I don’t think I’ve seen any complete episodes at all since like 2014 or so.

You haven’t even watched older episodes since 2014.

God , I can’t stand Family Guy! One of the most unfunny things I’ve ever seen on telly (that includes everything Seth MacFarlane touches), and it is possibly only beaten by The Big Bang Theory for my least favourite show on telly at the minute.

I wouldn’t say that, there’s shows like Sesame Street and Barney that are 196,219,631,964,196,519,661,967,196,819,691,970 times worse than Family Guy and The Big Bang Theory combined and Elmo is the worst singer of all time, just listening to him makes me want to blast Tonight’s The Night by Rod Stewart.  

I meant complete NEW episodes! Up until 2014 or so I’d always hate-watch a few new episodes per season, just to confirm how terrible I thought it had become. But if I’m sitting around at 10pm and want to watch a little TV and find that there’s an old Simpsons episode in syndication, I’ll check it out in hopes that it’s a really old one…only to be disappointed 90% of the time because those ones never seem to show up on tv any more since the bad ones outnumber the good ones by a 4-1 ratio (and growing!) 

As for what the unspeakable Elmo has done to the once-glorious Sesame Street…no comment.

As for ENJOYBLE TV, I still like “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” and “Better Call Saul”. And I was happy to discover last night that “Bojack Horseman” is available online, and that’s one I’ve wanted to check out for awhile. First three episodes I watched were all good-to great, and apparently it improves in subsequent seasons, so it could conceivably become a favourite. 

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I’m aware of how a lot of people hate it, but I can watch it for hours laughing non-stop. I’m not a fan of MacFarlane’s films, but Family Guy is his comedic playground where he can make fun of anything and everybody, and I think Peter Griffin’s stupidity is absolutely hilarious. I’ve seen every episode.

My favorite comedy shows have to be The Office and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Brian Bumgardner (Kevin) and Ed Helms (Andy) from the office both are alumni from the same high school I attended. Currently, I am into the HBO shows like Game Of Thrones and Silicon Valley.

Also @Dark Overlord hates Sesame Street because of how bad Elmo is at singing, and I love the Muppets for how great Kermit is when he sings. The Rainbow Connection is an amazing song.

I don’t hate Sesame Street because Elmo sucks at singing, i hate everything about . Elmo’s singing in Sesame Street is like if they did a Star Wars Holiday Special Special Edition, it’s just making something that already sucks even worse.

I don’t really like Kermit’s voice either, the only TV characters who i think have a decent singing voice are Homer Simpson and The Beatles, i like how their voices sound. But then again, i don’t watch TV shows to hear the characters sing. If i wanted to listen to music, i’d put on some good music, like The Beatles or The Beach Boys .

The Muppets when not in films are brilliant. Family Guy has some very good episodes and individual moments but so much if it is awful. The first two seasons and anything after about season 8 are not worth spending time on.

Most comedies after a few seasons begin to get repetitive and lose their gleam, in truth, it’s quite an achievement The Simpsons got to season 9 before entering into death.

Since we’re on the topic, another show that i like is Robot Chicken, nothing quite like the adult parodies of little kids things.

They should’ve retired Kermit in 1990.

OG Sesame Street was full of wonderful little absurdist cartoons, psychedelic alphanumeric lessons with great songs and genuinely funny vaudevillian Muppet (and human) sketches. Bert and Ernie were a scream! 

There’s a reason why John Lennon and so many others became huge fans in 1970.

I used to watch Robot Chicken for awhile…ultimately it’s  mean-spirited streak really began to annoy me (so much vomiting and decapitation in every episode!) and there were too many references I didn’t get (I don’t know shit about superhero movies or videogames or stuff like that) but I did appreciate the effort it took to create all that claymation – nice change from regular animation, either traditional or CG. And the occasional mashup they did was particularly clever, like the combination of the Smurfs with Se7en, for example.

Honestly, Sesame Street isn’t even bad. I would rather watch a six hour marathon of Sesame Street than have to sit through one episode of Monster High or Sophia the First. 

I don’t watch tv now since we haven’t had cable all year. I never really liked watching tv all that much, anyways, but I do miss being able to come home after a long day and turn on QVC. It saddens me to think about how I’m gonna miss out on all the great sales during “Christmas in July” this summer. ):

Not to me, i can’t stand it, although to be fair, i stopped watching stuff like Elmo and Disney movies when i was 6, so maybe i grew out of that stuff faster than other kids.

I don’t think six is early to stop watching Sesame Street. I think I was five. The only reason I’ve watched that and other kid shows recently is that I have a baby sister.

Sesame Street isn’t shown on the English-stations in Ireland, it is on the Irish one. 

 

I have a few mates who do the voices on it, it’s a nice little thing to have on in the background.

Do you feel the same way about Disney movies and stuff like that.

Here’s a few;

The A-Team. (One of the greatest action shows ever made. Kind of lost its charm after they started working for ‘whatever-the-guy’s-name-is’ in the later seasons.)

The Rockford Files. (I love James Garner as Rockford, it’s really a brilliant role.)

The Andy Griffith Show. (Don Knotts was the funniest man ever, hands down.)

21 Jumpstreet. (Johnny Depp is so young in this show. )

The Monkees. (My favourite.)

Then here’s a few ones that I watched out of boredom;

Knight Rider (dumbest show ever.)

The Greatest American Hero. (Second dumbest show ever.)

Sherlock. (Blah, the actor who plays Holmes is so bland.)

That’s all I can think of.

If you mean classic animated things like “Dumbo” and “Pinocchio”, then I think those things are well worth watching for all ages! We’re talking about timeless works of art here. Anyways, Pixar and those folks always make sure to make their modern day animated features entertaining for adults as well as the kiddies, so they can more easily rake in hundred$ of million$.

I was more thinking movies like Toy Story and The Little Mermaid.

I agree with Von that Disney movies are made for all ages (bar the Disney Channel originals). Yes, Disney movies are made to be kid-friendly, but they’re also made to be enjoyable for people of all ages. The Toy Story movies are my all-time favorite movies, and if anything, I think I enjoy them more now than I did when I was a little kid. The Little Mermaid isn’t as good (but neither is any other movie), but it does have a really great soundtrack. Part of Your World and Under the Sea will forever be two of my fave songs. You play either of those songs in the car and, if you surround yourself with the right kind of people, everybody will sing along. It doesn’t matter if they’re two or they’re forty.

Seasons 2 and 3 are brilliant. 4 had too many cameos from famous people to catch viewers and 5, where they worked for Stockwell, was dreadful. Frankie was a desperately unlikeable character (think Hoochie in ‘Itchy and Stratchy’) and, worst of all, they moderised the theme tune and turned it from one of the greatest theme tunes ever (first video below) to an insult on your ears (second video).

OMG Paul (McCartney!) provides the voice for himself in one episode! (the show’s animated) He’s supposed to pop out of a cake for a party but never gets the chance and just complains to himself instead.
