Critically Acclaimed TV Shows You Don't Get

Buzz In: What Acclaimed TV Classic Do You Just Not Get?

30 Rock made a M*A*S*H joke this week, and my friend practically threw a fit telling me all about her hatred for that show. She said every time her parents turned it on and she heard that famous theme song, she wanted to cry from boredom. I actually know quite a few people who feel that way, even though M*A*S*H is considered one of the best shows of all time.

Maybe it's an age thing — do teenagers love Mad Men as much as I do? Then again, I know plenty of people my own age who think Mad Men looks boring despite all its critical acclaim. And even though I'm a huge fan of The Wire, I know there are lots of folks out there who don't get it and don't care to.

I'm wondering: What critically acclaimed show — whether now or in the past — do you just not think deserves all the fuss?

I hate Chuck and The Office. Though i watched good 20 episode of Chuck, i just decided i was watching too many shows and it wasn't as good as the others so i had to hate it so I wouldn't watch it. But The Office - I couldn't sit through first 10min, it was torture. I loved Mad Men, but somehow I got boring... The same with Damages. This kind of shows should go out with a bang after 13 episodes. Like a good short series.Like Kidnapped, i think it's the only short series I've seen that wasn't prolonged and it did good for the show.

Wow, most of the shows people seem to be hating on, I truly love: MASH, Friends, 30 Rock, Office...But the one show that I have never understood the appeal of is "Everybody Loves Raymond". I found the characters on there to be incredibly annoying and the story lines to be cliched. I couldn't stand watching it win all those awards year after year after year... Ugh.

ps: havent watched Mad Men yet but really looking forward to it. The Wire is in my opinion one of the best shows ever made. But it isn't something you can just lean back and enjoy and forget about your worries. But it's 100% more real then any of those 'reality' shows.

SeinfeldMash (watched it ages ago, cant remember much to be honest, apart from not liking it) Alias The Office (never watched the American version, only the English but didnt get it.) Law and Order: it's not bad, but there is much better. Sopranos: to some degree. I liked the first 2-3 seasons, but after a while it got a bit boring. 24: again liked the first few seasons and then it got kind of bad. Havent watched this season yet. Hope it picks up. 30 Rock: didnt get past episode 3.

Californiagirl, it's okay. I found your passion for it hilarious as I was reading your posts.Jenjennn, members of my dorm alway had it on (It debuted in my freshman year) and a lot of my friends watched it (thus, I watched it with them). I just didn't get it. No biggie. That being said, much of today's prime time is ignored by me. I love cable and when I watch t.v., I'm watching cable networks.
