Therapeutic Television – Sitcoms of the Sixties
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:
- The Flying Nun
- Good Times
- Mork and Mindy
- Alfred Hitchcock Presents
- Father Knows Best
- Sanford and Son
- WKRP in Cincinnati
- Three’s company
- 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!
Some of these are still good while others are just too corny now.
I know, it’s amazing what we grew up watching, especially in comparison to today’s programming!
A friend of mine used to work her lunch time around the Andy Griffith Show. They are a little “corny” as imagesbytdashfield mentioned, but they’re comforting too.
Barney Fife was a hoot, but I loved the relationship with Andy and Opie, corny yes, but heart warming too. Thank you.
Vintage tv is awesome. I love old westerns – Bonanza, Gunsmoke, The Rifleman, and Big Valley.
Robin, Bonanza and Gunsmoke are on Me-TV – I watched a few episodes during the holiday.
I love old television shows on TVLand. They are some of my favorite. I do feel so overwhelmed with TV shows now a days. It’s like everywhere you look there’s crime, sex and profanity. I hate having to constantly worry that Bee will here or see something that she shouldn’t so I keep a parental control on everything she watches.
Yes, when the boys were younger I didn’t realize just how much profanity was on television programming. Now they are older yet my ears are still assaulted by too many curse words and I have to give them the look – like turn that ish off! Have a wonderful weekend.
