I'm a big fan of Maverick, The Dick Van Dyke Show (original one) and The Andy Griffith Show.  They have well survived the ravages of time.  Too many of my old favorites are hopelessly dated now and simply don't have the impact they once did.  

 

One genre that ages incredibly well is the Musical Variety Shows.  Old Danny Kaye, Perry Como, Andy Williams, Jackie Gleason shows are all great still!

How old is "old"? I could give you a long list of TV shows I grew up watching. "Ivanhoe" (RIP, Roger Moore), "William Tell", "Robin Hood", "Sea Hunt", "Highway Patrol", "Whirleybirds", "Ripcord".....and I have not even started on the westerns. Fortunately, many of these are now on DVD.

The TV western series "Laramie", with John Smith and Robert Fuller is one that we remember well and still watch today on tv.

@doglover52, I do remember Big Valley being on, but don't remember watching it much. I liked Barbara Stanwyck. I think I had paper dolls of her when I was a kid.

I loved this show when it  aired on ABC '65-'69,"Barkley' family,set in the 1870's.A terrific cast,Barbara Stanwyck,Linda Evans,Richard Long,Peter Breck,Lee Majors.  I had a crush on one of the actors,Richard Long"Jarrod". Linda and Lee are only cast members still alive. Sue
