    • Re: Asian giant for HC

      I realized I watched too much TV too, but I was a kid, so I had the time!

      I remember I had the entire week lined up with what shows to watch....back then NBC ruled. They were unmatched by anyone else. ABC came close 2nd I think.....

      Today I barely have time to breath if I want to be any good at what I do for a living since technology moves so fast....

      Something about the older shows seemed original. Today, it just seems so cookie cutter with bland and no name actors.

      For example, growing up, I admit, I watched 90210 and Saved by the Bell. These shows were very original and had a cult following.
      The newer 90210 series I'm not sure how well it's doing. And any of the newer Saved by the Bell classes, did nothing for the show. All we remember are the originals.

      Knight Rider was the same, they've had many Knight Rider remakes, yet, we only know and remember of David Hasselhoff....

      Again, there's something about the older TV series/sitcom that made them unique and memorable...

      I don't think it's just me thinking this....

        I agree with you, AG... only, I'm talking about the shows I grew up with, in the mid 50's to late 60's. </P>

          I'm not sure which shows those were you watched, and I'm sure as a kid, I was watching the reruns, but if I can try to go far back into those times, these are the shows that I used to watch.

          The Dukes of H***ard, My Favorite Martian, The Brady Bunch, Bewitched, The Monkees, Fantasy Island, Laugh In, The Twilight Zone, Leave it to Beaver, Andy Griffith Show

          As you can see, I'm stretching here..... I think my best bet is probably to list only the black and white TV series...

          As someone who grew up in the 50's, you must be absolutely amazed at what and how the world is today compared to yesteryears no?

          And you know, the sad thing is, the 50's and earlier were obviously in color(in real life), but because footages were in black and white, you subconsciously think of those years as black and white....

                Subconsciously? You mean humans could see in color before it was introduced on TV?</P>


                Disney's Wonderful World of Color probably got more people to make that leap from B&amp;W than anything else. The opening alone, with Tinkerbell, begged to be seen in color. Davy Crockett. There was Father Knows Best, Officer Joe Bolton (afternoons on WPIX), 77 Sunset Strip with Kookie, Sugarfoot, Cheyenne, Bronco Lane, Maverick, Wagon Train, The Mod Squad ('68), Beulah, Hazel, Ozzie and Harriet, Lucille Ball, Milton Berle, Ed Sullivan, Million Dollar Movie, Zacharly, The Invaders, Bonanza, I Spy. Cimarron, Leave it to Beaver, Johnny Carson at night. Of course ABC's Wide World of Sports was great on late Saturday afternoons... Saw such World Wide attractions as barrel Jumping on Ice and Curling... always great...lol. But, they showed the Grey Cup every year, so we got to see the more wide open Canadian Football.</P>


                So much more, but my memory fails me now... perhaps YA or another old timer will help me out here.</P>


                Not that you are sooo Old, YA...lol. You're younger than me... Whipper Snapper.</P>


                CBS was #1 and NBC #2, with ABC pulling up the rear. But, the late 60's/early 70'ssaw the rise of ABC. There was no FOX yet.</P>

                        Anybody else think that Bahrain, Libya, Yemen, Egypt, Morocco related? Saudi next? Hate to sound like a right wing nut job. Could this be the foreshadowing of 2012? Scary stuff my friends.
