« oh my word "Interruptions" - Wednesday, April 4 | Main | Signs of Spring - Friday April 6 »



It's hard to remember that far back, but I did watch Little House on the Prairie, The Love Boat, The Donny and Marie Show, Brady Bunch, Eight is Enough and The Muppets, but I seem to remember watching most of them as reruns in the afternoon. I wonder if I watched any prime time tv back then.

I wish I could say I remembered all of these but I had a little help from the internet. But I did love all of these shows during the 70's and remember "how" I watched them. Some (like The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie) I watched snuggled up with my Mom in her room and others I watched with my brothers while my parents were out. We even had our dinner in front of the TV which was absolutely forbidden while watching the Saturday night shows. Great memories!!

Wow...this is a road I wish I hadn't started down this morning...I've been down a very long memory lane. While I remembered many of the shows mentioned, I followed Beth to an internet seach...bad move...I am shocked at how many things I can say I "watched". I always had my nose in a book, so it shocks me at what I viewed over ten years. I noticed patterns, ones watched with my youngest brother, or things that were Mum's favorites...and things I enjoyed too, then there are some that were my personal favs. I won't repeat what's been shared already, so how many of these do you remember?

1. H.R. Pufnstuff
2. Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp
3. B.J. and the Bear
4. Petticoat Junction
5. The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
6. Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
7. Chico and the Man
8. All in the Family
9. Ellery Queen
10. The Bobby Goldsboro Show
11. The Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show
12. Alias Smith and Jones
13. Rockford Files
14. Black Sheep Squadon (aka. Baa Baa Blacksheep)
15. Emergency!
16. The Streets of San Francisco
17. Ironsides
18. CHiPs
19. Petrocelli
20. The Paper Chase

wow...glad that's over ten years!

In case you want to relive some 70's moments this site has tons including theme songs for many of the shows. http://www.retrojunk.com/tv/list/1970/2/pop/0/1/ and make your own list.

Well, it is hard to remember that far back, but I was already married as a college senior, in grad school, then teaching with not so much time to watch tv; mid-late 70s I had small boys which led to entirely different programs. Some of my favorites were:
1. Little House on the Prairie (our son at 2 called it Little Prairie on the House)
2. Happy Days
3. MASH (still my favorite in reruns...)
4. The Love Boat
5. The Muppet Show - loved the double layer of humor, some of which was aimed at the adult not the kids
6.Eight Is Enough
7. Medical Center
8. My Three Sons
9. The Waltons
10. Ironsides
I remember lots of the others named, too, but don't remember watching on a regular basis. Some of those old favorites show up on oldies stations and are just as good this time around.

Julie Miller-Oconnor

I agree with most of the above. I'll make mine short.
1. Green Acres
2. Rockford Files
3. The Gong Show
4. Prisoner Cell Block H - was a strange British late night soap opera type show. I was hooked as an older teenager.
5. Scooby Doo
6. Sanford and Son
7. The Partridge Family
8. Hawaii Five O
