Back In The Day.

Been watching some great stuff on DVD.  Lots of shows that I didn't bother watching on TV because of the way the networks treat us.  They have a great deal of contempt for viewers - they play with the schedules, chop and change the times, cut episodes, and then drop stuff leaving us high and dry.

But it's also made me think of some of the shows I remember enjoying years ago.

Back when I was a kid, I loved McHale's Navy, My Three Sons, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Julia and The Odd Couple.  I haven't seen any of these in a long time, and I'd like to think they hold up well.

When I was older I loved The Wonder Years, Northern Exposure and Twin Peaks.  But around that same time there were a couple of comedies I remember seeing that I enjoyed late night.

Again I wonder if they've held up.

Doctor, Doctor was the cream of the crop at the time, Sledgehammer was another I liked, and then the short lived The Famous Teddy Z.

I need to try and find some of these and see whether I still laugh at them.

Oh yeah, and Newhart.

Maybe one day they'll be people out there feeling nostalgic for Two and a Half Men.

They'll be the insane people that talk to themselves and drink their own blood.
