Idiot Box Meme

I've been tagged by Lolly! Who asks the following:

1. What TV show have you seen every episode of?
EVERY episode?? I Love Lucy, The Flintstones, Yes Dear. Andy Griffith, Leave it to Beaver, Ozzie and Harriet. And all of those via re-runs. Oh, and "Life with the Kumbai" as it aired. Totally dug it.

2. What show makes you laugh until you cry? certain episodes of Seinfeld, the cartoons listed below (I am hearing "Oatmeal Oatmeal..." being sung in my head as I type) although I am not sure I "cried."

3. What show do you wish had not been canceled?
The Muppet Show (I had forgotten about this, but I totally agree with Lolly) Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Freakazoid. All terrific kid type shows that made me laugh along with the offspring.

4. What show do you wish WOULD be canceled?
Most adult cartoons. And Ann Coulter. And yes, all of the free world will hate me for this, but all of those C.S.I. type shows. Murder and violence are not entertainment in my book. I don't care that they find the bad guy and use 'state of the art technology!'; constantly showing mutilated, tortured, raped, strangled, or otherwise dead (usually) women, usually in some form of undressed mispositioned bodies, is desensitizing to the soul. The reality of these "detectives" is questionable at best. No detective in her/his right mind would investigate some of those scenes without the use of gloves, masks, eye shields/barriers, and without thousands of dollars of taxpayer money. Not gunna happen. That, and in a tight white tank top with silicone cleavage bulging out, long hair dangling over the corpse? yeah. That is typical of all the cops I know.

5. Who is your favorite TV character, either past or present? Sheriff Andy Taylor, who allowed people to grow while saving face. About as real as a C.S.I. agent I suppose, but a better role model in my opinion. I'm sure there are others, but off the top of my head I'd say Andy.

I would like to tag

Me too! I'm with you on the crime dramas, although I ended up back watching them *because* I think they're so horrible. Just to laugh at them.

I LOVED!!! this post was SOO me too! I totally agree with you about Andy! He is one of my Heros. Especially when he pulls out his guitar!

You're totally cracking me up.

Do you know, I wasn't allowed to watch cartoons as a child. My kids watched them, but I have never ever learned to like them.

This was a fun read!
