Good Times

Given the recent purchase of YouTube by Google, I was inclined to have a look at their site. Personally I was never really interested in youtube since I didn'thave any desire to watch weirdo's do wheely's on their bikes...then fall off. Beyond the fact that you could watch that kind of thing over and over again and still laugh, I really I didn't see the allure of it. ;-)

But I could see the potential. Wouldn't you rather watch your reality television over youtube...over the net. I would. Television nowadays really sucks! There isn't anything on! Remember the good'ol days when there wasn't reality television? You could watch a mindless show for half an hour have all the problems of the world solved in a jiff and then wait till next week to see what else could possibly happen. These were the glory days of boob tube...the original YouTube.

Anywho...I was doing some searches and compiled a listing of some interesting old shows I used to watch. It's my top ten 80's shows. The kinds of shows you just couldn't go wrong with. I agree that this list will probably date me...and there are some of you out there that probably never heard of these shows. That would probably be you Jwerx (You poor lost soul.)

But if your over 27 you probably know or have seen these. Enjoy.

What happened to "Family Ties","Designing Women", "the Muppets", "Full House", or "Kate and Allie?"

Man, I was a young sitcom junkie, and those sitcoms are now obsolete, tossed to the not-so-primetime hours in favour of hour-long dramas like Grey's Anatomy and Lost.

BOOO. I miss my cheesy sitcoms!

I know...those sitcoms were the best. I wish I had the Deja-Vu channel to be able to watch those old shows again.

Were you a TGIF watcher also?

TGIF!!! Yes, that was me, too.

And I was very sad when Bog Saget decided to whore himself out to America's Funniest Home Videos (the beginning of reality TV, as far as I am concerned).

It's all your fault Bob Saget!!!
