what's changed YOUR life?

I love People magazine. I also really enjoy special issues created by the lovely writers of People (ex. People "Style", yearbooks, etc.). While standing in a mile-long line at the grocery store the other day (isn't that how you love spending your day?), I picked up the recent edition:It was at least $10 to purchase, and, well, I'm just a poor teacher, so I opted against buying it. BUT I flipped through it long enough enough to see a few of the shows that were included.
Not surprisingly, Jerry Seinfeld's picture is at the very top. If you know me well, you know that "Seinfeld" gets my #1 vote of life-changing television shows!
A few others included:
Happy Days, Golden Girls, The Brady Bunch, Cheers, Andy Griffith, Friends, Dallas, Star Trek, Buffy, All In the Family, The Cosby Show, M*A*S*H, Mary Tyler Moore, Sex and the City, Melrose Place, GLEE, American Idol, etc. etc. etc.
Some of the said shows were well before my time, so I can't say I know much about TV shows before the mid 80's, but if I were to create my life-changing shows, (ok, ok, "life-changing" may sound a little bold. Can I just safely say my "favorite" shows of all time??) would include:
Seinfeld
The Office
Desperate Housewives (which I'm SURE makes my mom so proud!)
American Idol
And while I may not have watched much Golden Girls during its day, I must admit that nothing beats watching reruns now, so I'm going to have to include GG on my list, too.
So, I ask you. What television shows have changed YOUR life?
Yeah. So, I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to go back and get this magazine now....

I'm going to go with Seinfeld as my number 1 show of all time. I still quote it a LOT to this day. I also adored I dream of Jeannie - oh and Love Boat and Fantasy Island. I'm showing my age here.

PS - why no blog about your loss to Auburn.... cough

I don't think any have "changed my life," but I do love Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie. :)
