What TV show have you rewatched more than 5 times and you still find entertaining?
By - MonkeyCapt
Futurama lulled me to sleep several nights. Probably watched the show way too much.
I've had Futurama on shuffle+repeat 24/7 for the past ~3 weeks. It's not even my longest stretch. If I had to guess, I've probably seen every episode more than 30 times.
Edit: To address a question I've gotten a few times, I purchased the DVD box set and ripped them all to my hard drive, and am watching them from said hard drive.
I literally have it on in the background right now as I’m trying to go to sleep! Didn’t know there was a whole community of people who did this
Hello? Pizza deliver for, uh... I.C. Wiener? Aw, crud.
Wow this exploded! How did a Futurama quote - which I just now realized contains a typo - become my highest voted comment of all time?
After 20 something years, I still don't know if that delivery was for I See Weiner or Icy Weiner...
I'm leaning towards Icy Wiener as a pun on the frozen persons in the cryogenic lab
This is further backed up by another prank order later: “Pizza delivery for... D. Frostedwang.”
What We Do in the Shadows. Always makes me laugh.
"It is like a weak ejaculation...eh, eh, eh, EH, Jeff."
I need to watch that show. The movie had my ribs hurting and I heard the show is at least just as good
"Guillermo, have you been killing vampires?"
I havent seen you since NEW YAHK CITAY
Jacky Daytona from Arizoña is my hero.
I hope we get at least 7 seasons. It’s just so good.
If you like Matt Berry (What We Do In The Shadows), check him out in Toast Of London.
Colin Robinson ad-libs many of his lines.
and I will never not use an opportunity to suggest [Garth Marenghi's Darkplace](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SH0Wms5-oNg), one of Matt Berry's [first acting gigs](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjOEcoMy2fI) and his first time on television.
Its a mockumentary about a Stephen King like character on a late 80s paranormal soap opera. Its an A+ parody imo
Garth's dark place is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Its glorious in ways you simply cannot explain. All the phone calls where the guy literally just picks up the phone and is given all the information he needs immediately to continue the plot is just hilarious. The purposefully bad acting is its greatest strengths. Along with the intro ofc.
Crêpe paper only has one correct pronunciation for me.
We're going to a superb owl party
If someone does something stupid my wife and I will look at each other and say “Fuucking guy” like Nandor.
Also greatest character was Jackie Daytona.
Jackie Daytona is a legend in my house. He really pulled it together for that local volleyball team
The money for state!!
Regular HUMAN bartender
Blackadder and What We Do in the Shadows.
Top tip for anyone with Disney+: by default, Disney chop the bottom and top of the frame off to make the Simpsons fit on wide-screen. However there's a little toggle button setting just for the Simpsons to show it in original format (with black bars at the sides). Flip that toggle!
Band of Brothers
Edit: glad to know there are so many people of impeccable taste here! Back when I doesn't have cable in the pre-streaming days I'd have it on constantly in the background while gaming. I always get a little sad at the end of Ep 10, because even though it's awesome that they're going home and the war is over, they're going their separate ways and wouldn't see each other again for a long time, or ever in some cases.
I also loved The Pacific, like many others here, but I didn't feel nearly as invested in the characters because it covered multiple regiments and companies, instead of focusing on one company for all ten episodes.
I had the pleasure of working at the retirement home that the actual Buck Compton lived. He was a very soft spoken man. And funny as hell too, the witty comments that came from that man we're endless.
Watch it once a year. “Captain sobel, we salute the rank not the man”
I still attest BoB is the finest piece of Ww2 media ever made
Band of Brothers is an all time favorite of mine, and if you like that I highly suggest generation war. World War 2 from the perspective of 5 German friends in Berlin. It has an incredible story from another side of the war
Hijacking this comment to make people aware that Hanks and Spielberg recently (more like “finally”) started production of another 10 episode mini-series about the Air Force’s “Mighty Eighth” in WWII. I believe it is going to be called “Masters of the Air”. Extremely excited for this!
Star Trek: The Next Generation
Edit: thank you for the awards and the awesome comments. I love how many other people love Star Trek.
Came for this answer. Next Generation and DS9 are both amazing time and time again
Malcolm in the Middle
Love when Dewey is dancing with his baby sitter in the kitchen (the golden girl who's name I can't remember because I'm uncultured) and she straight up dies on him and he just waves bye to the ambulance like no big deal
It’s Bea Arthur!
