    This show was so far ahead of it's time -- I think we could use something like it today.

    I was hoping for YouTube videos of said moments (not Janet's boob).

    I remember seeing that episode for the first time, particularly the "mammy" part.

    Good stuff.

    Seinfeld for breaking the mold a bit.

    Arrested Development.

    All the horrible reality shows.

    Man vs Beast on Fox was ahead of its time. This was one of the many highlights.

    1. I love Lucy
    It was groundbreaking for how it was shot onstage with a live audience - it was the first multi-camera sitcom and it set a new standard for decades. Plus it was the first interracial couple on TV

    2. Star Trek
    A black woman and an Asian man as major cast members with white people in the 60s. Was very controversial...and only got more controversial with the "Platos Stepchildren" episode that was banned in the south due to the first Interracial kiss (someone posted the pic above).

    3. All in the Family
    No description needed - OP covered it with the video

    4. The Brady Bunch
    The husband and wife share a bed!! OMG really? Lol

    5. Hill Street Blues
    Pushed the standards for cursing and nudity on air

    6. Will and Grace
    Where Soap, Dear Sidney, and Rossanne left off, Will and Grace took off with Gays on TV

    For me it was channel 77 back when it was all squiggly. Sometimes you can even make out a boob or two.
