My Favorite T.V. Sitcoms

1. All in the Family: This show dealt with real time issues that are still being discussed to this day. Some of the subjects that were up for debate and discussion then, are just as relevant today. Some of the subjects deal with things such as: racism, sexism, politics, rape and many other issues but it was hilarious the entire time. Archie Bunker, lived with his wife, daughter and son-in-law, which he called "The Meat Head."

2. Three's Company: One man lives with two girls in a very unlikely scenario. Their lives are full of drama and it usually is made to be somewhat of a major crisis. The entertaining part about the trio is that there's always a misunderstanding with every situation. Laugh after laugh with John Ritter at the helm. This show was silly to be sure but it was always hilarious from start to end. "Come and knock on our door."

3. Two and a Half Men: Charlie Sheen and his wild lifestyle have to make adjustments. His brother Allen has just gotten a divorce and is now going to live with Charlie until "he can get on his feet." As time goes by, Charlie realizes that Judith, (Allen's Ex-Wife), gets a lot from Allen and that he may be staying for a while, a long while. This may be more than Charlie bargained for. Allen is cheap and he comes packaged with a son named Jake. Jake is a fireball.

4. Seinfeld: Jerry Seinfeld and George make a show about nothing. You will laugh out loud to this 90s classic. Jerry stars in the show playing what else? A comedian. His best friend is George and he has a close friend Elaine. Don't forget Kramer! Between there three lives, and Jerry's wacky neighbor Kramer's life, this show about nothing, turns out to be something after all. My favorite episodes are, The Soup Nazi and Yada Yada...

5. Married with...Children: Al Bundy and company are as dysfunctional as a family can be. Bundy lives with his wife, son and daughter and he sale women's shoes for a living. The humor is crude and sometimes sexual. Irregardless the show is humorous from start to finish. The theme music is a cult classic in sitcom lore.Christina Applegate stars as dimwit Kelly Bundy. David Faustino plays Bud Bundy. The high strung mother is played by Peggy Bundy.

6. Sanford and Son: Fred Sanford and his son live together and run a junk yard. Fred always has a get rich quick scheme ready to share with his son, Lamont. Fred always said what was on his mind. This usually leads to trouble for Fred. Fred always said and did outlandish stuff that always ended badly for him. Their home has the junk business attached to it. They live in the Watts section of Los Angeles.

7. Growing Pains: Kirk Cameron plays Mike Seaver as a teenager who is always into some sort of funny mess. He lives with his sister, mom and dad. Most of his drama or craziness in his life is because of a friend named Boner. Leonardo DeCaprio got his start on this show in the final few seasons of Growing Pains. Although it was a comedy, many episodes dealt with real life issues.

8. Saved by the Bell: Zach Morris and the crew act up in school and actually make high school seem exciting. Zach always had a crush on Kelly. There was always a problem with the principal and they were always experiencing deep life changing moments that high school students really do experience. I think that's why this show was show was so extremely popular back in it's prime. We could all relate somehow at some point with the situation.

9. The Brady Bunch: 6 kids, 2 parents and a maid. What could go wrong except for everything? Follow the daily lives of this combined family and see how they learn and adapt to functioning with double the number of people in the family.. I realize that during this time that children were so much more well behaved and I am guessing that this is why the children seem to get along with each other.

10. Good Times: J.J. Walker is Dynamite in this sitcom about growing up poor and still laughing and surviving. J.J. lives with his mom, dad, sister and brother in a small apartment. This show featured the acting debut of Janet Jackson. She was age thirteen. The most dramatic episode is the episode where J.J.'s father passes away. This was a great show and the reruns are just as good as they would, it there's something very on the item.
