The Waltons, MASH and Star Trek TNG, and those are just off the top of my head.  Every hour long drama on tv owes a dept to those three shows btw....

TNG?  Nah.  TNG was far too "adventure of the week".  DS9 was miles ahead of it in terms of both storytelling and character development.

Mission: Impossible.

Now THAT was a show.

I'm not gonna help kick off a which trek was better argument, but let me just say: "Babylon 5".

Yes and both Babylon 5 and Ds9 wouldn't have existed without TNG.  TNG started the whole weekly plot with underlying character development and ongoing subplots, which is the formula most dramas use these days.  The only thing that doesn't are serialized dramas, but they still use a similar format.

Best show ever?

You obviously never watched "Sledge Hammer!"

"No, it's not a silencer. This little doodad is my own invention. I call it a loudener."

I liked Farscape.
I thought first season was pretty darn good and the show seemed to know how to have fun.
but they dragged the split Crichton thing too long and i lost interest.
may pick it up again if it's still on netflix.

I spent my holiday week watching reruns of Happy Days. My favorite episode is the one where the Fonz uses waterskiis and a ramp to fly over a captured Selachimorpha.

Well judging by what suggestions you guys have made maybe theres not that much difference between our old TV!

But you have basically proved my point about the limited TV pre 2000.

It was mostly sci fi, sit coms or comedy.

Sci fi was a niche market but you had Trek and Dr Who.
Sitcoms were mostly junk with a few exceptions.
Comedies yeah there was a few only fools and horses was shear gold.

Only other good series I can think of is Sharpe.

Thats pretty much my lot!!

Nothing they create today will ever be better than the old shows.
(there's too many to list here)  Also TNG was the best Star Trek.

I disagree. There are excellent shows being produced today. I just don't think shows from the past should be dismissed so easily.

I wasn’t crazy about season 3, but enjoyed season 4.

Just watched Bright today. It was Ok. They could have left the bird seed stealing fairies out of it.
I have watched a few of the Black Mirror episodes. Most are pretty good. The metal head (I think that was the name, with the robot dogs) one was real good I thought, but didnt like the way it ended.

I don't like Black Mirror. While interesting content it's too raw for my palette. I have no stomach for cruelty. The very first one turned me off completely - I've checked out a few others but nothing I saw made me want to get me back into it.

It reveals many disturbing things about British people.  And far too many episodes have a twist along the lines of, “surprise! You’re a digital clone!”  But I still like it.

It reveals many disturbing things about human kind.

And yeah it does....

Watched Bright and I dug it, sequel is on it's way: https://www.engadget.com/2018/01/03/netflix-bright-sequel/

I like Black Mirror as well, the first episode of season 1 was rough but they got progressively better each season. The last part of season 3 and all of season 4 were great.

If you want to be disturbed watch the Voyeur documentary on Netflix now, pretty twisted.  ;D

Bad news, diagnosed with Bronchitis right after Christmas.
good news, they caught the pneumonia early.
I watched the magicians on Netflix, all the free episodes of Dr. Who on firestick then entered the very bowels of PRIME.
Defiance.
2 seasons of Andromeda.
3 of the Mystica movies ( which I never knew even existed).
Cord and Tish new yrs day.
Watching Andromeda now still.
No regrets.
