TV Guide

1.

 

Young Philadelphian switches coasts to live

with Uncle Phil, three cousins, and Aunt Viv.

 

2.

 

Kind Paula's gentle to this singer's flaws,

but snarky Simon holds back his applause.

 

3.

 

A bigot in an armchair, dingbat spouse,

blonde daughter, meathead son-in-law: one house.

 

4.

 

Radar hears choppers, Hawkeye's had a drink,

Winchester's stuffy, Klinger's wearing pink.

 

5.

 

The Dibley parish council starts to bicker

when Geraldine becomes the latest vicar.

 

6.

 

A pair of sibling shrinks. Dad with bad legs.

Sweet Daphne. Tossed salad and scrambled eggs.

I haven't watched TV in so many decades now I couldn't pick up on all the numbered bullets' references here ... but got #1 'cause I saw a few episodes way back when before I just completely stopped watching TV, and got #2 from YouTube. The rest, really don't know, sorry... but nonetheless, love the way you constructed this one. T'es un de mes préférés, merci de partager :)

Thomas, I was able to get them all but number 5. I had to look that one up. I really enjoyed this. I loved the last one especially. The tossed salad and scrambled eggs kept ringing in my ears until I heard the singers voice. Then I got it! :D This was fun!
