I don't think TV ever got better than this. Things that try like Danger 5 just don't work, and the rest is just with the zombies and the vampires and the hootin' and the hollerin "light me on fire for money" bullpoops.

Danger 5's first season totally did work, but it's second season leaned so hard into that 80's shit and was filmed like a fever dream that it forgot that you need a solid foundation of...well, not normal, but at least grounded in certain rules in order to make the absurd stuff funny. That second season was just absurd with no foundation, thus suffered greatly for it.

The absurd will always need the normal or it just doesn't work. That's what made this show so fucking hilarious. Plus, this had WAY more script gags than I remembered, too.

Seconding Aelric and his opinions on "Danger 5". Though Johnny Hitler will always be hilarious to me. I like season 2 the best if I remember this and ditch most of everything else:

Garth Marenghi's Darkplace is the only contender I know of.

I think both Police Squad and Danger 5 are really funny. I guess we'll have to wait 30 years and see if Danger 5 still holds up, because after that long Police Squad is just as funny as it ever was.

Danger 5 is funny, but I think it's what happened if Police Squad stayed on the air for longer. D5 is weird for me because this girl I was seeing had Netflix and wanted to watch something stupid and I suggested Iron Sky and Danger 5 and I think she thought I was some Nazi apologist.

First time seeing any Police Squad, brilliant! Bravo!
