Day 1— The Riches What a great cast. Unfortunately it only lasted two seasons.

WasCy's avatar

Day 1—Arrested Development. I’m sure I won’t be the only one to list it.

jonsblond's avatar

@WasCy That is always my #1. I thought I would let someone else answer with it. ;)

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 1: Swingtown. The show was soo good.

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 1, Carnivale (loved The Riches too @jonsblond)

jonsblond's avatar

@Bellatrix Then I would like Carnivale. I haven’t seen it. Haven’t met too many that have seen The Riches.

Bellatrix's avatar

It is not like The Riches and very weird. Again though, HBO dropped it after about two seasons. I wouldn’t recommend watching it because like The Riches, you are left wanting some sort of real conclusion.

faye's avatar

I’m already stumped on day 1 but will know one by tomorrow!

jonsblond's avatar

@faye That’s ok. Me and several others went blank on a few of the questions in the past. Thanks for playing along!

Vunessuh's avatar

1) Extreme Makeover. Not the home edition.

AmWiser's avatar

Day 1: The Whole Truth.
I like medical dramas and I like Rob Morrow and Maura Tierney.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 1 – The original NYC Law & Order.

Not only was it the “mac & cheese” of American TV, but I could watch Sam Waterston get his dander up for days. He was so awesome.

WasCy's avatar

Day 1 (again)

Northern Exposure. I’m of two minds about this: I only occasionally watched the show when it was on in original runs, but it was always delightfully entertaining. On the other hand, if it hadn’t ended, then Iris DeMent may not have had the reason to create the bittersweetly beautiful Our Town, that closed out the show.

poisonedantidote's avatar

Day 1 – Family Guy

ucme's avatar

1: Starsky & Hutch. I loved that shit!

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 1 – Firefly. I’m still upset!

Blueroses's avatar

Day 1 – Dead Like Me

yankeetooter's avatar

Day 1-Star Trek: The Next Generation

Jude's avatar

Day 1. Carnivale

faye's avatar

Day 1— I’m going to also say Firefly. I never got a chance to watch it!

linguaphile's avatar

Day1 Numb3rs

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 2 – I am going to go with Spirited with Claudia Karvan and Matt King. It is on cable so I don’t think everyone would have seen this sweet and funny Australian TV show.

yankeetooter's avatar

Day 2-Bob’s Burgers

Vunessuh's avatar

2) Oliver Beene. I wish more people watched it so it wasn’t canceled. It was pretty funny.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 2; V. I know it wasn’t that good, but I love that they did it, and I wish it had been renewed.

yankeetooter's avatar

This clip is hilarious @ucme…I’m going to have to watch more of them when I have the time…

ucme's avatar

@yankeetooter It is a very funny show.

poisonedantidote's avatar

Day 2 – Red Dwarf

linguaphile's avatar

Day 2— Law and Order BBC (Brit version!)

Jude's avatar

Day 2 – Dexter

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 2 – I can’t answer this. I only watch three shows: Mad Men, The Borgias and Game of Thrones. Many people watch those shows.

jonsblond's avatar

Day 2— This one is hard for me to answer too. At the moment I mostly watch cooking shows like Chopped and Top Chef. I’d say Eastbound & Down, but I’m pretty sure it has a good following at the moment.

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 2: The Event (Please don’t get cancelled.)

AmWiser's avatar

Day 2 – The Voice (way better than American Idol).

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 3 – Hawaii 5 0. Mostly because it was nice to watch warm stuff during our hellacious winter.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 3 – The Borgias.

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 3 – We get things later than the US and UK I suspect. I really want to see The Borgias, but in the mean time Boardwalk Empire is good.

yankeetooter's avatar

Day 3-Game of Thrones

Jude's avatar

Day 3 – Storage Wars

ucme's avatar

3: Boardwalk Empire at least it’s new to these (UK) shores.

Vunessuh's avatar

3) The Voice.

AmWiser's avatar

Day 3: The Voice (way better than American Idol).

jonsblond's avatar

Day 3— The Walking Dead (I haven’t watched any new shows starting in 2011)

Blueroses's avatar

Day 3 – I liked Work of Art, a competitive artist show on Bravo network.

poisonedantidote's avatar

Day 3 – The big bang theory (I know we are in season 3 or 4 now, but im in spain, whats new to you wont be here for another 3 months)

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 3: Loved The Walking Dead and I really enjoy The Voice. If it makes it to another season I might audition, since age doesn’t matter.

