What is Cybill?

90s sitcom that we can now watch on demand via the information superhighway, thus using the awesome power of today's technology to live exactly the same way we did in the 90s

Cybill is very mid tier 90s sitcom. Never went out of my way to watch it but was never completely offended when I did.

okay so i just want to know if the show she did before that - Moonlighting - still holds up, because that one was top tier back then.

"mid tier 90s sitcom" is the most damning with faint praise term I've ever heard :jeanluc

You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?

I'm too busy mentally brainstorming any possible ways I could exploit the tortoise to somehow improve paperclip production

It's definitely much less obnoxious than some of Chuck Lorre's later work like Big Bang Theory, but still doesn't deliver on the early promise he showed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song

What is it like to be in a relationship where the woman is obviously wearing the pants?

She does the British thing of reserving "pants" to mean underwear and only calling pants "trousers," so ... wait what was the question?

Union Square is a 1997 television sitcom that was broadcast on NBC for one season. It follows the story of a lawyer-turned-playwright in Manhattan, who attempts to gain inspiration from a host of characters populating the fictitious Union Square cafe, obviously inspired by the New York area of the same name.

Union Square was great, for all the wrong reasons. Look at this thing:



lmao, the pilot star isn't even in the rest of the show
Quote
The show was originally supposed to be a vehicle for actress Mel Gorham, but after poor test screenings for the pilot, the producers retooled the show and replaced Gorham with Constance Marie.

I just remember Union Square being one of the worst shows at retaining the Friends audience. You had to be really terrible to not keep most of it.

I watched pretty much the entirety of Caroline in the City, because it was on at like 1:00 am and I was high and needed something to do. :ego

we need an eurojank/slavchunk style nickname for short lived 90s sitcoms (most of which were seemingly on NBC)

I unironically enjoyed that show. At least until they ruined it by putting Richard and Caroline together.

Holy shit @ some of these Seinfails I forgot, I think this is the only one worse than Union Square

The Paul Reiser Show is an American sitcom that originally aired on NBC. In May 2010, NBC announced that it had approved the series for the 2010–11 television season, with the half-hour comedy expected to premiere as a midseason replacement.[1] The series premiered on April 14, 2011, at 8:30 pm.[2] Due to extremely low ratings, the program was canceled on April 22, 2011, after only two episodes.[3]
