I'm ok with GoT being the GOAT, (I'd probably put it at #3 behind the wire and sopranos), but "peaking right now"? Nah. Season 7 has been the weakest season by a mile imo.

come here and say that to my face.

No Balki Bartokomous? The recurring joke on Perfect Strangers was that Balki was getting mad tail and had hundreds of illegitimate children across the city, many of which played prominent roles in the ominous foreshadowing scenes where they became leaders of the mole people, and eventually ruled the entire country after the Final War of 2025.

I have no idea was OG is talking about, but I loved Balki Bartokomous more than my sisters when I was growing up. I'm on board with him being on every (good) list.

Iíve never watched modern family.

Danny Tanner was an overrated father. Uncle Jesse was the real hero in that house.

i just saw a few ads and wasn't interested. there's so many shows to watch that i just never got into it. seemed a little to much like the big bang theory or some other CBS sitcom show living in the past.

The first few seasons are pretty good. They didn't deal well with the kids growing up. I think I have the last 37 episodes on my DVR.
I'd lend a hand, but it's stuck in the fist and gun position.

The last season and a half have been back to their old form. There was a dry season


It is nothing like Big Bang. Good god, nothing. The writing is super smart and you have to pay attention to get all the jokes.

Just start from the beginning and give it 3 eps. Itís an hour of your life

BBT is a traditional sitcom with an audience/laugh track. Modern Family has immensely more in common with Arrested Development than BBT.*

*I am not making the claim that Modern Family is in the pantheon with AD...but it is a pretty decent show.

I agree with this. The first two seasons were funny, but I stopped watching pretty quickly when Haley went to college.

I also agree with Mex and Colby that it has more in common with smarter shows than BBT.

I have a major bias toward anything with Al Bundy though. And I can't vouch for anything after Haley starts visiting colleges.

I've actually always been annoyed by her very round face. But I get that she's a pretty human.
