Therapeutic Television – Sitcoms of the Sixties

therapeutic televison

Hello friends, do you sometimes feel overwhelmed with all the sex, violence and unrealistic reality programming on television today?  I know sometimes I just want to turn on the set, sit back, relax and laugh while watching old skool sitcoms?  

Thanks to television stations like Antenna TV, Me-TV and Cozi TV I oftentimes get a chance to do just that, and this is just a partial list of some of  my favorites: me-tv-logo

  • Gidget
  • The Flying Nun
  • Good Times
  • Mork and Mindy
  • Maude
  • Alfred Hitchcock Presents Antenna_TV_Logo_-_Orange_-_cropped_400x400
  • Father Knows Best
  • Sanford and Son
  • WKRP in Cincinnati
  • Three’s company
  • Adam-12 cozi
  • Gilligan’s Island
  • The Beverly Hillbillies
  • Night Gallery
  • Perry Mason
  • Different Strokes


If you put me on a desert island, I could be happy for years just watching these shows and snacking on chips.  How about you, what are some of your favorite old skool television shows?  

Stay Blessed ~ No Stress in 2014!

Why I Liked TVOne's Belle's

TVOne just ended it’s first season of their new sitcom, Belle’s starring veteran actors Ella Joyce, Keith David and  Miguel Nunez as well as Elise Neil and newly minted reality actress and home girl (money earning Mt. Vernon) Tami Roman.  The show is narrated by 12 year old Nadka Alaya as Pam in a role similar to Aaron Meeks as Ahmad in Soul Food.   However, unlike Soul Food, this is light comedy, not forced comedy like Roc or The Hughley’s or extreme unreality like Basketball Wives, light comedy similar to Sparks.

As a “fifty something”  wife and mother, I enjoyed this show for several reasons: the time, 10 pm on Friday…end of the work week…after dinner…after hubby and sons have gone to their rooms…after weekly home pedicure…and after the 4th glass of Red Wine has kicked in. Light comedy with an excellent cast of characters that appear to work well together, great guest appearances like Wendy Williams and Gary Dourdan, a show that I hope remains on the air for a long time.

Thank you, TVOne for bringing family programming that I truly enjoy!
