Best laugh-out-loud TV shows for engineers, by engineers

The irreverent animated series "Rick and Morty" makde the top ten list of engineers' favorite TV shows.

Our previous list of best TV shows according to engineers skewed heavily toward dystopian science fiction plots. Some are so bleak, they make what’s going on in the real world seem a little less scary.

This list features far lighter fare, because frankly we’re all in need of a good laugh. Better yet, many of these shows are oldies-but-goodies, with multiples of seasons available—679 episodes of The Simpsons alone!--which should keep you busy for some time to come.

Here’s the list—in rank order--of the top 10 comic series, along with a brief synopsis of each. 

So, pop some popcorn, grab the remote, and settle in for a bingefest of fun this weekend. You’ve earned it.
