My Top Three Favorite TV Sitcoms
I have a few favorite TV sitcoms that I could watch over and over again. Some you might agree with and some you might laugh at me, but that's okay.
I'd have to say that my most favorite TV sitcom is 'M*A*S*H' that aired for eleven seasons from 1972 to 1983. I've always been partial to TV shows and movies that have to do with wartime. In my opinion, the 'M*A*S*H' writers did a great job mixing comedy with the seriousness of the Korean War.
If I had to choose between the seasons of changing characters on 'M*A*S*H', I'd have to choose the early seasons with Lieutenant Colonel Henry Blake and Trapper John McIntyre. The episode that shocked me the most was when Henry Blake was discharged, but you find out at the end of the season ending episode that he never made it home. It is revealed by Radar O'Reilly that Henry's plane crashed n the Sea of Japan. The ending of that episode floored every 'M*A*S*H' fan. Many were not happy about that ending.
My second favorite TV sitcom is 'The Office.' I never watched the show when it aired on NBC. I knew it had something to do with being set in Scranton, Pennsylvania, but never thought it would be something I'd be interested in watching. It was after the series ended and became available to binge watch on streaming services, did I give it a shot after a friend suggested it. Wow, I became hooked and watched the 201 episode, 9 season series in less than two months. It's one of those TV sitcoms that can make you laugh even when you are having a bad day.
Okay, don't laugh, but probably my third favorite TV sitcom is 'The Andy Griffith Show.' Sure, it's one of those shows that can be a bit goofy, but I love the simplicity of a small town 1960s setting, where everyone knows each other and nothing really bad happens. How can you not laugh at the antics of Barney Fife? Exactly.
