Empire Magazine's 50 Best Shows Of All Time - Page 2

post #51 of 64
I am comforted by this list because it proves that British people are just as dumb as Americans despite their hoity-toity accents.

At least The Honeymooners made the top 10.

Devin is right, another shitty list is nothing to lose sleep over, but I don't think that's the case here. Just a discussion. On a message board. In the appropriate forum.

And I'll be that guy, but where is M*A*S*H?

Back in the 20th century, I was looking through some metal/hard rock/whatever magazine in a store, when I stumbled across a "Best Band of the Milenium" poll. KoRn beat out The Beatles by A LOT, and I think those were the only two bands on there. D'Oh!

Well, they DID invent the Tellytubbies.

For a confused second, I thought you meant Korn did.

Most likely wallowing in a pit of overly-sentimental, self-evident, preachy criticism of the Veet-nam war.

I'd like to argue with this, but I can't.

You must be thinking of some other show. MASH is the show where at one point the main character sits down to a meal in full surgical garb, says he's eating a dead prisoner and invites a colleague to join him for a stack of pancreas for breakfast the next day. MASH is slapstick and wordplay. The show you describe sounds like something Alan Alda would produce.

I think it's fucking hilarious that Dr. Who (2005-present!) apparently ranks higher in the minds of Empire's readership than, say, Monty Python. Or anything mentioned thus far in this thread.

I'm going to bed, popping in Season Two of the Dick Van Dyke Show, and rocking myself to sleep.

I've seen the shows you guys discuss here... it's all about degrees, as far as I can tell.
I guess the Devin Faraci who spends enormous quantities of time ranting about the stupidity of stuff people like as if it IS destroying his world must be some sort of cackling, Lynchian dwarf-doppleganger you aren't aware of.

My mistake.

This list is as subjective and horrible as any I've seen but the thing that really bothers me is the outcry for The Twilight Zone, and no mention of The Outer Limits. Because The Outer Limits kicked TTZ's ass, hard, fast, and decisively.
