  1. #15: The Simpsons Best Episodes: Lisa’s First Word, Cape Feare, The Springfield Files, And Maggie Makes Three, Summer of Ft. 2 Best Characters: Bart Simpson, Homer Simpson, Lisa Simpson It’s weird to see this show popping up on my list right? Especially with it still currently running and getting out of touch with people. Well, The Simpsons is one of the two longest shows on the list that I added regardless of the quantity not being good. I personally love shows like South Park and American Dad and the first six seasons of Family Guy are my jam but I just don’t wanna include those shows on my list because I feel like even their best have problematic elements and their problematic elements are really that bad. I also love Bob’s Burgers but I haven’t seen that show for so long, therefore many good moments there are blocked out of my memory and I don’t wanna continue it. What makes The Simpsons different from the rest is that The Simpsons changed the whole world. In a very good way. And I think its problematic stuff is nowhere near as bad as those shows I mentioned (except Bob’s Burgers). And The Simpsons, well early Simpsons showed us you can still be mature and funny without being raunchy or offensive. The Simpsons appealed to many people. From old kids to adults. It spoke to a lot of people, including me. Its humor shaped the world and that cannot be forgotten. And what I love about the best of The Simpsons is that it has a ton of heart. Whether you see Homer failing at shit, only to root for him to back up or Bart being a jerk but trying to learn how to be a good person or Lisa to gain confidence in friendships or Marge to experience new things. Or Maggie to just do crazy shit. The Simpsons at its golden age is still one of the best TV I have ever seen. One of the best comedies, one of the best sitcoms, one of the best shows of all-time. And it’s a miracle that despite it lasting for over 30 fucking seasons, it managed to have 8 successful seasons without declining so early like many other shows. The Simpsons will forever be one of my favorite shows ever because it’s best is still that powerful. #14: Ducktales (2017) Best Episodes: The Last Crash of Sunchaser, The Duck Knight Returns, The Last Adventure, A Nightmare on Killmotor Hill, The First Adventure Best Characters: Louie Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Lena Sabrewing I was having an era in which I stopped having interest in current kids cartoons. I think the magic of the early 10s was gone and I wanted a show that could actually appeal to me. Enter Ducktales reboot. I was already looking forward to this show with a great cast and the animation looked so beautiful but I did not give it a chance until this year. The show is not only a true successor to one unrelated show that is on my list, it’s such an incredible kids cartoon on its own. Disney’s Duck lore did not interest me at all but the show gave me that which I’ll always appreciate. It had a great idea of a family adventuring together, characters were loveable and funny, stories were compelling and exciting and it just never lets you go. Ducktales reboot is how you do a reboot, period. Not only respecting its source material (whether that’s the original cartoon or the comics), it being its own show with its own lore and setting. I was engaged so quickly. Even with its filler episodes, I was having a blast because the show knows how to lay back and have fun. And in the end, it’s about a family. Whether it’s the blood family that loves you and respects you or the family you make. The show has a ton of great mysteries that will hook you and it’ll make you want more. It’s a shame Disney canceled the show too soon before it could have been even more epic but at the very least, it ended on a great note and I’m glad the cast and the crew gave their passion and love to this show. #13: EastSiders Best Episodes: Both Sides Now, Our Own Private Idaho, Evolving, Episode 8, Sex Therapy Best Characters: Cal, Ian, Thom As you have already know, I’m a queer guy and despite all that, I have watched or read very little LGBTQ+ content in my life. Maybe it’s because LGBTQ+ stuff did not interest me because I’m a guy that wants more LGBTQ+ sci-fi or action or fantasy stories and I’m tired of comedic or down to earth stuff. Maybe it’s because other shows I have watched had more interesting characters because it’s hard to get an LGBTQ+ character right, even without offending people or worse, not having any kind of LGBTQ+ rep at all. I always wanted characters that appealed to me or are flawed, relatable and complex. This show has that. Maybe not a show that has extraordinary shit I crave for but it’s a strong drama show about messy lives of gay characters here. Every character of this show has done a mess in their lives and you get angry at them but at the same time, you wanna root for them to be better. The show tackles many different subjects that are relatable to queer people. Are open relationships a good idea? What does it mean to be queer? Is it about femininity or masculinity? How much does a person need those things? Am I a gay stereotype or not or does that even matter? How does bisexuality work? How much is sex necessary in