When you turn on almost any TV channel, you're confronted by an almost endless selection of reality tv shows and hour long dramas. But sometimes you just need a good laugh. That's where sitcoms come in, and there have been some legendary ones over the years. Seinfeld. Cheers. The Office. The list goes on and on.
Then there are the ones that don't come up in conversation immediately. A lot of people will bring up Parks and Recreation or Brooklyn Nine-Nine when talking about the funniest sitcoms of all time but not as many people think of Spin City. That's probably because Spin City was not one of the funniest sitcoms of all time but it still had its moments, and it's worth revisiting.
There are more than a few sitcoms on that list, the ones that don't necessarily spring immediately to mind when you're looking for something old school to binge. They are funny and unique. Plus, if you haven't watched them in a long time, you've probably forgotten all the jokes. Parks and Recreation is amazing you can probably recite the Lil' Sebastian Memorial episode from memory at this point.
