Monday Memos: Top 3 TV shows that left us to soon in 2014 & 2015

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to talk about everybody’s favorite pastime…watching T.V.! January is an interesting time for T.V., because this is when new seasons premiere, new shows are added to the list of thing’s we’re obsessed with, and our hearts are broken when our fav shows are cancelled. So let’s take a look at some of the shows in 2014 & 2015 that were taken from us far too soon. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
crisis3) Crisis (NBC):
This high action drama was another show that had the potential to be so great. It told the story of what happens when the nation’s most powerful people’s children are kidnapped and held for ransom. We not only got to see the drama that the adults went through as they struggled with their parental love and civil duties, but we also got to see the drama that the kids went though as they tried to survive. This is a show that always kept its’ audience on their toes, so I would have liked to see how it would have continued.

2) Red Band Society (FOX):red band society
This show was able to perfectly balance, romance, drama, tragedy, and comedy in an amazing story of terminal ill teenager who live in a hospital. Even though the show only had a 13 episode run, they did a great job of developing their characters, and it’s obvious that we would have fallen even more in love with these characters as the series continued.
 
twisted 21) Twisted (ABC Family):
This was was another drama that always had us on our toes. This show told the story of a boy named Danny who returns to his hometown after 5 years in a juvenile detention center after being convicted of murdering his aunt. When he returns he reunites with his 2 childhood best friends and soon finds himself accused of committing another murder after a popular girl from his high school dies. In the rest of the season we get romance, lots of drama, and more questions about whether or not Danny really killed his aunt, and if he didn’t what secrets is his family hiding. It’s such a shame that this show ended before we could really dive into the story, and explore these complex characters.

Monday Memos: Top 5 shows to binge watch this winter break

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to talk about one of the past times that we all enjoy…binge watching! Whether you like Netflix, Hulu, DVDs, or anything in between you know that we love spending hours getting lost in our favorite shows. So if you want to know what shows you should watch this winter please keep reading. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

5) Beverly Hills 90210 (Hulu):Beverly-Hills-90210-beverly-hills-90210-2630447-745-543

This classic 90s teen drama is definitely one that all music fans should check out (if you’re not already a fan of it) because this is the show that is given the credit of creating the teen drama genre that brought us other favorites such as Dawson’s Creek, Gossip Girl and so many others. If you think Rosewood has drama just wait until you see what happens in Beverly Hills.

 

star trek4) Star Trek (Netflix):

If you’re into sci-fi then I’m sure you’re already in love with this groundbreaking franchise, with a new highly anticipated movie coming out next year this is the perfect time to get familiar with Star Trek. This show has great, complex characters, incredible action, and because there have been A LOT of movies, spin-offs, and even an aminated show then you know that this is a franchise that knows what its’ viewers want to see.

 

3) Digimon/Yu-Gi-Oh (Netflix, Crunchyroll, Yugioh.com): digimon yugioh

Whether you watched these shows as a kid, love anime, or just love amazing shows then you have to rewatch these shows this winter break. If you haven’t revisited the Digital World lately then you need to catch up before this franchise releases it’s newest movie next year (btw if you haven’t seen the 1st movie in the Digimon Adventure Tri series then you need to RIGHT NOW because it’s amazing). 2016 will also bring us a new movie that will follows the King of Games Yugi as he saves the world from evil…again (poor kid can’t get  break). Even though we don’t know a lot about this new movie yet, we do know that it takes place 6 months after the original Yu-Gi-Oh manga ends so now is a good time to dust off your deck and getting ready to duel.

 

2) Pretty Little Liars (Netflix):

pretty little liarsOk if you’ve ever seen this show then you know that you have to binge watch this show at least every other season to keep up with everything that has happened. Last season we found out who “A” was and honestly were left with even more unanswered questions. When we visit Rosewood again in 2016 we will time jump 5 years in the future, so needless to say you may need a few days to catch up again on all the romance, drama, and suspense (I don’t know if my feels can handle this again y’all).

