I admit it. I stole this question from the DirecTV Facebook feed.

Those four, about equal - take them or leave them.

 

In each of those eras there were better shows (to me).

Definitely M*A*S*H of the 4, though I can't watch the nightmare episode, freaks me out too much.

The choices were Beverly Hillbillies, M*A*S*H, Bewitched, Andy Griffith. Then the follow up if Bewitched obviously would be York or Sargent? Though I'm sure most would say York.

None of the above. In fact, not one was ever one of my five favorite when they were in first run.

 

But I give The Beverly Hillbillies credit for making two of the best  cast selections ever.  Jethro is my all-time favorite adult male dolt, and that is saying something, because adult male dolts displaced dumb blonds half a century ago but none have matched Jethro for being able to get laughs every week just for saying the same things over and over and over.

 

And with all due respects to Jethro, Granny is the irreplaceable cast member, as there never has been a character of her age that displayed that much spunk.

My vote is M*A*S*H.

I voted for M*A*S*H, of course. I didn't throw a 'last episode' party for any of the others.

Full disclosure, having served in Korea myself didn't influence my vote whatsoever, nor

did having had a romantic liaison with a pretty Korean girl. :alterhase

Ok I see the choices on my home computer. Some reason they dont show up on my iPhone. But my choice is MASH.

 

I liked MASH until the last few seasons.

Good point.  The earlier seasons were much better.  I had forgotten.
