Top Ten Favorite TV Shows: Goeff Herbach

Today I have the privilege of welcoming  Geoff Herbach, author of Stupid Fast. He'll be stopping by for the Teen Book Scene's tour (which you can check out here) and sharing some of his favorite television shows. I'll let him take it away now.


Mad Men – Holy crap is this a good show.  It’s about everything.  And it’s really cool to look at, too.  I’ve bought all four seasons and watch episodes over and over (only problem is the show sort of makes me want to smoke cigarettes, which is very bad for you, I’ve heard).

Always Sunny in Philadelphia – Have you ever seen the episode when they try to go to the Grand Canyon but end up almost dying in the back of the U-Haul trailer, because they’ve set furniture on fire?  I love it.

The Office – I actually own the whole British version (just a couple of seasons), which is some of the most painful comedy I’ve ever watched.  I have loved the American version, too, but am worried about the loss of Steve Carrell!

Dukes of Hazzard – When I was a little kid, I refused to stay over night at anybody’s house unless they guaranteed me we’d be watching the Dukes. 

Golden Girls – I watch this on TLC in the middle of the night as much as possible.  Those old ladies have the funniest one-liners (like out of old-time stand-up).  Watch the reaction shots, too, sometime.  Awesome.

Roseanne – Darlene is the best characters ever.   I loved her when I was a kid.  I love her now.  I’d marry her.  Also cool to have shows that are really good comedies that take on serious stuff in life. 

Sunday (Monday) Night Football – Let me just say, I cry when I hear the Monday Night Football theme music.

Cosby Show – This show is so dorky, but characters are really well drawn, and Bill Cosby was one of the funniest people on the planet at one time.

Seinfeld – Too much to say.  My favorite show.  I’ll watch the same episode over and over.

M*A*S*H – If you can watch enough of this show to know the characters, it is probably the best written, most sort of literary comedy of all times.  Hawkeye is my second favorite TV character ever (behind Darlene from Roseanne).
Thanks for stopping by, Geoff! Remember to check out my review of Stupid Fast later this month. Happy reading, y'all.
