I'm kind of that way with The Facts of Life now. I've been watching the series from start to finish. I'm currently on Season 3 and aside from a few episodes here and there, I can't say that it's one of my favorite TV shows. It never really was to begin with actually, but I don't like it as much now as I did then.

My pick would be Perry Mason, remember seeing it and liking in when it was in reruns in the late 60's, but seeing it on ME TV now, wow it is so formula driven (check the watch, time for Tragg to show up, check the watch, time for the real killer to confess). I understand why it was like this, first season a mindboggling 39 hourlong episodes, 5 out of the next 8, 30 episodes. but still it is so paint by the numbers.

agree with facts of life. watched when nick & nite got it in 2001. but when i can i will catch a rerun here and there.

night court- i've been watching for awhile back when a & e got the repeats it didn't live up to the hype. one ofmy faves used to be when they thought dan was dead. but love love day court because everyone expect christine has a different side to them

alf- wanted to see it caught on hub. i just don't get it but it doesn't stop me from watching.

I HATED the way Slater kept calling Zach "Preppy"! I saw a few episodes back in the day but you couldn't PAY me to watch that today!

Some people kept raving about Seinfeld but I find it AWFUL & not funny at all. Friends is another show that a lot of people used to find funny which is a DISASTER.

Friends is the most overrated sitcom from the 90s. The only good part of it is the theme song.

I don't even like that. You want the best theme songs for TV shows?

Try Charlie's Angels, Love Boat, Gilligan's Island, The Jeffersons, & Too Close For Comfort.

For non-sitcoms look at MacGyver & Dallas. Dallas may be the greatest TV theme song ever! Or at least the coolest/most glamorous.

I agree with whoever said Little House on the Prairie. I adored this show growing up and even read some of the books. I thought it was the perfect family friendly and wholesome show.

Looking back, I couldn't believe how sleazy it eventually became (relying on shock value) and how badly it ruined characters (Albert), contradicted its own uplifting messages after awhile and repeated the same scenarios over and over again. I also noticed how vain Michael Landon was with his Bee Gees disco hair, and now feel as if Victor French would've been better as Pa. And Nancy Oleson was an abomination, literally a sociopath (she deliberately tried killing a classmate), but we were supposed to think she was cute and funny.

I loathed that show as soon as I noticed it took place in NYC and there wasn't one person of color in the background. Keep in mind that it wasn't about wanting diversity for diversity's sake (The Drew Carey Show is the whitest show on TV yet I love it to death). It was just the audacity of having a show take place in NYC and whitewashing the hell out of it. NYC is literally one of the most diverse places in the world, so that was inexcusable.

And then there were the other issues, too, of these young college graduates being able to afford this gigantic loft in NYC. C'mon.

As for the theme song, I couldn't stand it because it was an obvious rip off of The Monkees. It doesn't rip off an exact song (the closest maybe being "Pleasant Valley Sunday") but it has their signature sound.

And that song was popular before it became the theme song! Now whenever I hear it I automatically think of Friends. Ugh... I still like the song, though.
