Really? So I can't recommend anything like Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones? :cry:

Aww.
sure recommend anything. I watch some shows that were made in the 21st century. My sister got me like Big bang theory. I know that's old now but I refused to watch it at first then she convinced me I would like it. When I heard they talk about comic books that's what did it.

That's so funny KR! And so true.

I didn't watch tv much since Met and I moved into our apartment in December 2007. I'd hear about Big Bang Theory from people in my writer's group. Then January 2013 our telephone and internet provider convinced us to get cable. The only thing worth watching was Big Bang. Okay, I got into Grey's Anatomy the last 10 shows. I have to say that I don't like the whole cop, medical system schmaltz they have on TV, but those last 10 shows I watched were poetry in motion.

They shouldn't have cancelled The Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Hour. That's all I have to say.

there was one I bet none of you remember called "My living Doll" Julie Numar (catwoman) starred as an actual robot and Bob Cummings was her inverter. It only lasted one season.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Living_Doll

Original run September 27, 1964 – March 17, 1965, 26 episodes.
My Living Doll is an American science fiction sitcom that aired for 26 episodes on CBS from September 27, 1964 to March 17, 1965. This series was produced by Jack Chertok and was filmed at Desilu studios by Jack Chertok Television, Inc., in association with the CBS Television Network.

The series was unusual in that it was bought by the network without a formal pilot film (at the request of CBS' president, James T. Aubrey), due to the success of Chertok's previous series, My Favorite Martian.

The most likely reason I didn't see "My living Doll" was because I lived in a somewhat remote area where we got only a few channels. I did see Bonanza on the first run, as well as Beverly Hillbillies and Gilligan's Island. Can't say we had great TV, but that was entertainment then. I remember Room 222, The Mod Squad, Laugh-in, lots of shows. But I didn't watch that one.

Another one is Firefly, because FOX are a bunch of morons.
Another old FOX show that I have been watching online lately is Parker Lewis Can't lose (1990-93). It was good the first season or so, but season three was the worst because FOX interfered with it too much, and wanted to make it more like Saved By the Bell and 90210.

Recently, I was watching episodes of The Heights and the TV version of Ferris Bueller on You Tube.

The Ferris eps are still there, but the ones for The Heights were taken down after a few weeks.

Ferris was on in the Fall of 1990, and it wasn't too bad, but it wasn't a masterpiece, either.

As for The Heights, that was the show that produced the #1 hit How Do You Talk to an Angel back in 1992. It was a decent show, overall, but was probably used to have a #1 song and then be cancelled (which is what happened after that song reached #1 on the charts).
