Watching CNN's series on THE HISTORY OF COMEDY, which I have to say gives short shrift to too many things and the clips are too short, but it still reminds me of what TV shows that really nailed particular eras or issues. Although I enjoyed sitcoms in the fifties and sixties, they were not portraying the real world for most people. It was the ideal world or their idea of it. What shows were most honest in portraying life to you but at the same time were funny. I would choose Roseanne as one although my husband detests it. Or rather her. But that was how life was for a lower middle-class family in the eighties-nineties. This scene could be from most plays I have seen off-Broadway.
