Maybe it is TV

Everyone Fuckin’ Loves Raymond and the Naked Neighbor

Like most sane people, I am in constant awe of HBO (even though I didn’t quite understand the need to introduce a Western). I believe them when they say It’s not TV.

But the message could become less convincing as HBO moves into the dangerous realm of half hour sitcoms.

Let’s face it. This move either soils the HBO reputation and forever removes any and all hope we may have for the All in the Family days of yore.

Or it establishes HBO as the greatest thing ever to happen to television.

It will certainly answer the question, can swear words and nudity save the sitcom.

Concentration is important!