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

Day 3: Disconnect cable altogether and turn the TV (time vixen) OFF! I have no idea what “new shows” there are. And i could care less.

but i’m not suggesting this for others. prime time just ain’t for me.

linguaphile's avatar

Day 3— It’s an old show… but, new again! Vincent D’Onofrio returning to L and O, Criminial Intent

lonelydragon's avatar

Day 3—technically an old show, but it’s been renewed-Futurama.

faye's avatar

@JilltheTooth Say it ain’t so! About V.

_zen_'s avatar

Hello. My name is Zen. I’m a TV addict.

Day 01: Get Smart.

yankeetooter's avatar

love Get Smart!

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 4— Damn, this is a toughie. OK, I’ll have to go with WKRP because I laughed every single time, and later just thinking about it!

I thought about Star Trek, because I am that geeky and it became such a phenomenon.

Vunessuh's avatar

4) Desperate Housewives & Intervention.

ucme's avatar

4: Fawlty Towers aka : Flowery Twats.

Bellatrix's avatar

4. Just one? I am going to go with Mad Men because it is my favourite at the moment. I really love a couple of other series though.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 4 – Monty Python’s Flying Circus. I’ve been a fan of those boys since I was 6 or 7.

AmWiser's avatar

Day 4: Cheers
Where everybody knows your name.

linguaphile's avatar

Day 4… that’s a toughie. First one that came to mind was Batman, with Adam West and Burt Ward. I sat 10 inches from the TV waiting for every POW! and WHAM! It was one of the few TV shows I could understand in those pre-closed captioning days.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 4 – mark it on the calendar, I’m agreeing with @ucme! ;)

Fawlty Towers is the best, most perfect series that ever aired.

jonsblond's avatar

Day 4— Curb Your Enthusiasm

yankeetooter's avatar

Day 4-Man from U.N.C.L.E.

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 4: Buffy The Vampire Slayer, of course.

ucme's avatar

yeah @Blueroses does usually talk a load of shite, nice to see sense has prevailed just this once ;¬}

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 5 – Ooh, I hate TMZ, or whatever the hell it is. Those people are so smug. I got trapped with it on the telly in a waiting room, and I thought they were horrible with their insistence on following celebrities around and asking them ridiculous, insulting questions and then acting all offended if a celeb tells them to piss off. Seriously. Can’t these folks just go to Walgreen’s or wherever in peace?

ucme's avatar

5: Again, hate wouldn’t be the word i’d use. I do however have a strong disliking for any “reality tv” based tripe. Choose from an extensive range….

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 5 – What Not To Wear. It’s just mean, ambushing someone like that.

yankeetooter's avatar

Day 5-Jerry Springer

Vunessuh's avatar

5) American Idol.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 5 – Big Bang Theory

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 5: Hmm…Dancing With The Stars. What’s with the horrible remixes of good songs? Can’t they just use regular ballroom music? And I never know which person is the “star”.”

jonsblond's avatar

Day 5— Don’t really like Oprah I think I’d rather watch Justin Bieber night on American Idol.

linguaphile's avatar

Day 5 Jersey Shore. Makes me shudder with repulsion.

AmWiser's avatar

Day 5: Any of those Housewives of…...... ‘so called reality shows’.

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 5 All those Beauty and the Beast type crap programs.

ucme's avatar

6: Fawlty Towers : The Builders. A lot of peoples fave episode is The Germans, but for me this beats it hands down :¬)

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 6 – WKRP Turkeys Away. The clip is 30 seconds long and worth watching for a laugh!

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 6 – It’s a dead heat between , Episodes 3 and 4, Series 2of Python. Each has a very high number of sketches I find utterly hilarious.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 6 – There isn’t a bad episode of Fawlty Towers, but my favorite is Communication Problems

@ucme The Builders is also hilarious

yankeetooter's avatar

Day 6-Seinfeld/The Marine Biologist

ucme's avatar

@Blueroses That’s my second favourite episode. “May I ask what you expected to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeests sweeping majestically…..?” Hilarious stuff!
Ah, I just noticed that was your clip!! Great minds…..

linguaphile's avatar

Day 6 pass

jonsblond's avatar

Day 6— (NSFW- language) Trick or Treat /Curb Your Enthusiasm

Vunessuh's avatar

6) “Bang” – Desperate Housewives.

