Would you choose to live in a classic era sitcom world?

In the 1998 movie Pleasantville, Reese Witherspoon's character decides at the end to stay in Pleasantville, saying she'd have a better life in Fifties America than she would in the 1990s real world. She even mentions her grades in the real world means she has no chance of university, unlike the Pleasantville Fifties America.

Would any poster here prefer the world of an old sitcom to live in?

What's the cutoff for "old sitcom"?

Because I want Charles in charge of me!

ETA: JK . If was going to live in an 80s sitcom, Silver Spoons seems like a lot more fun.

TBH, if we were suddenly put back in our childhood selves, we would seem to our parents, teachers, social circle etc to have undergone a SUDDEN and MASSIVE personality change. Also, neither my primary or high school allowed female students to wear the trousers version of the school uniform until years after i had left them so that would s u c k right off the bat.

Wouldn't like to live in Columbo. I'd soon get mighty sick of the trench-coated lackwit always saying "just one more thing" and squinting with his fake eye!

Provided you didn't live in Los Angeles, murder anyone, or especially if you weren't Robert Culp, I don't think you'd ever come to Columbo's attention.

And anyway it's not "his" universe; he shares a reality with several other notable persons including M.E. Quincy and Deputy Marshal McCloud:

Depends on the sitcom and whether I am a lead character.

It all depends on who you are. You're picturing being married to Sam.

What if you were married to Gladys Kravitz?

Yeah, that's kind of a problem with all of them.

And even if you are the star, it's still not all it's cracked up to be. Sure, genies and astronauts sounds good, but then it turns out that a NASA doctor has nothing better to do than bring his wife to your house to snoop around and the genie gets jealous and possessive and sends you to the Napoleonic Era whenever she feels like it.

I did live in that world. Suburbs, stay-at-home-mom, walked to school, restricted to one hour of TV every day, ate dinner every evening in the dining room with my parents, my mother made breakfast for me every day through college graduation. There are some things about it I would gladly go back to.

No, life was not great for everyone, I realize that. Just answering the question.

I did live in one. I was a little older than Beaver, graduating high school in 1956.

I wouldn't have wanted it to be any other way.

Since many old sitcoms gave an idealized, clean, peaceful, unrealistic view of the world, I'm sure that many of them would be a better place to live. (If forced to live in one, I'd probably go with Andy Griffith.)

Good choice. Things aren't too zany there. You can drive up to Raleigh or Mt. Pilot when you want a little excitement.

That's the thing. We know that in reality, the world depicted in those sitcoms didn't exist - the women were frustrated by how limited their options were, African Americans were excluded from almost everything, etc. etc. BUT in the TV sitcom versions, all was well.

Of course I would never want to live in the "real" version of the sitcom world, since we know it was racist, sexist, and ignorant in so many ways. But if the idealized version were really true, and no one was being harmed and everyone was actually happy? At this stage in my life, where I am retired, slightly lazy, and perfectly happy to divide my time between housewifey things and reading, I'd probably love it.

Interesting question. I had a good childhood and can't think of any classic-era sitcoms I'd want to live in, although as a white guy and a lawyer I'd be in pretty good shape in Fifties TV society. Later on, being pals with the characters on Friends, Roseanne, Seinfeld or Frasier might be fun for awhile.

Something similar happens in Ken Grimwood's excellent live-your-life-over-again novel Replay.

Well said, and seconded (except for the "housewifey" part).

Time-traveling with Blackadder could be interesting, or the Red Dwarf spaceship.

Working in an office in Slough or Scranton, not so much.

Depending on what you mean by classic era...

M*A*S*H, no.
Beverly Hillbillies, no.
Gilligan's Island,... no.
I Dream of Jeannie...

Okay, we could be on to something, here.

I've often thought I'd love to live in Mayberry. Or New Rochelle in the early 60s.

My 3 Sons, Beaver, Brady Bunch - they had pretty nice lives IMO.

Guess all would be less appealing if I weren't a white male...

I pretty much did. My first 11 years were spent in a small (official population: 200) farming community 50 miles (as the crow flies) south of Chicago. Post office, volunteer fire department, lumber company, barber, gas station, grocer, diner, limestone quarry turned swimming hole*. No stop lights and no minorities other than one Puerto Rican family.



*Only the post office and fire department are still open. There is a convenience store in the old lumber company building; I doubt it has anything to do with the original grocers.

Being one of the guest stars in Gilligan's Island would be fun. You know, all those people who could come and go freely and treat the island like a resort destination without the hassle of a resort? Just spend a little while in a tropical paradise, maybe have a romantic subplot with Ginger, and leave.

