I miss the old sitcoms like Barney Miller, All in the Family, Taxi, Cheers, Sanford and Son, Happy Days, Mash, The Jeffersons, Good Times, and others.

Does anyone else feel this way, and what are your comments. Those days may be gone forever!

Add to those, I Love Lucy, Dick Van Dyke, Andy Griffith, Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie, Gunsmoke, Roy Rogers, Superman, Lassie... I know they're old, a lot in black and white, but great shows, nonetheless... You never minded your children watching shows like these...they were funny, light, had good morale character, were free from vulgarity and taught good lessons.

Damn Dave & Linda, you two need to get Satellite TV. Theres a channel called TV Land that does all day marathons on most of the shows you pointed out.

Believe it or not my kids watch Happy Days and they are teenagers. My wifes a Cheers freak.
The classics never went away, you just need to upgrade. lol

Sanford and Son was very well done, as was Leave it to Beaver. All in the Family and MASH were certainly funny, but the producers got too heavily into manipulating the characters for left-wing propaganda purposes, and that kind of turned me off.

I've had a problem watching sit-coms since the laughtracks got too much (they've been around longer than most people realize), -esp. when the jokes weren't even that funny, and when they started shoving their "messages" down our throats. But the 50s and 60s ones were good.

I like the British sitcoms like Are You Being Served, Fawlty Towers, Keeping Up Appearances, The Young Ones and Absolutely Fabulous.
I like the old 50's-60's era shows like The Jack Benny show, Sgt. Bilko/The Phil Silvers Show, The Life of Riley, Car 54 Where Are You?, Make Room For Daddy/The Danny Thomas Show, McHale's Navy, The Many Loves of Dobbie Gillis, The Donna Reed Show, The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, Petticoat Junction, Get Smart, That Girl, My Favorite Martian, F Troop, and Room 222.
I like the 70's sitcoms like Mork & Mindy, Mary Hartman Mary Hartman and Welcome Back Kotter.
Just some of the shows I don't seem to see on TV anymore.

TVland used to be great, also Nick at nite was good, but all their shows now are from the 70's and 80's. I used to like the Honeymooners and the Adventures of Superman or Batman. Also The Munsters and the Adams Family. Now on saturdays and sundays they have all day Bonaza and Gunsmoke marathons. TVland did have an all Andy Girffith weekend after Don Knotts died featuring his best episodes, also after Al Lewis passed away TVland had a Munsters marthon. I just wish they didnt have so many 70's sitcoms.

When I was just four or five years old I liked watching "Highway Patrol" with Broderick Crawford. I can still remember the opening lines: "Whenever the laws of any state are broken, a duly authorized organization swings into action. It may be called the state police, state troopers, militia, the rangers, or the highway patrol. These are the stories of men whose training, skill and courage have enforced and preserved our state laws."

I love Leave It To Beaver too. Watching the Honeymooners was a ritual. My parents and Grandparents would make it an event, and it was good. I think most of these mentioned by everyone were worth watching, and relaxing. How about Sky King, Wyatt Earp, Cheyanne, The Rifleman,Maverick,Sugarfoot, and the Lloyd Bridges diving show, although they are not comedies.--I got thru the late 90's watching Northern Exposure-fantastic show.

Hawk-I went back to the Dark Ages about 5 years ago after my divorce! I don't have cable or a satellite dish, although I am surrounded by 16 dishes from the tenants here.

Hallmark has alot of good quailty family shows, The Waltons, Litlle House, Matlock and Mash. The Sci-Fi channel used to have older shows like One Step Beyond and alot of the 50's and 60's horror-monster movies that Mystery Science theatre used. Also the station Rural Tv has alot of old country and western shows, like The wilburn Bors, the Porter Wagoneer show and Pop goes the Country. When I go to Chicago I like to watch ME-Tv which has a great lineup of shows, Gidget, The Monkees, Three Stooges etc.

Ok...when I was 9-10-11 years old, I wanted to be an actress (doesn't every little girl?), so I diligently studied the "acting" in such fine programming as: Small Wonder, Perfect Strangers, The Golden Girls, Facts of Life, Full House, etc.

Given that my current t.v. diet consists almost exclusively of PBS specials (ok, and Family Guy), my past t.v. palate is quite embarrassing.

