I suggested All in the Family, but M*A*S*H would be even better.

Or we could go REALLY old school and do either The Honeymooners or I Love Lucy. \:D/

How about the KPMA—if "K" is for "kaiju"? :/

I heard that Paramount only charges the Federation Envoys. \Y/

And doddering old Sith lords.

The Andy Griffith Show is a really funny and fun show. In fact, it's one of my favorite TV comedies of all time. The fact that it ended its run 8 years before I was born was no impediment to my loving it because reruns of the show can be found on TV in the U.S. pretty much daily. If you somehow get a chance, you should check an episode or two out, but I wouldn't be surprised if the humor is a little too grounded in U.S. culture for the show to to work internationally.

Wouldn't have surprise me if they had seek to end RPG's.
I used to be part of a roleplay based on Frank Herbert's Dune in Second Life.
There where a couple of different role plays there in Second Life.
lawyers of the Frank Herbert estate send a letter that we had to stop.
We could not use Dune and other names, terms etc used in Dune.

Three words: Not ... for ... profit.
