We won’t be surprised if we cause an uproar based simply on the simply fact that there are many different opinions all across the planet.
Here the only opinion that matters is ours! =)
No, but we really would love to see some comments on this countdown.
We didn’t fall for fanfare or media propaganda. We focused on either great story telling, acting, script writing, or inventiveness.
Here we go…
#50 DREAM ON
It was just a fun and quirky show that set a lot of new trends in television.
It lasted six years and went for 120 episodes on HBO. It was funny and also one of the more inventive shows I have ever watched.
According to Wikipedia”
“The show centered on Martin Tupper’s life in an apartment in New York City with his teenage son, and relating to his ex-wife, while trying to date other women and succeed as an editor for a small book publisher. The show was notable for its frequent use of clips from old movies and TV shows to express Martin’s inner life and feelings, which lent it much of its quirky appeal, reminding viewers about the impact of TV on their consciousness. The show was also significant for being one of the first American sitcoms to use uncensored profanity and nudity.”

#49 ALL IN THE FAMILY
Could have been rated higher…but call me crazy I have a problem with a show glorifying the ignorance and stupidity of a bigot/racist.
Yet, there were so many poignant moments and the acting was stupendous, that you just can’t help but think…these were talented people making some really daring stuff.
The comedy revolves around Archie Bunker (Carroll O’Connor), a working-class World War II veteran. He is a very outspoken bigot, seemingly prejudiced against everyone who is not a U.S.-born, politically conservative, heterosexual White Anglo-Saxon Protestant male, and dismissive of anyone not in agreement with his view of the world. His ignorance and stubbornness tend to cause his malapropism-filled arguments to self-destruct. He often responds to uncomfortable truths by blowing a raspberry. He longs for simpler times when people sharing his viewpoint were in charge, as evidenced by the nostalgic theme song “Those Were the Days”, the show’s original title.
