Know-It-All, Busy-Body Neighbors
An oft-used TV trope is the nosy, superior neighbor(s). The ones who want to know everybody's business and expect you to do things exactly the way they want, because they think they are always right and know the best way to do everything. Harriet Oleson was one such character. Played with aplomb by seasoned Broadway actress Katherine MacGregor, Mrs. Oleson (always called Mrs. Oleson, never Harriet except by her long-suffering husband Nels) was the best-known and longest-running character on Little House on the Prairie (1974) outside of the Ingalls family. Scottie MacGregor, as she was known most of her career, recently passed away at age 93, after living for many years at the Motion Picture Fund Long Term Nursing Care facility in Woodland Hills, CA. She was a devout Hindu and was known by the actors from Little House, particularly the children, as a caring, funny mentor. In honor of Scottie MacGregor and the perfectly horrible Harriet Oleson, which of these know-it-all, busy-body nosy TV neighbors would you most hate to live next to? Want to talk about it?

Favorite 90s Sitcom
From Wikipedia- A situation comedy, or sitcom, is a genre of comedy centered on a fixed set of characters who carry over from episode to episode. Sitcoms can be contrasted with sketch comedy, where a troupe may use new characters in each sketch, and stand-up comedy, where a comedian tells jokes and stories to an audience. Sitcoms originated in radio, but today are found mostly on television as one of its dominant narrative forms. This form can also include mockumentaries. Which Sitcom that premiered between 1990-1999 would you call your favorite? Discuss 90s Sitcoms Here
