Good list! I can’t believe I left Gunsmoke off mine (an oversight since rectified). It holds a place of honor with me for a number of reasons.

A lot of my friends talk about Justified, but I’ve never watched it. I need to fix that situation, from all I’ve heard.

Like Elizabeth I am a little shy in the memory department. Luckily we can edit these posts. I will just start here with these:

Corner Gas (extremely popular Canadian show)
Tonight Starring Jack Paar (he followed Steve Allen leading this show)
Love, Sidney (Tony Randall and Swoosie Kurtz)
The Great British Baking Show (Just what it says) hello2
Absolutely Fabulous (Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley)
The Young Ones (British sitcom)



All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.

As a kid, I loved the Jack Webb shows that were purportedly "based on real life". Things like Adam-12 (police) and Emergency (fireman-paramedics). They were basically just recruiting videos for the first responder services in the end. Not sure how they'd hold up if I watched them again today.

My wife and I love Columbo and have probably seen all of them, both original and revival, at this point. Even the bad ones are worth watching to see Peter Falk (RIP) in action.

One of the best sitcoms ever made. When we passed through Cincinnati on the way home from Tennessee this summer, the theme started playing in my head as soon as I saw the skyline.

Today I was watching the latest (in the UK at least) episode of Chicago Fire. It led me to remembering an old TV show called 'Til Death us do part' which featured a bigot called Alf Garnett. So, you may ask, how is that connected to Chicago Fire?
Watch... laughing6

Wasn't Alf the inspiration for Archie Bunker in All in the Family? I haven't seen 'Til Death..., just remember reading that somewhere.
