Coming home from school to watch reruns of this:

Oh yeah, COMBAT. I used to watch it at night before it went into reruns. I was greatly saddened much later upon learning of Vic Morrow's decapitation while filming for a movie.

Wow, COMBAT! That intro brings back memories.

But the show that really laid down the tiles of the dank basement of my soul was the original 60s THE OUTER LIMITS.

I just watched Honey West on the ME channel. My mom let me stay up late one summer to watch because I loved the ocelot.

I had a crush on Anne Francis, but didn't watch the show much as I was restricted in TV watching time. Asides from COMBAT, I liked 12 O'CLOCK HIGH, THE UNTOUCHABLES, THE JACKIE GLEASON SHOW, GILLIGAN'S ISLAND, McHALE'S NAVY, TWILIGHT ZONE and several others

>8 tungsten_peerts:
...and F TROOP (who could forget Jane with indigenous tribal back-up playing a Dylan cover - 60s weirdness), THE MUNSTERS, MAN FROM UNCLE, GET SMART, HOGAN'S HEROES, etc.

But then again, this topic has been beat to death on these previous threads.

I'm just getting old and forgetful...

If anyone has the time, COMBAT! episodes and those of others, are of course available on Youtube. No commercials!

>11 Sandydog1:

those are some of the shows that were intended for 'several others' (>10 chg1:), but we both neglected to mention THE ADAMS FAMILY!

I haven't seen a lot of the previous threads and don't have the time/interest for things like U2ub.

Well, not sure that this exactly fits this thread but I just posted it on the Green Dragon's bad joke thread and thought y'all might enjoy it too. I 'borrowed' it from a dementia caregiver newsletter.

It's been a long time since anyone has posted here...Did anyone catch the 40th Anniversary Special of Saturday Night Live? That brought back some memories...I remember the first few years, it was practically mandatory to hang out at someone's house to watch SNL. The first cast is still, IMO, the best ever.

Someone sent me this the other day — about kids reacting to a typewriter. Hilarious!

>15 theexiledlibrarian: Yep I saw the SNL special. I was surprised there was no more of John Belushi than there was. I happened to run into his entourage during the "Lemmings" tour, before SNL, where he did his famous impression of Joe Cocker. In the 70's kicking back on Saturday night was a party without the hassle of "going out".

My dad taking TV tubes to the hardware store and the big machine that tested them. Racks of replacement tubes, too.

I was just thinking yesterday of when my father would take his shirts to the dry cleaner. There used to be a choice to have your shirts hung or folded. He always chose folded, and they would come in a white cardboard box, with maybe 6 in each box. To keep the shirts neatly folded, each shirt had a piece of cardboard that it was folded around. I think one side may have been white and shiny and the other side light gray and matte. He always used to let me have the pieces of cardboard and I would use them to draw pictures, make paper dolls, and many other things.

>22 rretzler: My current dry cleaner offers the option of shirts hung or folded. I assumed that was common. No?

>23 Sandydog1: It used to be relatively cheap to have that done. And it sure took a huge burden off the household.

>23 Sandydog1: I just got a new tv and it needed repair due to a faulty high-end piece of technology. I was talking to the repair guy about how the job of tv repairman basically went away for 40 years, and now due to complex and finicky new tech, it's back again.
