TV: Top 10 Comedies

F/X has really impressed me with their comedy programming. In the 90s, there was of course the indie film movement, and now that DIY, low budget mentality has reached television production, with It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia as the forefather, an F/X show. Interestingly enough, IFC, whose schedule had been saddled with a whole bunch of uninspired cliched spawns of the 90's indie film movement, is coming out with a whole bunch of indie half hour comedies like Portlandia. This underground TV trend is just starting, but in my opinion, I think the history of indie TV will prove to be far more interesting than that of indie films.
