Q:

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?

-Snow

A:

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.