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 6: Once More With Feeling from Buffy.

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 6. I have to say I am a huge Fawlty Towers fan too and I can’t think of another television series I can watch again and again. The Psychiatrist episode Link

Or the Food Inspectors… they are all brilliant.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@tinyfaery : KatawaGrey and I are almost word-perfect on that entire score!

tinyfaery's avatar

@Jill I have the CD soundtrack, but I knew all the words before I bought it. I’m an addict.

AmWiser's avatar

Day 6: Eye of the Beholder Twilight Zone (1960)

ucme's avatar

7: Ooh this is tough because there were only a dozen episodes made & they were all classics.
I suppose if push came to shove i’d probably have to say The Pyschiatrist was my least favourite. It’s like picking your least favourite sex position, there isn’t one! ;¬}

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 7 – The last one, because it was…well…the last one…

yankeetooter's avatar

Day 7-Seinfeld (the last one)...not because it was the last one, but because it really wasn’t that great…

linguaphile's avatar

Day 7— The episode in NCIS where Caitlin Todd (Sasha Alexander’s character) was killed off (Season 2 finale) The worst part was thinking she was alive then… kaput. Second worst was when Warrick died in CSI.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 7 – @ucme, I thought of The Psychiatrist also but then I remembered how lines like “How often do you manage it?” crack me up.
I guess The Anniversary Party is the episode I rewatch least but it’s still better than 90% of all newer sitcoms.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 7 – MOnty Python, Series 4, Episode 1, The Golden Age of Ballooning

So not funny to me at all, that whole episode.

_zen_'s avatar

Day 2 – BG/Earth2 (at the time)

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 7: No such thing. Every episode of Buffy is something worth seeing.

Vunessuh's avatar

7) I’m sure there have been more than a few episodes of Desperate Housewives where I was underwhelmed.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 8 – Everybody should watch Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom. I’m glad it’s back on the air, albeit on Animal Planet, while not everyone has cable.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 8 – Doctor Who or Dexter

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 8: No answer. People like different stuff.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 8 – Sci Fi science with Dr. Michio Kaku on the science channel. This guy is really cool.

Vunessuh's avatar

8) Parks and Recreation.

linguaphile's avatar

Day 8— “everyone,” meaining the mass audience? or a thinking audience? XD I think everyone should spend a little time regularly on PBS, the History, Discovery, or other educational Channels learning about the world.

AmWiser's avatar

Day 7: Uummm! They were equally all good. So I would have a hard time choosing ‘a least favorite episode’
Day 8: Dr. Oz. Something in it for everyone:-)

ucme's avatar

9: I love Rik Mayall & Ade Edmondson & this scene from Bottom always makes me laugh til I cry! Coz i’m immature like that ;¬}

Vunessuh's avatar

9) I like when shows get real sentimental and emotion or real intensely emotional. The scene in Grey’s Anatomy when there’s a gunner in the hospital and one of the doctor’s dies in Chandra Wilson’s character’s arms. He asks her if he’s dying and she tells him the truth and says ‘yes’ because she has no way of saving him. That scene always sticks out to me. I cried so freakin’ much during that episode and it’s the only episode of that show I’ve seen because everyone talked about it so much.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 9 – The first thing that came to mind was the scene on The Mary Tyler Moore Show when Mary finally loses it at the funeral for Chuckles the Clown. Chuckles had died after coming to a parade dressed as a peanut, and one of the elephants had tried to shell him.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 9 – I’ll have to agree with @aprilsimnel on that one. Good call.

Blueroses's avatar

@aprilsimnel You’re so right! Every episode I’ve seen of that show is a comic gem. Mary is an underrated genius at timing!

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 9: Hmm. I hate the “best” questions. The moment Buffy and Spike kissed at the end of “Once More With Feeling” is my best scene ever.

jonsblond's avatar

Day 7— don’t have one
Day8— How It’s Made
I’ll have to come back for day 9

yankeetooter's avatar

Day 9-Seinfeld (The Marine Biologist)...

