add Daniel Boone, Maverick, Wyatt Earp, Gunsmoke, The Virginian, George and Gracie, The Jack Benny Show, and Make Room For Daddy to that list. i watch them daily. MeTV, COZI, and ENCORE Westerns are my favorite networks. as for new show, i've enjoyed watching The 100 lately and i'm anxiously awaiting the return of Defiance. the new show NCIS NO will be on my list, i'm sure, when it premiers this fall.
As I said earlier, I'm not really a fan of Westerns, but that's one I didn't mind was Wyatt Earp with Hugh O'Brien. Another was Hec Ramsay with Richard Boone... then there was F-Troop, whether or not you'd classify it as a Western or a comedy.
I recently got into The 100 and The Tomorrow People, which sadly got axed after just a few episodes.... and yeah, I too am awaiting the return of Defiance, with Aussie Grant Bowler in the lead role. Another show I got into and quite liked is Revolution, but it too got axed just prior to the end of season 2, despite it having a good following.
I thought Mark meant current shows
Yes, current shows are probably the focus because... they are current, but some of the older shows are getting reruns and/or remakes, not to mention their availability on DVD or Bluray, so posters could provide information to those who missed them first time around and would like something different to watch. That's the whole idea of the thread, throw around a few show names to present people with alternative viewing ideas.
Quoting starkers, reply 13Ah, Callan, one of my favourite TV shows of all time. Some may think it's dated but I can easity watch it again...
I have everything that survives...on DVD. Much of the B/W series are long gone..... same reason as the early Dr Who.... blame the BEEB...
Sadly, my version of Callan was on VHS and had seen better days... tape deterioration over time, a couple of chews, etc, and not really salvagable for digital transfer, so it was deposited with love and a tear or two into my bin. I've not found a DVD/Bluray copy anywhere since, not that I've looked that hard, but I may inquire with relatives in the UK to improve my chances of finding it. I'm told there has been a resurgence of bygone TV shows over there, and that some rarities have been discovered. In fact, some of the missing Dr Who episodes were discovered not that long ago and were being lovingly restored by some enthusiasts at the BBC, so may just be lucky yet.
A couple of years ago I really, really, really wanted a DVD copy of The Secret War of Harry Frigg with Paul Newman, and no matter which store I went to it was "Nah, can't get that, it's out of production.", yet my aunt [mother's sister] in the UK located a copy over there and sent it to me [gotta love region-free DVD players], so there's always hope, says me.
