The decade of sitcom-douchiness. It was as if the entire decade of the 1980’s was simply practice for the next 10 years of bad television and unoriginal actors. Music was ok, but TV and film had the most proportionate share of d-bags. How could we forget Jenna Elfman (Dharma and Greg), Dustin Diamond (Screech from Saved by the Bell) and the decade’s worst offender, Paul Reiser (Mad About You), the 1990’s top douche bag.
Perpetually smarmy without being funny, quippy without ever delivering a decent joke, and forever wearing that goddamned smug half-smile, Reiser is the yawning black hole in the sitcom universe.