 

1) Gilmore Girls (Netflix):gilmore girls

Needless to say the internet went into a frenzy when we found out that we were going back to Stars Hollow. Gilmore Girls had drama, romance, amazing characters, witty writing, and basically made everyone want to move to a small town. If you’ve never seen Gilmore Girls then you are missing a VERY important part of TV history and you need to hop over to Netflix right now and check it out (c’mon you’re on there all day anyway so go on and check it out).

YouTube Wednesday: YouTube Red…YouTube steps into the subscription game

Hello people of the internet!!! We talk about so many amazing YouTubers that are all incredible and unique in their own way. There is youtube redone thing that all of these YouTubers have in common, if you like the channel, then you subscribe to it so you don’t miss a thing. Well what if you could subscribe to YouTube? Yup you heard me right! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to talk about YouTube’s recent announcement that they will begin their 1st subscription service on October 28th. This is definitely a very new move for the website, so keep reading to see how this could affect you. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

Ok now that I’ve officially freaked you out, let’s break down the details of this news. At an event in Los Angeles earlier today, YouTube released it’s new subscriptions service called ‘YouTube Red’, which allows subscribers to pay $9.99 a month in exchange for some really cool benefits. These benefits include: the ability to watch unlimited YouTube videos completely ad free, the ability to save videos to watch offline when you don’t have a connection to the internet, the ability to continue watching videos while running other apps, unlimited streaming of Google Play Music, and exclusive content from top YouTube creators that you won’t have access to without this subscription. YouTube has said that you will be able to watch a lot of the same content for free, but you won’t have access to any of the bonuses listed above. Needless to say this is a BIG step for a website that is now a huge part of our everyday lives. So what do y’all think of this change? Will you subscribe to ‘YouTube Red’? One thing is for sure, starting October 28th, the way we watch YouTube will be changed forever. Let me know below what you think, and check out this video from theverge.com that explains all of the new changes in greater detail.

Monday Memos: Mila, the ultimate fangirl

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we are going to talk about something that we all go little girl who loves adamthrough. Whether it involves a band, actor, book, or song, we are all fangirls (and fanboys…don’t think I’m leaving the guys out of this one). Whether you keep your fangirling to yourself, or you have a twitter account completely dedicated to the loves of your life, we all usually have one thing in common…eventually our ships sink. However, thanks to the internet one very lucky little 3 year old girl named Mila got to meet her celebrity crush face to face. Now I know that you have all heard about this one, but honestly this story was so sweet I just couldn’t resist sharing it with y’all (and you know you wanna watch it again).

 

In an interview a few days ago with Ellen DeGeneres, Mila’s mother explained that she told Mila about Adam getting married in a grocery store, and immediately changed the subject when  Mila freaked out (didn’t we all), but then she decided to tell Mila again and film it (again I think we all would have done this). Ellen invited Mila on to her show so they could talk about love, Mila’s relationship with Adam, their wedding plans, etc., you know typical girl stuff. After receiving a really cool Adam themed outfit (yeah Ellen I’m gonna need to know where I can get one of those), Mila actually got to meet Adam. Unfortunately for Adam, Mila seemed to be over the relationship, but she did keep the rose he brought her (good girl!). It is such a cute video that y’all all have to check out. So now that Mila has successfully lived out every fangirl’s dream, what will she do next? Blockbuster Hollywood movie? Walk the runways at the next Fashion Week? MIla for president in 2016? Whatever she does, Mila will always be an inspirations to fangirls everywhere!

