FWIW, yesterday I discovered that we have a new channel on Comcast...or an old one that changed programming.
They were carrying Marcus Welby, Adam-12, Emergency!, Quincy, Rockford Files.... all kinds of shows that I hadn't seen in years!
That’s cool they’re running all those shows I use to watch all of them. It’s stuff that’s fun to see but I wouldn’t necsesaraly want to get the DVDs for all of them. There use to (maybe still is) a cable/sat channel I think called “TV Land” that showed that stuff. Can’t remember if it was them or Sci-fi who use to show “Land of the Giants” and “Wonder Woman” reruns in the morning.
Space cowboys? I remember how excited the whole family was when the first episodes came out because we were all avid scifi readers. Years later the series seems so cheesy. I guess maybe thats just a measure of how far the genre has come. If the original Star Trek is cheesy, Lost In Space (which I loved at the time) is just god awful.
I’m still a big Sci-fi nut so even though many of those shows do seem cheesy I’ve still gotten a lot of them. I got smoking deals on “Lost in Space,” “Space 1999,” “UFO,” “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.” “Isis.“ I’ve got all the Tom Baker “Dr Who” but it’s on Beta and in serious need of an upgrade (at least it was from PBS so no commercials).
Lots more I want to collect still.