our lives? How much should I be protected when it comes to sex? The show doesn’t always give you clear answers because sometimes it depends on the person and the show knows it. The show’s characters are all unique on their own. You get invested in their relationships with people, you get into their own personal dilemmas, you see how much good or bad they have done in their lives, you see them facing their demons. And the great thing about this show is that even the minor characters have some personality on their own and like I said, the show’s characters are mostly gay, so is the cast. The show’s creator Kit Williamson is one of my inspirations to be a great queer writer in the future because he just gets how to make a good queer content. What started out as an indie Youtube show grew into a very successful LGBTQ+ show with 4 incredible seasons and the great thing about this show is that it’s very easy to binge. Short seasons with short episodes. And it just ends so perfectly. I highly recommend this show to anyone who wants to see a very good LGBTQ+ show. #12: The Office (US) Best Episodes: Stress Relief, Niagara, Goodbye Michael, The End, Lecture Circuit Best Characters: Dwight, Michael, Creed This is the last show I have ever binged with a friend and thank goodness I did it because the show fucking rules. Just like Supernatural, the show was a long ass journey for me and unlike the former, it paid off successfully. As you can see, I’m not really a sitcom type of guy. I would love to watch more shows like Parks and Rec, Community, Schitt’s Creek, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 30 Rock but I just cannot find the right time. At the very least, I finished the show and I’m grateful for it. For a simple show about a documented paper company, the show knows how to make you laugh and make you feel. Characters of the show are very messy and while some of them are just plain bad, some others have good qualities and try to be good on their own. The show never stays the same. Characters get evolved or at the very least, they are consistently funny. The relationships and friendships these people build, the obstacles they face and the silly situations they get themselves into, you always find joy in it. Like I said, the show doesn’t go back to its status quo after an episode ends. There are some exceptions but even then, the show knows about the journey they faced and they do not forget that. And even if you don’t like serialization as much as me, the show is very episodic and they are very humorous and fun. Unlike the show they are based on, the show is actually very optimistic which I really appreciate. It is barely doom and gloom and the optimistic nature is why I love this show so much. Along with a killer cast, incredible writers and directors and good showrunners. I just can’t get enough of The Office. It’s very good. #11: SpongeBob SquarePants Best Episodes: Plankton’s Army, SB-129, Dying for Pie, Wet Painters, Welcome to the Chum Bucket Best Characters: Plankton, SpongeBob, Squidward It’d be very dumb to not include the show that changed my entire life on the list. This is the other show on my list that overstayed its welcome but I always consider one of the best shows ever. And unlike The Simpsons, I still watch it and have enjoyment out of it. Because the show went through a lot of different phases and it finds itself to be fresh, whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing. SpongeBob was my entire childhood and It’s one show that I always stuck with it. I loved it as a kid and I’ll always love it as an adult. No matter how many bad episodes they can throw at me, that will never change. But why do I love SpongeBob? It should be the same as anyone who is reading my list, friends with me and loves the show. The show is built on comedy. First three seasons are still what I consider some of the funniest entertainment in anything. Even If I got tired of watching them. And even with having inconsistent two eras after Stephen Hillenburg, Derek Drymon and most of the pre-movie crew left the show, the show always found a way to entertain me and make me laugh. And I can forever talk about the show and never get tired of it. You may be thinking, “what is there to talk about a show about a sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea?”. Well, I can give you reasons. Every episode is different from each other and most of their jokes and moments are very memorable to talk about. The stories these episodes have are interesting as you watch them. You get into the story and you just wanna see how it all ends. Characters make the show. No matter how unlikeable or insufferable they can get, the show’s characters are cool and funny. And I’m just a type of guy who likes talking about the animation of the show because its artstyle is always changing and it can always be good or bad or something in between but it is something that always gets your attention. I don’t know how much more I can talk about why this show is important to me. It shaped my childhood, it was one of the few shows that impacted my humor, it cheered me up whenever I was sad. What more can I ask for? I love it and I’ll always love it as long as I live.
