Speaking of reruns, did anyone else play "Hi, Bob" in college? (It was a drinking game involving the Bob Newhart show)

Downton Abbey

Great acting

No commercial every 15 minutes telling you to consult a doctor if you have a Woodrow lasting more than four hours

No news feed every 30 minutes designed to keep you on edge

Both sides of my family are English. Hearing the euphemisms on the show is like listening to my parents or grandparents have a conversation when they were alive.

Oh, about Monk - Sharona or Natalie? (sorry, you can't do both).
It's About Time! I remember that one, and My Mother The Car.

How about "When Things Were Rotten"? Mel Brooks, 1975.

Awh, come on... Back in those days, we didn't care about the safety of cars. We had metal dashes with no padding. We often had either no seatbelts or at most just lap belts. And we didn't wear them anyway. Our solution to safety in an accident was to just NOT GET IN AN ACCIDENT. We had cars that had standard transmissions, non-powered brakes, manual roll down windows, non-powered steering, hard metal steering wheels, and the only air bag we had was when our old lady was riding with us and she wouldn't quit talking. Cars were a lot lighter back then without all those creature comforts and the old VW Bug would get 25 mpg even with the original body on it.

I will admit to watching "Charmed" when I stumbled across it on reruns at one time. But only for the eye candy (Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan mainly).

Invisble man with David McCallum. I waited for that show each week back when I was in elementary school.

I watched that as well. Even as a kid, I was into handguns. I seem to remember the FBI guy had a custom S&W Auto, like a Devel or ASP??

Great show. I don't think I would call it obscure though. It was a pretty big hit for a few years.

I guess the same could be said for some of the ones I mentioned though.

Streethawk. It only aired I think 8 episodes before they yanked it, but as a kid, I thought it was great.

I just cant remember the name of it.
Andy Griffith was the pilot. It started out as a TV Movie I think and it was popular enough they made a one-season Sunday Night TV show out of it.

SALVAGE 1!!!!! (Thank you IMDB!) Bad bad bad show. The whole thing was the gub'mint trying to shut him down as he tried to launch rockets. Funny stuff.

Smothers Brothers was great. Also great when they re-hashed it in the late 80's. It died a quiet death, but DANG it was very good produced television.

Baretta.
As I recall, wasn't Mark McCormick's nickname "Skid Mark" ?

Don't know if this counts as obscure but I was a major Air Wolf fan. Never, ever missed a episode!

I wouldn't call it obscure, but more of a guilty pleasure, from 1990 - 1994 I kept up with Beverly Hills 90210 pretty religiously.

Best,

Dave