For a longer stint, I'd want to be in one of the more upscale 1980s or 1990s sitcoms, like The Cosby Show. Absolutely none of the Huxtables' neighbors were hurting.

I, too, grew up in Sitcomville™. Imagine Dennis the Menace being raised by a dad with Archie Bunker's politics (but Dick Van Dyke's humor), and a June Cleaver mom.

It was so comfy, I had to force myself to move out and into PrimeTimeville™ instead. Ended up in a family more like Malcolm in the Middle (or Roseanne), working at St. Elsewhere with the cast of Scrubs, and had kids who are more like Freaks and Geeks.

I grew up in one of those worlds. But bear in mind that behind the picket fences and perfect lawns, life was not like it appeared on tv. There were things in my childhood that I'd never want to return to. In some respects, the American Dream was a nightmare.

This is true. I grew up in the 50's and 60's, the whole roaming-the-neighborhood-on-my-bike-all-day. Ice cream truck, no A/C, peanut butter and jelly for lunch every day, Leave It To Beaver, Father Knows Best, Marcus Welby. It was, of course, a simpler time, but that doesn't mean it was a good time. I was raised in a tense, dysfunctional family and most every day was a misery. We got by, just barely middle class, not much money... I spent as much time as I could with a single aunt, my cousins up the street, and my grandma (and never a day goes by that I don't think about her). I wouldn't want to suffer through those days ever again.... Mayberry N.C. with Andy, Opie, and Aunt Bea looked as warm and comforting as a basket of muffins right out of the oven! Later in my life, I yearned to be a mail-order bride on Here Come the Brides (the bluest skies you've ever seen are in Se-attle!) Grown and away, Away, AWAY from 'home'.

I think this question needs more clarification.

Is it asking:
(a) Would you like to live in archetypal 1950s America with friendly neighbors and picket fences and so forth?
(b) Pick a situation comedy, and insert yourself into its situation, with its cast of characters. Would you be happy?
(c1) Do (b), but with the added restriction that you're continuing to live by the trope of sitcoms, so every time you buy groceries you end up with a baguette sticking out of your bag, etc.
(c2) Same as (c1) but with the qualification that you're not necessarily one of the main characters of the sitcom.

I think the episode with Frank Grimes showed that a real person from our universe couldn't survive in the Simpsons world.
Also wouldn't fare too well in Duckman's universe.

Gidget. You're surrounded by beautiful girls, and you don't do much of anything except hang out at the beach and soda shop. Yeah they technically go to school but nobody seems to take their studies seriously or even worry about a career path. Plus dad's well off with a fancy house close to the ocean.

Life was pretty easy and simple in those sitcoms, I would want to avoid Get Smart and the Honeymooners though. First means I would be living in a dangerous world where all but the main characters were subject to death and torture. The second, as it was a crappiest living standard of all the DomComs.

Ghost and Mrs. Muir seemed like a nice place to live, the little town Gull Cottage was near.

Nanny and the Professor was a University Campus and town.

I Dream of Jeannie would probably mean I was working for NASA! That would be a win.

New Rochelle of the Dick Van Dyke show seemed boring, but working in TV with Rob Petry and crew might be fun, then again, the boss would be tough.

Beaver, My 3 Sons, Flying Nun, Andy Griffith Show, Green Acres, and the other rurals all seem unappealing too me though Beverly Hillbillies would probably mean I was a neighbor and thus well off and only had to put up with eccentric but fun neighbors as long as I don't get on the wrong side of Granny.



For the 70s, far less seem appealing, Taxi, Barney Miller, All in the Family, Good Times, etc. seem not so great. I suppose the Jeffersons would mean I had a job that could support living in a very expensive NYC apartment.

Some years ago, Analog had a novella (title and author unfortunately forgotten) where a woman and a man had to time-travel back to 1965 and Save the World by preventing something from happening. Rather than physically going back, though, it was their adult minds that were sent back to temporarily hijack their younger selves (15 for the woman, 14 for the guy). One of the big difficulties in carrying out the mission was how restricted a high-school girl was, especially then. The guy had a little more freedom but more difficulty getting the couple hundred miles to where she was, to say nothing of disappearing for a couple days.

She commented that the good old days aren't all that great not viewed through rose-colored glasses.

For All in the Family, it would depend a lot on your politics. I personally would get along with Archie much better than Meathead did (on most things) and vice-versa.

And I would love to be married to Gloria. I would treat her better than Meathead did.

Oh, that sounds like an awesome premise.

Anyone else happen to recall this title? I want to find it.
