I know you were young and all, but do you remember any television show you enjoyed in the late 70's going into the 80's?

Yeah, that last one, they are Disney shows. They are far more fun to watch than the reality stuff that seems to be clogging up other channels.

Yeah, that was pretty funny.

I always laughed when he'd be chasing the Dukes and either roll his car or end up in the pond.

Gilligans Island ran from 1964 until 1967

That requires some thought. I remember that we had a series of contests a few years ago where people could vote on sitcoms by decades. I remember that people had a lot of favorites until the nineties when things took a dive.

I am guessing that Monday Night Football doesn't count. As cable stations and renting movies increased, watching a show regularly fell off a bit.

From the eighties to the present I haven't and don't watch very many. In the eighties I was married and we played a lot of board games as a family or watched movies. In the nineties I was out and about and an evening's festivities rarely involved television In this century I watch a lot more sports, old movies, and miscellaneous offerings.

So this short list pretty much is all inclusive of shows that were/are on weekly that I would usually make it a point to watch.

I will just mention some shows in sort of a chronological order as many crossed over into other decades.

All in the Family
Soap
Barney Miller

Fawlty Towers
Crime Story
Law & Order

Southpark
CSI
The Mind of Mencea
The First 48

I hardly watched TV in the 70's. In the first part of the decade I was a high school kid who only wanted to be out with friends and away from home, and the second part I was in college / out on my own, and watching TV was low on the list.

Since then, I still don't watch too much on a regular basis, but over the years the following shows stand out:

Barney Miller
Northern Exposure
LA Law
Law and Order
Mad Men

Gilligans Island ran from 1964 until 1967

There is this term called "reruns", and I watched them in the 70's, and they ran in the evening.

Since I was born in 65, I wasn't watching prime time tv at least until I was 8 or 9 years old...and Gilligan's Island was one of many shows I watched as a kid. Along with Bewitched and I Dream Of Jeannie.

Good grief.
