I know there was an 80's cartoon thread on here, but I didn't see anything for the subject of what shows you like watching when you grew up. For me it was:

Black Sheep Squadron
Hogan's Heroes
Happy Days
MacGyver
Murder She Wrote
Mystery Science Theater 3000
and others....

Knight Rider
Airwolf (yes, goofy, but I still liked the helicopter)

The Brady Bunch ("that's Diamondhead, dumbhead!")

LOL! Oh yeah. That particular line, delivered by one Peter Brady to Bobby Brady, was a voiceover as a shot of their United Airlines DC-8 was on final approach to HNL from LAX. (Incidentally, the Brady's departed from their
3-part episode/Hawaiian vacation on a United Airlines B-747-100. I still recall the ending shot of the episode, showing the UAL74 roaring down the runway and taking off).

My fav shows while growing up:

"Get Smart" - I LOVED the cool Opel GT that Max drove. Man, I wanted
that car!

"Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea"

"Lost In Space" - "Danger Wil Robinson!"

"Gilligan's Island" - My fav episodes are "Miss Castaway" and the episode
where "legendary" Broadway producer Harold Hecubah
(played by Phil Silvers) flees from civilization in order to
come up with a sure-fire winner play. He lands on the
island, and subsequentley casts the castaways in a
VERY off-Broadway musical version of "Hamlet".

"The Brady Bunch" - Marcia vs Jan. The show sucked when they brought on
Robbie Rist to play "Cousin Oliver" (Season 5). And of
course, there was Miss. Ann B. Davis.....nothing more
need be said.

NOTE: Half my siblings prefered "The Partridge Family" - we had debates as to
which ABC Network sitcom family was the best. Remember Reuben
Kincaid, their manager, and his swinging Stewardess girlfriend, Bonnie
Klineshschmidt?

"Land Of The Giants" - I still have my LOTG metal lunchbox.

"The Thunderbirds"

"Green Acres" - "Boot Olivah! Vy do ve hav to shtay here in Hootashville vhen
ve coould be back in da shity? Ve coold take Arnold ze
Pig vis us."

"The Trouble With Tracy". Only Canadians of a certain age will know this
stinkeroo of a Canuck sitcom. SO bloody bad it
is a bonafide classic. The scripts and acting sucked
BIG TIME, but man oh man!

"Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom - Sunday afteroon - CBC 5:00 p.m.
"Wonderful World Of Disney" - Sunday Nights, CBC 6:00 p.m.

"Marcus Welby, M.D." - Don't ask, I can't explain it.

"Adam 12"

"Starsky & Hutch" - Another 70's relic that is SOOO Cheeseball slime.
Remember Huggy Bear? Loved their Ford Torino.

"The Uncle Bobby Show" - Weird, VERY weird kids TV show on CFTO TV.

"EMERGENCY!" - Yes yes, this 70's classic about paramedics and Rampart
General Hospital. The most exciting segments of the episodes
were the scenes of the paramedic truck, sirens blaring, roaring
through the streets of L.A enroute to an.....EMERGENCY! LOL.

Later on, as my I matured and turned into the klassy guy (*cough*) I am today, I watched:

"The Mary Tyler Moore Show" - I LOVED Rhoda Morgenstern, she rocked. And
who could forget the classic episode (one among
so many of this great series) which featured
"Ted Baxter's Broadcasting School".

"The Carol Burnett Show" - In Canada, this show was sponsored by KRAFT
foods, and the commercials would always be
for recipes involving Cheez Whiz. Blech.

"All In The Family" - My fav episode is when Edith is going through a very
difficult menopause - her mood swings and violent
outbursts make her more of a "Dingbat" than usual.
Hilarious episode. Excellent series, superlative scripts and
performances.

"M*A*S*H" - A classic.

"Dallas" - A show that, when viewed today, is SO Cheesy, but ya gotta love it.

"Dynasty" - ONLY because of Pamela Sue Martin (Fallon Carrington) who was
in the cast from season 1 -3. I had a major crush on her. After
she left the show, I dumped it.

"Three's Company"

"The Bob Newhart Show" - The original with Suzanne Pleshette, who had the
that deep, smoky sexy voice!


LOL, ironically, today I watch little or NO television at all, with the exception of Discovery Channel, History Channel and HBO. TV of the 60's and 70's was THE BEST.

As a kid it was always "Bewitched." There wasn't anything to stop me from being in front of that TV at 7:30 on Thursday nights. I was too young to appreciate some of the humor, especially the last season (which was the worst rated, but as an adult had some of the best jokes, i.e. Esmerelda's goof with the Leaning Tower of Pisa "one tower (sandwich), and make it lean..."). As an adult watching the reruns, I appreciate it so much more, but you could tell they were running out of fresh ideas. Looking forward to the Nicole Kidman movie this summer.

As I got into high school in college it was the two D's - Dallas and Dynasty. Battlestar Galactica was a treat, and I am really enjoying this new version.

I never quite "got" Seinfeld.

I gave up on sit-coms in the 90's. Watched more "Discovery Channel" "A&E", or "History Channel" stuff. People would tell me , "you gotta watch Mad About You, or Seinfeld, or Freinds!". So, I'd tune in for the first time and end up seeing what would be considered a "classic" episode. "The Soup Nazi" was the first Seinfeld I ever saw. I then watched it THE NEXT WEEK, and it was some show that I didn't find funny at all. Same thing happened with "Mad ABout You". It was a Thanksgiving episode where they destroyed about 19 turkeys trying to make Thanksgiving supper. The NEXT episode wasn't all that funny, so I'd just give up, and go back to watching "Law and Order" reruns...
