A few years ago on our national radio network, there was a segment called "Defending the Indefencable" where one guy would have to defend something like terrorists, Adolf Hitler, commercial radio, Charlie Manson etc. It was a really amusing segment, I'd like to see something like that here, hence the thread. Someone comes up with something that normally couldn't be defended, then another comes and defends it by any means possible.

Let me begin! Jar Jar Binks

This one is for UK TV comedy fans:
I will defend the makers of 'Only Fools and Horses' for continuing it after the Trotters had become millionaires, even if ending the entire the series on such an amazing high point would have been one of the most lasting "feel good" TV moments of all time.
We were all just too desperate for yet another Christmas special. Do not blame the script writers, or the producers. I blame the incessant culture in which I expect to receive BBC TV sitcom gifts on Christmas day!!! :(

As for defending Jar Jar Binks--He proved that the Ewoks weren't the worst thing to spring out of the Star Wars world and gave people a clue as to what Star Wars merchandise to avoid.

@JamieO Yeah, I see what you mean, though it was never quite the same - John Sullivan is a great writer.
There is a classic template for British Sitcom involving two men who desperately want to escape each other but cant, think Steptoe and Son, the Likey Lads, Only Fools... and more recently Peep Show.

True dat, Red Dwarf to an extent would be another example, and even from the early foundations of TV you had acts such as Laurel and Hardy, it's a age old formula for a successful comedy sitcom.

Jar Jar Binks makes the Ewoks look like f*cking Shaft.

Um what? You do realise the rebellion would've crumbled without the help of the ewoks. And Jar-Jar Binks was the greatest character ever. All the other characters were like "Look at me! I've got mind powers!" whereas Jar-Jar stayed true to himself and didn't conform the latest fad. And yes I just called the force a fad.

@chunky_droid The setting of Gungan City, deep below the swamps of Naboo, is pretty darn awesome. I would sell my poxy flat for the opportunity to live in a city deep down, beneath the sea. Therefore, I will defend Jar Jar Binks, by aknowledging that the clumsy, gibbering baffoon has a nice home.
@Ristar42 A quality observation there, although I can't think of many more to add to your list. Perhaps Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, although they seem better off with their mates than with the nagging women, or even My Name Is Earl, because you think that Randy needs Earl to get by, but Earl is as dependent on Randy. I think that @Stevie 's Red Dwarf example fits the template of "men who desperately want to escape each other but can't", better than mine.
