Many of the shows mentioned here can now be watched on a local channel (MeTV - Memorable Entertainment TV - channel 11.2 on network television). It's good to watch them once in a while and let the old memories in.

Old shows were the best, back in the day shows had character and taught great lessons even the war shows. Intrigue and suspense are my favorite now back in the day humor and laughter. All of the shows mentioned above were great shows my all time favorite was "Designing Women" and "The Golden Girls"

Lots of great shows already mentioned but I miss Seinfeld and MASH, great shows, probably many more, but I am too old to remember them now!

Wow! So many good ones listed above. Agree w/most, especially Homicide & West Wing, but I also miss Monk and Psych. Miss the old cartoons too, even Fat Albert. They at least taught a lesson at the end (like Davey & Goliath).

My husband and I both like "Lost in Space". Up until a couple of months ago, we could watch old episodes on MeTV but it was dropped from the line up.

I realized I also miss the original Black Beauty series off of the BBC that played on the newly minted Nickelodeon channel back in 1981. Episodes aired at 6 AM and I gladly got up to watch them.

Star Trek: The Next Generation although I have to say BBC America is doing a good job showing episodes from time to time. Star Trek episodes were absolutely the highlight of my week 1988-1993.

I don't watch a lot of TV, but "Northern Exposure" was a show that captivated me. It was the first (and maybe only) time I had that feeling, "I've got to get home in time to see the show!"

Debbie July 9, 2015 at 8:57 am

I love mysteries! I miss "Murder She Wrote" and the "Closer". The other shows I liked and wish they would come back but those 2 were really great!

Reply

Kelly Jons July 9, 2015 at 8:55 am

Laverne and Shirley; The Facts of Life; Nancy Drew Mysteries, there are so many. Those were the good days.

"Cosby", even with all the controversy going on today about Mr. Cosby. It was still a great show. Great family values.

Reply

Edward July 9, 2015 at 10:45 am

For me, I used to love this show but I cannot say I do anymore. That show seems as if it was a great cover for the double life Mr. Cosby was leading. It's ashame that this is tainted for me now.

Likewise with OJ Simpson movies. He was really good in the Naked Gun movies as a comedic side kick. Definitely not the same after all of his life transgressions.

Dorothy July 15, 2015 at 6:52 am

I love all of the shows mentioned as well even the ones with Mr. Cosby and Mr. Simpson we all have some sort of past that is not all that great. Their past should not diminish the affect of the show because it was not about them it was entertainment. If we dig deep enough we may not ever watch television again with that attitude.

I loved and still love the Cosby's. Its not the man its the character he played that made the show great. Even with the allocations. I still love watching it and what it represented.

A Different World. It offered up a positive view of college life and the skills and network building that would be necessary in the adult world. It also exposed the black youth to the possibility of college and what to expect.

I miss watching the war movies, 'China Beach', 'Baa Baa Black Sheep', all the John Wayne westerns. These give me a glimpse of what our country went through and what price we paid to help others with freedom.