YouTube Wednesday: Some of our fav YouTubers have reached a new level of awesome

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about something a little different madame tussauds youtube wax figuresthan what we usually discuss. This year has definitely been a HUGE year for YouTubers. Many of our fav internet celebrities have gotten book/movie/TV/deals, scored magazine covers, and so many other amazing traditional media opportunities. One of the most recent accomplishments that a lot of YouTubers can add to their resumes, is the honor of being added to Madame Tussauds’ Wax Museum. This is an INCREDIBLE win for Team Internet that will definitely change up the game for everyone. So now let’s get to the fun part! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

In the past few months, we have found out that vloger Alfie Deyes, beauty guru/blogger Zoella, and comedians Smosh and Jenna Marbles would be receiving their own wax figures in Madam Tussauds’ museums. Honestly this is a HUGE accomplishment for them, because it places them in incredible company. This also continues to solidify the fact that in the past 10 years, YouTubers have gone from “kids making videos in their bedrooms”, to actual respected entertainers, and moguls in their respected fields.

 

Now if for some reason you don’t know who Madam Tussauds is, then you definitely need to keep reading because you will become OBSESSED with this awesome museum. Madam Tussauds’ Museum first opened in London 200 years ago, and has since opened branches all over the world. The museum & displays wax sculptures of some of the world’s most important political, sports, and pop culture figures. Some people that have gotten a wax figure include: Barack Obama, Abraham Lincoln, Princess Diana, Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Albert Einstein, Pablo Picasso, Muhammad Ali, Marilyn Monroe, and so many other amazing people. Needless to say, once you get one of these wax figures you are instantly added to a secret club of awesomeness. I can’t wait to see what types of opportunities YouTubers continue to receive, as the internet and traditional media continue to built off of each other.

YouTube Wednesday: Angry Grandpa’s house prank

angry grandpa

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about a recent YouTube video that we can’t stop watching. I know we often talk about how talented, funny, and creative YouTubers are, but sometimes we forget that they are regular people who just share their awesomeness with us. However, sometimes we get videos where our fav YouTubers discuss social issues with us, tell us about their fears/problems, and basically treat us like the BFFs that we all wish we were to them. If you love the popular YouTube channel ‘Angry Grandpa’ and/or videos that will make you cry then please keep reading. Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

A few weeks ago the YouTuber ‘thekidwiththecamera’, who is the son and one of the masterminds behind ‘Angry Grandpa’, uploaded a “prank” video that will melt your heart. If you’ve never seen ‘Angry Grandpa’ before, it’s a YouTube channel where a man named Michael “Pickleboy” Green uploads his father (Charlie Green) reacting to current events, celebrities, and pranks that Pickleboy pulls on him. There are videos of Angry Grandpa pulling pranks on his son as well (disclaimer: The only video on this channel that I’ve seen is the one that I will post below, but some of the other videos do contain language that may be inappropriate/insulting to some people, so keep that in mind if you check them out). Anyway, in this video, Pickleboy, his girlfriend, and his father are looking at a house because Pickleboy has told his dad that he’s interested in buying it. The three go through the house, and after they get Angry Grandpa’s approval, Pickleboy tells him that he’s not buying the house for himself, he’s actually buying it for Angry Grandpa. The reaction to this is priceless and will definitely make you want to go and hug your loved ones (just round them all up in a big group hug…no it’s really not as weird as it sounds…moving on). Before this, Angry Grandpa lived in a trailer home, so that fact just breaks you heart even more (seriously I haven’t cried this much since I saw ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ and now YouTube has me crying again…anyways…). Personally I like seeing videos like this because it’s cool to see that there are so many good things in the world, check out the video below, but have some tissues on standby.

YouTube Wednesday: #DearMe, the new YouTube campaign that you HAVE to check out

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday. We are going to talk about a very interesting question that is a part of a new floating around YouTube. The question is “what wisdom would you share with you teenage self?”. YouTube asked many of its’ female creators to make a video where they answer this question (in honor of International Woman’s Day, which is on March 8th), using the hashtag #DearMe. I thought that this was a really cool topic to talk about, because honestly I think we all have things that we would love to tell our teenage selves. I watched A LOT of these videos, and even though they were all great, I decided to bring y’all 4 YouTubers from various YouTube communities. So check out these AMAZING women of the internet, and let me know what you would love to tell your teenage self.

