My parents are children of the 40s (late 40s). I was a child of the 70s and 80s, which means dallas hit right as I was a young child. We had one "big" TV and watching anything else when dallas was on was a hopeless wish. It's the only show I remember as a kid where I wasn't allowed to talk when it was on.It's going back a bit, but 'Dallas' was quite entertaining in it's time.
Wasn't Better Call Saul a spin off from Breaking Bad?Can't wait for the next season of 'Better Call Saul', the best American show since 'Breaking Bad'. 'Mad Men' has to get a mention too...
Before digital TV, it was a big deal to have a continuously running rerun/sydication (now there are 2 to 6 channels for every broadcast network here, so there's reruns of everything all the time. Star trek is one of the shows that seems to have always been in reruns at least somewhere. Seinfeld is the other that comes to mind that still plays somewhere. Fox (the network, not the news channel) didn't have enough of their own content to run current material all the time, so they used to run reruns from about 5-8 every night (always roseanne or seinfeld, and then roseanne sort of went out of style quickly as it was about a struggling family with one person in the trades and another working at a factory and then taking odd jobs. The whole country idealized urbanization after that and out went the shows about marginal folks unless they were fit and young).I like Star Trek to escape into so have watched all of them since I was a kid and still look forward to new ones like Picard, Star Trek Discovery and even the animated one from last year.
Prodigal Son is back for a second season in a couple days and that is a must watch, as was Hannibal from a few years ago. Nice and dark. Bates Motel was a very good one that was shot near where I used to live.
Always loved Who's Line Is It Anyway, both from your side of the pond and this side. The new ones are a scream too.
I'm surprised it was popular there - it was popular here mostly because it wasn't either:Well Rosanne was a massively popular show in it's time over here. amazes me that Darleen's boyfriend still looks like he's 15, even in the big bang
Absolutely loved ST in the TNG/DS9 era. Could easily watch them all over again. Haven't seen the newer ones (series I mean, not the films which are OK)But star trek has remained, and now the original is back on here. one of the .x channels (sub network channel) shows the original, TNG, and DS9 and voyager every night. Every single night......I didn't like TNG that much as a teenager, but somehow, it's a better show now than it was then.
It was definitely better than Dynasty!My parents are children of the 40s (late 40s). I was a child of the 70s and 80s, which means dallas hit right as I was a young child.