There was something in the air that night, the stars shined bright...Fernando
Not a single bad episode. Even the clip show is entertaining
I worked at a zoo. The zoo episode is accurate. That’s why it’s my favorite.
What is accurate about it?
Give me the dirty inside scoop abt zoos please!
"dirty inside scoop" sounds like a job description for working at the zoo
Literally just commented the same show, my girl hated it then she fell in love.best quotefor me in any show is from Reese, "maybe life is a roller coaster, you gotta go down so you can enjoy going back up, thats what makes it so fun"
My favorite is when Reese is cooking the giant meal, and has to take the turkey out at exactly the right time, but cant find the oven mitts, so he just bare-hands it. Then, while screaming in pain, looking for a place to set it down, goes over to the table and yells "MOVE THE OVEN MITTS!"
I have fits of laughter just thinking about that scene.
My favorite Reese moment was when Hal found the boys getting ready to do some kind of ridiculously dangerous shit.
Hal: You boys could have died!
Reese: Relax, I'm only 17.
Hal: So you can't die?
Reese: I just don't see it happening.
Fawlty Towers. A John Cleese masterpiece in visual comedy.
"Please try to understand before one of us dies."
"God knows how they got an armada together."
"Is Siberian Filigree Hamster."
"I speak English very well. I learn it from a book."
Those are just a few of the very many FT quotes that make it into my family's conversations frequently.
Don’t mention the war.
I mentioned it once but I think I got away with it alright
I agree! Every time I watch it, I always discover something new or find a new connection. I laugh so hard.
And a lot of running gags too. Like the Bluth's family Chicken Imitation and Her.
Has anyone is this family ever seen a chicken?
I think the show is the best for joke continuity
There's always money in the banana stand!
Lucille Bluth is ***the*** fucking icon tbh.
I love all my children equally...... I don't care for Gob
My favorite joke that they never draw attention to is Lupe, the maid, during holiday episodes is always wearing a sweater from the previous holiday. Just adding to the fact that she always gets the Bluth's hand me downs.
I must have watched it 20 times (1-3)
Always Sunny In Philadelphia
I’ve been poisoned by my constituents...
I got a touch of consumption.
Can I offer you a nice egg in these trying times
I feel like the egg line overshadows the preceding gem of “Ever been bit by a crab, hon?”
I have contained my rage for long enough, but I shall unleash my fury upon you like the crushing of a thousand waves! Be gone vile man, be gone! A starter car? This is a finisher car! A transporter of Gods. A golden god! I am untethered and my rage knows no bounds
My favorite episode is the one with the cat Jack Bauer. Born on a rusty piece of metal and in a pool of gasoline.
Idk if I can pick a favorite but Charlie dressing up as an oil man and doing that southern accent in the gas crisis episode is one of the funniest thing ive seen in my life.
Hell yeah! We wanna fill you up!
Not to mention it gave us the line that sent so many nights sideways “WILDCARD BITCHES!”
"What is that in the cup?" "Well, that's orange juice." "Like the mixer?? People drink straight mixer?" "Yep."
Kills me every time, it's so nonchalant and easy to miss.
That doesn’t sound right but I don’t know enough about stars to dispute it
This guys a 5 star man
Is your cat making too much noise all the time? Is your cat stomping around DRIVING YOU CRAZY?!
What are some of your likes?
Like collecting magnets or playing with magnets?
Just magnets, man!
I'm not! I'm putting travel! Jesus Christ, what are your dislikes?
Uhhh people's knees
Cover your knees up if you're gonna be walking around everywhere
Put milksteak she’ll know what it is
What’s your spaghetti policy?
I'm supposed to remember every man I've seen fall into a plate of spaghetti‽
What's your major dude?
Oh bet you read alot of Gordon wood huh you read your Gordon wood and you regurgitate it from the textbook and you think you're wicked awesome doing that, and how about them apples and all that Gordon wood business
Well, I don’t know how many years on this Earth I got left. I’m gonna get real weird with it.
Jesus Christ, Frank. Are you cutting your toenails with a steak knife?
Parks and Rec
You are a beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful musk ox.
Not now sunfish!
