    Ya oughta Google some McHale!

    And Bonanza...that map they burned in the beginning, I lived there, the field they rode up...it is houses....the Cartwright ranch...been there.

    One day in the show the boys rode to Virginia City, and got in trouble, one of them rode back to the ranch who got Pa and then back to VC to straighten things out and back to the Ponderosa....that is 30 miles each way up and down over two mountain passes over 7000 feet total elev change each time...and such bad dirt trails they have never been improved to a road for vehicle traffic in the past 150 years.

    Did ya get Smothers Brothers, Adam12, Maverick, Wagon train, F troop, wanted dead or alive,

    I swear this old man will look at the modern offerings and watch old reruns much of the time...of course sitting outside listening to birds chirping is often enough for me.

    HaHa. Where my father-in-law lived in Norfolk, someone moved onto a farming estate and ringed the place with a white rail fence. It was immediately branded 'The Ponderosa', and it wasn't a compliment!

    Smothers Brothers:
    I don't recall, but it was, a show on the BBC.

    Adam12
    Nope, don't think so. We had 'Car 54 where are you?'

    Maverick, yes. Wagon train, Oh yes! F troop, I think so ... wanted dead or alive, not sure.

    I very much doubt it, but did you get Brit TV there?

    I swear that, since lockdown, the birds are getting more and more bolshy. I keep telling people, "Remember Hitchcock? Be ready ..." but they won't listen.

    Cable was first sold to us as commercial free....and then we were paying for commercials...

    All of them hook you on commercial free..and then it is pay us AND you get commercials, even PBS!

    (Antenna, Charge, Comet and MeTV) Those are all broadcast channels airing on network sub-stations.

    Who needs cable?
    We get broadcast channels from 4 states! :D

    Our problem is all the damn trees and the nearest transmission tower being more than 30 miles away! Still, between that antenna array and the cheap PC we have attached to our set, we're able to watch programming from around the world. All for free!

    Of course we never paid for TV even when there was only 3 channels and no remote! ;)

    I'm not in my 60s (almost 55, though) but here are a few shows that I barely remember or I used to watch almost faithfully from the 60s:

    Mister Rogers' Neighborhood
    Sesame Street
    One Step Beyond
    /Next Step Beyond

    There are/were others, too, but I don't have a television to check on the series plus I live in an apartment complex (neighbors all around me that I've posted about on the Daily Rant thread.) :oops:
