Exactly how many shows about nothing are there?  Is there an Emmy award for "Outstanding show/musical about nothing"?

Seinfeld was really the only show to promote itself as being about nothing. Although Cheers was a very good show about very little.

Isn't it technically impossible to have a show about nothing? Seinfeld wasn't about nothing...it's about a guy in an apartment block. A show about nothing would mean the show couldn't go out on the air, and couldn't exist.

Cheers wasn't about nothing!  At least not during the Shelley Long years.  The plot gradually pissed away after Kirstey Alley replaced her.

Most of the episodes I saw were after Alley joined, so I think my opinion is still justified

'Porridge' was hardly ever based on anything too big. An entire episode based on a tin of pineapple chunks is an example. Still bloody funny though.

How can it be justified when it's based on such one-sided evidence?  Watch the first couple of seasons before passing judgement.

Now you know how I feel about Voyager.  wink

I suppose if I were to define the title as "Favourite show about something which has little consequence", then it would probably be Futurama or TNG.  tongue

I do have a fondness for the test patterns. You have to get up early but dammit it's worth it! Who else loves the one with the girl and the puppet playing noughts and crosses? Oh, and static's good too.

Remember the one with the Indian?  Do they even use that one anymore?

There was this show on british TV a couple of years ago called Nobel and Silva which genuinely was about nothing. They did one episode which was about the making of itself!

So we're in agreement that Voyager is a show about nothing?  tongue
