Have any TV shows changed your life?

Like watching a particular TV series changed, who you are, how you think, etc... ?
It's the principle, just like when Rosa Parks stole that bus!

I won a $500,000 on "Who Wants to Threadcrap?" Sadly, c-man took the big money on that show.

South Park, The Simpsons and Seinfeld have made me a cynical ruthless bastard and I love it. They refined my personality to the potent friend repelling one it is today!

Don't know if I would be a lawyer if it wasn't for L.A. Law.

Wow, letting a TV show change the way you live, think and breath...that's almost as bad as letting some elderly gentleman who talks to you for a half hour every Sunday morning do the same...

No. There are a lot of tv shows I love, but none have really changed me. The movie Paradise Lost did though. I was pro death penalty until I saw it, and now I'm not (although I would be the first to say I'm not sure whether the kids convicted in that movie were guilty or innocent--they sure got hosed during their trial though.)

Three's Company taught me it's not good to eavesdrop on other people's conversations (too bad no one on that show ever learned that...).

Oh, and this summer's deluge of reality/"talent"/dating/wedding shows has given me a lot more free time to spend in real life, so I guess that counts for something.
