Remember when you could turn on the TV set and not be bombarded with hordes of “reality” shows?

Let’s take a trip down Memory Lane and recall the shows most of us grew up with but now probably can only find on TVLand or Nick at Nite. Remember when you used to race home to see:

Dark Shadows

Dallas, (Who shot J.R.? Most kids today probably don’t even know who J.R. was)

Hee-Haw (I’m-a–Pickin!)

Knots Landing

Fantasy Island (De plane, boss! De plane!)

Family Ties

The Love Boat

Night Court

The Beverly Hillbillies

The Monkeys, (Hey, hey, we’re the Monkeys!)

Magnum P.I.

The Twilight Zone

Three’s Company

Beverly Hills 90210

Little House on the Prairie


Murder, She Wrote

Sanford and Son

Star Trek

Home Improvement

The A-Team

The Andy Griffith Show

U.S. Army, Gomer Pyle (Well, go-ool-ly!)

The Brady Bunch

or game shows like Press Your Luck (with the whammy), The Match Game, Joker’s Wild or my favorite, Name That Tune!
