Is it just me, or is quality stuff like those old shows just gone from TV now days? There sure seems to be a creativity void with network TV and movies.
In some cases I would say "Don't talk too soon."
I have fond memories of shows from my youth. "Mork & Mindy", "Buck Rogers", "The A-Team" and most of all "Battlestar Galatica."
Of course I have had ample opportunity to see these beloved shows of my youth thanks to the abundance of "Retro" TV channels and it hurts to realise that these shows were, well, bad. Really, really bad. So bad it hurts.
Thankfully some shows, dare I say "Knight Rider" and "WKRP" hold up thanks to low expectations (Knight Rider) and just plain old quality (WKRP, the old WKRP with the real music.).
A while ago a friend and I were reminiscing about a show we both enjoyed called "Quark." Of course a sadness came over us when we realized that the show probably sucked.
Ah, the innocence of youth.
