"Assignment: What gone, but not forgotten, TV series do you miss the most?
Naturally, I can't just have one, it's got to be two.
1) The Garry Shandling Show. It's no longer on HBO, but you can get re-runs on ABC late on Saturday night if you're up. I think Garry Shandling, the anti-Warren Beatty, parlayed his rampant nerdliness into bankable TV. I mean that in a good way.
2) TAXI. For Danny DeVito and Christopher Lloyd. Is there a funnier character than "Jim," the fried green tomato brained stoner still on an acid trip from the sixties? For awhile I thought they'd actually found a real guy and taught him how to read lines. As for Danny DeVito -- only the sexiest pocket-sized man on the planet, next to Mel Gibson and Sylvester Stallone.
I kinda hoped DeVito would REALLY strip on that last episode or so of Friends. *SIGH* But he was at his eye rolling, caustic best as the manipulative taxi dispatcher.
Extra Credit: If you had to be on a game show or reality show, which one would it be?"
Family Feud. So very very bad, it's good. NOT the Richard Dawson version [see comments]. EEEEWWWWW.
