The "A's" Have It

Well, I'd like to thank all the folks who sent me questions... Both of you.
Nice to be loved.

Anyway, here is what you were dying to know:

M asks, "What is your favorite tv show and why?"

Wow, that one is kind of a toughie. With all the different genres out there it's hard to call a clear favorite, not to mention shows that are no more. I'll break it down this way:

Current comedy: How I Met Your Mother - CBS
Why: It's a good mix of characters, subtle humor, and plausible situations.
Basicly, every show provides at least one "knowing smile", at least one "rueful chuckle" and at least one "spit out your soda belly laugh."
Last but not least it's not your typical "couple sitcom" about fat and/or stupid men and the beautiful women who put up with them.

Runner up: Big Bang Theory - CBS
Why: Most of the same reasons, but too stereotyping. The nerds are just too nerdy.

Current Drama: NCIS - CBS
Why: I like the whole CSI crime genre and this has it without being too CSI-y. The CSI series have gotten too glam for my tastes. NCIS has a good mix of crime fighting, action, and science plus once again a good mix of characters... The tough guy, the egomaniac, the computer geek, the scientists. I've recently started netflixing this show from the beginning to see missed episodes.

Runner up: Numbers - CBS
Why: Same reasons as NCIS, just not as much of them.

Current Sci-Fi: None
I dont have cable, and what is the deal with all the vampire cop shows? It's been done. Remember Forever Knight?

Current Animation: The Simpsons - FOX
Why: If I have to explain, you wouldn't understand. They do seem to be running out of Ideas though.

Runner up: Family Guy - FOX
Like the Simpsons only more cras... And like the Simpsons they seem to be running out of ideas too.

As far as past shows go Farscape - SCIFI stands above the rest in my memory. The pop culture references, the action and the muppets made it great.

Hmmm. Not to hog the attention, but what do you think is the most influential firearm on history?
