Oh, yeah. So, put you on the spot.
If you must.
What is your favorite TV show?
TV show or sitcom?
Okay, that is uh-okay, two parter. One, your favorite sitcom and two, your favorite animated show, too.
‘Cause we didn’t even talk about those.
No we didn’t.
That’s a whole nother episode right there.
Yeah, it’s an entirely different genre of television. Um, I, man, that’s hard. Maybe, maybe Frasier? Either Frasier or Friends. That’s really tough.
I think, ’cause when I when I watched those two shows what I thought was, Friends was really, really good and it had a lot of really funny moments. But you felt a lot of empathy with the characters. And it mattered when stuff, when bad stuff happened to them.
And you felt like you kind of felt like you were the seventh friend.
But with Frasier it was really highbrow.
And there were a lot of extremely clever moments, um, which Friends never quite had. And that they had a lot of funny moments, but they weren’t like, wow, that was super, super clever.
It’s like, but at the same time, you never quite got the same level of empathy.
It’s uh, different types of comedy, I think.
Even though they are both sitcoms, they had very different approaches.
Chandler and Joey though.
Yeah, you can’t. You can’t mess with that. That’s-
They are hilarious. And their duck and chicken.
Duck and chicken.
Probably the, possibly, I’m just gonna come out and say that this is factual information.
That is the best moment. This isn’t, people, this isn’t just my opinion. This is a fact. That is the best moment in television history is the chicken and duck.
And, you know, that’s already probably on Wikipedia. They could find it and fact check you.
I think so. Yeah. It’s not gonna have the little tab that says citation needed. It’ll just say ‘common knowledge.’
‘The truth.’ Yep.
