It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is what I think the smartest comedy-shows to be on tv in years. Its perverse cruelty, unsympathetic and nihilstic characters are the absolute antithesis to these boring sentimental and corny sitcoms in which everybody always hugs each other in bitter irony at the end. A true sucssessor to Seinfeld.
I discovered this show called "Life" and I really like it. Of course, it's no longer on; I am watching the episodes online at NBC....It's a good edgy detective cop story with some quirky characters and interesting plots and entanglements. I am trying to put together the various clues to why the main character was framed and sent to prison unjustly; each segment ends with him gazing at a wall with photos that make up a diagram of possible connections to the perpetrators in his own case. My friend watched it when it aired and she said it was a good show and we both wondered why they took it off the air. Anybody here see the show before? Just curious.

"Personal note: When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun. So once when I was six, I did. At first the brightness was overwhelming, but I had seen that before. I kept looking, forcing myself not to blink, and then the brightness began to dissolve. My pupils shrunk to pinholes and everything came into focus and for a moment I understood. The doctors didn't know if my eyes would ever heal."

House, M.D. is definitely the best TV show, in my mind.
The Big Bang Theory. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sheldon.
I'm currently obsessed with Doctor Who and Torchwood. Hello Ianto and Captain Jack!

I never get tired of "Seinfeld"!!
And Shalot and Papaya, yes, The Big Bang is brilliant. I'm a newcomer to it, just happened upon it by accident but what a happy accident it was!

feet lovely and still as sleeping doves,

but weighty and unmovable

Yes, I am a 'gleek' and very proud of it....LOL
The Office (US version) is a suprisingly high quality show. Steve Carrol may possibly be the master of comedic delivery in television today because it's not what he says that is funny, but how he says it. His facial expression. Subtle little details. An excellent show.
