Mostly Bs: Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Mostly As: Doctor Who.
You desire funny, and lots of it, which is why you must see Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, 14 seasons of which are on Netflix. If you havent seen it, you have lost out on one of the grimiest, most amoral comedies in tv history. One episode is called Mac Kills His Dad, for example. But even if you have actually seen the show, its worth rewatching from the beginning, if only for the scene where Danny DeVito crawls out of a sofa naked.
