David...you should have divided it by decade of your youth.  I would fit into the 1950s-1960s, so my choice would be very different from someone of the 1970s or 1980s, etc.  I have seem most of these shows, either as first run TV or reruns and syndication.  I have seen every episode of Lucy, Beaver, Hillbillies, Bewitched (many, many times) and some I can't think of at the moment, but I still love to watch those old shows.  The newer shows just don't have that special something that made the oldies great in their time.  Today, I'm hooked on the CSI series (George Eads, Erik Z., Gary Sinese) and Cold Case (Danny Pino is just too georgous for words), and all of the Animal Planet, Planet Earth, Ancient Discoveries, Nature, Nova, Digging for the Truth, and on and on and on. When I was working many of my co-workers were tell me how amazed they were of all the trivial info I had stored in my brain, and I would have to tell the truth....most of it comes from watching TV.  No matter which shows you gravitate towards, there will always be something of educational or trival benefit, i.e., I've learned more about WWII from TV than I learned in 16 years of formal education.

But back to the subject of favorites....my absolute favorite show, cartoon character he may be, is the irrassable Daffy Duck (Bugs, Porky and Tweety are in the running, but the duck has it hands down!).  And I think that my desire to be an artist was rooted in the cartoons I watch...I did not become a cartoonist, nor a commercial artist (which I studied for), but a landscape artist, which lead me into nature/landscape photography.  Oh, I could go on and on, but enough is enough (that wasn't planned..just came out)...Doug

Me too Doug! I'm always watching TVLand.

I didn't know you were an artist Doug! That's wonderful! Several members here are artists too! I'm not sure if they paint/draw on a professional leve (make a living from their artwork) but they are quite good. Kerry is a very talented artist. He posted a photo of one of his paintings once. It was beautiful! I have also seen paintings from Geri (Arad) and Artiste! You should post pictures of your paintings. We would love to see them!  :D

Thanks Doug!

Hi Lee!

I'm not sure if I remember the "sasquatch" episodes, but  I do remember Lee Majors and the "Six Million Dollar Man". Yeah, he was very hot. I had a crush on him too!  :D

Hey Susie,

I looooved Starsky and Hutch too. ;D  I dreamed about them at night.  I wrote tons of fanfic in my head and I was just about thirteen.  I was so in love with Hutch (David Soul). :D :D :D

Before them, it was the Waltons and Little House on the Prairie, and before that, Family Affair.

As a kiddie, I was into Joe 90, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlett and Fireball XL5  ::)

From teens to early twenties I loved Starsky and Hutch, Buck Rogers and, most of all, Dallas!!  8)

I still love to catch the reruns of Dallas .... the giant stetsons, huge shoulder pads, big hair and Pammy in soft focus hmmmmmmm!


Susie xox



Hi Susie!!

Yeah, Dallas was a really good show. I also loved Dynasty and Remington Steele.  :D

Hi Susie,

I was always true to Hutch.  Even a few years ago when I watched them again on rerun.  I wonder if there is a correlation between Starsky/Hutch preference and Jack/Ennis preference?

Yeah I loved LHOTP and the Waltons, actually I think I always liked the Waltons better, and I still can watch that too.
