Have to agree on Malcolm. I watch it all the time now, I watched the first season or so on it's initial run, then I just forgot about it. The Sunday FOX lineup was too bizarre to keep track of what was gunna air and when

Friends has always and will always be my favourite sitcom. No idea why, but I just loved it. I think the cast was just so excellent (Chandler is one of the most fun characters in TV history, as far as I'm concerned).


Yeah, I'm in my 20's now and enjoy it. I can't watch it for hours like I can with Friends (I don't know how I'm not sick of that yet, lol), but I will watch it every time I see it on TV.

Niles is brilliant. Such an epic character/actor. Even when I hated the show as a teenager, the only parts I ever even chuckled at were when Niles was on screen. I specifically remember the only episode I liked as a teenager was the one where they were doing some type of workout in Niles living room. Hilarious. I'd love to see that episode again now that I actually like the show.

I also love Daphne just cause of her accent. The father is a troll and absolutely hilarious.


Besides the sports channels, I watch this station (and Peach TV, which shows Frasier quite a bit) the most. More than the movie channels even.
Friends was good until like 2000 or so. Once Monica and Chandler hooked up it lost a lot of my interest.

She's cute, but the show is lame. Broke girl in Brooklyn making fun of Brooklyn hipsters, hohoho. I watched the pilot and that was enough. I can't stand Whitney Cummings though, so I wasn't very surprised.

Never caught Whitney. I watched about 2-3 episodes of Broke Girls, but found the writing horrible. If Whitney Cummings is responsible for that, then I'm not impressed either. A lot.

The ONLY reason I watch this show is for the two broke girls. It's not funny aside from the little Asian guy, the jokes are horrible, the delivery is horrible. I really hate it, but can't take my eyes off the screen when I see Kat in that mustard yellow work uniform, accentuating her assets so brilliantly. One things for sure, they have a great stylist/costume designer (w/e you call them).....

This.

I only watched 10 mins of an show---and that was enough. I just wanted to watch Kat Dennings in a tight diner uniform. Man, there's something about her--besides her assets of course.

The show is OK, but Kat dennings is terrible. She delivers her lines like a man passing a kidney stone. Painfully.

Poorly written, poorly acted, poorly executed. Not that this is a first on television, but really. It's godawful.

It's a CBS sitcom, these are requirements.

I disagree, i'm watching a friend of mine passing kydney stones as we speak, I'm not joking he is in bad shape & he is MUCH funnier. The sounds this poor ******* is making is cracking me & his sister up to no end.

Just bringing this thread back up. I'm surprised that so many people hate it. I think it's the funniest show on tv right now. The asian manager, russian cook, black cashier, polish neighbor, rich girl, and poor girl are all just hilarious to me and the jokes border too much for TV. I'm not saying they are good actors or that the story line is good (neither), but I laugh my ass off a few times every episode.

I don't. The jokes are so dry, forced, and almost expected.

Wow. I've never watched this show outside of the little bits of commercials I've seen, but they sure do have their bases covered, huh?

Oh yeah. If you've never seen a racial stereotype character in a sitcom before, I imagine it'd be a gutbuster. I feel so bad for Garrett Morris.

I used to watch this sitcom, first 10 or 15 episodes. This was the show that broke comedy for me though. I don't really watch dramas or anything so I'd watch basically any decent sitcom on TV. Got tired of doing that with this show and now I just stick to the good ones and find it really hard to get into new ones.

I too am shocked that it's popular because no one you talk to knows or watches this show but I'm guessing it's popular with the 2.5 Men demographic in the US.
