    LOL!

    No, really, I actually DID laugh out loud!

    And I remember Sky King, too. But I have no idea about any plots, because I just thought the plane was cool. As any six or seven or eight year old boy would, I suppose.

    Ditto. Back then, I was really in love with airplanes and Sky's niece Penny. :)

    Was that the show about the photographer? If so, you are getting dangerously close to asking for one of my favorites,

    My Little Margie :p

    Second Noah.

    tv.com shows a 12 ep 1st season and 9 eps in season 2 (before it got cancelled, I believe). I remember I really enjoyed this show back in '96-'97. Not sure how it would hold up 14 years later, but it sure would be nice to find out.

    How about Cleo? :D
    Bachelor Father :eek:
    And I will give a kiss on the lips to anyone who remembers watching a show called My Friend Tony, which happened significantly later but I have never run across another soul who watched it.

    Now and Again was one of my favorite shows. For me it goes in the "brilliant but canceled" category. Which was itself a really good show on Trio, a network that itself is now dead. It was the only place I had ever seen Bakersfield P.D., the funniest cop show ever made and also unavailable on Netflix.

    Neither Amazon nor the BBC America Shop lists any Region 1 DVD release of Blake's 7. (Amazon does list the Region 2 release, but very few DVD players in the USA can play them (and the ones that can may be illegal); the BBC America Shop does not list it, but does list Terry Nation's Survivors (the BBC original, not the remake) in Region 1, so it's almost certainly not a question of "they only include the popular ones.")

    But that has never come out on DVD so it's not NetFlix's fault.
    I would buy that DVD set on release day! (And the only other TV DVDs I have are Arrested Development.)

    You realize that TV reruns have huuuge chunks taken out for more commercials, right? The older the show, the more cut out (since they had much more show per half hour).

    I've been looking for a show called Dark Justice that aired for 3 seasons from 1991-1993. It was about a Judge who went after criminals when they got out of a court sentence through loopholes. He was absolutely yummy!! LOL

    There are a bunch of old shows being aired on OTA WGN-2 and other -2 and -3 OTA channels. Old movies too, and music, Canadian series, Driveit(a car show like Motorweek), lots of kids shows, and all kinds of other good stuff.
    We cheap azz bast23ds that only get OTA are living n' in the golden age of TV, and we don't pay a penny. (With our Lifetime Tivos!)

    Just found it for sale at ioffer.com. Only $9.99 plus $5.00 shipping. Not an official release, of course, just a home-brew set. I'm considering since I know that show will never see a DVD release.

    Spy Games - A great show a bit like "The Avengers" with Emma Peel. Didn't even last one season, because they changed the day and time every week.
