Not to be outdone I give you the KB top ten:
  1. Seinfeld.. I still laugh out loud at reruns.
  2. Star Trek: The Next Generation.. I know.. I'm a geek.
  3. Happy Days.. classic Americana.. 50s style
  4. The Twilight Zone.. grew up on this one.
  5. The Andy Griffith Show.. heartwarming TV.
  6. Mission: Impossible.. high tech mystery
  7. The Avengers.. aaah.. Mrs. Peel
  8. The X-Files.. I am seeing a sci-fi theme here.
  9. Columbo.. Peter Falk at his best
  10. The Cosby Show.. outstanding family TV
I could have added a few more like The Waltons, Frazier and others.

So fess up.. what are your top ten?


  1. I love Lucy was funny. wonder why the "three stooges" weren't in the list.

    I grew up on "growing pains"

  2. I have to agree with the top ten, but on your list I also loved #3,6 and 9!!

    I don't think any of the sitcoms are as funny today, and in the past..sexual inuindos are really funny, but not what I want my grandchildren watching.

  3. Ditto that for me Wanda.. was real conscious of that when my kids were young and at home.. of course I only watch cartoons (if we do TV) when my grandkids are over.
