SITCOM DRAFT interest thread

Time for a new draft...and sitcoms seem ripe for the picking!

Rules:

A sitcom is a television show that is mostly a comedy and whose standard episode no more than 30 minutes long.
Hour or longer shows do not make the grade. So no Ally McBeal-type shows.
Web series are eligible, if all other standards are met.
Sub-shows are eligible - shorter shows in longer anthology-type series.
Shows within a show are also eligible.

Any other rules we should consider?

Who's in?

Re: SITCOM DRAFT interest thread

I'm so not a TV person. I'd just be picking [undrafted] the whole time because the plot line and every character is perfect, plus the show is still ****ing hilarious and relevant after 30+ years.

I'll watch along and troll all the picks though, so I'm sort of in!

Re: SITCOM DRAFT interest thread

Are you drafting current and historical sitcoms, or people to be in one?

I'm thinking of just drafting shows, but if you want to come up with a draft that drafts characters, go for it.

When you write it in all caps, "SITCOM" sounds like a cool military acronym. Like "Attention all hands: we are at SITCOM Delta, this is not a drill!"

I love old sitcoms but have never really cared much for drafts.

I'd be down but only so I could join in on the praise for Arrested Development and preach my Scrubs is worthy of a short list thing.

I once heard that Scrubs is the most realistic of the hospital shows. I'm too ignorant to know if that's true.
