Some are asking why I’m only choosing sitcoms that premiered prior to 2001. The answer is simple: I haven’t watched any new sitcoms in a decade and don’t want to unfairly exclude something. Obviously, I haven’t seen every sitcom produced prior to 2001, but I was at least sampling the wares then. Also, keep in mind that this is a “favorites” list, not a “best” list, and as you’ll see, my personal and questionable tastes tend to run a certain way that will be up to you to figure out.
