Best TV Show Ever…..
We all find ourselves rushing home from work, the gym, or from grocery shopping to make sure we get home just in time to catch our favorite shows. Some of us love talk shows, or reality shows, or even cartoons. Everyone in the world has different taste when it comes to their favorite show. Personally I think it is way too hard to just pick one show, but I will tell you the best in each category: comedy, drama, cartoon, and reality. So stay tuned because I will be right back after this quick commercial break.
Let me begin with reality, simply because that’s the one I watch the least. If I could pick one show off the top of my head to be my favorite it would have to be some piece of krap on VH1. Something like Flavor of Love or Rock of Love. I mean who doesn’t want to see a bunch of crazy chick going nuts over some washed up musician who probably has every major STD in the book. Quality TV. Thanks girls.
From crazy doped up chicks to a bunch of wild and crazy fourth graders from a little Colorado town. The best cartoon ever created is hands down South Park. The show can sometimes be very rude and inappropriate but at the same time it is genius and top shelf humor. The show always has a way of topping itself every new season it is on and the most amazing part about it is that each episode is made in only four days. So that gives the show the edge because it stays current to what’s going on in the world. And not to mention it is just down right hilarious.
Each individual contains a mind of their own that represents them. Whatever people say or do, whoever they may embody, whatever character or personality they have, people can not live in an illusion that they have invented in their minds. Reality and fairytales have two different meanings of life; Reality shows the facts about life, and fairytales consist of only imagainations that people yearn to ...
As for comedy I could go with greats like Seinfeld, or Everybody Loves Raymond, or even Two and a Half Men. But I’m going to go with HBO’s Curb your Enthusiasm. It is written by Larry David, who also is the star, and also wrote Seinfeld with Jerry Seinfeld. But this show is like Seinfeld times 100. Every episode is brilliant. The way the writers bring every aspect of the episode together in the end is a riot and masterful at the same time. Larry David is a comedic genius to me. Some people don’t get the show or him but he is hands down one of my favorite stars in television.
Now onto drama. If I wrote this journal entry a couple months ago I would have given you a completely different answer to the best drama category. But I have spent the last month in a half catching up a show that has blown my mind so many times that I can’t even sleep some nights. I am of course talking about LOST. I have watched every episode over the last month or so and I do not regret any second of it. The writing of the show blows the doors off of any other show every written. Every episode is like a giant puzzle piece that you slowly fit into a bigger puzzle. And then once you think you’ve gotten that piece where it belongs it ends up being in another damn puzzle. This show has literally kept me up some nights. I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and unable to fall asleep because all I want to do is find out what is going to happen next. Not only is the writing amazing but the acting and even the characters themselves are unreal. They capture the viewer in the very first episode and never loosen up their grip.
So there you are, the nominees for the best show of all time according to Michael David Signora. I’m sure you may disagree with every choice I wrote about but it’s like I said before, we all have different tastes. Well it was wonderful spending time with you on latest journal entry, be sure to come back next week for another installment of English Comp. 1 with your host Michael Signora. Goodnight everybody.
