Great shows from the past

does anyone remember the UK series Robin of Sherwood I downloaded the other day and started watching it with g/f she had never seen it being a Canadian lol she went mad over it ended up watching the entire first season on sun afternoon with her forgotten how good it was. Does anyone else have some old shows they miss, I am thinking from at least 2o years ago

@captsheridan
That was a magical series in several senses. In a way it was two series, with Michael Praed's man-of-the-people and Jason Connery's wronged-nobleman. I'm not sure why they did that, maybe they wanted to cover more aspects of the legend, or maybe there was something contractual. Also Clannad's score was spot on for the supernatural feel of the series

Hogans Heroes still classic humour and routines

3 Stooges - they reinvented slapstick and we are still imitating it today

The Munsters - loved the car. Charles Manson chained to the dog house out back would've been a nice touch. Ok - forget CM - the show was good for its time.

the magical show for me was the year 1967 and the "avengers"..lots of good tv and movies in 1967 but a british
show took the tone and style and ran with it. even james bond ran a close second. it was unbelieveable[the plots] but totally engaging. this will always be special above all other years.

I thought "The Prisoner" with Patrick McGoohan continued where the Avengers left off with that suspension of belief settings and storylines

Which Maid Marian? The first one played by Bernadette O'Farrell or the 2nd Marion played by Patrica Driscoll - I preferred the 2nd one - but they were both good

I wish they would bring back The Muppet Show, we have seasons 1 & 2 on dvd. I know Jim Henson's son, Brian can do it since he follows in his father's legacy. You get Brian & Frank Oz together & a writer that is similar to Jerry Juhl. BOOM!! More Muppets..... now I think I'm gonna go watch some.

Thanks you guys, I hope to see more and more classic TV on video streaming.

Glad I found this site, it's really easy to use and I haven't had a video not be available or lock up yet.

Right now I'm going through the original Outer Limits, I loved that show as a kid.

@softwizz

I would suggest all these reasons.

1. 'Allo 'Allo was a sit-com.
2. Each character had a unique style and most had catchphrases.
3. Renee involved the audience at the start of each episode.
4. It had 2 humourous running storylines.a. the British Airmen and b. the Fallen Madonna with the big boobies.

5. Most of all it stopped people thinking about the realities of war.

and with that and 'I shall say zis only once' 'good moaning'

It did have it's moments but when you look at the series as a whole, it really didn't develop - it used the same jokes retold over and over

It's real attribute is that it didn't require any thinking - the humour was obvious, slapstick and very remenicient of the shows we used to watch at the local play house - you could laugh at it without worrying that about any offense

The show allowed you to relax, take it easy, rest a spell - Hmm where was that line from?????

Yep another show that delivered the same type of relxed "don't have to think about it" style - more family orientated and definately aimed at the very staid american market

Not a sin Softwizz - I like some shows that make me think and then there are those that don't require any participation at all

Both are good
