MASH The dialogue is just atrocious, nobody talks like this. So many douche-chill inducing lines toss around, lame unfunny jokes, and Alan Alda pretending to be Groucho half the time is fucking embarassing. The show fails at everything. For some reason my dad loved this show. FAMILY TIES I don't know if this was ever a sacred cow, I seem to remember it being very popular when I was a kid even though I never really watched it. If it was ever on, it was just background noise. I've caught a couple episodes on Antenna TV lately and wow, what a sadsack excuse for a sitcom. Wussy hippie shit. I'd like to see the dad get his ass kicked, if that happens in one of the episodes I might cut it some slack.
