TV Addict's Meme

I got this one from Bev, who got it from...

Oh, you know the drill. Anyway, when I saw this meme, I knew it was just my cup of TV.

1. Name a TV show series in which you've seen every episode at least twice:
Law and Order, for sure; but also Seinfeld, Star Trek TOS, and Fawlty Towers.

2. Name a show you couldn't miss:
At the moment, Boardwalk Empire. During my youth, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. All the girls were in love with Illya Kuryakin!

3. Name an actor that would make you more inclined to watch a show: 
Chris Noth, Hugh Laurie, Connie Britton (even though I have yet to catch American Horror Story), Tina Fey, Kyle Chandler, Steve Buscemi, James Gandolfini, Vincent D'Onofrio, Sean Bean...the list goes on and on! 

4. Name an actor who would make you less likely to watch a show:
Anyone named "Kardashian", although that's stretching the term "actor" quite a bit.

5. Name a show you can, and do, quote from: 
Seinfeld, The Simpsons, The Kids in the Hall, Saturday Night Live, Monty Python's Flying Circus 

6. Name a show you like that no one else that you know enjoys:
It's Alway Sunny In Philadelphia, except that's not really true. SonnyeBoy turned us on to Always Sunny, and now both Joe and I watch it.

7. Name a TV show which you’ve been known to sing the theme song:
Gilligan's Island, Malcolm in the Middle, Friends, Cheers.

"The Son" from Season 4 of Friday Night Lights.

12. Name a show you keep meaning to watch, but you just haven’t gotten around to yet.
Mad Men. I'm think I'm out of luck on that one -- it would be too hard to catch up.

13. Ever quit watching a show because it was so bad?
Not really -- I stop watching more because I lose interest rather than because a show is bad.  

14. Name a show that’s made you cry multiple times:
Friday Night Lights, without a doubt.

We eat dinner in front of the TV. And snacks. We don't discriminate! 

16. How often do you watch TV?
Every damn day. What?

Comedy, but good ones are hard to find.
