    Gunsmoke, Bonanza & The Rifleman are watched regularly here. Yippie-ki-yay!

    Wife watches Emergency, Hawaii 5-0 and a few others. I like the Rockford Files.

    We get Dennis the Menace, Bachelor Father, Burns and Allen, Jack Benny, Leave it to Beaver, Father Knows Best and several other shows of the 50s to early 60s on one network here.

    I would love it if they showed the Honeymooners, one of the best shows ever. :thumbsup:

    I remember The Millionaire. I would like to see Zorro and Superman as well.

    Although it wasn't a '50's show, I did like watching Emergency.......I was working at a funeral home at the time.

    I vaguely remember watching The Millionaire. It certainly had an interesting plot line.

    I would rather have the tv shows of the 70s. All in the Family. Sanford & Son. Laverne & Shirley. Taxi. Three's Company. WKRP in Cincy. Welcome Back Kotter. CHiPs. Good Times. Happy Days.

    Used to enjoy Rod Serling's Night Gallery (TV Series 1969–1973) & The Fugitive (1963–1967) with David Janssen, but those aren't 50's TV Rama.

    Technically speaking, the original Twilight Zone was a 50's show, that came out in '59. That was my older brother's and my favorite show all time. We also liked Outer Limits.

    Lots of good shows in the very early 60's like the Beverly Hillbillies, Mr. Ed, My Favorite Martian, The Wonderful World of Disney, Rawhide, Have Gun Will Travel, etc...

    Anybody remember Thriller back in the 50s? That was a scary show. Another show that comes to mind is Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

    Man, there was lots of good TV back then.

    Someone mentioned Superman. I thought that show and Batman had the hokiest "special effects". But then again, during that time, it was probably pretty high tech stuff.

    Batman lost me forever when he and Robin were hanging from a helicopter, and a foam shark was attached to Robin's leg. To which Batman said, "Hurry Robin, get the shark repellant!" Just so happens Robin had some in his utility belt. Imagine that!! :rolleyes: I changed the channell and never went back........
