The Sopranos

it's a bunch of fat guys yelling at each other and they rarely do anything else.  Unlike The Godfather it doesn't feel epic and I don't feel that I am watching great actors and unlike Goodfellas there are not a lot of crimes going on and there isn't a sense of fun.

It seems like each year has the same stereotypes doing the same stupid things other and other again.

AFV
What can be said that hasn't been said,this is the worst show ever on TV.

The Mentalist its nothing but a cheap rip-off of USAnetworks 'Psych' but alot of people seem to regard this show as the second coming.

After some research it looks like it ended at the end of last year so I was incorrect. I figured they'd be starting a new season here shortly, thankfully they are not and I got my Christmas wish early this year.

It's YouTube before it existed....only some of the people in the videos get to make money along with the owners of the venue.  And some of The Brains used to write for it.

Mine is The Bachelor/Bachelorette shows.  One couple out of how many seasons has actually gotten married?  How do they keep suckering the audience into thinking anyone is sincere on these things?

Are those type of shows still on?  I just assumed they died after the second time the couple only got together for the money.

As for AFV it's the same four videos over and over.  Redneck does sothing stupid and gets hurt,baby spits up,some one falls down at a wedding,and a dog does something like bark at a TV.  It's so stupid and yet to certain people it's the second coming and the end all be all of comedy.

The first season was funny but then it jumped the shark when they recast Tom for no reason.

Nope.  Because I understand some people like different things from me.   :)

I always had a burning passionate hate for the show Seinfeld. Also, what is up with Friends? That show is like, not funny at all!

On the former I can't understand where you are coming from,on the latter you are right on the money.  I have seen three episodes and never a joke.

I don't get the popularity of most reality shows.  I mean, okay Survivor I kinda get because at least its a contest, but anything where you just follow around some person or group who is famous for a reason you probably don't remember as they go through their daily routine?  Why?  The only purpose I see in those shows is material for the Soup.
