QotD 2007-05-25: Your Starring Role


Recommended Posts

Assume for the moment that you could make yourself appear as an ongoing character in a real television show (past or present; in particular, it would have to be a story-based/fiction show [like a sitcom], as opposed to a reality-based show). Which show would it be and why?

For me, I think it'd be The Muppet Show, ideally as a musician (the orchestra, probably) or sound engineer for Dr. Teeth And The Electric Mayhem Orchestra. The things I like about The Muppet Show include its sense of whimsy and wonder, the way flat-out weirdness is not only tolerated but celebrated, and how it all makes sense; add in the great music, and the chance to meet and work with the awesome guest stars they had, and I'm hooked.

Mr. Carlson; WKRP.

The guy doesn't have a care in the world, because he's too out of it to know better. He runs a rock radio station and is financially secure. His biggest issue in life is to decide which fishing lure to use the following weekend.

What more can you want?
