One-liners that make us laugh every time we re-watch our favorite TV programs.
Television is a big part of society. Our parents, our parent’s parents, and for some of us our parent’s parent’s parents, have tuned in to watch the news, games, shows, dramas and my personal favorite, the comedy.
Television comedies take many forms. There is sketch comedy, like Saturday Night Live or The Carrol Burnett Show, where they think of funny ideas and play them in vignettes, where there is no through story line from episode to episode, season to season.
There is also the comedy-drama or “dramedy” as it is sometimes nicknamed. The dramedy follows a format more like things are in real life. The story is driving to a dramatic finish, but sometimes funny things will happen as they do in day to day life. Think one of the most famous of these… F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
But my personal favorite is the sitcom. Everyone loves a good sitcom. Sitcom (short for situational comedy, if you didn’t already know), are shows where first they develop the characters and their relationships, and those characters get themselves in and out of zany predicaments week in and week out. Sometimes its centered around a family, or a group of friends, or a workplace. Sometimes its centered around a place that strangers come to and find commonality and understanding.
