Gordon Bennett: Chris Morris made their list three times, for The Day Today, Nathan Barley and The IT Crowd. Does that make him the coolest TV persona of all time?

Brass Eye and Jam also deserve spots on the list.

Along similar lines I would add Knowing Me Knowing You and The Armando Iannucci Shows. And The Mary Whitehouse Experience. Oh and Mock the Week, The Goodies (better than Monty Python) and of course some Scottish comedies such as Chewin the Fat and Rab C Nesbitt. And Only an Excuse? because Scottish football deserves it.


slow the fark down gordie i'm trying to remember all this

Shows I like that are cool and make me cool because I watch them:

* Venture Bros
* Cowboy Bebop
* Archer
* Samurai Jack

// cartoons are cool now.
/// you can trust me on this.

wippit: Kids in the Hall had it's moments... but sometimes it was painful...


You mean the endless barrage of sketches where the entire cast dresses up in drag?

OH THEY'RE GAY! HAHA THAT'S FUNNY.

Homicide. That list is way too long to be missing Homicide.
 
2012-02-06 09:11:01 PM
It's bad enough Veronica Mars wasn't on the list, but nobody here has mentioned it yet either.

Barney Miller wants to know when he stopped being cool. Also, Hill Street Blues should be on 'dere, sez I.

Junkyard Wars.


I miss Connections.........and Sledgehammer.

Some of your definitions of "cool" are a little different than mine.

First show I looked for: Airwolf.

I'm sorry, it just does.
 
2012-02-06 11:31:48 PM
No love for The Daily Show or The Colbert Report? Or are those outside the definition of "cool"?

Any Show with a cool bassline in it's theme (i.e. Barney Miller, Night Court, et al.) Should be on the list.

So Sanford and Son should be on the list.

That is all.

No mention of USA's Night Flight? That was THE show to watch after stumbling home at 3 a.m. on a weekend.

//then again he was a thick-headed moron
