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?
This blog post has been written in front of a live studio audience.
1961 - 1966 / the Dick Van Dyke Show featuring: Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tylor Moore
Catching this show in reruns, the big question for me was always, will he or won't he trip over the ottoman. I was big into comedy on TV, so this was a must watch for me. He writes comedy... for a TV show... and there was the UFO episode! 'nuff said!
1963-TODAY / Doctor Who featuring: William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, John Hurt, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith, Peter Capaldi and many, many more.
I couldn't do a nostalgic TV list without including my ultimate favourite. This is Doctor Who's theme song. The original, you might say. Starting in 1963, his adventures have continued to this day, making it the longest running and most successful science fiction television show of all time. As a youth, there was a day I was bored and my mother told me there was a cool program on PBS called Doctor Who. I decided to look into it and the rest is history.
1979-1985 Dukes of Hazzard Featuring: Tom Wopat, John Schneider, Catherine Bach & Sorrell Booke as Boss Hogg
What 10 year old boy could resist a program about a couple of good ol' boys never meaning no harm as they engaged in endless car chases and stunts. Then there was the crooked commissioner who received his comeuppance each episode. Then there was the beautiful Daisy where the phrase Daisy Dukes came from. Need I say more?
