    I don't think I've ever watched a single episode of any of the law, cop, or medical shows (LA Law, ER, Hill Street Blues, etc).

    You and I must be the same person, Mike.[​IMG]
    Although I did watch ER, occasionally, about 7 or 8 years ago.

    Wow, I really expected a whole lot of you to chide me for not having seen The X-Files.
    Where is everybody?

    Nice idea for a Poll, which is why I've moved it here. Keep the thread alive, please.

    I've never seen ...

    * M*A*S*H
    * Law and Order
    * L.A. Law
    * Mary Tyler Moore
    * thirtysomething
    * Cheers
    * NYPD Blue
    * really, just about everything. I didn't even see my first Seinfeld episode until early this year.

    I don't watch commercial network television that much. Most of my viewing is on PBS. Hell, you name it (except for Star Trek), and I've probably not seen it. I know what Drew Carrey looks like, for example, but I have no idea what he does.

    This does not apply to series from the 1960s, which is when I last watched commercial network television regularly.

    Stop what you're doing RIGHT NOW and buy a MST3K DVD. IMO, the best would be either Eegah or Manos: The Hands of Fate.

    It's ok...you're going to make it through ok!


    I really don't watch TV shows other than the specialty shows on CN and Adult Swim. (Stuff like Toonheads, Bob Clampett Show and AS shows like the very funny Hunger Force, Mission Hill, Oblongs, and Brak.)

    I saw a few Star Trek episodes, but it is just a little cheesy for my tastes. (despite me liking MST3K...)

    Comedy:

    The Simpson's
    MASH
    I Love Lucy
    The Honeymooners
    Mary Tyler Moore


    Drama:

    The Sopranos
    Sex in the City
    CSI
    West Wing
    Any Star Trek beyond the Original (and only 1 of TNG)
    Babylon 5 (never hear about it anywhere other than here)
    The Practice.

    Anything on the WB. (Dawson, Charmed...)

    I'm 26 so some older shows may not really apply (maybe we should all include our ages). This could go on forever but I'm at work so I listed the big ones that came to mind.

    Infinitely shorter would be a list of shows I have seen. I don't believe there is a single show that is currently running that I have seen more than ten minutes of. My DVDs get very active use. [​IMG]

    The HBO shows don't count, because I don't get HBO.

    Well, there are many, many shows I've never seen. I guess I was mostly considering shows that are very popular, have been on for a lot of years, lots of discussion, etc.

    I guess the best example for me is Law and Order. Not only has it been only for about 10 years, it has spawned many sequels, and it is seen in repeats about 3 times a day.

    I've never seen a single episode.

    I never watched a single episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, even though I have seen all of the original series' episodes.

    So there.

    I have given up on network TV except for football and The Simpsons.
    Anyone who can get the Canadian SHOWCASE should check out at least one episode of TRAILER PARK BOYS.

    Seinfeld
    I never even knew it existed until everyone began getting so worked up that it was ending. The many many shows I haven't seen are most of those listed on this thread already.
    Well I have seen one episode of Seinfeld on reruns, it involved Edward Scisserhands, but I missed the beginning five or ten minutes, so I still haven't seen all of any episode.
    It's so much fun telling people I've never seen Seinfeld, I think I probably won't [​IMG]
