TV Sitcoms
Throughout the years TV sitcoms have made drastic changes. Not all of these changes have been for the better. We are now left wondering what happened to the morality in sitcoms. While changes in TV sitcoms are not always welcomed by everyone, the changes will keep coming. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do except make the decision which sitcoms are acceptable for our families to view and then turn off the rest.
Over the years we have seen many TV sitcoms come and go. While some of the sitcoms lasted years there were a few that only made it for one or two seasons. You can still find some of the older sitcoms showing reruns like “Mash”, “All in the Family”, and “The Jefferson’s”.   How sad it is that our younger generation won’t watch the reruns because they consider them boring. At least our older generation can still watch reruns of their favorite sitcoms.
In the past, most of the TV sitcoms like “Leave it to Beaver”, “Father Knows Best”, and “Andy Griffith” would show the viewers about strong family values and morals. The episodes would show things like a father teaching his child how to ride a bike, parents teaching their children that their actions will always have consequences, or parents comforting an upset child. Viewers could always rely on the sitcom like “I Love Lucy” for a good laugh. You could always depend on Lucy and Ethel to do something hilarious and crazy. While sitcoms like “Bewitched” or “I Dream of Jeannie” could show viewers how to use their imagination. Viewers could imagine themselves being able to twitch their nose and end up in Paris or fold their arms and blink their eyes with a nod of the head and turn someone into a puppy. TV sitcoms in the past taught us the value of the things in our daily lives like money, family, and homes. They also helped teach our children right from wrong.
In the present we have TV sitcoms like “The New Christine”, “Two and a Half Men”, and “How I Met Your Mother” that don’t have any morals....