 

First off, we’re going to talk about actress/comedian/vlogger Grace Helbig’s video. Now most people know Grace from her previous YouTube show ‘Daily Grace’, her personal YouTube channel, her podcast ‘Not Too Deep With Grace Helbig’, her self-help book ‘Grace’s Guide: The Art of Pretending to Be a Grown-Up’, her work as a co-producer/co-star on the feature film ‘Camp Dakota’, and sooo much more TV/YouTube work that would be too long to list. I really loved Grace’s video, because it was full of a lot of good advice, but still included some of the humor that makes Grace so much fun to watch. In this video, she talks about having fun with life, and always laughing no matter what is going on. I think that that is a really good message, because as we get older we can forget to take the time to have fun, and eventually just become stressed out messes (and who wants that right?), Grace also talks about not letting your fear’s control you, and even says that there is a philosophy in improv comedy that says you should “follow your fear”. I think that this is good advice to follow, because as the great philosopher Taylor Swift once said “To me, Fearless is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death”. Check out her video here:

Daily

Next up we have violinist Lindsey Stirling, who was first introduced to us when she competed on season 5 of America’s Got Talent in 2010 (she competed as a hip-hop violinist, which meant that she played the violin while showing dancing…yeah I’m guessing that is MUCH harder than it sounds). Lindsey then went on to blow us away on YouTube with her AMAZING covers, and original music. In her #DearMe video, Lindsey talks about how when we’re young (and occasionally when we grow up), we are very insecure, and often feel like we have to impress everybody. Lindsey says that the best way to handle this is too remember that “you would care a lot less about what people thought about you, if you knew how little they thought about you”. Which means that everybody is so insecure about their own “flaws”, that the majority of the time they’re not even thinking about your “flaws”. She also talks about how she would advice herself too not be afraid of putting yourself out there and making new friends, talking to people who you want to be more than friends with, and following your dreams, because if you try and fail, you’ll at least know instead of wondering what could have been. Lindsey would definitely know all about perseverance, because when she was voted off America’s Got Talent, the judges told her that she would “never be able to fill stadiums”, and that her style just wasn’t marketable. Obviously they were wrong, since Lindsey is now in the middle of a world tour, and billions of people have viewed her videos online.

Now we’re going to talk about a YouTuber who I wasn’t previously familiar with, but I’ve watched some of her videos, and she is AWESOME! Who is this YouTuber? Fashion/beauty guru Scherezade Shroff. Scherezade is also an actress and has modeled for numerous international campaigns, as well as has walked in numerous fashion shows. In her ‘#DearMe’ video, she says that she would tell her teenage self to “love all your imperfections”. In this video, she reveals that as a teen, she dealt with having bad skin, pressure to change her hair, eyebrows, and teeth, and also suffered from Alopecia (which is a condition that makes you start to go bald). With all of the pressure that women (and men) go through to fit a certain image of what makes a person “beautiful”, it’s nice to see a YouTuber who was able to accept her “flaws”, and actually achieve her dream of becoming a model. I think that this video really makes you think that anything is possible.

A

Ok, the last video that we’re going to talk about is iHasCupquake’s video. She is a gamer, self-proclaimed “geeky baker”, and also post DIY (Do It Yourself) videos. I wasn’t familiar with this YouTuber either, but after watching a few of her videos, I found that she has a fun/funny personality, with a channel full of diverse content, definitely a channel too check out if you haven’t already. Her #DearMe video was all about being yourself, and remembering that “You like what you like”, and that’s ok. It’s really cool to see influential YouTubers encouraging their viewers to celebrate their uniqueness (let your weird live people), because it can be hard for us to be ourselves and enjoy the things that make us happy, if these things aren’t “cool” (as long as what you enjoy isn’t illegal or hurts anyone, go for it!). She also brought up a really good point about surrounding yourself with good people who will lift you up, because “who you surround yourself with is a reflection of you”. I think that this is really really good advice, because if you’re around negative people then you will have A LOT of drama in your life, but if you’re around positive people, then life can be a lot easier. She also talked about how we change as we grow up, so you should not only embrace who you are, but who you will become.

