I might watch it. I stopped when she got big and even more mouthy than before. It made me feel like I was taking half an hour out of my day to watch my ex-wife on the tube. I couldn't deal with that. If she's lost the weight, I might be able to watch.

She's still mouthy, just doesn't sound as congested. Its part of her character, I hope, or yeesh.

King of Queens is my favorite show. I am definetely watching it, I think she is looking pretty dang good. I am sad to see the show end but they gave us 9 good years of television (i think its nine correct me if im wrong I am going from the top of my head).

Last year when I made it home for lunch everyday, that was my lunchtime show on re-runs. I love the show, but don't make an effort to watch it on weeknights, reruns work for me.

I saw some tv thing where they followed her around in real life; she's a lot like her character on the show; bitchy and demanding. I've always thought he was great; the show was kind of a modern day "Honeymooners".

That show was alot better before Leah got fat, bitchy and joined the Cruise Cult of Scientology.

I've always thought Kevin James' character was believable and funny.

Yes. Had a kid, used the pregnancy to bid her hubby to work Baskin-Robbins down to 5 flavors.

Very good comparison, I hadn't thought of that. Both are great shows and hate to see it end.
I can really relate to fat guy, in a couple of ways, I play golf every Saturday with three UPS guys.

I've only caught the occasional re-run. Kevin James is a pretty likeable guy.

Not a bad show at all, for such a worn out, over-done formula.

Kerry's winy ass is an annoyance on the show and she did extend the pregnant weight several seasons. Last year I thought they pseudo cancelled it because it aired at the end of the year when other series failed.

The show is worth watching for the Dad. He takes the Costanza Dad character a step further.

Go Arthur!

Of whom? Me, or television sitcoms that consistently pairs up goofy goofballs with supermodels?

Media in all its forms affects society. What we see on family sitcoms reflects what society holds as social norms and stuff like that. One of the things that sitcoms reinforce is that all women need to look like Leah Remini while all men can look like Kevin James, I think his name is.

Women need to have a particular shape, appearance, and manner while it's okay for men to be unattractive, slovenly, and frequently completely disinterested in the things important to his friends/family.

I hate that this has been typecast into sitcoms, and I believe it's one of the reasons that sitcoms have just grown stale.

There is quite a few decent comedy sitcoms out right now. I wouldnt touch that shit in the late 90's and early 2000's.

My name is Early is my fav comedy atm.
2 and a half men. Its a very good show.
King of Queens of course.
The Office is ok. I can take it in very small doses.
scrubs its just a damn great show imo.

Think thas about all i can think about, or ones i pay half ass attention too.

The wife and I were taken aback at some of the physical discrepancies between couples when we were on our honeymoon. Generally you figure it's because the guy has a lot of money, because I'm trying to figure out why a 90 pound woman would want to be trapped underneath a 260 pound gob of flab and chest hair....but then you see a guy like Kevin James get a girl like that, and well, you know that unless she's completely f*cking crazy that would never happen, because he's physically hideous and mentally...err, subpar.

It may seem shallow, but human pair bonding generally is.

That is why I love Everybody Loves Raymond. It is one of the most realistic series ever made as far as family life and what the average family is.

Neither one looks like a model. Both have flaws. Both have issues with the in-laws. Both have trouble with the kids but manage just fine.

The only off thing about the series is Debra is a stay at home mom.

I love that show as well. I still think it's still pretty extreme with Raymond's indifference to his wife, but for the most part it's a very entertaining show and pretty realistic.

Oddly enough, I think the sitcom that most reflected the average family was Rosanne. But that might just be a reflection on my own upbringing more than anything.

WOW. Maybe the average disfunctional family. I hated that show. Of course, I can't stand Rosanne either.

EDIT OK maybe disfunctional was a little brutal. I see your point about working class issues. As I said, I really can't stand Rosanne Barr so I had a hard time really enjoying the show.

I think that was a very honest portrayal of working class life in middle america, from the bad boyfriends of the daughters to their poor choices, to Dan's labor troubles, failed businesses, I always found it quite accurate (coming from a poor community myself).

Well I was thinking more in the vain of four-camera sitcoms that typically take place in one or two settings. But I gotcha.

I do enjoy My Name Is Earl. King Of Queens, despite my criticisms, is a pretty funny show. The Office is a brilliant show, one of the best on TV in my opinion, and Scrubs is great but an acquired taste.

2 & a Half Men is pretty lousy, though.

Not that you needed my opinion on those shows, but now you have it.

I will say this: to me, if a current show has a laugh track, it's hackneyed. Scrubs, Earl, The Office are all great shows without any of the canned bullshit that you get from nearly all CBS comedies.

Use Torrents. I just got into the office over winter break...I watched the first 2 seasons on DVD, but wanted to catch up....so I downloaded all the third season ep's via a torrent site, burned them on DVD, put them in a Divx-compatible player, and got caught up in just a few days.

For the office, I found that Mininova.org is the best place to find episodes more than a few weeks old.

I've used Torrentspy a lot for Scrubs that I forget to Tivo.

thepiratebay.org is another large one, but I haven't had much success w/it.

Scrubs is one of my favorite sitcoms of all time. I love that show. Unfortunately, I didnt ever watch it until 6 months or so ago... so the wife and I don't watch any of the new episodes and watch them a season at a time when they come out on DVD.


I enjoyed Roseanne, but it was in spite of Roseanne Barr. I love John Goodman, may he rest in peace.
