    My parents split in 1959 when I was 7, but I remember watching:
    Perry Mason
    Bat Masterson
    Burkes Law
    Twilight Zone
    One Step Beyond

    After the split on our weekends he took me to Bakersfield Speedway on Saturday nights, Dodger games when he could get good tickets (right behind the Home dugout), all the Bond 007 movies, all the Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello beach movies.

    My time with him has always been very special to me, and now I am trying to be as good a Son to him as he was a Father to me. We moved him from Las Vegas to be near us in Oklahoma in Sept. of 2017. Now I take him to OKC AAA Dodger games.

    The first picture was the first home game in 2018.

    We celebrated his 92nd birthday last month and look forward to more Dodger games this year.

    We still watch TV shows together, today was to be the Daytona 500 but it was rained out.

    Youse guys all reminded me of a few more that both my dad and I loved - and my mom hated....

    The Jeffersons - he had a running counter-dialog for the characters though....
    The Three Stooges
    The Untouchables
    Ironside
    The Cisco Kid
    Perry Mason
    Sgt Bilko (You'll Never Get Rich)
    Sanford & Son - again - some counter-dialog scripts here too....
    China Beach - I don't EVEN know why - !?!
    McCloud/MacMillan & Wife/Columbo
    Car 54, Where Are You?


    In the SUPER Gotta-See-It TV Show list was......
    • Soupy Sales - my dad totally loved Soupy Sales!
    • Chicken Soup
    • JAG
    • That Was The Week That Was (TW-3)
    • Northern Exposure

    * I asked my mom once, if she ever watched Archie Bunker - and she said "No, I LIVE with Archie Bunker".

    Lately I've been watching Perry Mason, which my wife always hated, but by the time I got thru Season 01 she's come around. I just have to lower the volume for the theme music.

    Bonanza was one we all watched together. Gunsmoke was another.
    I watched some baseball with Dad and though I didn't watch the news much as a kid, he never missed it.