“The sea was angry that day my friends, like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli…”

AmWiser's avatar

You want my arm to fall off – Lady Sings the Blues.
Just one of my favs.

linguaphile's avatar

Day 9— too hard to pick just one!!
Day 10— I didn’t think I would like NCIS. It just seemed to be too popular and well-liked (I usually don’t like the shows that eeeeeverybody likes, like Friends, Survivor, Bachelor, Desperate Housewives…don’t hurt me!) But… NCIS is one of the shows with the most amazing cast chemistry. They’re all hot and the show totally rocks.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 10 – I only started watching Buffy because Katawagrey got run over and she wanted to. I had no idea I’d become a rabid fan.

Vunessuh's avatar

10) House.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 10 – Nurse Jackie… You want me to invest in a protagonist who is a cheating, lying, drug-addict? Not likely. But I came to really appreciate how well Edie Falco portrays this very complex character.

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 10: Absolutely Fabulous

ucme's avatar

10: Roots

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 10: Game of Thrones

jonsblond's avatar

Day 9— When Desmond and Penny reunite on Lost, season 4.

Day 10— Oz

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 07 – Least favorite episode of your favorite t.v show
Haven’t really seen a bad episode.

Day 08 – A show everyone should watch
The Sopranos

Day 09 – Best scene ever
I can’t think of anything! Might have to come back to this one.

Day 10 – A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving
First Blood

AmWiser's avatar

Day 10: George Lopez Show

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day 11 – Probably any of the original Star Treks. Over forty years of watching reruns, my lips move when they speak.

Vunessuh's avatar

11) A lot of shows have disappointed me. I could never get into Lost or Brothers and Sisters. Thought they were crap.
@JilltheTooth You accidently answered for day 12, not day 11. :)

JilltheTooth's avatar

Crap. Sorry. I get so confused…all those numbers!

Real day 11: Stargate: Universe.

_zen_'s avatar

Fave show ever: Star Trek. Pick one.

jonsblond's avatar

Day 11— Joanie Loves Chachi I had such high hopes for those two. haha

Blueroses's avatar

Day 11 – Heros After the promise of the first season it went downhill rapidly. I like to pretend it ended after season 1.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 11 – I’ma let y’all finish, but Lost after season 2 was the most disappointing show OF ALL TIME!

I get the feeling they didn’t know whether they’d go after 2 seasons and weren’t really prepared.

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 11 – I have to agree, Heroes. Started with such promise and then nose dived.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 12 – I’ve seen almost every episode of The Monkees at least 5 times, mostly when I was as a kid, and it was in reruns.

jonsblond's avatar

Day 12— The Brady Bunch, “Hawaii Bound” I’ve seen it probably more like 10 times, at least

ucme's avatar

12: I’ve seen every episode of Fawlty Towers dozens of times.
Still makes me laugh, even though I know the script by now.

Vunessuh's avatar

12) I’ve seen reruns of Project Runway many, many times.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 12: Doctor Who, The Shakespeare Code

and ditto what @ucme said.

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 11: Dollhouse (I liked it, but it could have been so much better.)

Day 12: Any episode of BTVS.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 13: My favourite show when I as a kid was probably either Monty Python or The Carol Burnett Show. I loved watching sketch shows.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day – 13: Probably Ed Sullivan. The whole family gathered in peace around one focus was a rare and lovely thing.

ucme's avatar

13: The Banana Splits…..tra la la la la la la tra la la la la la la ;¬}

Vunessuh's avatar

13) Rocko’s Modern Life and believe it or not, I watched The Golden Girls and Designing Women alllllll the time.

jonsblond's avatar

Day 13— The Carol Burnett Show. I have good memories of watching the show with my parents and all of us laughing, even if I didn’t get some of the jokes at the time since I was so young. Thanks for the reminder @aprilsimnel. =)

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 13: The Price Is Right. I loved watching it with my granny.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 13 – Sesame Street and The Electric Company
I love Grover and Fargo North, Decoder

linguaphile's avatar

Day 11 – A show that disappointed you— Glee. I was a total GLEEK, loved the first season, then Will Schuster turned weird…
Day 12 – An episode you’ve watched more than 5 times—at least half of the Spongebob episodes. Daughter’s favorite.
Day 13 – Favorite childhood show—from age 8 to 12, Love Boat and Fantasy Island.

jonsblond's avatar

@tinyfaery The Cliffhanger Game was my favorite! This will bring back some memories for ya.

tinyfaery's avatar

@jonsblond I have Price Is Right for Wii and it has the game with the song. Awesome.

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 12 – The only television program I have watched repeatedly is Fawlty Towers, so any episode from that series.

