Thursday Thirteen #2

The Thirteen Favorite TV Shows of My Childhood (which clearly date me, I know):

1. Emergency! (brought a whole new excitement to passing a fire engine on the road)
2. CHiPs (all pre-teen girls had a preference: Ponch or Jon?)
3. Shazam! and
4. Isis (when Marvel and DC comics still ruled Saturday mornings... )
5. Wonder Woman (Really... what girl in her right mind would not want to run around town in go-go boots and a headband? Too cool...)
6. Mork n' Mindy (My weary mother once asked, When are you going to stop saying "Na noo, Na noo"??)
7. Charlie's Angels (who was Charlie, anyway?)
8. Fantasy Island (da plane! da plane!)
9. Diff'rent Strokes ("Whatchoo talkin' 'bout?" did not go over very well in our house)
10. The Bionic Man- and Bionic Woman too, in the name of egalitarianism (If only *I* could make that really cool sound when I ran down the road...)
11. Little House on the Prairie
12. The Love Boat (to be Vicki on the Love Boat or Mary on Little House... an impossible choice!)
13. The Incredible Hulk (made me afraid to go into my back yard after dark for a solid two years...)

If you are ever tempted to reminisce about "the good old days" in TV... go back and watch some of these reruns. Some (most?) of these shows were awful! Maybe the "good old days" of TV was in the 60's?

Ah the Love Boat, can still sing the song :o) And I loved the Waltons too, I'd have to add that to my list. Oh and btw ~ Ponch!

Hugs and happy TT,
Sweet like Kitty

I watched all of these shows, too. I've tried to go back and watch them, and only Little House doesn't seem to be so goofy. Maybe these shows were only meant to be watched by someone under age 12?

I asked the doctor about giving her something, but he said she's still too little. They said it would be ok to give her a bottle with just water in it. Since the flight is so short, I can feed her at take off (if she doesn't change her current schedule), but I won't be able to feed her again before we land. Anyway, thanks for the advice. I'm sure we'll use it once she gets a little older!! :-) See you soon!

I don't watch any tele so if the lists are current tele I am lost.
I can relate to your list becuase I at least watched a show or two of most of them. Yes Who is Charlie? I always wondered. Of all the ones on the list I watched Little House on the Prarie the most.
Do you remember courtship of Eddie's father?
Terrific Thursday Thirteen!
My TT is posted.
Have a wonderful day!
Happy TT'ing!

Those were some of my favorites in my teenage years. I've often thought of doing a "Thursday 13" with my favorite shows from the 60's. I haven't done a "Thurs 13" yet, so you've inspired me.

Sigh. The good ole' days.
