We all know that TV has produced more dreck than anything else. But there have been some quality television shows in our history. What shows do you think offered more substance than fluff? A few that come to mind for me:
**MASH*** - Was among the most funny shows on television, yet also sucked you in with drama and a touching sense of humanity. I can watch re-runs forever and not get bored.
Degrassi Junior High* - Canadians make good TV too. Way before the networks tried to cash in witrh the inferior likes of My So-Called Life and Felicity, this show poignantly portrayed adolescent life in these times we live in.
Hill Street Blues* - The ultimate Cop show that had it all - characters you could love and hate (often at the same time), emotional twists that ran from outrage to whimsy, and bizarre plot twists (like when that officer died while having sex) that still fit into a gritty urban Chiicago setting.
All In The Family* - A classic that deserves every accolaid it ever got. Changed the way TV looked at us, we looked at TV, and most importantly, the way we looked at each other.
