I’m thinking about all the TV shows I forgot to mention in my SOCS last night. That’s what I get for PWT (posting when tired).
My mom and I watched a ton of original Star Trek together in New Blursey. I also became a fan of The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits around this time.
Mom and I also watched Creature Feature in Illinois while doing jigsaw puzzles in the basement. Scary!
I can’t believe I forgot Laugh-In! Loved that show. Also enjoyed some of the other variety shows starring Carol Burnett, Sonny & Cher, and Tony Orlando & Dawn. Was never a huge fan of the mostly talky ones like Johnny Carson, but he was on too late for me anyway. I’ve never been a night owl, though owls are awesome.🦉
I mentioned All in the Family, but I somehow forgot The Jeffersons and Rhoda, both of which I loved. I liked The Mary Tyler Moore Show a lot too. I enjoyed That Girl back in the day, but just like IDOJ, it doesn’t hold up in the present with all the sexist crap built into almost every storyline.
And how could I have forgotten The Partridge Family? Omg. And The Courtship of Eddie’s Father.
The Munsters and The Addams Family were also faves of mine.
Family Ties was funny. Bridget Loves Bernie was great, though short-lived. Three’s Company was funny at the time, but it wouldn’t be now because too much gay mockery.
I somehow forgot all the cop shows! Dragnet, Magnum P.I., Vega$, Hart to Hart, TJ Hooker, McMillan & Wife… love love love. And recently I went on a Monk bingeroo.
And one of the funniest, most underrated shows of all, that had strange and interesting skits, with top stars… can’t believe I forgot this one…
LOVE AMERICAN STYLE! 🇺🇸❤️💙🎈🎉
