    Oh, my goodness, I thought I was the only person left who remembers Here Come The Brides! :eek: I had a huge crush on Bobby Sherman way back in the day! :tongue3:

    Let's see, my list...

    The Waltons--my all time favourite
    Andy Griffith Show
    Mary Tyler Moore
    My Three Sons
    The Dick Van Dyke Show
    MASH (the first few seasons)
    and at least a dozen more from the 60's and 70's that I can't recall now

    Oh--and Captain Kangaroo, from when I was very young. :smilewinkgrin:

    Actually I enjoyed MASH in its later years. The first 2 or 3 years a big part of the plot of "Hot Lips" and also Major Burns was show as a religious nut/hypocrite.

    The later years the show became for of a comedy/drama. Often they would use real world instances in the plot. For example there was an episode where Klinger had a certain sickness and the 2 majors assumed he was just "riding" sick call. At the end of the show, they showed a stat about how this certain disease did effect many Mid-eastern personnel. One show that I remember was when a GI show critically wounded on Christmas Day - during the cease fire true. The doctors tried to save him - but he died about 10 minutes before midnight. One doctor moved the clock to 10 minutes past - so his kids would not have to think of Christmas as the day their Dad died. Many other heart warming scenes/episodes.

    Gunsmoke -- have written many fanfic stories based on setting, including a novelette crossed with the movie, Shenandoah.
    Leave it to Beaver -- have written a few fanfics, including the story of how Ward and June met.
    The High Chaparral
    The Andy Griffith Show
    Dragnet (50's series and 60's revival)
    Hawaii Five-O (the classic; I'm losing interest in this new one)
    I Love Lucy
    My Three Sons
    Bonanza (though it struggled too hard to be 'relevant' contemporarily)
    The Law Man
    The Waltons

    I think that was their best episode.

    Salty: So, who's better, Frank Burns or Charles Emmerson Wincheter III?

    A lot of the medical people in Korea were civilians in uniform, and that was how they behaved.

    The show was very close to what happened in Korea.

    Cheers,

    The only reason I clarified my post as 'the first few seasons' is that I never got around to watching much of the later seasons. We only had one tv set at the time, and I think my parents watched something else during that time slot. Plus, I was working by then and was probably working a lot of the evenings MASH was on. I'll have to try and catch up on some of the later episodes when they're aired again sometime. I did of course, along with almost everyone else on the planet, watch the last episode. It was superb. :thumbsup:

    Loveday - this webpage may allow you to watch on-line

    Arbo, I like Chuck better. One episode he was trying to help a young GI who stuttered. At the end of the show, he was playing a tape recording from his sister - who also stuttered.
    Even thought Chuck at time thought he was in the upper class, there were times we saw his more sensitive side.

    The reason that meant so much to me is that as a child, I had a very severe speech defect. Over the years with proper training, my speech has now been corrected.:godisgood: That sure helps being a preacher :thumbsup:
