What old TV shows did you like and why?


"Have Gun, Will Travel' (late '50s)

For a Western it was somewhat more intellectual and cultured. It pulled in a lot of material from many sources. Based in San Francisco it felt a little closer to home too!

The Hollywood Palace variety show, running from 1964-1970, mostly for singers and bands such as Herb Alpert and the TJB:

Now leaving for the cat-sitting gig. I'll be back on the 14th or 15th. See all of you then!

The George Burns/Gracie Allen Show -- they were just so funny!!

Groucho Marx, You Bet Your Life -- again, hillarious!

A lot of the shows back then just seemed so much better than today's drivel. BTW, I liked Have Gun Will Travel, too.

Let's see there were a few.

There would be a tie for absolute favorite between:

"I Love Lucy" (1951-1957)

"The Carol Burnette Show" (1967-1978)

Does either one even need an explanation? Laughing

"Columbo" was another one I used to watch.

The Gong Show ...used to watch it as a child with my dad. He'd laugh & laugh

The Andy Griffith Show.......

The Brady Bunch ...Lol I am a dork. I still watch the reruns.

Leave it to Beaver...I still watch this one too on TV Land\

Mash....I love this, grew up watching it too on my Dads knee.

All in the Family.........My dad was a smarter version of Archie Bunker set in his ways but had a good heart. When O'Conner died it sent me to bed for 2 days, was like losing my Dad all over again.

The Waltons , this is probably one of my ALL time favorite shows that & Little House on the Prairie

Obviously for me these were reruns (I'm only 23) but I always liked older things: people, music, movies, shows, clothing styles. I always used to say when I was a kid that I was born into the wrong era. What kid (growing up now) listens to Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong? And gets their hair done just like Shirley Temple? And later gets a flapper haircut?

As you can see from my list I like sci-fi/fantasy:
The Twilight Zone- Very creative and thought provoking.
Favorite episode: "To Serve Man"
Gilligan's Island- I don't know as though I would find this entertaining now but I've always secretly wanted to be in a survival scenario (don't ask me why-I guess I just love adventure) since I was little and this was a way for me to further my fantasy.
Bewitched- Cute and funny. Female with power, was nice to relate to as a young girl.
Land of the Lost- Again, feeding my thirst for adventure.
The Munsters- I had a crush on Eddie Munster as a kid. I think mostly because he had a widows peak and I have one and I used to get made fun of for it. Also, I just loved all of the characters.
The Jetsons- I don't even know why I like this. Maybe I'll watch an episode to remind myself.
The Flintstones- I think I like this for the same reason as the jetsons. I guess as I said before I like fantasy and adventure plus a little comedy thrown in the mix.
