Monty Python's Flying Circus - TV Shows
Monty Python's Flying Circus premiered to a bewildered British public on October 5th, 1969. It would, though, become one of the most influential shows in television history. From Saturday Night Live to Kids in the Hall to South Park, the offshoots of Python are numerous. While the show wasn't on for very long, it made made a tremendous impact in the world of television, film, and music. It took snappy British humor, surreal animation, and general goofiness and combined it into a an awe inspiring sketch comedy show that still has viewers young and old roaring with laughter 42 years after its premiere. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on May 9, 2011, 11:29 pm

Chicago - Music Groups
Chicago Transit Authority started off as a ground breaking, boarder line experimental, jazz fusion band, with a sound that was powerful, funky, yet tight as a knot. Then Terry Kath shot himself and the band became a top 40 machine that sold out and churned out sappy power ballads. Sad, really; but sometimes one person does make that much of a difference. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on May 9, 2011, 11:13 pm

M*A*S*H - TV Shows
You know what's funny about the M*A*S*H franchise? Every incarnation gets progressively worse. The novel is an under rated classic that will make you laugh like an idiot. The 1970, while a dark comedy classic, didn't have the same vibe the novel had. Still, though, it's a classic that everyone should see at least once. The TV show is a classic example of a show staying past its welcome. What started out as a great ensemble sitcom became Alan Alda's personal soapbox. It really is a shame because, for about 6 or 7 seasons, M*A*S*H was a really great sitcom with a lot of heart. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on May 4, 2011, 3:59 pm

Jeopardy! - TV Shows
Such a simple concept...such a brilliant concept. Thank you Merv Griffin for the greatest game show in the history of television. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on April 29, 2011, 7:26 pm

Family Guy - TV Shows
Family Guy started out as an irreverent, but sweet, send up to television and pop culture as well as a half-way decent sitcom. Seth MacFarlane was taking the work he did with Cartoon Network and made it more adult oriented. Much to many people's dismay, it was canceled after three seasons. Then, Fox made the mistake of bring it back. After about two or three years, MacFarlane seemed to have lost his comedic sensibilities. Jokes ran on way too long and the show became too aware of itself. The characters have gone to their logical conclusions (Peter went from dim witted dad to full on retard, Meg went from generic teenager girl to whipping girl, etc.) and the writers have used the show to push their political agenda. The latter can be excused from time to time, but not when it becomes a weekly occurrence. Family Guy, to me, has been a big disappointment. It had a lot of potential, but it threw it away to pander to the lowest common denominator. I'm equally disappointed with Seth MacFarlane. I know he can do better than this. -- Submitted By: (dcvianc) on April 29, 2011, 6:47 pm
