"Riverboat" is correct. One episode included actor DeForest Kelley. He was later involved in the "Star Trek" series. Something else that the two television series shared: They both had episodes in which Abraham Lincoln was prominent as a character. (This may be hard to explain, if you're not a Trekkie.)

Was it Riverboat?

Even as a Saturday afternoon scary movie kid in the 50's, never liked the zombie black and white movies. Who knew?

 

 


Walking Dead : ).  I have never watched it but maybe I should give it a try!   

 

There are do many old. How's I watched, another of my fsvd was The Avengers with Diana Rigg.  Loved that show!  Netflix is great.

@doglover52  I don't have a cable system. Just use an antenna on which I get 26  stations, and have Netflix.  I don't watch a lot of TV and so I already have more stations and programs than I truly need. 

Today, in Mpls. there will be a Golden Girls Bar Crawl.  I don't go into town, and can't imagine myself at a bar crawl, but I'm sure those going will have a good time.  It starts at 10:30 AM and goes until 4:30 PM, so they obviously are being considerate of the age group.

If I could find Golden Girls, that would be big on my list. Since it's not on antenna TV around my place, I watch Perry Mason, and old Johnny Carson Tonight show reruns. I'd like to find some of the old Mission Impossible shows too.

"...Classic MacGyver had better storylines, and involved a lot more creativity in problem solving, even when he used the latest technology of the time. In one episode, MacGyver builds his own robot. It's hard to beat a classic.....".
That's my impression of a number of series. Older series relied on the story and characters more than special effects. That's a prime reason DW and I switched to almost all Brit TV shows.
