Three's A Crowd wasn't that strong, neither was SBTB in my opinion

Cool

Personally I wouldn't have put Aftermash on the list. Sure it pales in comparison to the show it spun off from but looked at on its own it's really not a bad show. I enjoy period pieces and Aftermash took place in the 50's shortly after the end of the Korean War. The story telling was very good on this show. And they also were accurate to the time period in terms of costumes and props and set decoration. Personally I found the show very watchable.

About the Brady Brides, Sherwood and Lloyd Schwartz never intended this to be a series. It was supposed to be a 2 hour movie. But NBC was desperate for programming and asked that the movie be re-edited into four 30 minute episodes so they could fill a time slot for four consecutive weeks. Paramount would only agree to that if NBC would commit to ordering six additional 30 minute episodes and turning the Brady Brides into a series.

Phyllis, TAC, and Trial by Jury shouldn't be on that list. Call me crazy but I actually liked Joanie Loves Chachi and watched it every week. lol

I thought The Lone Gunmen had potential and really hated when the
producers killed off the characters later on The X-Files.

'The Brady Bunch Variety Hour' and 'The Bradys' were a lot worse than 'The Brady Brides'.

Also, where's 'The Hee Haw Honeys' and 'Gomer Pyle'????

I think it was just time for the Saved by the Bell to end. The couple chemistry on The Brady Brides and Three's a Crowd wasn't very good.

Kind of surprised "The Colbys" wasn't listed.

"Phyllis" was funny, not as good at MTM but has no business on this list, IMO.

I'll go even further than Marvo,and say AfterMash is a very good show.Yes it's not as good as MASH,however it still is an entertaining show.And it's also quite different than MASH in a number of ways,so even if someone never really liked like MASH,they may still enjoy AfterMASH.---If they still made tv shows even 1/2 as good as AfterMash,modern tv would not be the un-viewable mess it is now.

I agree. It had a lot of potential and a great cast.
