Favorite TV shows of your Youth..

Recommended Posts

A co-worker and I were just reminiscing, about favorite sitcoms, cartoons and shows we grew up on... This was my first favorite show.. Battle of the Planets/ aka- G FORCE

Apparently the original cartoon was only made for a couple years. I used to think it was the best sh!t on earth, and I even dressed up as Mark - the white one, 3 halloweens in a row.

G-Force - god I get a kick when people remember that. I used to watch it religiously. I probably stopped when I figured out who Casey Kasem was.

I remember an awful lot of time watching WKRP in Cincinnati. That's one I'll confess to cuz I'd still probably think it was good.

I'm a big fan of James Garner, and grew up on both "Maverick" (the B&W series, later starring Jack Kelly and then Roger Moore) and "The Rockford Files". "The Muppet Show" was also a family favourite (it's probably the best family, as opposed to children's, show, ever), along with "M*A*S*H" and "60 Minutes".

Aloha,

Brad

My father died when I was 4. My mom, beinga single mom had to work 2 jobs to make ends meet. She worked at Harveys during the day and after she fed me, she would head out to make some pocket change as a hooker in a tavern in Hull.

It was during those moments alone our 1 bedroom apartment that I would cuddle up with glass of orange crush and bag of chips and escape into the world of NTSC.

My favorite show was the news on CBC. It was educational and it gave me my daily fix of information. I remember crying when the Berlin Wall fell and when that Chinaman was crushed by that tank. I also however remember smiling when Canada won the women's olympic gold medal in Salt Lake City. I've also learned so many wonderful and great things from watching the news on CBC that I will always cherish those moments of connecting with humanity.
