Anyone can post here, but I'm sure that most posters will be women. What is your favorite so-called "Girly Show"? Y'know, a show like "The Golden Girls" or "Designing Women" that had stories that appealed to women but could have also been watched by men. Soap operas and talk shows that fit in this catergory are up for discussion as well.
BTW, my favorite is probably "The Golden Girls".

I used to watch Designing Women a lot.  I think that mainly it was because I have a thing for Annie Potts, but I also think that it's a funny show.

If we're talking about "girly" shows I should also mention that I like Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura.

My fave Girly show would be Sex In The City. I really like it and it’s enjoyable to watch.

I saw every episode of Ally McBeal and I rarely miss an episode of Sex And The City. So somewhere along the way, I wasn't taught to watch masculine programs.  red face

 At any rate, I still keep up with S&TC although its formulaic nature is way more than apparent to me now. But with one season remaining I might as well watch it to the end.  tongue

S&TC infuriates me for some reason
but I quite liked Ally McBeal although I kind of stopped bothering to watch properly by the time her daughter showed up and bon jovi was on the show

 Because it's very limited in it's humour, perhaps?
 Billy West was talking on his forum about how there's more than one type of funny, which I think is a good point because when I look at a lot of comedy now, I notice a lot more how many shows are limited to one particular style of comedy (or in the case of shows like Graham Norton, one joke  tongue). And Sex And The City is very much restricted to relationships and sex, so after a while it does become somewhat predictable.

Yeah, the last season was very much the show's shark jumping moment. Thank god it was the last.  smile

Girly shows?

Not manly enough for me.

I do watch Sex and D'City (it's pretty clever, for girls... oooh, burn!) if there's nothing else on and if I'm too lazy/comfy to get off my arse.
I definatly don't identify with New York posh women though...

I've never watched Sex and the City before, but I hear good things about it.

I dont watch all that much TV, so girly shows dont really come into the equation. Although, as ashamed as I am to say, I do like watching 'Delia Smith's How To Cook'. Yeah, ok, I'll admit, I like a few select cooking programs. I like cooking. I just wish I could, I'm really bad at it...   frown

Does Friends count as a girly show?
I mean, I suppose it's more of a Universal thing now. But when it started out, and it wasn't quite as big as it has become, it was mainly watched by the girls in my class at school (ah school, good times........wait!?).
I remember my friend Daniel did't like the show and would tease Frances and Alison for liking it. I had never heard of 'Friends' (this was a long time ago OK) so I just pretended to hate it too. Anyway I got hooked on it when I "accidently" tuned in.
Friends has been one of my favourite shows for years now, I like it enough to buy the DVDs anyway.
It also supports my theory that ALL good TV shows begin with the letter F. Futurama, Friends, the Fast Show.........uh,the Fimpsons, the Fopranos. I need to work on my theory.

No thats not why. I just despise the characters for one reason, and it to me just seems really trashy and stupid but comes off intellgent and so gets critics reviewing it as a sophisticated show.

I like Boston Public.  Is that supposed to be girly?  I never noticed.  Not that I would care either way...

I've seen a few episodes of Joan of Arcadia.  It's interesting, but I'm not that clear on the premise of the show.  Is she supposed to be a modern-day version of Joan of Arc, or just a girl who talks to God?

I've only seen Friends a few times, and I'm sure it appeals more to the female demographic, but I wouldn't immediately dismiss it as "girly".

The same way I explain funny jokes on Friends. Not real--you must have just imagined it or something.

And with eleventy billion cable channels, networks can afford to be narrow.

Or when her hair was falling out in clumps while giving her boyfriend a blowjob?  Bam!  Instant flaccidity.

That scene managed to be the only time I've seen any of that show.  I was pretty traumatized.

"Gillmore Girls" has some snappy dialog, but I still haven't managed to sit through an entire episode.

I don't really know of any except Sex and the City.

What about movies such as The Green Mile or Stand By Me, both of which I like a great deal, are they girly films?

Eh, not too keen on them. Sex in the city would be my favourite I guess.

Ooh, no wait...she-RA! and Smack the Pony  big grin

I was reading "the face" the other day and noticed a quote from MG saying
 
Quote
Matt Groening, what's your favourite British TV comedy?
"I love the Office and Smack the Pony. It proves women can be funny. Particuarly when falling over.

obviously good taste but was there ever any doubt?
