Some of my favorites that I remember this early:

The Sopranos
Mr. Show
Chapelle's show
The Simpsons
Inside the Actor's studio
Buffy (of course)
Whose line is it anyway?

Buffy (because of the great writing, the characters, the kicking ass)
Angel (because of the great writing, the characters, the hunky Angel)
Seinfeld (because it never failed to make me laugh)
Sopranos (because of the amazing writing and acting, Tony and Carmella)
Deadwood (because I like the word “cocksucker”)
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (again with the making me laugh)
The Amazing Race (best reality show on tv. Ever)
The Muppet Show (wow. Almost forgot about that one. Thanks for the reminder!)
Cheers (because I’m old and have fond memories of watching it with my dad.)
Hill Street Blues (see ‘Cheers’)
Looney Tunes (prominently featuring Bugs vs. Elmer or Daffy)

Oh, NewsRadio... grossly underrated. The whole cast was genius. Jimmy James is probably the funniest single character on TV of all time.

Also love The Daily Show, esp. since Jon Stewart. It's the anti-news.

SJ said...

Mr. James. YES! Whenever I see that actor, I always say 'MISTER JAMES!' out loud. It gets on everyone's nerves, yet I persist.

Pops said...

It was from Mr. James I first learned the word "hoodoo". Good times.

Conan never fails to please.

When you're high enough, almost everything on TV is captivating. Well, unless it's the BBC. I've sat through financial analysis that had me more on the edge of my seat than some of those "dramas".

By the way, what's "Aeon Flux"? I'm already half-sold by the word "flux". Could have potential.

Aeon Flux was this kick ass cartoon on MTV for a while. It had this chick (named Aeon Flux) that liked to do dirty things and shoot everything around her. I think it usually ended with her getting killed and then brought back to fight again. It always started out showing her looking dead with a fly landing on her eye and then her eye starting to move.