 

Please follow all of these AMAZING YouTubers on their various social media accounts, which can be found on their YouTube channels.

Monday Memos: 5 reasons why you SHOULD be looking forward to school this year

Hello people of the internet!!! I thought that since it’s back to school time, we should dedicate this week’s ‘Monday Memos’ to that time of the year that we all dread. But, instead of listing the many reasons why you don’t want school to start again, we are going to discuss the 5 reasons why you SHOULD be looking forward to school this year. Now I want to tell y’all ahead of time that this blog is meant to be funny, and you should definitely NOT do a lot of the things I will be suggesting. As much as we may not like it, we actually do have to try heard at school, because if you have no education then you won’t have a job, then who is going to buy your pizza and pay for your Netflix subscription. Exactly! Ok, let’s dive into the list.

 

 

5) Sleep

Let’s face it; there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done right? I mean you have Twitter stalker, Instagram stalking, Facebook stalking, watching YouTube, reading http://celindareyesblog.com/ (hint, hint), eating. So basically since your day is so booked, how are you expected to get the recommended 8 hours of sleep every day. Well let’s use our brain and think about it. Ready? Ok, School is 8 hours; the recommended amount of sleep you’re suppose to get daily is 8 hours…coincidence? I think not! Just make sure that you don’t sleep through lunch, and have someone to warn you when the bell rings.

4) People Watching

We all know that it’s easy to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram stalk someone (and you know you have), but one wrong move and you end up liking a picture or post from months ago (so embarrassing…at least that’s what I’ve heard…ok, moving on). Anyway, people watching is a much safer hobby, because you can admire that special someone from afar, and not be in danger of embarrassing yourself. See everybody wins! And who knows, maybe one day you’ll even talk to them…yeah maybe not, but that works too.

3) Electives

Now these are usually the only classes in school that we can actually stand. Whether you like music, art, gym, or anything in between, electives can usually be a lot of fun. Of course there are those teachers that actually take these classes seriously (c’mon we take Art class to pretend like we’re not in school, not to draw fruit 100 times). Instead of electives, can’t we just have free time to watch YouTube or listen to the radio (btw, I HIGHLY suggest that you check out 103.7 KVIL, they are AMAZING!).

2) Fashion

Now y’all know we had to discuss fashion. Honestly how many times have you spent days or even weeks trying to find that perfect 1st day of school (c’mon you know you have…don’t worry we all have). Honestly sometimes the hallways seem more like runways, but if we didn’t take so much time with back to school fashion, then we might actually have to do homework (scary thought right!?!). Luckily school is the perfect place to try out outfit, hair, and makeup looks, so you can perfect them for the days of the week that actually count…the weekends!

1) Friends

No not those friends

Yes you can see your friends during the summer, but with jobs, vacations, “family time” (whether forced or not), and of course your weekly dates with Netflix (Hello seeing Zac Efron and Channing Tatum on demand, yes of course you’re going to make time for that).  With so much going on, it’s nice to have 8 hours a day spending time with your friends. I mean classes were intended for texting. Right?

Monday Memos: Golden Globes 2014 Recap

Hello people of the internet, on today’s ‘Monday Memos’, we are going to discuss what happened on the ‘Golden Globes’ this past Sunday (January 12, 2014). This show kicks off award season, and honors excellence in TV, mini-series, and TV movies. So are y’all ready!?! Well then let’s begin!

