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.
1963-1965 / the Outer Limits featuring: Different cast each week
Yes, this was before my time. Yes, I have seen every episode. In my teens, I had an older friend who invited me over quite frequently for dinner and a movie. He would cook and I would rent a movie, usually based on his suggestion. We both liked Science Fiction, so this was a go-to series I would rent from Blockbuster. He was actually old enough to remember these when they were first broadcast.
1970-1975 / the Odd Couple featuring: Tony Randall & Jack Klugman
I caught this mostly in reruns, but I loved it because it defined the relationship I had with my brother whom I shared a bedroom with. I was always Felix, he was always Oscar. No matter how I tried to keep the bedroom clean, he would mess it up. One day I took duct-tape and drew a line in the middle of the room. The one side was mine, the other side was him. If something messy migrated to my side of the room, I just kicked it back to his side.
1986-1988 / Our House featuring: Wilford Brimley, Deidre Hall, Shannon Doherty & Chad Allen
There are very few television shows from the 80's that I'm not familiar with. This is one of them. Usually, at least I'm familiar with it. Somehow this one slipped right past.