Eggs bacon and toast!
My favorite joke that took +10 rewatches to click
Ron: “How about we stand here and fish. And talk about parks projects?”
Jerry: “I got it! What if I run a teen abstinence workshop?”
Ron: “...that would be incredibly effective.”
“Gayle took my virginity when I was 26…”
Either this kid has a lightbulb up his butt or his colon has a great idea.
The show has the perfect combination of wholesome, funny, serious topics, friendship going so far it becomes slightly homo erotic and all the actors are sooooo good too.
The only downside is that I can't find a equally good show :(
Brooklyn 99 comes close but scrubs is still leagues ahead
Psych. It’s such a funny and well written show, that I can throw it on almost any episode and still get a good chuckle out of it.
You know that’s right
Did you hear about Pluto?
“Don’t go boneless on me Shawn!”
It’s amazingly written and the guest stars are fantastic. I always feel so bad for Curt Smith but at the same time his scenes are hysterically written.
You heard about Pluto?
That's messed up, right?
This is my partner Gus T.T. Showbiz. The Extra T is for Extra Talent!
Don’t be exactly one half of a black Forrest ham
Gus, don't be the rack of ribs that flips over the Flintstones' car.
Another Pysch movie is in the making as well! :D I’m so excited!
Brooklyn 99, Community and Futurama for sure. Hard part is deciding which one to watch
99 is pretty great but community is probably my all time favorite show. It's my go to when I can't find something to watch.

It’s never lupus!
Except that one time it was. What a fuckin curve ball.
Correction - it’s always lupus!
I came here to find some new shows but I'm just ignoring everything I've not seen and just just going 'Yep!' to the good shows I have seen. Reddit is weird.

0118, 999, 881, 999, 119, 725....3
"The Work Outing" is my favorite episode of any show I've ever seen.
A gay musical...called “Gay.” That’s quite gay.
The countdown episode is my absolute favorite. The A plot and B plot are both amazing and it ends with an amazing joke about window washing.
My favorites are when they have the work outing and roy pretends to be disabled and when roy dates julia and she says her parents died in a fire at a sea parks
"A fire? At a sea parks?!"
and the reveal that Moss is working the bar in The Work Outing. The way they kept him out of the episode for just long enough to forget what he was doing and then reveal him again broke me.
That part was perfect. I’ve never laughed out loud so hard at a sitcom before that.
"It must be so hard to be gay and disabled."
People, what a bunch of bastards.
Did you see that ludicrous display last night?
What was Wenger thinking sending Walcott on that early?
The thing about arsenal is they always try to walk it ind
They're having a laugh.
Hooray. He's kicked the ball.
Now the ball's over there.
That man has it now.
That's an interesting development.
Maybe he'll kick the ball.
He has indeed and apparently
that deserves a round of applause.
Good morning, that's a nice tnettenba.
This is without a doubt my favourite scene!
Second favourite is:
At a Seaparks?!
The way Denham went out was so unexpected, just from the meta standpoint of how you expect a show to treat it's key characters. I absolutely loved that episode.
When Douglas finds the revolver and the letter mentioned he jumped out of the window.
Watching it right now. Same as every other night. I especially appreciate the bangers they make for the end credits, u can’t tell me the “Burobu” theme doesn’t slap
Man that song gets in my head! Also the Bleaken song too.
There’s rarely a day where I don’t belt out an “awwww topsy at my auuuutopsy!”
This is my comfort show.
A couple years ago I got food poisoning and needed something to distract my mind so I binge-watched Bob's Burger's to get me through it. Linda had a quote in the episode where they go camping (A River Runs Through Bob) that stuck with me because it perfectly described my state: "You're firing from both ends, I studied the ballistics."
Infinite rewatchability. I love trying to catch messages on the study room whiteboard.
Six seasons and a movie!!
I award this person 5 meowmeowbeenz

I've watched community 7 times. My life has become consumed with me constantly making community references, it's damaged my friendships and my mental health. I'm getting my friends to watch it so they can understand me better.
Avatar The Last Airbender. I find at least a few things I never noticed with every watch.
Just finished my fifth watch through. Blows me away every time.
The writing and character building is some of the best of any TV show ever. I'm so glad I had kids, because I would never have given it any attention otherwise. My first watch through I was like 32 years old.