 

Opening Monologue: The hilarious comedy duo of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey once again hosted the show this year, and the two definitely made the show fun to watch.  The two started their monologue by making fun of their own hosting skills with their comment that “in Hollywood, if something kind of works, then they keep doing it until you get sick of it”. They then began making fun of a lot of the celebrities that were in attendance such as: Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep, Matt Damon (who they also made fun of later, when actress Melissa McCarthy presented an award, but supposedly got amnesia backstage, and now believed that she was Matt Damon), and numerous others. Amy and Tina also had a running joke with veteran actress  Julia Louise-Dreyfus (who at first pretended to be “too good” to sit in the TV section of the auditorium due to Julia’s first Golden Globe film  nomination, and then she later sat in the TV section, and Tina and Amy made fun of her). Finally, Tina and Amy made fun of George Clooney by saying that he “would rather float away in space, then spend time with a woman his age” (in reference to the hit film ‘Gravity’ that George did with Sandra Bullock).

I believe that this was an excellent and fun start to the award season!

Monday Memos: Shows that deserve a spin-off series

Hello people of the internet!!! With Disney Channel’s announcement of their newest show ‘Girl Meets World’ (a spin-off show of the popular 90s hit ‘Boy Meets World’), I began to think about the “spin-off” trend in television. First in 2003 Nickelodeon premiered its spin-off of the beloved children’s show ‘Rugrats’, which was entitled ‘All Grown Up’ and remained on air until 2008. Then, in 2008 The CW premiered a new version of the 90s teen phenomenon ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’, with a new cast of characters (however some of the actors from the original show guest stared on 90210). So, it’s apparent that “spin-off fever” has become very prevalent in Hollywood over the past few years. I think that this is because we become very emotionally invested in the characters from our favorite TV shows, that we begin to subconsciously think of them as real people, and thus we want to know all about their past and future (oh you know you start thinking of them as real people, don’t pretend like I’m the only one…I thought so). Although many great shows have had spin-offs (and occasionally prequels), I have made a list of 10 shows that I think deserve a chance to live again. If I’ve missed any shows, please let me know in the comments below!

 

10) Sister Sister

The thing that I always liked about this comedy, was how the characters dealt with real life issues, along with the primary storyline of two twin sisters who meet unexpectedly after being separated at birth. This show catapulted Tia & Tamera Mowry into superstardom, which led them to star in numerous other projects both separately and together. I think that it would be very interesting to see how the characters developed as they grew up, and how they ended up relating to one another as adults.

 

9) Doc

From 2001-2004, the world was reintroduced to country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, as the kind hearted and wise doctor ‘Clint Cassidy’ on ‘Doc’. On the show, Cyrus’ character dealt with personal, moral, and ethical issues; as well as the common politics found in the professional world. The show was full of complex relationships, interesting twists, and very relatable characters, so I think that it would be really interesting to see where their lives led them.

 

8)Lizzie McGuire

This show was a HUGE hit for Disney Channel in the early 2000s, and become a very successful franchise which included: clothing, fashion accessories, toys, a movie, and numerous other products, which became very profitable for the Disney Corporation. This show also launched the career of Hilary Duff, and quickly made the young girl a household name. The show ended at the end of the summer, right before the main characters where going to enter high school. The success of this show paved the way for numerous other young actresses to have successful careers in music, fashion, etc.

 

7)7th Heaven

This long running family drama revolved around the lives of the Camden family. The Camden family was a typical middle class family, who dealt with real life issues and triumphs in the town of Glen Oak, California. The father character on the show Eric Camden, (who was portrayed by Stephen Collins) was a protestant minister, whose large heart often placed him and his family in interesting situations. This show explored various social, economical, and ethical themes, which evolved over the years to keep in tune with our ever changing society. I think that the plot lines and character development were so impressive, that a spin-off of this show would have success for a numerous amount of years, and would grow with a generation the way 7th Heaven did.

