  • so you're trying to eat got huh?

  • I gotta egot Whoopi see I made this deal with my wife.

  • If I don't got then I can't have another kid.

  • Welcome to watch mojo And today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 unrealistic sitcom storylines.

  • Hello listen to me the fruit baby, this copy, watch that show, watch what?

  • That's my pick up line for this list.

  • We'll be looking at far fetched contrived and borderline fantastical plots from sitcoms that take place in universes resembling reality.

  • We're excluding sitcoms where things like magic, time travel and mothers reincarnated into cars are per the norm.

  • Number 10.

  • Reese joins the army Malcolm in the middle.

  • Malcolm in the middle was always more surreal than the average family sitcom.

  • But we have an especially hard time buying that a teenager as dense as Reese could trick the U.

  • S.

  • Army into believing he's old enough to enlist.

  • Welcome to the U.

  • S.

  • Army, your home for the next three years you will single file on the yellow stripe to the processing facility, do not overwork your tiny little brains trying to figure out what the other stripes are for proving to be a model soldier.

  • Reese is sent to Afghanistan where he goes on the run posing as a woman and even getting wetted off.

  • Reese makes it to India where his mother miraculously tracks him down.

  • Mom, thank you so much.

  • There you are.

  • What in the name of God were you thinking Reese faces.

  • No repercussions for lying to and deserting the army.

  • Likewise the army isn't held accountable for any of this.

  • Everything just goes back to normal and by normal we mean the boys dropping diaper balloon bombs upon unsuspecting rapping grannies.

  • Yo yo yo rabbit No nine.

  • The apartment switch friends in season four, Rachel and Monica are forced to switch apartments with Joey and Chandler after losing a bet.

  • Apartment switching isn't like trading lunches.

  • However, for a switch like this to occur, an apartment lease transfer is required.

  • This usually entails consulting one's landlord who Monica and Rachel have been dodging.

  • Why?

  • Because they've been illegally subletting the rent controlled apartment in Monica's grandma's name.

  • He said that he wasn't going to apologize because you guys are living here illegally.

  • So instead what he's gonna do is have you evicted?

  • I'll see you later.

  • We guess that's why they don't involve the landlord but wouldn't some red flags be raised if Joey and Chandler started paying the rent for nana's apartment for that matter is the rent the same for both apartments.

  • Well, it doesn't really matter since Monica and Rachel switch everything back several episodes later.

  • What the hell is going on?

  • We took our apartment back?

  • I had nothing to do with it seriously.

  • They moved everything in one night.

  • Number eight.

  • The heists Brooklyn, 99 usually taking place on Halloween.

  • The heist episodes are among the sitcoms most memorable with each heist.

  • However, the 99 pushes the limits of realism.

  • Rosa's feline dancing distracted you as a mysterious partier stole your bag on Halloween.

  • It was you in the mask?

  • You sly son of a bit well done.

  • Given how immature and competitive the characters can be.

  • We can see why they'd make heists an annual tradition.

  • We have a harder time believing that so many others would get involved, including a party bus of people and a group dressed as characters from the Handmaid's Tale.

  • Handmaid's Tale.

  • This is Amy won't shut up about how relevant that show is in today's political landscape.

  • It's relevant as hell, but I'm not doing anything exactly how are they paying for their helpers, costumes and mission impossible Spy gear.

  • Anyway, is it all out of their pockets on government salaries or is this our tax dollars at work?

  • Their only purpose was to draw you into the copy room while two members of my team broke into your locked office.

  • So now I had a way into your office and an open cabinet.

  • I think that a higher up would catch wind of these heists, especially after property is damaged.

  • Number seven Michael scott paper company.

  • The office Michael scott can be a surprisingly persuasive salesperson, but he's not very good at the business side of well business yet.

  • He launches the Michael scott paper company with pam who has no sales experience and Ryan, who doesn't have the best sales track record would you like to come to work for the Michael scott paper company.

  • What size shoes you guys?

  • What are those men's 10?

  • What are you doing?

  • What is he doing?

  • He's okay.

  • He's already paying for himself since Michael can't even get his grandma to invest.

  • It's not surprising that the company verges on going broke within weeks.

  • What is surprising is that Michael's company does well enough to take business away from Dunder Mifflin in the last month, we have lost 10 major clients to Michael scott.

  • Are we supposed to do they keep undercutting us on price?

  • I don't want to hear excuses.

  • I want to see improvements.

  • This is unacceptable.

  • This results in dunder Mifflin offering the four week old paper company $60,000 before ultimately rehiring its three employees, including Ryan who got arrested for committing fraud as vice president.

  • These are our demands.

  • This is what we want.

  • Our balls are in your court.

  • Okay.

  • Getting back to the status quo comes with a tough pill to swallow Number six, hand bitten off by a seal arrested development.

  • Whenever we re watch arrested development, we always catch ingenious details that we missed before.

  • For example, at a claw machine buster wins a toy.

  • Seal foreshadowing that a seal is going to bite off his hand in a later episode.

  • Watch out for Lucille And then a seal bites off his hand as clever as this is.

