode four times. I've seen Seinfeld itself maybe a total of six times.

Some people in this thread don't seem to understand what the word "acclaimed" means.

No one really wants to watch MASH at this late date. It was only a hit because there were not that many television stations at the time.
|by Anonymous||reply 26||10/11/2013|
Family Ties was more popular than acclaimed. Fox was a huge breakout star, and Justine Bateman was a second breakout star, popular enough to be offered her own theatrical vehicle. But the show was just the typical family shitcom with slightly above average writing. I also think Golden Girls was a very high quality conventional sitcom, but too conventional to be truly acclaimed.

[quote]I also think Golden Girls was a very high quality conventional sitcom, but too conventional to be truly acclaimed.
"The Golden Girls" was absolutely acclaimed. I remember critics writing about it and what a smash they thought it was going to be during the summer before it premiered, with one even predicting that Estelle Getty would become "the biggest star on television." (Though it now ranks as one of my favorite TV shows of all time, it actually took a few episodes to grow on me.)
Everyone may not think so now but the show was definitely well-received at the time and won several Emmys during its run, including Best Comedy Series, and is one of the rare series in which every cast member won an Emmy.

True r28, as I said it's definitely high quality, but for the purposes of this thread I think "acclaimed" basically means shows snobs like. And I don't think GG is considered that high brow.

I hate all of the medical shows. Dr. Oz, House, Grey's Anatomy, ER. All of those shows are annoying crap. I also hate shows about Law practices. And while I'm hating I will add Good Morning American, it is so annoying.

I've seen and like: Breaking Bad, American Horror Story, Six Feet Under.
I binge watched Dexter and it was ok, but I didn't personally like it as much as the aforementioned 3. I'm still following Boardwalk Empire but it's getting boring.
I'm interested in trying Mad Men, Game Of Thrones, The Wire. Maybe Sopranos, because I'm sure it's at least an addictive soap. And I do love Goodfellas.
Didn't like Hill Street Blues or West Wing, not interested in Entourage or 24.

I just can't watch anything originating on US broadcast TV (NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX) no matter how acclaimed it is. It all seems watered down to please the advertisers and middle America or neutered somehow. Now, I'm all for cable and premium cable shows but when I hear something is planned for NBC or the others, even if the premise sounds intriguing, I immediately have no interest.

I don't get why everyone acclaims Downton abbey. I watched a couple of episodes in the first series and i was not impressed. I found it rather flat and it did not for me give a real sense of the divide btw upperclass and the servants. Sorry.

Well many of the shows mentioned weren't acclaimed. Friends for example, it might've gotten some critical praise, but surely there were many critics who saw it as just another dumbed-down, lowest common denominator hit. I didn't watch it because I thought the jokes were unfunny and insultingly dumb.

Burt Reynolds won an Emmy for Evening Shade (remember he thanked Loni Anderson's breasts in his acceptance speech?) There was a lot of talk at the time about how he finally got respect as an actor. The show was nominated for quite a few Emmys during its run. I guess that could qualify as acclaimed.
Shows I've never gotten:
Mad Men (talk about a show that has its head up its own ass. BORING.)
Two and a Half Men (Jon Cryer won how many awards for this? Why?)
Entourage (aging frat boy shit. Again, Jeremy Piven won how many Emmys for this? Why?)

I live overseas, so I haven't seen a single episode of Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Modern Family, American Horror Story, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, New Girl, or Homeland. Not really interested in any of them. I did see one episode of Girls (evil shit), Veep (ok, but Thick of It better), 30 Rock (annoying), and Downton Abbey (boring).
