With the release of television shows on DVD we can now spend an infinite amount of time watching old tv series. As much as I loved "Kung Fu" as a kid, I certainly had never seen every episode until the release of the DVDs.

I am, generally speaking, on the verge of being anti-tv (not a moral stance... I just don't find it that interesting) but there is a huuuuuge nostalgia factor for me when watching that show. Additionally, "Caine" is still a geniunely charming character which in most episodes over-rides the inconsistent writing and crappy budget.

Anyway, just wondering...
Who here has seen every single episode of which television series?

House, M.D. (so far)
Chappelle's Show
Ren & Stimpy
etc.

I've seen every I Love Lucy episode. Only because we didn't have cable when I was growing up.

Every episode of M*A*S*H and The West Wing by choice.

Probably have seen every episode of Married with Children and The Simpsons.

If we're talking nostalgia, WKRP in Cincinnati was one of my all time favorites.

OH MY GOD, THEY'RE TURKEYS!!!!!!

More recently, Married with Children.

I'm sure I've seen every episode of the original Star Trek and Next Generation. I've also seen every episode of the new Battlestar Galactica.

I can't say with certainty that I've never missed an episode of anything else, although its possible.

Hmm, that's tough. I don't think I've seen every single episode of Cheers but pretty close. Considering it lasted like 275 episodes that's pretty good.

I have seen every episode of "The Office" so far... I don't forsee that changing anytime soon. It's only been what... 27 episodes so far.

The last few years of M*A*S*H were pretty sad. I quit watching completely after Radar left, and it was lame as hell at that point.

The first three seasons of M*A*S*H are among the best comedies ever on TV, right up there with WKRP and Cheers.

My friend lent me the first two seasons of "The Sopranos". They were pretty good but I don't think I like watching the episodes back-to-back. Cussing and killing started to look normal and blasť.

I watched a lot of MASH growing up... not every episode but a lot. Do you remember the one where Hawkeye is trying to verify the id of one of the Vietnamese and the guy just says, "I am me" to which Hawkeye responds, "Well, I guess you wouldn't lie about that." Classic.

Well, yeah, that is the latest trend in comedies- greedy/ mean/ depraved/ etc. characters with no redeeming qualities acting outrageously. Seriously, look at some of the more recent comedies and think about the characters. I'm not saying it isn't funny but there is definitely a difference between 70s funny (somewhat endearing slacker- think Animal House or Meatballs), 80s funny (goofy beyond belief- think Mannequinn or Police Academy) and 90s funny (depraved- think Wedding Crashers or Bad Santa).

I used to watch that show as a kid. I think my favorite episode was when a hooker became infatuated with Harry. She became distraught believing he wouldn't reciprocate the affection and he had to talk her down. To everyone's surprise, Harry did this by saying, "I don't know... maybe I do love her. Who's to say when love begins?" or something like that.

I remember that episode 25 years later. Hilarious!

The show also had one of the funniest individual throwaway lines I've ever heard. One of the characters was on trial, and they hired an incredibly sleazy lawyer who was doing everything possible to get them off. In court, at one point the prosecuting lawyer was asked to make his case. He stood up and started to go up in front of the judge, and when he passed by the defense table the sleazy lawyer stuck his foot out and tripped him. As the prosecuting attorney stumbled, the defense lawyer said, "Still drinking, eh?"

If I ever go to court, I want a lawyer that works that hard.

Watching Billy Crystal and that cynic Black doorman. Dude, that doorman rocked. Honestly, he's the genesis for all my takes on humor. He kicked all ass...He ended up going onto his own spin-off, "Benson". The character was even more cynical than he was on Soap, as he was working for the State Governor.

"Benson" also had Rene Auberjonois as one of the best pompus a$$holes ever.

"Soap" was as much a pioneer in humor as All In The Family was, IMO.

After reading the thread again, I'd have to add in "Taxi" as one of the best ensemble comedies ever. Also, "Newheart", if only for the greatest last episode in a comedy.

I would definitely give the first season a try. That was my absolute favorite cartoon before they added Scrappy.

I would also like to see Speed Racer and Battle of the Planets, again. And while I'm on the nostalgia trip I would really like to see The Wild Wild West again. I loved those shows as a kid. I wonder if they would still hold any interest or if I have outgrown them completely? I recently bought The Incredible Hulk (Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno) which I loved as a kid but it is just unwatchable.

My two favorites: Arrested Development and Firefly. Both were doomed by FOX'es crappy station but both were two of the best written and casted television shows in the past 5 years.