Day 13 – Skippy (no suprise I ended up living where I live then).

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 14 – Oooh. Well, for a long time, it was probably the Doctor. He’s been superseded by Cesare Borgia.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day – 14: Mal Reynolds; Firefly, closely followed by David Tennant’s Doctor.

ucme's avatar

14: Edmund Blackadder. In all his hilarious guises.

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 14: Spike/William from…Buffy.

jonsblond's avatar

Day 14— Gob Bluth or Tobias Funke from Arrested Development. It’s really hard for me to pick between the two.

Blueroses's avatar

@JilltheTooth You used my top two answers!
I’ll go with Captain Jack Harkness (Doctor Who/Torchwood) or Dexter

Bellatrix's avatar

14 – Don Draper, Mad Men.
15 – Have to come back on this one.

jonsblond's avatar

Day 15— Maggie O’Connell from Northern Exposure

JilltheTooth's avatar

Dat 15 – Either Kathryn Janeway or Buffy. Not sure which.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day15 – Ooh, if Joan hadn’t said that awful thing to Paul’s girlfriend Sheila on Mad Men, it would be her. But she did, hence, I bestow the honour to Daria Morgendorffer.

“You’re standing on my neck. La-la-la-laaa-la.

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 15: Betcha think I’m gonna say Buffy. Actually, my fave female character of all time is Karen Walker from Will & Grace.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@tinyfaery : That’s OK, I got Buffy for you.

Bellatrix's avatar

15 I am going to go with Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan from Mash. I also love Peggy Olsen from Mad Men but I didn’t want to go with two Mad Men characters.

I just looked at a list of female characters from tv shows and you know, there are not so many strong, independent, kiss ass women out there. A few, but very much in the minority.

Blueroses's avatar

@Bellatrix did you really mean to say “kiss ass” women there? :)

Day 15: I like Julia Louis Dreyfuss in The New Adventures of Old Christine
or Laura Linney in The Big C

Bellatrix's avatar

LOL!!! I did say that but I meant… far out .. KICK ASS. How hilarious!!!! OMG.

jonsblond's avatar

Day 16— The Bachelor I feel normal when I see how insecure and crazy these bitches get for a douchebag. seriously, lol. Plus, my husband will watch along with me and we get to make fun of everyone. win win.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day – 16: Survivor. I’m fascinated by how they edit probably hundreds of hours of tape to come up with maybe 15 hours of broadcast time…

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 16 I have a few trash TV pleasures. I will go with Project Runway.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 16 – Hmm. Every so often, I’ll watch Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives to drool over huge portions of delicious-looking food I wouldn’t dare eat for fear of dying of heart failure on the spot.

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 16: I admit to watching various Real Housewives episodes with my wife.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 16—RuPaul’s Drag Race. The catfighting makes Real Housewives look like amateurs!

jonsblond's avatar

Day 17— favorite mini-series, V (1983)

ucme's avatar

15: Penelope Pitstop ;¬}
16: n/a
17: Roots

Blueroses's avatar

@linguaphile I don’t know how I could have forgotten Abby Scuito. I love her!

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 17 – Ooh, probably The Forsyte Saga (2002).

linguaphile's avatar

@Blueroses me too! I wanna be Abby when I grow up

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 17 – Band of Brothers.
Day 18 – True Blood
Day 19 – The Tudors

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day – 18: Big Bang Theory

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 19 – Toss-up between three: the Monty Python boys with Carol Cleveland, the cast of The Dick Van Dyke Show, and the cast of the Mary Tyler Moore Show.

ucme's avatar

18: I love the Benny Hill show intro, but I think this fits so much better.
19: John Cleese, Prunella Scales, Andrew Sachs & Connie Booth….the flawless cast of, yup, you guessed it, Fawlty Towers….again!

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 18: No answer.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 18 (Best title sequence) Dexter
A perfect introduction to the show with the blood spatter references of the orange and tabasco and it lets you know that you will like this killer.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 18 (whoopsie!) – The Dick Van Dyke show, because there were three different title sequences and the suspense was, “Is Dck going to trip over the ottoman today?”

