Could a poor boy from Zimbabwe with no knowledge of television have a better draft than Sydney? My god, outside of Seinfeld (a gift at #3) and possibly Sports Night each pick was ghastly. Reno 911? What? Even King of the Hill or Beevis and Butthead is funnier than that. I cant explain the RAGE i am feeling. Can you possibly understand this robot commentator?

Yeah, that's pretty much along the lines of what we were all saying to Sydney DURING the draft. Poor Sydney.

"There's nothing scarier... than a clown" -Draft selection 8.1

Alright..."Arrested Development" is a good show, but a total reach (too new) in the first round when shows like "Cheers" and "MASH" are still on the board. "Get Smart" is an inspired 4th round choice, and "Futurama" is a steal in the 7th...but someone tell Bryan that "Quantum Leap," although often unintentionally funny, is not a sitcom. Also, where's "South Park" in this draft? One of the consistently funniest shows over the last 3 or 4 years -- snubbed. Definately more worthy of a pick than "Full House."

I hate to admit it Broo, but you are right about Quantum Leap. But man was that show awesome. Anyway, my response to what you've pointed out is "Hey, Chris allowed it," so I hope it doesn't hurt my grade. From the looks of this leaderboard, I feel like Chris, circa 2002. ZING!

I'm sorry. What? I admit I was dubious about the legitimacy of animated series to begin with, but the fact that "South Park" didn't seem to occur to any of us in the draft should be telling.

One must keep in mind, Mr. Broo, a concept I'm sure you are familiar with. When you draft something, OTHER PEOPLE CAN NO LONGER SELECT IT. Finding myself in a group of people committed to quoting every line of AD ever aired, I felt it necessary to choose the show so as to avoid its selection by others. "The Cosby Show" was higher on my draft board.

Strategy, Brooski. Strategy.

Also, the word is definitely.

Hey, unless a red squiggly line pops up under something I type, I just roll with it.

You're probably headed for a Miers-esque undressing if you ever get nominated to the bench, then. Don't say I didn't warn you.

I did extensive research on Quantum Leap and decided that if Bryan wanted to flush a pick down the toilet, it was OK by me.

Just in case it wasn’t abundantly clear, the career path for a University of Toledo College of Law grad generally doesn’t steer one towards holding a federal appointment for anything other than a minute of your congressman’s time at a fundraiser – after you’re done bussing the tables. And as far as Quantum Leap goes, how can you not be a Scott Bakula fan after “Necessary Roughness”

Here Here about necessary roughness. Kathy Ireland, phenomenal. Also Jason Bateman. Anyone does anyone think Sydney made a mockery of the whole drafting movement with her thoughtless, uterrly rediculous selections?

In my defense, I don't think these are good shows. The sitcom genre embraces all kinds of shows from the truly witty to the kitschy and borderline stupid. Those of you who are ignoring the oft-troubled past of the sitcom are diluting yourselves. DILUTING!!!

Blogger Inexplicably Mean Commenter said...

So your argument is:
Most sitcoms are horrible.
In a draft to choose the best sitcoms in the history of television i (red b) choose to select bad shows to embrace the awfulness of the genre?

i.e. Saved by the Bell over M*A*S*H, Cheers, etc.

"Deluding"?

Blogger Red Baroness said...

Ah, I suppose I did mean deluding (Sarah). And yes, scariest commenter of all time (that picture is really scary, you know), that is my argument. Everyone should have a little cheese in their draft. Might I also mention that theme songs played a large role in my selections. In conclusion, Saved By The Bell is a truly wonderful show and I am prepared to defend it to the death (and by death I mean really bad grade in this draft).

And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew.
You would see the biggest gift would be from me, and the card attached would say "Thank you for being a friend."

"Golden Girls" cannot possibly qualify as a sitcom. These shows are supposed to involve situations which are, in some way, funny, amusing, or (in other words) relate to comedy.

The premise of "Golden Girls" is that three old women are stuck in a Florida condo, waiting to die. While thus abandoned to periodic watch-checking, they are subjected to the muddle-headed political rantings of Bea Arthur. Ms. Arthur, you may recall, worked the docks before her operation.

What about this "situation" involves "comedy?"

Actually, the premise of "Golden Girls" is that FOUR old women are stuck in a Florida condo, waiting to die.

What about Threes Company, a tribute to the late John Ritter of Problem Child and a cameo on Buffy fame? Also better TGIF shows: Urkel, Step by Step,

I'm as happy as can be that finding this comment-riddled web log (or "blog") has been successful for me. I'm confessing that I have been following "Inexplicably Average Commenter" from place to place, hoping for her to notice me. I've been spending a LOT of time listening to The Flaming Lips recently. A secret message from IMC is hidden in the lyrics of Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell, but then you already knew that.

In fact (AT NO COST TO YOU!) despite the nasty masky, the real identity of IMC has by me been discovered!! He has his own blog (or "web log") right HERE.

Can we all give Bryan a round of applause. He nabbed The Simpsons, M*A*S*H and Cheers in the first three rounds. I mean those are three of the best shows of all time, albeit no Saved by the Bell, but he tried. Has anyone ever drafted so well?
