Thanks propelas, i missed that one, list updated :)
Posted: 3 years ago at Jul 30 23:17
yay! I watch smart people shows... aaaand a few other shows that obviously dont require much intelligence lol

South Park and How I Met Your Mother? Really?
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Sep 4 18:18
@sleepless101, Regarding to south park, I should remind you that creativity implies failure; many SP episodes are pieces of shit yet there are creative and funny ones which really merit praises. For HIMYM, first season is funny, not stupid funny like some others, and it has a unique character that already took his place in the pop-culture; Barney Stinson. Considering all of these, I believe they deserve to be on this list

How does creativity imply failure? Just wondering.
Posted: 2 years, 11 months ago at Sep 16 11:30
@Lex,because in order to be creative you have to take risks; think out-of-box, try the untried, break the old paradigms... If you consider all the movies, songs, plays ( applies to business innovations as well) etc. you see that successful ones are just the %5(even less), namely breakthroughs, rest %95 is mediocre and failure. Therefore creativity, and innovation, has high risk in its nature and in many cases ends up with failure.

It lacks Six Feet Under.
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at Sep 6 16:42
I think this list is missing a lot of shows, but I guess it comes down to exactly what constitutes "smartness". Kudos for "Cosmos"...that was a great series and a general science/astronomy/cosmology primer for anyone who's interested.

If we're talking smart shows, why not Through the Wormhole?
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at Sep 6 18:06
Thanks for your ideas!!! @Liaison, good suggestion to add on the list thanks. @burnodo great comment, I would love to hear some of those missing shows. @Wordasbombs, excellent recommendation, I have not watched it yet but sure I'll give it a try very soon.

How I met Your Mother and the Big Bang Theory are the stupidest shows ever made and aren't even funny

This list needs some "Firefly!!"
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at Sep 25 12:56
Excellent choices!

How I Met Your Mother and Big Big Theory you understand they are shows for the dumb.
