Despite the thread from December about 80s television, I'm gonna give this a shot. Dead shows... not on anymore, etc.

I figure it might spark some conversation, memories, and a lot of "Damn, why isn't that on my list" goodness. I'm also bored, tired, and too fucking stupid to go to bed.

10. Liquid Television
9. Sifl & Olly
8. You Can't Do That On Television
7. Beavis & Butt-Head (surprisingly poor number of tribute sites)
6. Salute Your Shorts
5. The State
4. MST3K (The Joel Years)
3. Hardcore TV (Short-lived HBO sketch comedy show. Good luck finding a link.)
2. Mr. Show
1. Upright Citizens Brigade


Larry Sanders, The Critic, Hey Dude, Muppet Babies, and WCWSN... better luck next time.

You DARE forget FAMILY GUY????




What is Mattitude?
Utilizing the belief system and work ethic (Mattributes) of THE Matt Hardy to create a better life for yourself by fulfilling your goals and dreams. Mattitude is a quality that can help anyone -- regardless of background or past -- to achieve success. You just have to make it a lifestyle, a mindset, a religion. Mattitude, is something that can not be taught or learned. Mattitude is something that burns within. In the ring, Mattitude is the intangible, the x-factor, that gives me an advantage over everyone else.

Family Guy wasn't terribly amusing, and I've never understood how people are so demoted to Sifl and Olly. I only saw it once or twice, though. I would throw in the animated Tick, which was hilarious. And maybe Dr. Katz, but I seem to remember it not being very funny after awhile. And Jenny Jones. I miss Raymond Moses so bad.

"I'm going to fill a dark awful basement with radioactive cockroaches. Yep. Big nasty ones like skateboards on legs, that go click-click-click when they walk. And maybe poisonous. I'm going to starve them for a week.

Then I'm going to catch all the coercive priss-spigots in the world, the ones that want to ban second-hand smoke and dwarf-tossing and beer. I'll smear the rascals with bacon fat, so the roaches won't know what they're eating, as otherwise they might not.

Then I'm going to toss all those greased busybodies into the basement. And whoop. And dance. Ha."

"Tom, I'll disagree."

IIRC, Red Dwarf can be seen on some PBS affiliates. It is syndicated (syndicated to PBS affiliates that is), or has been.

In no particular order:

* Freakazoid!
* Animaniacs
* MST3K (before the main cast left; the Pearl seasons were a cry for help)
* TV Nation
* Sifl & Olly
* The Tick (animated)
* Night Court
* Picket Fences
* Cracker (Brit version was better, but the American remake was in an impossible time slot)
* The Muppet Show

This thread's title was worded very poorly. I was going to go with "Top 10 Dead TV Shows" but that sounded weird. Basically I was going for shows that just plain aren't on tv anymore, thus no Family Guy on my list.

Clerks: TAS would have made it, but I honestly didn't even know about the show until it was already gone and just ended up getting the DVD. Hey Lando.

I still watch Daria way too much on The N/Noggin to put it on this list, even though the eps are edited so badly sometimes that it approaches the "MST3K Without Joel" level of ickyness. It looks like from the lists that I should have just started an MST3K thread. MY FAVORITE EPS ARE "POD PEOPLE" AND "MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE"!

The State and Clerks: TAS are definitely my top two. Not a day goes by that my friends and I don't quote one or the other. I'm so excited b/c in July I'm going to Chicago to see Stella, which is made of Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, and David Wain of State and Wet Hot American Summer fame.



Yes, I like HHH! What's so wrong with that?
