View Full Version : Old TV shows

Recently I've been collecting some old TV shows on DVD. I guess it started when I saw that my uncle had all of the old Wild Wild West series. That was one of my favorites to watch after school in my teenage years. That started bringing back memories and I rather like "reliving my childhood" through the old shows. Of course some episodes I don't remember seeing, which is even better. Some of my other favorites are Lost in Space, Mission: Impossible, Superman, and The Addams Family. My brother, an airplane pilot and western fan, is into Sky King.

Now if they would only release the Batman series! There are some rip-off copies on the internet, but I hear those are bad quality, if you even receive them, as they're sold illegally. :(

When I was young I never missed Batman, I understand what your sayin' that would be sweet to get them on DVD.
Do you remember those old cartoons, that showed the future? They had a car with a glass bottom, a futuristic kitchen, a car that gave you a shave on the way to work - I would like to watch those again ;)

Do you mean the Jetsons? You can get those on DVD. I don't have those, but I do like Pink Panther, Underdog and the Rocky & Bullwinkle show (especially the way-back machine segments).

LOL, I remember the way back machine :)
But the cartoon I was refering to wasnt the Jetsons, it wasnt a series from what I remember. They were like shorts, maybe 15 min. long.

I would love to get a DVD of all the Baa Baa Black Sheep shows which later became Black Sheep Squadron. They were the stories of Pappy Boyington, the Marine aviator that fought in the Pacific. The lead was Robert Conrad. That was one of the best shows ever put on TV. Perfect casting, humor, drama, history, and pure entertainment.

They have started coming out on DVD -- at least season 1 is available, in 2 volumes. Try Amazon.com.

After I posted today, I thought of Amazon. I buy books from them but have not thought of getting DVD's from them. Thanks for the suggestion. Now, I will have to look and see if there are some other favorite shows there. I think I will need a bigger bank account!:D:D:D

I know what you mean -- Amazon's "Recommendations for Stan" are most helpful in draining Stan's bank account! :o

FWIW......I am often wanting to buy books, especially from a specific author. I go to Amazon and see what they have and the costs and then I double check the authors web site. I have often found better deals there. I was able to find a full set of one authors books from a dealer on their website for $50....and that was for 17 books all in great condition. They would have cost me considerably more to track them all down and buy them individually at Amazon. But, Amazon is a good place to start to see what is there...and then you know how many pennies you have to save up! :D:D:D:D:D
