Welcome to my A-Z list of 2016.
This year, I'll be recalling some of my favourite programs from television, via A-Z, of course.
How many of these do you remember?
Were these before your time?

1962-1971 The Beverly Hillbillies featuring Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas & Max Baer Jr.
A rags to riches story. What would you do if you had more money than you knew what to do with? If you are anything like me, you'd build your very own cement pond. Granny was my favourite character. She wouldn't let the money change her. Not one bit.
1975-1982 Barney Miller. Featuring Hal Linden, Abe Vigoda, Max Gail, Ron Glass & Jack Soo.
This was probably my first 'cop show' series I loved watching. Most likely because it was funny. No matter what New York city perp was brought in, you knew something funny was about to happen. Just don't drink the coffee.
1979-1981 Buck Rogers in the 25th Century Featuring Gil Gerard & Erin Gray
The late 70s was a good time for me. It gave me Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek reruns and Buck Rogers. I finally knew what I wanted to be when I grew up, a nerd. This show certainly helped develop my inner nerd. As I recall, Erin Gray was my first nerd crush.
