    So popular that Harrison wrote a song about it…

    I haven't watched TV for decades, so I'm an outsider in this discussion, but I can offer an observation. There are some "forms" for shows, the first of which I came to notice is where there are three main characters with specific attributes:

    - central character, the leader, some kind of authority
    two side kicks
    - there is a second character that typically looks/acts a little weird/goofy, has some peculiarity in appearance, unusual sounding name, and some kind of special knowledge
    - there is a third character with a nickname, professional often some medical aspect
    The side kick characters fuss and antagonize each other.

    Examples...

    Gunsmoke
    Matt Dillon - Marshall
    Festus - goofy, ears, rural wisdom
    "Doc" - medical man with nickname

    Star Trek
    James Kirk - Captain
    Spock - weird, ears, science wisdom
    "Bones" - medical man with nickname

    Cheers
    Sam - Cheers bar owner
    Cliff - goofy, ears, trivia wisdom
    "Norm" - accountant, chorus of "Norm!" is self same nickname

    Seinfeld
    Jerry - ring leader and authority on life
    Kramer - goofy, name (Cosmo), bizarre wisdom
    George - medical aspect is "inverted" (hypochondriac), nicknames - Biff, Art Vandelay, Koko, T-Bone, Can't-Stand-Ya...

    You will likely recognize this form in dozens of popular shows through the years with many variations. I guess they're still using it?

    The above is why AI software can write the basis plot of a T.V. show, as well as much of the dialog.

    In the middle of Who Is Erin Roberts? About a teacher/soccer mom who is more than she lets on to be. And kicks some serious a$$ when she needs to.

    Typically ubercompetent British series on Netflix. Action-packed. 6 episodes, so not like it's a life commitment (I'm looking at you, Sopranos and GOT).
