Dear 100 Hour Board,

I love the show "Once Upon a Time" because it is really clean but not stupid and very high quality. I feel the same with "August Rush". Do you know of other shows that are aimed toward adults that don't have language or too much sexual content and are not stupid?



Dear Snow,

I read this question to my roommates while we watched TV the other night and here are the shows they came up with during the commercial break:

  • Psych
  • Monk
  • White Collar 
  • Duck Tales (admittedly, not aimed toward adults)
  • The Tick (ditto)
  • iCarly (again, it's a kids show, but it's oddly addictive)
  • The original Twilight Zone
  • SportsCenter
This list is not comprehensive. They also mentioned Seinfeld (most episodes are great, but there are some that would likely make you uncomfortable) and The Simpsons (this show got a bad rap in the early 90s, but it's really pretty good. There are a few mild swear words and a few mild innuendos, but it's pretty wholesome compared to much of what's on prime-time TV these days).

Dear Malicia,

I suddenly keep hearing of this Once Upon a Time thing, but I still have no idea what it is. Anyway. Option: Merlin! Totally my latest passion in life. In terms of movies, I have many that I could suggest to you, but I'm just going to stick with two: Sweet Land and Finding Neverland. I hope you have seen the latter, but I'll be pretty surprised if you've already seen the former.
