I have seen many sitcom's snd i am easily amused but there is no other sitcom that makes me laugh more than Rosanne. It's the trashy version of The Cosby Show.
What's your favorite?

Roseanne was good up until the final season. And, even that wasn't BAD.. It was the ending that I think made everyone feel like it was a screw-job.

Little known series I always liked.. Spin off of Growing Pains that only lasted about 2 seasons. "Just the Ten of Us".. Took Coach Lubbock from GP and gave him his own series. Him, his wife, son and 7 daughters went to an all-boys school.

Growing Pains was one of my favorites as well.

I thought that the most intelligently written and best acted sit com of the '80's was "Family Ties." It began as a show with the primary focus on the parents, but when they recognized what an incredible talent that they had on hand with Michael J. Fox, they intelligently shifted the spotlight to him.

I did not watch the "Cosby Show" because while I had been a fan of Cosby in the '60's and '70's, by the '80's he had evolved into a ridiculously self important jerk. He would go on talk shows and spend his entire segment talking about how dare some mere critic offer any negative comments about him. He was BILL COSBY and who was this sparrow fart little writer to have the temerity to question BILL COSBY and so forth. It was disgusting egoism and it soured me on the guy to the degree that I wished to avoid him in anything.

Roseanne, hands down.

I enjoy the little mini-marathons on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Never get tired of it.

Nothing really compares to Seinfeld, and it still holds up.

One of the true greats started in the 70's and ended in the 80's. WKRP in Cincinnati. Some of the funniest stuff on television, especially the Thanksgiving episode.

I definitely loved Just the 10 of Us as kid. I actually enjoyed TGIF in general as a child. Remember Perfect Strangers with Larry and Balky? It was the show Harriet Winslow was on before they made the spin-off Family Matters.

Speaking of which I liked Family Matters as a child but its not nearly as funny to me now. Urkel was just too over the top eventually.

I would have to say my favorite from that era was the A Different World (the cosby show spinoff). I still watch that show today.

I hadn't thought about Perfect Strangers in years-I loved that show! Roseanne was best in its early seasons. The Middle nowadays kind of reminds me of how good Roseanne was early on, except I think The Middle is even better written.