My wife and I go through it roughly once a year. It's pretty hard to top Zuko's character arc, not just in that show but in general.
I’m just watching it for the first time. Usually I’m on my phone ignoring my daughter’s shows, but I’m entirely focused for this
During my last rewatch, Tophs line - "Do you really think friendships can last more than one lifetime?" hit like a ton of bricks.
Most people I know think it’s overly formal and weird. I’ve always thought it was hilarious and always will.
It is overly formal and weird. That's why it's great.
Hands down the funniest single TV episode (imo) is the episode where they all go to the ski lodge with the crazy love.. Quadrangle (s05e14).. Fuck it's so good
Who writes a bedroom farce anymore much less getting all the tropes dead on and squeezes the format into a sitcom? The writers on Frasier were goddamn experts.
"The Show Must Go Off-"The one where they produce Hamlet with a washed-out actor(whose talents they overestimated) is the pinnacle of farce. I love it when Sir Derek Jacobi,(an actual Shakespearian actor) hams up his lines. *chef's kiss*.
>Ohhhhhh, I die, Horatio!
When meeting Martin :
>Ahhh! You must be the Crane pater. It is a pleasure to encounter the head waters whence spring these twin rivers upon which I have launched my humble craft.
When Frasier confronts Niles with some opinion he had as a teenager:
Niles: "Well, back then I also thought the 1812 Overture was a great piece of classical music!"
Frasier: "You were never that young."
That show was unsurpassed at "comedy of errors" plots! Like when the new co-worker thinks Fraser is gay.
I'm rewatching it right now and the episode where Daphne's ex comes to visit and she pretends Niles is her husband is gold. Frasier's dad gets in on it and pretends he's an astronaut. Roz is Maris and married to Frasier...it goes on. So fucking funny to me!
Or that episode when they go to the play and that guy thinks Martin is gay and goes back to their apartment with him, then Niles comes home and Martin pretends he’s his boyfriend. 😂
Clive: You're having a baby?! When you were planning on springing that news?
Daphne: We don't like to bring that up. It's a sore point around here, what with my sister-in-law being barren and all.
Niles: Now, now, it's not her fault. You see, my brother is impotent.
I can't even count the number of times I've watched Fraiser through. Great show.
Had to scroll down way too far to find this.
Growing up, M*A*S*H used to show every night at 6:30, and we'd watch it every night after supper. For a while, another channel showed another episode at 8 pm, and we'd watch that too. Mondays we'd get a new episode at 9. Ten to eleven episodes a week, over and over for years, from the late 70s straight through to the early 90s.
I don't know how many times I've seen each episode, but it feels like hundreds. I just assume that everyone has seen and knows every episode too. It's always jarring to meet someone who openly admits to have never seen an episode. It's like meeting an alien.

Had to scroll too far to find this. That show will never get old, and it will never stop being thrilling and entertaining.
That show came out at an interesting time because society was changing in a way that do many of of the WW2 generation couldn't handle and were fighting against. Golden Girls comes out with many preconceived biases that they were forced to analyze their own past opinions to try and show the change was for the better. You look at a conservative character like Rose, she was forced to look at her own sexuality in a completely different way than just being a typical housewife from the Midwest.
Picture it, Sicily 1912
Hasn't been scrolling down for sometime to find The wire!
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Except The Body. I don't know if I ever want to watch that one again.
I’ve watched the whole series through a few times. I loved it as a young adult
Can’t believe this is so far down, I’ve rewatched it multiple times.
Freaks and Geeks
The frequency and creativity of jokes is unmatched. They have some very killer cameos.
Someone did the math and found that 30 Rock averages 7.44 jokes per minute, which is one of the things that makes it great for a rewatch - I’ll often discover new jokes that I missed the last time because I was too busy laughing at a different joke!
Man that’s a crazy rate of jokes, I think I’m due for a rewatch. I remember talking to a couple of friends in like 2018 and they were saying they didn’t think that 30 Rock was aging well. We then went and watched an episode from like 2013 where they called out Harvey Weinstein, which was super relevant in 2018. Personally I think the show has aged well, even if they have a couple of dated jokes here and there, the number of timeless quality jokes more than makes up for it
I wanna take this show behind the school and get it pregnant
Smooth move, Ferguson.