Hey, stop laughing, Hawk!

It is embarassing for me to recall thinking some shows were funny. I remember my sister and I used to love "The Monkees". Then about 15 years ago Nick at Night ran every episode of the Monkees back to back. My wife (who also said she liked the show) watched a few and were very embarassed. Then another episode started and I said, "OK, I remember this episode, THIS one is funny". It wasn't funny.
One of my other favorites as a teen does hold up very well, the surreal and outrageous "Green Acres".

Gilligan's Island is the greatest sitcom ever. I still watch it whenever it's on, and will eventually get the series on DVD. So there.

BTW, how many people know that the seven castaways represent the seven deadly sins?

1) Gilligan = sloth
2) Skipper = gluttony
3) Mr Howell = greed
4) Mrs Howell = anger
5) Professor = pride
6) Ginger = lust
7) Maryann = envy

Others have a different take on things:

The Seven Deadly Sins of Gilligan's Island

The Gilligan's Island Connection

I once heard a story about an international flight that was being held up on the ground for quite a lengthy period of time. The passengers entertained themselves during the wait by taking turns singing their respective national anthems. When the Americans got their turn they sang "The Ballad of Gilligan's Island."

Dave, it had Bea Arthur in it, who, I think was in an earlier show called Maude. However, I don't recall her character's name in The Golden Girls. I do recall that I thought she looked like a guy in drag. And, no, Mr. Smart Alec, I was a wee lass at the time...mid '80s. By the time I was a teen (early '90s), I had graduated to watching Mystery Science Theater 3000.

OKMike, with your admission of watching the Monkees when you were young, at least I'm in good company in my embarrassment!

Ed, I never thought of Gilligan's Island that way. This is another show I haven't seen since I was a kid (and I only saw it then as re-runs), but I think you might be on to something!

Actually, and everyone forgets this, while Gilligan almost always messed up the castaways' chances of getting off the island, there were times when they all came up with some wacky ideas and screwed themselves! Not only that, Gilligan saved their lives on many occasions as well...

Mary Ann for me. She's fresh and wholesome; more my type. Besides, she knows how to cook. Ginger wouldn't be of any use unless you had a suitcase full of money like Mr. Howell.

I may have observed this somewhere before, but the older I get, the sexier Mrs. Howell appears to me.

Natalie Schafer who played Mrs. Howell never played any sexy roles in her film and television career. She came from Broadway to films and didn't make her first movie until she was 41 years old. She was typecast in high society matron type roles in film and TV. By the time she got on Gilligan's Island she was ready to retire at age 64.
Kit Smythe was the original Ginger in the series pilot. Ginger was a secretary not a movie star.
Nancy McCarthy was in the Dawn Wells role but it wasn't as Mary Ann. It was Bunny.
John Gabriel played the professor.
Future movie composer John Williams scored the original song before it was changed to the Sherwood Schwartz version.

Barbara Eden is indeed one hot babe and even when she was 60 she still looked like she was 30 and she's one of TV's all-time babes but Elizabeth Montgomery wins that race for me. Sorry.
I'm sure you've seen that Twilight Zone episode where Elizabeth Montgomery and Charles Bronson are the only survivors in a post-nuclear war. He's an American soldier and she's a Russian soldier. She only says one word in the whole episode. The Russian word for 'pretty' when she admires a dress in a window.
In the episode she has dark hair touching her shoulders, parted down the middle and dark eye shadow and she's wearing a short military skirt with knee-high boots and has a bullet sash and a knife belt on. Like some Russian goth chick. Hot! Giggity, giggity!!

Johno... I'd just like to point out that, according to Glamour Girls: The Illustrated Encyclopedia by Steve Sullivan, Barbara Eden is the #38 all-time glamour goddess, and Elizabeth Montgomery comes in at #319. The preliminary results can be seen at All-Time Glamour Girls Survey along with an explanation of how the rankings were arrived at.

BTW, my all-time fave glamour goddess, Bettie Page, is #6. Three guesses who #1 is, and the first two don't count.

What a list! And I love all 1,071 of them on it, blondes, brunettes and redheads.
Actually that particular list had Elizabeth at #266 not 319.
The point rankings and placement of names are ridiculous but it sure is a good list of contestants. And it's a list that missing a ton of great ones too.

