I miss the old days when there were only 6 or 7 channels but lots of Good and Great TV Shows
I literally never watch TV these days. But there was a time when I really enjoyed watching TV. There were the sitcoms like the Odd Couple, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Cheers, and Seinfeld. There were the Sci-fi shows like Star Trek and Lost in Space. Shows like the Twilight Zone and the Six Million Dollar Man and the Beverly Hill Billies. I loved Emergency, Gilligans Island, the Rifleman, I love Lucy, and the Rockford Files.

And, of course, Batman and the Adams Family. There were so many, many more shows that I enjoyed watching. It would take pages to list all the shows I loved to watch over the years. It was the Golden Age of TV between 1970 and 2000. And we would often watch TV as in company with others. It's crazy how many great shows there were over the years. I only watched TV for an hour or so a day but I loved it.

I miss those days of checking the TV schedule in the newspaper to see what shows were on and then sitting down for a good 30 minute or one hour show on the old time network channels.

I like binge watching the old TV shows on Tubi. They are clean, ya know?....Babylon 5, Andromeda, and so many others I've had on my laptop, although often it's just for background noise, and I'm only paying half attention to it.

I'm currently watching Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. I like it, and it's sparkly clean.

I swear, there's some references in this program to some of the odd things we talk about, lol, although I can't remember even one of them at the moment. But after me taking note of it for a third time, I thought to search GLP to see if anyone else had noticed. I haven't done that yet.

Few channels means a lot of money to produce every show, a lot of audience.

A lot of channels means less money to make an hour of TV.

Currently actors are not picked for their skill but for their diversity. Plots were made to be intriguing not to implement a social narrative.

It has been the case since time immemorial that the primitive underclass of wage-dependent slaves consider themselves to be the backbone of society and therefore know full well that everything was better in the past and that young people are good for nothing.

And because these people have barely made it to being human, they naturally don't know that there are people like them in every generation. For thousands and thousands of years.
