Fifty-Seven and Counting...

Fifty-Seven. That's the number for now. Honestly, I thought this was a new trend ("The Office", "Worst Week Ever", "Coupling"...shudder); boy was I wrong. I guess it's all about perception, here I thought that "All in the Family" and "Three's Company" were as American as apple pie. They're actually as American as fish and chips! Then again, they were both solid shows (the latter is debatable) that spawned spin-offs like "Three's a Crowd" and "The Jeffersons"; insofar as pop culture and marketability, those shows were hits. I don't mind Steve Carrell in "the Office", but it reminds me way too much of the originally; Ricky Gervais will always be the boss from hell. Still, it's not a bad translation.

Of course, for every "Sanford & Son", there's a "Coupling".

Shudder...
