MONDAYS ARE NO LONGER MUNDANE!!! :)
That's as much as we can do to keep you entertained. Our club meets only once a week, and that's our mandate. We have had a long session on 'Networking' yesterday, and that finished our quota of entertainment-to-be-provided under the name of 'Eloquence' for the last week. Now if you, fella tuchchas, are getting bored of your vacations with little to do at home, and you, exchange junta, are still lamenting on how many more countries you could have covered on your trip, please excuse us. We have work to do.
But well, we aren't as bad as you think. We'll do our bit in helping you pass time for the coming week. So, presenting a list of the top 10 sitcoms (our ranking..:)) that will surely keep you glued to your laptop:
(While you are scrolling down, you might wanna guess which sitcom tops our list)
Number 10. Eastbound and Down
An 8.2 on IMDB, it describes the story of a burned-out major league ballplayer, who years after he turned his back on his hometown, returns to teach physics at his old middle school.
Number 9. The Office
An 8.7 on IMDB, this series is a mockumentary on a group of typical office workers, where the workday consists of ego clashes, inappropriate behavior, and tedium.
Number 8. Modern Family
An 8.6 on IMDB, this describes three different, but related families facing trials and tribulations in their own uniquely comedic ways,
Number 7. Two and a Half men
A 7.2 on IMDB. A hedonistic jingle writer's free-wheeling life comes to an abrupt halt when his brother and 10-year-old nephew move into his beach-front house.
Number 6. F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (Yes, sadly, it is number 6 :P )
An 8.9 on IMDB, it describes the lives, loves, and laughs of six young friends living in Manhattan.
Number 5. Curb your enthusiasm
An 8.7 on IMDB. He's got it all: a loving wife, good friends, a successful career, a great home...Find out what could possibly go wrong for Larry David...
Number 4. Arrested Development
A 9.1 on IMDB, it describes the tale of a level-headed son Michael Bluth who takes over family affairs after his father is imprisoned. But the rest of his spoiled, dysfunctional family are making his job unbearable.
Number 3. Extras
Andy Millman is an actor with ambition and a script. Reduced to working as an extra with a useless agent, Andy's attempts to boost his career invariably end in failure and embarrassment. An 8.4 on IMDB.
Number 2. The Big Bang Theory
A woman who moves into an apartment across the hall from two brilliant but socially awkward physicists shows them how little they know about life outside of the laboratory.
And lo and behold... and you could not have guessed it right...
Number 1. The Simpsons
An 8.9 on IMDB, it describes the satiric adventures of a working-class family in the misfit city of Springfield.
Back in 1992, when President George H.W. Bush was running for re-election, he used the show's characters as an example of a dysfunctional household with poor values. He told voters he wanted "to make American families a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons."
It's rare that a cartoon evokes such passionate responses from a world leader, but The Simpsons is no ordinary cartoon. The show is notorious for making a mockery of all that is sacred. No one and nothing is off limits to the family, including Fox, the network that pays the show's bills — and even 20/20's Barbara Walters, who's been parodied along with her View co-hosts.
Though criticism has followed the show's outrageous irreverence — allegations from corrupting America's youth to even causing the decline of Western civilization — the show is a hit. Time magazine called it the best TV show of the 20th century. Loyal fans have a seemingly unquenchable thirst for anything Simpsonian, annually spending millions on collectibles.
So, fellas, start calling up your Sitcom sources, now that you know what to ask for :P
Till the next session then!
