Here's a cabin fever question plus I'm bord: What was your favorite "old" tv shows from like the 80's or earlier? Mine would be a three way tie between McHale's Navy, Hogan's Heroes, and the Andy Griffith show.

    Amazing how Annette suddenly caught a bad case of lung warts and Bobby ended up dancing with Barbra Boylan and Cissy King on the Welk show. Cubby also went to Welk for a few years then left and did well hitting licks for Spike Jones, Ann margaret, Jim Nabors, Carol Burnett, and Karen & Richard Carpenter over the following years.

    MASH is the show,
    ‘Bout peninsular wars,
    Houlihan is so hot,

    Davidpetzal: Can I get on here?

    Davidpetzal: You are all stupid. TV is worthless. You should be shooting instead, and it’s all Hilary’s fault that you are not.

    PS: I might be more inclined to buy a television set if they made left-handed remotes.


    Right you are, Matt37.

    That was pretty funny. BTW I don't have multiple personality disorder; I have something just as annoying, four brothers.

    I think you confused "BJ and the Bear," with the trucker and the chimp, with "Smokey and the Bandit."

    Magnum, P.I. was the pinnacle of pre-HBO, pre-FX television entertainment, in my opinion. As for other shows from that era, I am man enough to share with you all that I watched every single episode of Little House on the Prairie. There, I said it and I'm proud. Those Ingallses were good hardy folk.

    I had forgotten about so many of these shows, all I've watched of them was reruns though, another I liked when I was little was the Lone Ranger.

    Also Lassie, Sky King, Roy Rogers, Superman, Rifleman, Bonanza, Rawhide and many more. Seeing this list brought back many old memories. It is interesting to note how many of these old favorites featured a plot centered around guns and good shooting. Nowadays you won't find such shows. Interesting to note that in those days we had no random shootings and nowadays they are rampant. These shows always seemed to teach using that power for good.
    Wow I forgot about lassie, when I was little I used to watch it every afternoon as long as it was on.

    A serious cop show and a funny one.
    I almost forgot Amos and Andy, with Andy Brown, The Kingfish and their social club, The Mystic Knights of the Sea.
