Out of all the sitcoms created by stand-up comics (i.e. Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond) Roseanne stands out as a sincere blend of drama and comedy. These white-trash rednecks are conscious of their social status and are completely uninhibited in their actions. 
Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman both create memorable and hysterical characters but it's Roseanne who shows a surprising range with her thick layer of sarcasm and tender heart.
Personally, I've always had a crush on Sara Gilbert (Darlene); I love a girl with some bone-dry humor.

This show was amazing. I never saw it when it aired, but a friend had the first (and only) season on DVD so I watched it. The acting is good, the stories and scripting are good, and the feel of it is just fantastic.

It's a science fiction show, but it has a very western feel to it. Spaceships and shotguns, pistols and planetary governments, holograms and ho-downs. The clash of the two genres makes it seem very naturalistic. Several things executive producer Joseph Whedon did to further this includes scenes in space where there is no sound- many sci-fi's have sound in space for dramatic effect- or music, unique cinematography, as well as focusing in on the small stories of individual lives.

The characters are the slightly dysfunctional space cowboy crew of Serenity, a Firefly-class ship that primarily runs smuggled goods with the occasional legitimate cargo. I came to love each and every character as they all had their flaws as well as their strengths.

FOX cut it before airing the entire first season, but many fans claim it is due to the fact that they did not air the pilot episode or the rest of the episodes in the correct order. However, ratings and reviews got better as the season went on and it has now attracted a respectable cult following.

I definitely say you should go purchase this show and watch it. I was so sad when I finished the last episode.

4/5

W.T.F.???

Seriously? I just finished an episode of America's Next Top Model and saw the opening credits for this show....

I changed the channel, didn't watch the show...and yet I am going to give it a bad rating.

This show has marathons more than any other show in the history of all shows. It's tremendously addictive for any female between the ages of 13 and 23. At 19, I am at the prime age of addiction. I really like the hair, make-up and creative aspects of the photo shoots. I love the pictures at the end. Otherwise, the commentary from the girls starts to sound the same after a few seasons and isn't so interesting. Tyra, the host, has a crazy personality and her co-judges are dramatically gay. And then there is Nigel Barker...he's really nice to look at.

The show's popularity is tremendous. Produced by Simon Cowell, the show increases in votes every year. Also, American Idol is now giving back and giving to charity. It's good to support the show. And...as much as I didn't think people would actually be successful, most of our new superstars are coming from the show. Personally, it isn't that exciting for me anymore, but I like to watch the auditions, the "give back" performances, and the latter episodes if I have time.

3.5/5 STARS

 
 

Best writing for quite some time. The Bluth family is dysfunctional and all living under the same roof.
The cast includes Micheal Cera (Superbad) and Jason Bateman (Hancock). The series didn't have a buzz when on the air and only lasted three seasons, but it is creating a buzz now and many hope for a comeback, including myself. There are rumors of a movie.

Family Guy is an American favorite. I watch it whenever it's on. The Griffin family is dysfunctional and hilarious. Once you get to know the characters, it's smooth sailing from there. I rarely will give 5 stars...
