Lots of good shows mentioned and comments on each one.
12 o'clock High, I stayed up late one night a few weeks ago just to see that show again as a re-run.
There are a lot of good old shows out there that I enjoyed. Seinfeld mentioned... Oh boy did we get laughs out of that one. DW and I still have our life moments and we say "that could be a Seinfeld episode". and laugh about it. I'll tell you one story.... We pull up in the drive thru, DW places the order and I make comment or change on the order..... DW gets upset with me telling my "You can't change voices!!" and starts this debate on "changing voices in the drive thru". That was one of our Seinfeld moments..... you would have to have been there for the laugh.... OMG it was funny and we still laugh about it. Now she tells me.... "No changing voices"!

A good, wholesome variety show, would be a welcome relief to all the sex, violence, profanity, that is fed to us now. Remember Milton Berle, Red Skelton, Abbot and Costello ??We need 21st century replacements for those fine shows.

For movies, any of the WWII ones. I grew up on them in the 60s. The Great Escape is my favorite. Anything Humphrey Bogart. Escape from Alcatraz.

For series shows: American Bandstand, Ed Sullivan, Car 54 Where Are You?, Gunsmoke, Leave It to Beaver, My Favorite Martian, Mr. Ed, Outer Limits, The Beverly Hillbillies, The Fugitive, The Rat Patrol, The Real McCoys, The Rifleman (dad's favorite), The Twilight Zone, The Virginian, Have Gun Will Travel, Lassie, Mission Impossible, Rawhide to name some of my old favorites. For cartoons, Howdy Doody, Road Runner and Tweety Bird are a few that come to mind.

And whatever happened to the old test pattern with the indian head on it? They really should bring that back. Indian Head test card - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

To get the best possible impression what TV was like in the good old days, these shows must be watched in B&W, on a honking big box TV set with manual rotary dial and rabbit ears for an antenna. One or more of the tubes inside should be weak giving a poor picture on the screen. You also need to occasionally get out of your chair to whack the TV to make the picture better and/or to adjust the rabbit ears. Absolutely no color, cable TV, digital, or flat screens allowed to watch these!!!

Young people these days have no idea how good TV was back then. Same with music. Ask one of them if they know who Bob Dylan is for ex. I used to listen to all the current music back then on a little handheld transistorized AM radio with 9 volt battery and thought it was pretty neato. I even had to do that away from my parents because they thought I was being so rebellious.

I sure miss the olden days.

I'm with others who prefer the original to a remake. The new Hawaii Five O is passable at best.

Some old favorites - Topper, Abbot and Costello, Rin Tin Tin, Sky King, 77 Sunset Strip, Burkes Law, The Rockford Files, Maverick, Cheyenne, Quincy, Paladin, McHales Navy, Mannix, Combat. Most of these defy remake to my thinking.

And I don't need Cookie to lend me his comb. and

Edit - forgot the Bat Masterson, The Saint, It Takes a Thief and The Man from U.N..C.L.E. ( despite seeing Ducky rather frequently on NCIS.

Reading through the posts gave me a few smiles and fond memories, but, for the most part, as posted above and by others, the remakes just don't cut it.

A lot of the oldies are available for download via the internet in MP4 format. We have the entire series for: Bonanza, Little House on the Praire, Road to Avonlea, etc.

Do we have grandchildren??

We watched "I Spy" the other night. It wasn't very good. I think some of these are probably better in our memories.

The Real McCoys was fun to watch. Haven't seen that one in years.