But the title sequence for Game of Thrones is just so well done, I actually wish it would last longer, which I suppose it will when they go into Lannister territory. Nice!

linguaphile's avatar

Day 18— the kid in me still loves the Dukes of Hazzard title sequence :D

jonsblond's avatar

Day 18— The Simpsons

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 19: BTVS, of course.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 19: Any time @ucme types in Fawlty Towers, I’m just going to say “ditto”.

jonsblond's avatar

Day 19— Arrested Development

linguaphile's avatar

Day 19— NCIS— like I said on another thread, they’re all hot in their own ways and I love the chemistry between the characters/actors.

JilltheTooth's avatar

19 – WKRP

aprilsimnel's avatar

Day 21 – JD and Turk from Scrubs. When they do silly things like sing the theme to Sanford & Son, that’s adorable.

tinyfaery's avatar

Day 20: Spike & Buffy

jonsblond's avatar

Day 20— Sawyer and Kate from Lost

linguaphile's avatar

Day 20… Fred and Wilma! They were the first couple on TV to share the same bed too XD

Trojans40's avatar

Day 20… Chuck and Sarah. Longest Tv sitcom kiss I have seen.

Blueroses's avatar

Day 20: Ned and Chuck on Pushing Daisies. It was so sweet when they figured out how to kiss without touching.

Bellatrix's avatar

Day 20 – Favourite Kiss – Maggie and Joel from Northern Exposure.

jonsblond's avatar

@Bellatrix Jon and I watched that show religiously. I miss it!

Bellatrix's avatar

It was a fabulous show. I watched them all on Foxtel a year or two ago.

linguaphile's avatar

Day 21—the ones between Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepard’s characters on “Moonlighting,” and between Castle and Kate on “Castle.”

Blueroses's avatar

Day 21: Mary and Rhoda on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”

JilltheTooth's avatar

Day-20—: Yeah, the Castle and Kate one did it for me, too.

tinyfaery's avatar

Laverne & Shirley

Day 20 (I really should try not to answer these when I’m in a hurry): In a Python sketch, some footy players make a goal and they, er, hug, in celebration. At one (much too brief) point, Eric Idle leaps into Michael Palin’s arms and they kiss. It’s so cute. And they were so young, 26 or 27, I think?

Day 22— fav series finale- Saved by the Bell
Day 23— most annoying— ENTIRE cast of Jersey Shore followed closely by all the Desperate Housewives of ________city. 1 minute of those tv shows = 10 point drop in IQ points.

Day 22 – The second Newhart‘s, where “Bob” wakes up and he’s in bed with Suzanne Pleshette as “Emily” from the first 70s-era Bob Newhart Show, making the entire second Newhart series a bad dream!

Day 23 – David Spade’s character in Just Shoot Me. I tried to watch it once, and the snark got to me. I had to change the channel after only a few minutes. (Runner up: Samantha from Sex In The City. Her speaking voice and her entire attitude put me off the show.)

I’ve been such a terrible host of this question. I quit Fluther for several days then never came back to this question. Thank you everyone for playing along. I really do appreciate it. I adore television. We are without cable at the moment and are appreciating local channels for now. It’s funny how one can forget the wonders of PBS when you have 300 channels to choose from.

Day 21— Favorite friendship- Bert and Ernie
Day 22— Favorite series finale- Cheers (we have this recorded on VHS, lol)
Day 23— Most annoying character- Fran Drescher as The Nanny
Day 24— Best quote- Homer: Facts are meaningless. You could use facts to prove anything that’s even remotely true!

Day25— A show you plan on watching. Dexter (must watch from the beginning. thank goodness for Family Video)
Day 26— OMG WTF season finale- Lost
Day 27— Best pilot episode- Arrested Development sigh

Day 28— First tv show obsession- Gilligan’s Island
Day 29— Current tv show obsession- many. Survivor and Chopped are runners up for first place.
Day 30— Saddest character death.- Charlie from Lost

Day 26 – OMG WTF? Season finale – True Blood any season but Season Four when Bill is in the ... well you will have to watch. Don’t want to spoil it for any True Blood fans now or in the future.

Day 27 – Best pilot episode – The Sopranos. Loved this series.

Day 28 – First t.v show obsession – Skippy. No wonder I ended up living in Australia. I used to rush home from school to watch Skippy. Damned upset now I know Skippy couldn’t do all those amazing things.

Day 29 – Current t.v show obsession – Mad Men.

Day 30 – Saddest character death – Cold Feet. I don’t want to tell you who dies but if you haven’t seen Cold Feet and you like rom-coms… you have to check out Cold Feet. Have tissues handy later in the series though.
