Oh, I forgot I also love Boy Meets World, Roseanne, 3rd Rock, Ellen, and NewsRadio, too. these sitcoms were way better than today's crappy sitcoms, IMO.

Apparently they're doing a remake of Boy Meets World.

Also, I would disagree. You're taking 10 years of new sitcoms, and comparing them to the last couple, and looking at them through nostalgia glasses. Big Bang Theory, and How I Met Your Mother were wonderful shows for the first 3-4 seasons or so. One of the benefits of Netflix, is you can go back, and find out that some of the old sitcoms didn't age well at all.

It isn't a remake. It is a sequel. It is Girl Meets World. Cory and Topanga are married and have a daughter.

The style of sitcoms have certainly changed over the years. There are some pretty decent sitcoms that have aired in the last decade...

Big Bang Theory
Two and a Half Men (Last few years not so much)
How I Met Your Mother
According to Jim
Hot in Cleveland
Sullivan and Son
Two Broke Girls
Mike & Molly

Sorry for going Off Topic.

I'm sorry but the only American sitcom that I have really enjoyed since Friends ended is Go On, and it only lasted a season. I will admit that I haven't tried all of the ones in Bigoranget's lists, but I absolutely HATED Big Bang Theory. It was just plain stupid. The characters were stupid, the situations were stupid, and the stereotypes drove me crazy. Hollywood couldn't make fun of ethnic groups, blondes, or LGBT any more, so they just used the same gags and lazy writing and applied it to scientist-types. It still encourages people to hate those who are different. What a truly wretched show. It wasn't even funny.

Go On wasn't that good. I only watched it because it was a sports Radio show. Two & Half Men has gotten better since the got Charlie's lesbian daughter. It is not as good as when Charlie was there but better then right after Charlie left.

There are shows I used to love - made the mistake of watching on netflix - scary to see them now. Some shows still remain good.

Cheers, News Radio

The thing that makes Two and a Half Men stupid is Allen. They have made his character so ridiculous it's to the point of being unwatchable.

I'm curious which ones. There isn't a tune of sitcoms on Netflix (Even the American one). On the American one I have watched episodes of Leave it to Beaver, Andy Griffith Show, Coach, Cheers, Fraiser, That 70s Show, Wings, Malcolm in the Middle, Scrubs and Dinosaurs.

Married With Children. Although it started in the 1980s, it ran most of the 90s.

There was a number of smaller ones I liked.
Top Of The Heap (pre Friends Matt LeBlanc).

Not sure of the name, but one with Jon Silverman, Joey Slotnick, Olivia D'Abo, and Ernest Borgnine. It was about 95/96, and paired with Friends, on Global at least.

The one with Lea Thompson as a cartoonist.

One with Jay Thomas and Susan Dey (with Joel Murray as a barfly)

Men Behaving Badly

Don't forget Mad About You, Frasier, and Murphy Brown.

The Jon Silverman one is The Single Guy.
Olivia D'Abo only appeared in 2 episodes, with 2 different characters.

The Lea Thompson one is Caroline in the City.

The Jay Thomas one is Love & War.
Susan Dey was only on for one season before she was fired because she had no chemistry with Thomas.

Larry Sanders show - possibly the hardest I've ever laughed. Along with Seinfeld, totally ruined me for sitcoms thereafter.
