I've been watching the old westerns lately.  I've been binging on Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and The Rifleman in particular.  They all had good storylines and The Rifleman always seemed to have a good moral at the end of each episode.

I loved My Favorite Martian, have not seen any reruns.  I guess none else loved it! There are lots more I loved.   Now I only watch Acorn & PBS on a regular basis. 


@LaDolceVita  Nice to see you. Hope all is well. Happy New Year to you!

While channel surfing I came across,  H & R Puff and Stuff and The Banana Splits. I also enjoyed  My Favorite Martian. I did see that Murphy Brown is back on the air.

Yes,

Just happen to be channel surfing and came across an episode of the Dick Van Dyke Show. It was really interesting because during this episode, Rob, Laura and Ritchie somehow had dyed their hands black while enroute to a benefit gala where Rob was going to receive an award from a large group of officials who were mostly african american.

I have always loved this show and especially that apartment that is still modern to me to this day, but what I really loved was his concern about diversity, what the group would think of him and telling the truth about how he and his families hands got dyed accidently. I tell you it was epic.

"HILL STREET BLUES" & SOME OF THE STAR TREK " SERIES, ESPECIALLY, "THE NEXT GENERATION"& "VOYAGER". MARSHALL MCLUHAN WROTE SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT OF 'ARTISTS(& WRITERS) ARE THE TRUE PROPHETS, FOR ONLY THEY CAN PREDICT THE FUTURE'. WE CAN LOOK TO SOME OF THE SCIENCE FICTION SERIES TO SEE HOW SPOT-ON THOSE PREDICTIONS ARE!
