Worst Film(s) Ever: How about TV? (Enrique Torner, USA, 06/22/18 4:50 am)

Worst film ever? This is an easy one--my pick is bad, yet hilarious, and I laugh my head off. 

But it's not a movie.

It's a TV show, and very old, but given the average age of WAISers, many might remember it: Get Smart.  I doubt our moderator has seen it. You can see many episodes on YouTube. Laughter is great medicine for physical, emotional, and spiritual "disease," so I should watch it more often. For some odd reason, we watched it a week ago with our two daughters (10 and 15), who had never watched it, and they loved it!

Our youngest one kept saying: "He's so dumb!" It was even more fun seeing them laugh so hard as well. Check it out!

JE comments:  Ah, bad television--is the term itself a redundancy?  You've opened Pandora's Box, Enrique.  I have seen some episodes of Get Smart.  And yes, in the immortal words of Leonard Pinth-Garnell, it's "irredeemably bad."

Two of my selections for BTV (bad television) are Canadian:  the unintentionally funny DIY series from the early '80s, Do It for Yourself, and the unwatchable teen drama from later in the decade:  Degrassi Junior High.  Lest I be labelled Canadophobic, one of my favorite shows is also from north of the border:  Kids in the Hall.
