I am a huge fan of TV sitcoms. Not the PC ones like Modern Family (Which I do like sorta) or what ever other crap ABC and CBS have on lately, I’m talking real deal push the envelope sitcoms. The kind with a family, a few kids, a wife and a Dad or Grandpa who bring it all together. I made a top 5 list for these great men who do not get the shine they deserve.
SIDENOTE: I have to make this because most of you are dumb and don’t read everything and will just comment how I missed Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin. I am leaving out cartoon Dads, if you comment that Peter or Homer were left out after this sidenote, do me a favor. Go grab a spoon, set your stove top to high. Put the spoon on the stove top for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes find someone to hold your eye lids open and stick that spoon on your eye-ball you fucking moron. Thank you, here is the top 5.
5. Louis CK- Lucky Louie
So this one was kinda hard for me to add. Louis CK is one of the funniest human beings ever. He makes me laugh out loud and Lucky Louie was a riot of a TV show. He was perfect it was written perfect and being on HBO made it all the better. My issue with putting Louis on here was well…. He sorta kinda is a big time sexual abuser. Really no other way to say it, he forced women to watch him jerkoff by using his power of fame over them and that is bad, that is very very bad. You may not see him on TV ever again so this is probably his biggest accomplishment since his life was ruined. Congrats?
4. Frank Costanza
What a legend of the game. One of the originals and one of the best. Frank Costanza ladies and gentleman. There is not much I can say that has not already been said. A timeless classic. Serenity now! Just sit and watch.
3. Frank Reynolds
This was tough to not have Frank at number 1 or 2. Frank Reynolds is the kind of character that brings the entire show of Always Sunny together. Would they still be successful without him? Yes. Would the show be an all time great? Well, yes. However without Frank it just would not be the same. His love for guns, his love for getting the gang out of situations with his money and the time he made a new gang and got their bar closed down. Frank is one of the best, if Always Sunny goes off the air, well… I’ll just kill myself.
2. Frank Barone
Frank Barone does not get enough credit for being one of the funniest not only TV dads, but just TV characters ever. Everybody Loves Raymond was an all time classic and is still funny today. When Frank showed up you knew you were going to laugh out loud. The way he talked to his wife, his one liners and how mean he was to Ray and Robert. RIP Frank, you are missed.
Sidenote: lot of funny dads named Frank.
1. Al Bundy
Was there ever a question? Ever for one second do you have to question who would be number one. It’s Al Fuckin Bundy. The original, the man who started it all. If Al was on TV today maybe our country wouldn’t be so soft, maybe people would be a little tougher, a little more fun, but they’re not. Al Fuckin Bundy, no words needed. The best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be.
PS- Other bloggers at Branded thought Phil Dunphy should be number one, imagine thinking Phil Dunphy could compete with this list! Couldn’t be me.
Let me wobble back to my corner, Joe Pa knew.
