There's not much of a Tv market left now. If the channel is not changed during a long commercial break it's probably in a doctor's waiting room. Many people don't have TVs anymore.

Rick, I know you stick your neck out for no one, but could you give us more to work with? Which show are you asking about?

They could call it Lost in Space, maybe?

Space 1999?

Red Dwarf?

speaking of Red Dwarf - a remake with a budget could be fun ... but that might ruin it ...

But I also see no need to 'bring back' old shows - you can always watch the reruns, especially nowadays with intraweb magick.

I recommend that you watch them from the start. Unlike sitcoms, a slow story unfolds video by video.

Here is her show for 05-01-14
05-01-14 What Is Wrong With Me - YouTube
That clip was more interesting than I thought it would be. I really hate to drive anymore, and imagine you do to Artkansas. Is a show that features so much driving really that interesting to watch?

Yeah, what I liked about One Step Beyond is that the stories were supposedly true. Who know if they really were, but it did add to the creepiness factor at the time.

As for bringing back the old shows, I was really just listing the shows that I enjoyed back then and would like to be able to see again. It's good to know that One Step Beyond is available on Hulu now.

Bring back old TV shows? If you want a real hoot, you should listen to OLD TIME RADIO. I have my kid hooked on "Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar" that we listen to on my phone at bed time. Johnny Dollar is about the exploits of an insurance investigator, as told via his expense account (seriously).

If you like science fiction, there's Dimension X, X-1, and some others. Detective stories are plentiful. Westerns - there's "Have G-u-n, Will Travel" and "Fort Laramie" and "Gunsmoke." You'll recognize a lot of voices - many of those actors successfully made the jump to TV.

Guns are an important part of american history. If it where not for firearms the west would not have been won.

you can't say "***" on BF? What the f**k?

I love MTM and Newhart, we just watched all those too. As well as Dragnet, Adam 12, Kojak, Starsky & Hutch (starring that red torino) etc etc.

How about.. UFO?


If you were young, and male, and it was the early 70s, chances are good that you watched this. It was shown in most markets. Times varied,
but Saturday afternoon was a good bet. And,, Those babes on the moon! Hello, Y Chromosome.

So, would it make a good "reboot"? It might, if it were done right. No kids or cute stuff. No computers that give snarky back talk.
Good, serious science fiction, and it just might work.

I didn't think in 1970 that purple hair would be one of the things they would get right about the future. Per Wikipedia, several efforts have been made to bring UFO back to television or make it a movie, but none have panned out. Curiously, one of them apparently morphed in to a show called Space: 1999.

There was a Canadian show on at the same time called Star Lost which had Harlan Ellison and Ben Bova involved in the production. If you ever want to see what nervous television executives can do to the products of brilliant writers watch it. Calling it horrible is a disservice to the definition of the word.

Well, looks like Reboot is getting brought back. That could be interesting. I have to think that the characters will be remodeled a bit, if nothing else adding hair and subsurface scattering to their faces.

Yes, The focus is on the people, but some times when she is going through various places she cranks up the speed of the motion and accompanies it with quite a variety of music. Some times there is little driving, like recently when she spent several days attending to a major breakup, divorce I think. Other times she has spent time at truck shows or museums.

UFO? That one slipped under my radar, but I was an avid watcher of Space 1999, that is until the Star Wars movie aired.

No question about it...Barney Miller.
Here is a clip from a show from the mid-1970's, so funny.

yes - might have had to share it instead.

Yes history is always being revised, I've been watching "america unearthed" on the history channel its very interesting to hear theories and see the supporting evidence about the pre Columbus history of the U.S.
