Five Classic Sitcoms Millenials Should Watch

Millenials think they’re invincible and know everything they need to know. However, most don’t know that some of their favorite sitcoms would never exist without the classic sitcoms of yesteryear.  Here are five shows millenials should watch. 

Cheers (1982-1993)

Cheers was the foundation of NBC’s iconic Thursday night comedy lineup which has since weakened and ultimately disappeared. Cheers takes place at a bar where everybody knows your name. Aside from being hilarious, the show has left a long legacy. It spawned the careers of many including Woody Harrelson and Kelsey Grammar, one of the most successful spinoffs of all time- Frasier, and created the very first will they/won’t they relationship made famous by Ross & Rachel of Friends (Fact: Sam & Diane came first.). 

The Cosby Show (1984-1992)

The Cosby Show was landmark television on many fronts. First, it was the first depiction of an upper-middle class black family with Cliff Huxtable as a doctor and Claire Huxtable as a lawyer (Bill Cosby initially wanted them to be a limo driver and carpenter). Second, it was the first sitcom to have well-written TV kids played by wonderfully talented kid actors. Malcom-Jamal Warner, Lisa Boney, and Keshia Knight scored Emmy nominations, Knight still holding the recorded as the youngest actor/actress to be nominated for an Emmy (she was six years old at the time). 

The Golden Girls (1985-1992)

For Those Who Like: Sex and the City, New Girl, Getting On

NBC took a big gamble on creating a sitcom about older women instead of 20-something singles. The result is hilarious. the common-sense Dorothy, the overly-sexual Blanche, the dim-witted Rose, and the brutally honest Sophia have drastically different personalities yet they blend together as roommates. Any Betty White fans would get a kick out her performance.  At 92 years old, she is the last remaining cast member alive. 

Everybody Loves Raymond (1996-2005)

For Those Who Like: The Middle, The Goldbergs, Mom

Watching this sitcom is like watching a comedic play. Everybody Loves Raymond is more than a family sitcom, it tackles typical family problems in very funny ways (many of them involve yelling). What makes this show great are the brilliant performances from Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Brad Garrett, Doris Roberts, and the late Peter Boyle. There has never been as great as a sitcom on CBS as Everybody Loves Raymond

Will & Grace (1998-2006)

For Those Who Like: Friends, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother

Will & Grace paved the way for LGBT characters on television. The show follows two best friends, one being a straight interior designer and the other being a gay lawyer. With the addition of a rich, vulgar drunk and a flamboyant aspiring actor, you have the funniest foursome since The Golden Girls. This a show that also relies on a very talented cast. Debra Messing, Eric McCormick, Megan Mullally, and Sean Hayes showcase their best work. It’s a shame that Nick at Nite or TV Land haven’t wised up to air this show (yet).

would you consider mom 1 more of your sister, wife, or partner? sorry if it's rude but I'm really curious about you guys! and btw you have the coolest family I've seen

That is a good and complicated question!  I think it’s hard to explain in terms that currently exist, which is why I refer to her as my sister in submission or sister submissive.  I think I’d consider her to be a hybrid of best friend, partner, lover and sister.  I know that’s a lot of things!  But yeah, she’s basically like…. i don’t know, we just really understand her.  She’s super cool and badass and I don’t know how I got so lucky to have her in my life, but.  Basically if you have ever had a person you called your sister but who isn’t related to you at all and you hang out all the time and are like partners in crime but also have sex.  That’s us.
