My favorite sitcoms of all time are:
Golden Girls -- These four gals has lines that shall endure for 50 years. The pause after the punch-line for us to laugh heartily then resume watching is priceless.
Designing Women -- These four gals are awesome. I loved their punch lines. Julia once spoke something, "In the North, they hide their lunatic siblings, but here, we put them in the front for the world to see."
Married with Children -- Who cannot resist the lovable Bundy family?
The Jeffersons -- Who love Weezie? I do. And their maid. And the obnoxious but lovable Mr. Jefferson!
Anyone care to add?
The current sitcoms that I think has a potential to go 50 years and still be funny:
The Simpsons, Futurama, King of the Hill and Malcolm In The Middle.
One show that seems to be promising: Father of the Pride
One show that will never be a classic: Cosby Show -- it is too cheesy.
One show that could be a classic if not for its last year's edition: Roseanne -- but you must admit that the finale of the show was a stunning one.
What do you think?
