    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think that you missed the point completely. If anything, it was the anti-Seinfeld. It was mostly broad humor, and not meant to be cerebral or clever. It drew people in because these were characters with which the contemporary generation could identify and with whom they could emphasize.

    This was a generation which was undergoing a post-adolescent period more or less unprecedented this century. No other generation, up to that point, had spent as much time as mine did, in stasis, between college and a "real job" - and this was not just in the cities, among the highly educated, but was broadly true (in Canada and the United States). It was the generation the grew up in the 80s and into the 90s, was generally more conservative than their parents on any number of issues, and so could neither strongly identify with the aspirations of their parents, but also, could not easily fulfill the success and comfort levels that were common for their parents boomer generation. This was the Reality Bites generation. So, the optimistic, surrogate family of Friends provided a welcome refuge. This was also well before the segmentation of media, and when I was in college, it was very common for groups of friends to get together to actually watch Friends.

    I agree with your background analysis, but I think the question was not whether it was a popular show, but a good one -- and it simply wasn't. You should have been huddled around My So Called Life.

    Most network comedy shows are too formulaic and bore the shit out of me. I enjoy if it's awkward or uncomfortable or mean. I need at least a bit of cringe-worthy.


    I don't laugh, I smile.

    Seems like people have already named most of the shows I'd recommend (It's Always Sunny, Community, Parks N Rec).


    Actually next month it will only have been 9 years since the last episode.

    Does anybody remember On the Air? After Twin Peaks, ABC let Mark Frost and David Lynch have some fun with a very weird take on a sitcom. Haven't seen an episode in 10 years, but remember it being funny as hell.

    Old simpson is one of the best things to watch on TV. I haven´t watched an entire episode after season 13, though. Really went downhill for me after that.
    Seinfeld might the greatest gem on TV. I never get tired of watching it. I used to be a huge Friends fan, probably watched all 10 seasons a huge number of times, but with time I´ve realized that it was easy comedy centered around people who started getting more and more famous and whose characters the audience wanted to be in a way. Seinfeld is way superior and one of the most re-watchable shows ever imo.

    If/When the Simpsons is added to Netflix, my life as I know it will come to a close as I proceed to marathon through the 20-something seasons.

    *edit, Seinfeld is probably a genius as well. He is universally appealing, almost nobody dislikes him, where as most other comics will be more polarized.
