DW and I have started going through Netflix offerings and are looking to watch older series we liked. We just started West Wing, for example. I think we'll put ER into the queue. 

   Do you guys like re-watching old series, or not as interesting to you second time around? 


I like "Becker" starring Ted Danson.  It's available on free over-the-air TV in St Louis.

This week's TV Guide has a salute to their choice for the best evening lineup of all time. While they saluted NBC Thursdays (1993: Mad About You, Wings, Seinfeld, Frasier, and L.A. Law and 2007: My Name is Earl, 30 Rock, The Office, Scrubs, and ER, with Friends and Will & Grace helping anchor the night), their choice was CBS Saturday - 1973: Mission Impossible was gone (and Mannix, one of my favorites, had been moved go give MI the spot) and 1972 had been close: Mission Impossible's last year, with All in The Family, The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Bob Newhart Show. The "weak" spot: Bridget Loves Bernie - lasted one year. But, with a little tinkering,  1973's lineup:

All in the Family

M*A*S*H* (which had struggled, but now would become an institution)

The Mary Tyler Moore Show.

The Bob Newhart Show

The Carol Burnett Show (see M*A*S*H: Ditto)

 

Classics, all.

I used to watch these shows too and then the Carol Burnett Show.  This was when good shows came on every night of the week...I miss those days!!

I used to spend my Saturday nights watching Touched by an Angel and then Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman.  I can't find Touched by an Angel anywhere on tv, and Dr. Quinn comes on in the middle of the night.

Er and St. Elsewhere are my favorite shows.  I watch them when they show up.

My absoulte favorite has always been "Toched by an Angel", ever since the series and I still watch them on some DVDs I have.  I wish someone would bring the episodes back occasionally.  For me, they were uplifting, certainly can't hurt during our times right now.    gec

I loved Hawaii 5-0. When I was vacationing there. I was at a restaurant and Jack Lord came in with his wife & entourage.  He was just as handsome in person as he was on TV. And at the table next to us was Jack Lemmon & daughter. What a star filled night.
