Andi, "old" is a state of mind. Besides, growing old beats the heck out of the alternative. :D

I remember Red Skelton, Ed Sullivan (We have a reeelly great shew tonite"), The Rifleman, Gunsmoke, Leave it to Beaver -- ohhhh -- the list goes on and on.

I Remenisce (sp?) about the good stuff and forget about the bad and enjoy life as it comes.

Hey. Who could forget Clem Cadiddle Hopper?! :D

Since we're taking a trip down memory lane, let's not forget shows like Bonanza, F Troop, Hogans Heros, Mr. Ed, My Favorite Martian, The Flying Nun, The Munsters, The Adams Family. There's plenty more but someone else can add to the list. :)

When I was a kid it was ALF, The A Team, the Dukes Of Hazzard, the Cosby Show, etc. What can I say? I'm a child of the 80's.

Good ol' Fess...sorely missed...

I have started watching the old "Daniel Boone" show on Retro TV. Despite the initial appeal to the kids, (coonskin hats, etc.), and the fact that most of the actors cast as "indians" may not have recognized a real Native American, the show does have a lot to offer in showing how people lived and worked back then. :confused:

Since the show is set in roughly the same period as the America Revolution, it has a lot of characters that represent the players of the time...the British Redcoats, the revolutionaries (eg.- Benjamin Franklin), the various Indian tribes (along with a very fair representation of the legitimate complaints that they had with both the settlers and the British :mad:

Whoever produced this show obviously spent a lot of time researching the subject to keep it historically accurate. :congrat:

Lastly, the casting of Fess Parker (formerly Disney's Davy Crockett) as Boone brought the character to life! :2thumb:

Turn it off and get your own life back

I have given up on television for the most part. IMHO Big Brother and Survivor were the beginning of a slow downward spiral in to stupidity for TV programing. There are no family show with values anymore. The shows that are out to day are, disgusting, raunchy, and degrading. Call me old fashioned, but I have the spine to say the Emperor(media) is naked. My two cents: .

I don't know how anyone could watch any of the reality shows. They are not near as close to reality as saturday night wrestling.
