There is Seinfeld, and there is everything else.

I also thought Frasier was very underrated, or at least as underrated as a popular, long running sitcom can be.

I really liked Cheers, and it had a great cast and writing, but it pales in comparison to the brilliance of what the Seinfeld folks did. Cheers was always about comedy, and while brilliantly executed, always played it straight. It never tried for, much less achieved the satirical, philosophical, and disgustingly accurate look at human nature the way Seinfeld did.

While I agree Cheers never attempted to be satirical, I disagree that it wasn't an accurate reflection of society. The bar where everybody knew your name featured people of all walks of life coming and going. Each main character represented different socio-economic backgrounds, from working-class stiffs, to academia, and all others in between. I like how the characters didn't have to be overly crazy or hypersensative to mundane things, which of course is what made Seinfeld so hilarious.

I wasn't knocking it. Great show. Still enjoy the re-runs. But Seinfeld was just special in that it went beyond what Cheers admittedly did well.

Of course niether of these shows can hold a candle to the classicly hilarious "Mad About You" or "The Single Guy".

True. While a bit hokey, I still laugh at the antics and dialogue in I Love Lucy. Ethal and Fred make the show, imo though.

3s Co, Happy Days, Seinfeld, Family Ties, Cheers whenever given the chance. SBTB to be sure, but I tastefully discriminate between the Old Class and the New Class. I'm easy to please. Seinfeld has given me at least a few more of those Henry Hill laughs than the rest.

If anyone has managed to figure out MASH yet, clue me in.

Nope, still trying. Of course I wasn't old enough to experience it the first time, so that explains most of it. I've always wondered why the last episode was so gargantuenly watched.

Mash was a brilliant anti vietnam war satire disguised as a korean war comedy

It was Seinfeld until I watched all 7 seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm and realized that EVERY character on that show is Larry David.
