    All in the Family is one of my all time favorites. You might think that it's stuck in its time and place, but it's not. There are still people and families like that, divided but somehow managing. I think a many other old shows mentioned haven't aged as well. I may have enjoyed them at one time but not as much anymore.

    Moonlighting was another great one. Very 80s but if you can look past the silly clothes... I think Bruce Willis should have done more comedy and not just the action stuff he's known for.

    I don't know if you've seen this particular sitcom, and maybe its very British humour doesn't 'travel well', but it's not meant to be taken seriously.

    I believe you, but on this side it sounds like rape culture.

    I guess dysfunctional is still managing. But to me Archie was kinda sad then and sadder now.

    'It's Gary Shandling's Show' with Rip Torn was pretty good.

    Far from it - Richard just makes a fool of himself in that scene. The only violence is between Richie and Eddie - and that's like real-life 'Tom & Jerry'.

    Smut jokes abound, but done very well, imo:

    Okay -- I read it out of context.

    That was a good one, The Larry Sanders show. There was always good behind the scenes humor...

    How can you tell how many there are and how many (or what proportion) would be sufficient? And do they sometimes change while being counted?

    I seem to remember that you’re something of a mathematician. Was there a course in this kind of counting?

    "May a weird mathematician do a number on your sister," said Johnny Carson as Karnak.

    Maybe that's how it happens, for those not born that way.

    I loved Earl. It was all about morality, and doing the right thing. We need more of that.