My top movie star's only would be:
1-Heddy Lamar
2-Rita Hayworth
3-Grace Kelly
4-Gene Tierney
5-Vivien Leigh
6-Louise Brooks
7-Veronica Lake
8-Norma Shearer
9-Jennifer Jones
10-Pier Angeli

Try not to get aroused by Nancy, Doug. That's Sharon Tate with the black wig.

Yes, one and the same. She made a brief appearance on the Hillbillies. That doesn't look like her, but it is her!

Not that old of a show, but Father Ted was pretty funny. I'm also a fan of old cartoon shows. Does anyone recall the Banana Splits? I liked the Danger Island bits, lame as they were.

Oswell, that pic of Helen Thomas was the scariest thing I've seen in years, and I've seen some pretty frightening stuff. I'm glad I wasn't viewing this on my laptop; It hasn't been that long since I replaced the LCD.

She is frightening; there's no doubt about it. I reckon if she took off some of that clown makeup she might qualify as ugly. As it is, there's no way to adequately describe her!

Hey, Miss Hathaway wasn't ugly, just plain. A woman like that is bound to be very passionate--probably too much for most guys to handle.

Plain or not, I could never develop much interest in a dumb bunny. For me, a woman would have to be above average in intelligence, morally strong, and emotionally mature. Which is what I've got now, incidentally!

But, Doug, how in the world did you find a woman fitting that description who's willing to put up with you?! Just kidding- I'm glad you found your match!

St Peter: "And why Mrs. Oswell, do you believe you deserve to be in heaven as opposed to hell?"

Mrs. Oswell: "I was married to Douglas Oswell for more than 30 years."

St.Peter: "Right this way maam."

That list contains only the preliminary rankings as of February 1997, and there are differences between it and the final publication in December 1999.

How about June Cleaver vs Harriet Nelson?

June Cleaver, in a heartbeat. Actually, I've never quite convinced myself that Eddie Haskell didn't have the hots for Beaver's mom.

Eddie: Hi, Mrs. Cleaver!

June: Well, hello Eddie. What are you up to today?

Eddie: Oh, me and Wally thought we'd go downtown and set some derelicts on fire.

June: That's nice, Eddie. Just be careful you don't set yourselves on fire.

Eddie: Don't worry, Mrs. Cleaver, I'm a Boy Scout. I know how to put out fires. Hey! Is that a pot roast I smell cooking?

June: No, Eddie, Mr. Cleaver just broke wind.

Eddie: I don't see Mr. Cleaver.

June: He just stepped out.

Eddie: Hey, Mrs. Cleaver, as long as Mr. Cleaver is out, why don't you and me go upstairs for a quick roll in the hay?

June: Eddie!

Eddie: Okay; okay. I guess it's setting bums on fire.

June: I'll call Wally.

Allow me to reiterate:
Geez, what is WITH you guys?!

This thread gave me nightmares last night like you don't want to know!

Johno, I like the St. Peter dialogue; Doug should show that to his wife, next time he needs to make up after an argument.

Douglas, I'm glad you recognize her work towards sainthood!

Jim, that might pose a difficulty in developing a relationship...and you've got the added hurdle of convincing a gal to move to Phoenix, to boot!

Y'all need to put some Native American and Latina Women on your little list...oh wait, I guess you can't very easily...now that I think about the shows...

Geez, I'd start reviewing guys from all those shows, but, yuck, no. I don't want to deal with the accompanying nausea.

I usually watch Leave It To Beaver everyday.

One of the funniest episodes is the one where Wally takes Beaver and his friends camping. Lumpy and Eddie try to ruin their trip by sneaking up on the campsite while the gang is sleeping and try to scare them, but wind up getting scared themselves. Eddie winds up falling off of a cliff and Wally and Beaver's friends have to pull him up to safety.

Jim, my apologies for thinking you lived in Phoenix! Your romantic prospects are likely much improved!

And, I wasn't clear about the cause of my queasiness...it wasn't y'alls' comments. It was the prospect of ME doing comparisons of the MEN from those old shows, as y'all were comparing the WOMEN. The men from those old shows don't do anything for me...I think I'd rather compare the women...