I guess i need to check out Arrested Development sometime. I hear great things about it. Ive always loved Jason Bateman too. I think hes always had great comedic timing. He had a show i loved back in the early 80's called "Its your move" where he played a mean spirited teen. Im sure its pretty horrible now.

So many of the shows i loved as a kid are truly horrible now.

Kung Fu was a favorite of mine as well. I have all the DVDs. MASH was my all time favorite show of all time, regardless of genre. My other favorites (in no particular order):

Taxi, Hogan's Heroes, Barney Miller, The Odd Couple (the first few seasons), Mission Impossible, Star Trek TNG (although Mr Spock is my all time favorite TV character), Wiseguy, Paper Chase, Secret Agent (aka Dangerman), Maverick, Rawhide, Mannix, Kojak, The Untouchables, Tales of the Gold Monkey (unfortunately short-lived), Tour of Duty.

Here's the basic plot of every House episode:

1- The patient has some unexpected symptoms.
2- House and the team get involved and keep going backwards until the patient has deteriorated whithin minute of death.
3- House is an a$$hole to everybody including the patient. He is accused by his colleagues of not caring about the patient but his own satisfaction of triumph.
4- Some last minute desperate conversation turns on the light in House's head.
5- He runs over and searches every inch of the near death patient's body disregarding everyone's objection. He finds a common disregarde cause for the malady. He removes it and saves the patient.

Have you tried watching LOST (starting with season 1)? Just curious. I myself had been converted mid season 2.
Based on the premise I wanted to watch it. But I just can't commit time to a "continuing story" series. Is it as good as I've heard?

I quit watching Lost shortly after the season one finale. A month between new episodes didn't help... and I was beginning to get the feeling they were just making it up as they went along. It seemed like the writers didn't even know where they were going with it.

It's too bad too, because I really enjoyed it at first. Maybe it's improved since then, I don't know...
thanks. Answers my question. So "Lost" won't be "Missed" in my life.

Yeah, like people got tired of Columbo saying "If you don't mind, sir. Just one more question. . ."

;)
True. But as much as I loved Peter Falk, I could never get into Columbo.

As a high school kid, I watched every episode of Kung Fu, except for the series finale, and to this day have never seen that episode.
Haven't missed much. Was not the peak of that show's quality, as I recall. The show had gotten TOO mystical. Had already jumped the shark, IMO. I'm glad they ended it before it got too silly. I have the DVDs. But I havent watched them yet. Maybe when I watch the finale I'll change my mind.

Yes. I would recommend starting from season 1, and watching the dvds (no commercials and breaks) and now, just wait for the season 2 dvd OR download the tv eps.

13 pages and not single mention of Miami Vice, Hill Street Blues, or ER. :shake:

Earl and The Office are the only "can't miss" shows for me now, although I'm getting into Battlestar Galactica. I have to admit I'm pretty sure I've seen every episode of Friends. I practically failed out of college because USA Network played Rockford Files at times that conflicted with my class schedule.

I watched a lot of MASH growing up... not every episode but a lot. Do you remember the one where Hawkeye is trying to verify the id of one of the Vietnamese and the guy just says, "I am me" to which Hawkeye responds, "Well, I guess you wouldn't lie about that." Classic.

Someone posted Matlock and it made me remember, in the 1960's I need to add the Andy Griffith Show, I don't think that has been listed. Also in the 60's, Alfred Hitchcock Presents. In the 1970's I want to add the three shows that rotated in the same NBC timeslot, that's Columbo, McMillan & Wife and McCloud. In 1980's I'll add Miami Vice, and for late night in the pre-SNL days, I'll add Midnight Special. During the first couple of years when Wolfman Jack was the only host they had live on stage everyone from Steely Dan to ELO to Savoy Brown to Uriah Heep. Then they added Helen Reddy as co-host and the typical act was Gladys Knight & the Pips and Helen Reddy would sing her latest whatever. After a couple of years of that, Saturday Night Live made it's debut.

Maybe he think the Koreans and Vietnamese all look alike and he got confused?

Here's the basic plot of every House episode:

1- The patient has some unexpected symptoms.
2- House and the team get involved and keep going backwards until the patient has deteriorated whithin minute of death.
3- House is an a$$hole to everybody including the patient. He is accused by his colleagues of not caring about the patient but his own satisfaction of triumph.
4- Some last minute desperate conversation turns on the light in House's head.
5- He runs over and searches every inch of the near death patient's body disregarding everyone's objection. He finds a common disregarde cause for the malady. He removes it and saves the patient.

BUT...

I love this show.
From the look of the season finale, the writers may be aware of those conventions and willing to bend them in on themselves.
