F. Troop, Gilligans Island, Mary Tyler More, Mash, Married With Children, All In The Family, Seinfeld, Friends, Johnny Carson, Rohan and Martins Laugh In, Saturday Night Live back in the early days before it became political, just a few of the so many great shows I can remember that will never be duplicated. The good old comedy's seems to be a thing of the past?

Political correctness, and bad language killed the funny shows.
To many people just waiting to be offended these days.

Not actually " Funny " when a laugh track is added. In England, for example, most American TV programs the laugh track is eliminated. Why? you may ask it is extremely Annoying!

Maybe, we have simply lost the ability to laugh at ourselves.

The need to laugh at, etc. those we determine our "enemies" supersedes all.

President Bush (actually both of them) had the ability to laugh at themselves. Good role models.

I still watch "Seinfeld" reruns, even ones I've already seen, and laugh out loud. There are others, many of which have already been mentioned, that I find humorous, but for just hysterical laughter, Seinfeld is king.

How about Morticia & Gomez & Uncle Fester!

No doubt for us its a tie between Seinfeld & The Golden Girls.

Does Boca Del Vista remind you of anywhere else?
