I love Mythbusters, and I've never seen them say that in any episode.

Pretty much the only "reality" TV show out there worth watching.

I think you should include the Boink, Boink, after the Law and Order opener. I mean, it's the Boink, Boink!

Guys, the taglines don't necessarily have to be said in the show. Sometimes you have to really think about them. Testing urban legends... Sounds like Mythbusters to me!

I can't believe I missed Weeds. I love that show. I was trying to think of cooking shows.

Being fully indoctrinated into the Jetpunk system of no spaces, punctuation, or modifiers required, it always pleases me when I get to answer "good bad ugly" on a movie quiz and "212 men" on a TV quiz.

So sad that few quiz takers got "Friday Night Lights". It's a terrific series, even if you don't care a thing about football. Check it out on Netflix instant view.

Second this, TV shows that want to make their characters believable should study this show.

As far as i can tell it wasn't really shown outside the US, whereas most of the others were/are. In the UK it was shown on a very minor channel to an audience of around 25,000 - that's not huge exposure.

I can't friggin' stand this show. I HAAATE the guy who directs it. I think he also did Parenthood. He has all of his actors constantly chattering over each other which I think he believes is more realistic but is actually just incredibly annoying. He also overuses close-ups and hand-held cameras. When I'm at my parents house and my dad watches either show, even as background noise I just can't take it and I have to leave the room. It's true the show has almost zero to do with football. In an entire episode building up to some big game there will be maybe 90 seconds of football. If that. I don't like football so that's not my problem with the show.

Have also enjoyed Rick & Morty, The Simpsons, Futurama, Beavis and Butthead, Stranger Things, Serial Experiments: Lain, Mythbusters, and many other shows, but maybe not as much as the first group. I liked this one show with Paul Rudd I saw the first season of recently, I think it was called Living With Yourself or something like that. Really well done. Also liked 1st season of The Boys. Cobra Kai was okay but pretty corny. I was watching and sort of getting in to Watchmen and Man in the High Castle but somewhat lost interest in both. Tastes are somewhat eclectic but I dislike more shows than I like.

Saturday Night Live is one of our family taglines. Our kids used to tell their friends, "We live so far out in the sticks that we get Saturday Night Live on Tuesday!"