 

6)George Lopez

This show (which starred comedian/actor George Lopez), showed the reality of a middle-class Hispanic family living in California. As the majority of the shows on this list do, this show explored real-life issues however; it also explored the plight of what working class individuals go through, when they move up the cooperate ladder. Although this show was not extremely popular when it originally aired, its ratings have done extremely well in syndication. I believe that due to how popular the show has become since its original run ended, along with the growing popularity of George Lopez, (due to his involvement with the Disney ‘Beverly Hills Chihuahua’ franchise), that this would be the perfect time for a spin-off to happen. George Lopez now has voice recognition credibility, so even if some people don’t know how he is, they will recognize his voice, and be attracted to the sitcom.

 

5) Home Improvement

‘Home Improvement’ was a family sitcom, (which starred actor Tim Allen), which revolved around the lives of a man named Tim (who was the host of a home improvement show, where he also sold tools for a fictional tool company called ‘Binford Tools’),his family, his best friend, and his neighbor. Tim was a very cocky man, whose pride often got his family into crazy situations. This sitcom made a large amount of the cast into household names, and led to numerous other projects during, and after the show originally aired. I think that a spin-off of this show would do very well, due to the original team’s excellent casting choices and witty scripts.

 

4)Seinfeld

This long running situational comedy starred (and was co-created by) comedian Jerry Seinfeld, who portrayed a comedian named Jerry on the show (talk about life imitating art). Jerry had three close friends on the show: George ( his best friend, whose extreme penny pitching ways and jealously of others, often got him into extremely uncomfortable situations), Elaine (his ex-girlfriend who is often too honest for her own good), and Kramer (Jerry’s eccentric neighbor, who often slid through Jerry’s door as his way of entrance, and was very abrasive of Jerry’s personal space). I believe that this show was so popular, because it resonated with the general public due to its dry and subtle humor. This show presented a model of comedy that had not previously been explored, and thus opened a new market in television, that has continued to be used ever since.

 

3)Friends

This highly acclaimed show, consisted of an ensemble cast, who portrayed 6 friends living in New York City, who dealt with the ups and downs of adult life. The characters had numerous entanglements among each other, which often were the cause of several interesting situations. Ever since the show ended its original run, fans of the show have asked for its return, so I think that it’s easy to see why a spin-off of the show would be a huge success. This show also launched the careers of all of the cast members, although some have had more fruitful careers than others, all 6 members of the cast have had career opportunities because of the show’s popularity. Although this show did have a short lived spin-off, I believe that the show’s continued popularity, would make a second spin-off a profitable investment.

 

2)Full House

There is no question that this family comedy has had amazing success in syndication, and thus certainly warrants a spin-off. This show revolved around the life of single father Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), who asks for the aid of his best friend (Joey) and brother-in-law (Jesse) , in raising his three daughters, once his wife passes away. Joey and Jesse soon become pseudo fathers to the girls, and continue to become essential members of the family for the shows entire run. This show starred John Stamos and Bob Saget, who were already successful entertainers in their own right, and launched the careers of the various other cast members, most notably, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen (who portrayed the youngest daughter Michelle).

 

1)The Cosby Show

Now we’ve reached #1 on our list!!! Although many of the other shows mentioned on this list could have easily been #1, I chose this show because of its ability to transcend through the decades, and remain relevant. This sitcom starred famous comedian and all around entertainer Bill Cosby, as a good natured New York doctor named Heathcliff “Cliff” Huxtable, who had a tendency to exaggerate, and tell tall tells. The cast was rounded out with Cliff’s wife Claire (a successful attorney), and his 5 children. The show dealt with more intense and difficult topics as the children on the show grew up however, the show was essentially a family sitcom, so the topics never got too out of control. The Cosby Show has continued to be a syndication success even though it has been two decades since the show went of air. Although this show has already had a spin-off (called ‘A Different World’, which aired form 1987-1993), I believe that the original show has been off air long enough to warrant a second spin-off. Additionally, this new spin-off would be much more successful than A Different World, because it would not be in direct competition with The Cosby Show, like A Different World was.
