    I don't consider Arrested Development terrible, but I wouldn't put it in my top comedy list. I'd take Sanford and Son and Seinfeld over it, along with quite a few other shows.

      YOU'RE TERRIBLE!!!

      :( I ******* love Arrested Development. I have seen every episode countless amounts of times and every time I still find the show hilarious. So many great bits but off the top of my head how can any show top a black hand puppet named Franklin who raps about racial inequalities or Tobias and his cat like reflexes. Arrested Development in my eyes is as near to perfect as a television comedy can be. Both it and Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia I find consistently hilarious and both shows are so good that even really funny episodes get scrutinized for not being funny enough.

      • It's a billion times better than Seinfeld as it was always funny and didn't start horribly or end horribly like Seinfeld did. Plus, Seinfeld at its funniest never was nearly as funny nor did it feature even remotely close to the writing or acting that AD had.

        AD is light years ahead of Seinfeld. Hell, so is Curb Your Enthusiasm.

          I really enjoy Seinfeld but I agree that Curb is better and funnier. Larry David is a really ******* funny guy.

          • Arrested Development is a top 3 sitcom for me as well. **** I love that show. GOB is one of the funniest characters in TV history, and some of the guest appearances from big name stars are hilarious.

                Growing up, I loved Full House and Family Matter. Now I can't even stand to watch a minute of either.

                Once cancelled show that I find pretty funny is Everybody Hates Chris. Nothing spectacular, but good for an occasional cheap laugh when nothing new is on.

                  Now if you said CYE was the best tv comedy of all time, then I'd have to agree with you. Larry David is the man. The situations he gets in are hysterically awkward.

                    In no order.

                    Veronica Mars

                    Freaks and Geeks

                    Undeclared

                    Clerks: The Animated Series

                    Dirty Sexy Money (I blame the writers strike)

                    The Black Donnellys (could have been a great show given time)

                    I am sure I am missing some.

                    EDIT: Best ******* one of them all, Arrested Development.

                        • I'll add Newsradio with Phil Hartman to the list. I loved that show. Phil Hartman was brilliant.

                          • Twin Peaks goddammit. The series finale has so many goddamn cliffhangers that it makes me want to punch a baby because of the lack of resolution.

                              He goes up as one of the very sad stories. He wasn't a druggie or anything. Just was in an unfortunate relationship with a druggie *****.

                              He was underrated for all his talents.

                              • Bringing up Hartman makes me really sad and I don't appreciate that.
