A long time ago, in a land not so far away ... in fact, right here ... funny and intelligent television was actually "regular" television. You did not have to pay $44.95 a month just to be able to watch something that would be just the right kind of funny (one of the ways to identify this form of funny is to be able to laugh at all the right places without the canned laughter). I know it's hard to imagine this while living in today's world of - euphemistically speaking - incredibly mediocre TV, but believe me, I have proof. This proof lies in the episodes of a beautifully crafted, gem of a show called Mad About You.
I could write tomes about how good this show is but I don't want to be one of those fans. Just watch it.
