    I missed some:
    Top 3 are comedy-drama's
    Monk (I don't know how I could've forgotten Monk!)
    Royal Pains
    In Plain Sight
    (Mary McCormack, Fred Weller)
    *Limitless (Series, from the movie)
    The Grinder (Comedy/Rob Lowe, Fred Savave)
    *Reverie
    *Forever

    Dead To Me (Christine Applegate, Linda Cardelinn, James Marsden -Black comedy, as in the theme of dark situations being portrayed w/a comedic bent, not the actors; had to explain that to someone. :shrug::laugh:)
    & I've finally gotten on the Curb Your Enthusiasm parade float! Though, IDK that would extend to the series from the start, as I began w/most recent, Season 10's initial-run broadcast & am now viewing Season 8. I've read customer reviews that seem to have pretty different opinions of the more recent seasons from the earlier ones.
    *Sci-fi, not of the spaceship/travel in space variety.

    Always wondered what Oscar winner Javier Bardem thought of the homage. Funny I seen Benidorm holiday episode first, then when I seen the Coen brothers film .. the character clicked... lol :D

    Curb Your Enthusiasm
    House of Cards (first 2 seasons)
    Six Feet Under
    The Handmaid's Tale (first two seasons)
    Downton Abbey (first three seasons)
    Sense8 (first season)

    Schitt'$ Creek was kinda funny.
     
  25. That show completely is not funny to me and I like funny. I don't get all the acclaim for it. The dialogue has no momentum, the characters are annoying and not like good annoying like Seinfeld. What am I missing?

    Shows I liked:
    Mad Men - great writing, great acting but a lot of then unknowns
    The Flight of Conchords - just hilarious and very talented guys
    Modern Family - hilarious
    The Office -both versions
    Breaking Bad - I have only seen a handful, but Bryan Cranston is a very good actor
