Recently, on the twitters, there was a discussion about The Big Bang Theory. Specifically, someone noticed that some of his Facebook friends had “liked” The Big Bang Theory and noted that none of these Facebook friends were among those that he considered to be funny.
Our own Trumwill pointed out that, hey, the first two, maybe three, seasons were pretty good and it wasn’t surprising that it tapered off into mediocrity because most shows taper off into mediocrity after 100 episodes or so.
Which leads us to the question:
Well, which shows did *NOT* turn into a mélange of meh after, oh, 100 shows? (I was going to say “five seasons” but England has this thing where a “season” means “3, maybe 6, episodes” and that seemed like a real apples and oranges kind of comparison.)
Some shows that were brought up were M*A*S*H, Stargate, and Frasier but, surely, there are a ton of others out there.
I mean, if my bud was going to go in for some kind of surgery that involved the doctors telling him “and after this, you’re going to need to spend 3 weeks in bed watching television”, what would be the ultimate bingewatch for a show that maintained high quality well into 100+ episodes?
Note: Saying “The Simpsons” is cheating.
So… whad’ya got?
