So we’ve seen my top five books. We’ve seen my top five movies. Now let’s make another list that no one cares about by looking at my top five TV shows!
Quick note: #1 and #2 are light years ahead of the others.
Let’s do it.
When Nate and I first moved in together, we decided to write down the names of TV shows we wanted to watch on little pieces of paper, fold the papers up, and put them in a jar with the idea of randomly selecting one of the shows to watch all the way through whenever we had the time to watch TV (which, very quickly, ended up being the baseball off-season months). One of the first (or first?) shows we picked out of the jar was Community. Neither one of us had seen it or really knew anything about it, but we’d both heard good things about it. And it turns out that it was one of the funniest, best shows we’ve both ever seen. It was very unexpectedly hilarious. We also got my mom into it, so there’s that.
The Dean is the absolute best part of this show, but Chang is fantastic as well.
I have not met a single person who said that they didn’t like Futurama. Hell, even Rob – who hated everything else under the sun – liked Futurama. Like…what can even be said about Futurama?
#3: Ed, Edd, n’ Eddy
This was such a weird, colorful cartoon. I watched a lot of it at my dad’s house on the weekends, so a big part of the reason it’s on this list is because of nostalgia. But it’s also just a great cartoon.
Anyone who knows me knows I love Metalocalypse. It’s a show that seems completely not my style, but I jive with it. It’s got ridiculous humor. Sean and I used to quote it all the time.
#1: Chicago Hope
So who’s surprised that Metalocalypse is not my #1? Yeah, me too. But here’s the thing. YesTV, for whatever reason, has been showing Chicago Hope every day at 4 PM, which means that I was able to watch it on my off day during the semester (when classes were still in person) and able to watch it every day once we moved to online learning. I had forgotten just how much I loved this show. I saw it first while I was still in high school. It was on the Discovery Health Channel and I always watched it when I came home from school. I hadn’t really gotten to see it (except for a few scattered episodes that are on YouTube), but now that I’ve been able to watch it again, yay, I love it.
