I love comedies. Always have, always will. I watch a butt load of comedies. I mean, a BUTT load. There are the classics for me such as Everybody Loves Raymond, King of Queens, Friends, and The Office. I can watch episodes of these shows time after time and never get sick of them. To me, that’s what makes a good comedy: the re-watch value. How many times can you watch a certain episode and not get tired of it? How many times can you watch a certain episode and still laugh at it just as much as the day you first saw it? All of those shows I named fit into that category for me.
The shows I have listed are shows that I wish we could have gotten more episodes of. Whether the show was cancelled, or it just ended, I wish we could’ve gotten more out of these shows. They don’t have that high of an episode count, but they can still make me laugh. No matter how many times I watch an episode, or a scene, or just one specific joke, I still laugh hysterically at all of these shows.
I wish a lot of these were still on the air. I think it’s a darn shame that some of these aren’t anymore. I don’t know if it was due to the timeslot certain shows had that caused people not to watch or what because it certainly wasn’t the fact that they weren’t funny. If some of you haven’t seen some of these shows, I highly suggest you go watch them. Whether on Netflix or another place you can rent DVDs, go watch these shows!
These shows are ones I hope don’t get forgotten when talking about great comedies. Some of these may have only lasted a few episodes, but I still laugh at those few episodes more than I ever have at 2 Broke Girls, which is still on somehow!
So please, take a look at this list of great comedies you should definitely check out!
