Not long ago, the rat patrol was on netflicks.
I couldn't believe how cheesy that show was, but I watched it every week.
Another great show was Voyage to the bottom of the sea, and Have gun will travel.

Hmmm, that's a hard one because tv is so fragmentd today with all the channels, cable, satellite etc. But I would guess on the mainstream channels perhaps not so much as it used to be - possibly 5% or so.

When I was a kid there was much more US content. Our first commercial channel didn't appear until I think '58 and at first it relied heavily on imports. I remember our teachers used to complain about us watching the American programmes, particularly the cartoons (remember Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear and Popeye?). But we enjoyed them and it never did us any harm!. Far better than a lot of the rubbish put out now, like reality shows and audience participation, and viewers phoning in to vote.
About the only thing we haven't got yet is a naked female mud wrestling channel, but I'm sure it will come soon.

All down to money I suppose - so many channels chasing advertising revenue. But its still good to watch some of the old ones again - Columbo, Kojak, Starsky, Streets of San Francisco - all part of our growing-up.

cheers.

I will play, I actually prefer the older black and white shows on my 50" hd plasma
There are many,but every time I watch the Patty Duke show, I love the old school over the post stair rail in the house. I often look for old architecture for ideas.

We once built a maple over the post curved rail for a parade of homes house.
It is illegal because of the difference in hight from the cats ass coming off the post.
We had already ordered another rail that would be mounted to the wall and code, install after the home show.
Somehow the inspector for a co was called before we installed it.
Man could that inspector swear, make a sailor blush, but he passed us

Thinking about it, my favorite old show is Twilight Zone. Still watch when they have those marathons on holidays.
To put this in perspective, my favorite new show is American Horror Story.

I'm waaaaaaaaaaaay too young to even know most of these show, but due to having 2 young girls under 2 years old, I've probably seen most of the shows listed so far at least once. When one of them wakes up at 3-4AM and needs some cuddle time, all that's on is info-mercials & one great channel that shows all the classics. At one point a year or so ago, I used to hope my older daughter would wake up just so I could watch Petticoat Junction with her. Now she loves trains, so it's not to hard to at least get her to watch the intro with me.........

Anybody else like "Pleasantville" as much as I do? It is very intense. Unless you just do not want to have to think. Still gets you at the end.



It is hated cult film for the fact it exposes lots of racism and nails provincialism.

Black & White to color through the film is fun though.

Of course the film was shot in color and then color, selectively abstracted.

Not that I can afford to be too picky with the memory thing , but I think it was Sargent Preston of the Yukon. Gotta go watch Lassie now. Maybe catch an episode of Flipper. Anybody remember the comedy show with the astronauts, or the one with the helicopters?