  • It's over the top, even by arrested development standards.

  • Things only get more ridiculous when it's revealed that the seal coincidentally belonged to job.

  • Who gave the sea creature a taste for mammal blood by using terminal cats for bait.

  • My fault.

  • It was my seal.

  • I released him and he bit off your hand.

  • Wow!

  • Truth feels good.

  • You did this to me and Job was about to experience something that didn't feel that good.

  • Also, we know that the blues have fallen on hard times, but we'd imagine they'd be able to afford something better than a hook for a prosthetic.

  • Sure, buster eventually gets a bionic hand.

  • But why would they make one that big cabinet please?

  • Mm Oh Number five The trial Seinfeld.

  • Although Jerry has a cell phone.

  • The gang does nothing to help when they witness a Carjacking in Massachusetts goes the money for the lipo.

  • See the great thing about robbing a fat guy is, it's an easy getaway.

  • You know, they can't really chase you.

  • He's actually doing him a favor less money from the buy food.

  • Breaking the good samaritan law.

  • The four are arrested and put on trial.

  • In addition to eyewitnesses, the dist Attorney's office somehow manages to track down several familiar faces who testify against them.

  • This includes the soup Nazi who moved to Argentina and babu who got deported to Pakistan.

  • It is Babeu's turn to mock.

  • Finally, I will have some justice send them away while duty to rescue laws exist.

  • They rarely result in this much fanfare.

  • We don't think that the city would dedicate this much time money and resources to making an example out of four people for this, especially when they technically did help, shocked, mortified and stupefied.

  • This trial is outrageous.

  • It is a waste of the taxpayer's time and money.

  • Cramer recorded a video of the carjacker, which could be used to identify him.

  • Number four santa is real Gilligan's island, granted Gilligan's Island might have been a bit more outlandish than the average sitcom that said, getting stranded on an uncharted island isn't outside the realm of possi ability.

  • Santa claus showing up on the island is another story.

  • Oh, merry christmas to you all.

  • Thank you santa.

  • But would you care to tell us what we have to be married about?

  • It's christmas and to raise morale.

  • The skipper seemingly dresses as santa When the real skipper suddenly shows up though, it's strongly suggested that the castaways just encountered santa himself.

  • So let's get this straight.

  • What's everybody looking at santa is not only real, but he looks exactly like skipper with a white beard.

  • What's more santa could have rescued the castaways by giving them a ride in his sleigh and instead left them to rot.

  • You'll never believe it skipper.

  • Merry christmas, merry christmas, thank you.

  • Whether they were on the naughty or nice list.

  • That's a pretty sadistic move ST nick, Number three Miley's secret identity, Hannah Montana with most of the entries on this list.

  • It's only an episode or story arc that goes overboard with Hannah Montana, The entire premises beyond preposterous on the surface.

  • Miley Stewart is an average middle schooler behind the scenes though she's pop sensation, Hannah Montana, whoever you are, you have to get out of here right now or I'll call security.

  • How does Miley conceal her true identity?

  • Does she wear a mask like daft punk?

  • No, she wears a blonde wig with no other changes whatsoever.

  • I thought we told each other everything, but I guess I was wrong since you kept just about the biggest secret in the world, Miley Stewart slash Hannah Montana.

  • Miley is otherwise identical to Hannah, but most of her peers failed to notice the resemblance.

  • People also don't realize that Hannah's manager looks just like country singer, Robbie ray only with a fake mustache and while you're at it, you might want to shape the ferret off your face.

  • We know that it's a Disney channel sitcom, but this makes the, that's so raven look like a documentary number two jumping the shark.

  • Happy Days.

  • We've all heard of jumping the shark, but where does the saying come from?

  • Well, the phrase originated from radio personality, john heine in 1985 the inspiration comes from a season five episode of Happy Days that aired in 1977.

  • While shark jumping has since taken on many different forms.

  • The original case is quite literal on a trip to Hollywood, Fonzie is challenged to water ski over a tiger shark shark.

  • That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

  • Stupid yes, also dumb, but it's something I gotta do Fontes competitor who seriously goes by the California kid chickens out.

  • The Fonz isn't one to back down though.

  • Pulling off the stunt while wearing his signature leather jacket and swim trunks that leave little to the imagination, it's totally surreal and arguably when the show declined, what's next?

  • Robin Williams as an alien, wait a minute, Who are you?

  • I am Mark Mark.

  • Number one Steve's various inventions.

  • Family matters, family matters was a fairly straightforward sitcom.

  • until Steve Erkel entered the equation, the show officially leaps into sci fi fantasy territory when steve develops a cool elixir that turns him into the suave Stephan Urkel steve later invents a transformation chamber that not only turns himself into Stefan, but Bruce lee and Elvis as well.

  • This isn't even the most logic defying invention in Steve's inventory over the years.

  • He also cooks up a cloning machine, a teleportation device that takes the family to Paris and a time travel watch that takes him aboard an 18th century pirate ship.

  • One invention even results in NASA sending Steve to space bingo.

  • I found the poor thruster steve should be a billionaire with his engineering skills, but for some reason, still lives with the Winslow's.
