Which reruns do you still watch?

I can watch I Love Lucy, Mary Tyler Moore and Dick Van Dyke over and over. (Not that I do, but I have seen them all many times.) And sometimes the classic 39 Honeymooners.

But the others, once I've seen an episode, that's it. No Big Bang Theory, no Seinfeld, no MASH or Hot in Cleveland.

Now that Antenna TV and MeTv have brought back some classics, I have watched every Hazel, every Burns and Allen and every Danny Thomas and Jack Benny (or at least what they showed of them.)

But once is enough.

How about you?

I waited decades to see Maude and AIF again and when I saw both the series all the way through on Antenna TV I have no desire to see either again. I thought I'd want to see them over and over. It's the same with Murphy Brown when it had its short lived life on Nik. I remember loving it first run but it just didn't do it for me second time around. Now, Mad About You I'm able to watch a few times over. I have some on tape from back in the day and every now and then I pull a few out and watch. One show, not a comedy, that I can watch many times over is Judging Amy. First I'm a huge Tyne Daly fan but it's not just her. All the acting and the writing and most especially the subject matter was incredible.

My overnight show (The show I keep playing endlessly as I sleep since I can't sleep in silence) is Everybody Loves Raymond. I have no idea why that one helps me sleep by I have a VCR and tapes in my bedroom and that's what I turn on every night as soon as I feel sleepy enough to sleep. Freakin' odd I know.

by Anonymousreply 1309/18/2013

Only the classics. MTM, I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith, Bob Newhart and some others from the 60's. I can sometimes catch an old Seinfeld and watch it a bit. And I can still watch Will and Grace and double over laughing. But most sitcoms don't age well. I could never suffer through MASH or Home Improvement or Rosanne now. I hated Mad About You during its initial run so, no. Most of the old Fraziers are insufferable, too. All that mugging.

FX has been rerunning Ellen in the morning, so I wanted to check it out again. I forgot what a good comedic actress she was. In retrospect, the show's biggest problem was it's uninteresting supporting cast. And the writing is pretty mediocre. I think they're coming up to the coming out episode next week.

I TiVo two Perry Mason episodes a day from MeTv. I don't always watch them since I have seen them all more than once. I now pay attention to the regular extras they have. My favorite is "The Little Old Lady in the Hat" (see Google) who is always in the courtroom. No none seems to know her name but her big scene was when she was on the jury and they passed a gun among the jurors and she got all fluttery and passed it along quickly. She doesn't seem to have ever had any dialogue.

These are the shows I know I will never, ever stop watching because I love them more than words can say (in no particular order):

I LOVE LUCY (the beginning right up until they get to the Hollywood episodes, which is where I start to lose interest; granted, I've seen almost every episode 5 zillion times, it's just that the minute they get the call to go west, it's like the series just became a travelogue from that point forward -- they were always on the road going somewhere)

BEWITCHED (loved all eight seasons)

MARY TYLER MOORE (loved all seven seasons)

TWILIGHT ZONE (beginning to end, just amazing)

THE OUTER LIMITS (original B&W series only, not the Showtime remake)

THE RIFLEMAN (loved just about every episode)

THE HONEYMOONERS (loved 38 of the classic 39)

ADAM-12 (loved just about every episode)

LOST IN SPACE (this despite the fact the show was horribly sexist, plus Dr. Smith was annoying beyond words)

LAVERNE & SHIRLEY (right up until Cindy Williams left the show, after which it became completely unwatchable)

THREE'S COMPANY (only the Suzanne Somers years)

GILLIGAN'S ISLAND (brainless but a joy nonetheless)

ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS (loved just about every episode)

THE GOLDEN GIRLS (first 5 seasons brilliant, last 2 merely good)

SEINFELD (first 6 years only, last 3 were largely disposable save for 1 or 2 classic episodes like "The Soup Nazi")

FAME (loved all 6 seasons, though season 5 was the weakest)

Funny you ask, R80, because they just showed it last night (and I changed the channel). It was the episode in which Ralph tapes an apology to Alice about the fight he'd had with her mother. I hated it because Alice did not deserve an apology; her mother was wrong to have done what she did to Ralph (purposely revealing the ending of a play for which he'd just bought tickets) and instead of standing up to her, Alice got mad at Ralph instead. It was the one and only time in which I felt Alice was completely wrong and Ralph was completely right, but yet he was the one made to apologize.

Hated that episode.

My husband finally got his China Beach. He's been waiting for the DVDs to come out for years. I don't watch it, but he has an obsession with that show and with the old David Carradine show Kung Fu.

I like to watch old tv marathons for a few hours around the holidays. Twilight Zone, Honeymooners. My sister had a fat friend who was obsessed with the Honeymooners and did Ralph Kramden impressions line by line.

Streets of San Francisco pretty amazing for a network pre-cable show. Character driven and the city itself is photographed in such a way that it is a character.

The Fugitive with David Janssen is really good too. His rarely seen sister is an excellent actress. I would think she may still be alive.

The very early Bewitched seem more adult in nature than the show became. What a great cast--Agnes Moorehead and Marion Lorne and Alice Pearce. Was George Tobias gay? In dozens of old films.

R115 R117 I'm a faithful MeTV watcher, but my stupid cable provide (Charter) refuses to add the local station that carries it. They even just did a major digital changeover and added a lot of new stuff, but still no MeTV. I have to watch it over the air with my rabbit ears.

If you like old movies, there are two newish channels that show a lot of them: GetTV and Movies!

Count your blessings, R126, at least you can get MeTV locally. My crappy TV market only has Antenna TV and Bounce TV, neither of which compare. The only way I can watch MeTV is on :(

I bought one of those digital boxes for my bedroom TV that doesn't have cable. Here in Houston with the digital box we get WeTv, Cube, and a movie channel called This. I'm currently watching Raging Bull for the first time on there. The box also comes with a ton of foreign language channels. The African soap operas are a riot, so are the Vietnamese variety shows. If it weren't for Game of Thrones I'd cancel my cable all together since I rarely watch it now.

"That 70s Show" is always watchable. Even the weaker seasons. The pilot was perfect. Comfort food that now works on 2 levels: the Seventies, and the Nineties.

"Freaks & Geeks" always reveals something, even after repeat viewings.

"Happy Days" which ran on The Hub for awhile. The Richie seasons, more comfort food.

"The Gilmore Girls"- the Chilton years, maybe the first college year, with Digger. Before they lobotomized Dean and hooked up Lorelai and Dean.

"Batman", the 66 series. Also ran on The Hub, now said to be getting a DVD, Blu Ray release. Because. Julie Newmar and Eartha Kitt and Yvonne Craig.

"Dobie Gillis" Had a crush on Dobie when this ran on the Superstation in the 70s. Still funnier, smarter than most things on TV. Plus, inspired "Scooby Doo" (Dobie/Fred, Maynard/Shaggy, Thalia/Daphne, Zelda/Velma)

"Scooby Doo Where Are You?", the original series, and "The Flintstones", once ubiquitous, now unseen

MeTV airs "Petticoat Junction" early every weekday morning in Boston. My God, what an awful show. Who was their target audience back in the 1960s? Were the daughters the attraction? The only good thing about the series was Mike Minor, who was sexy as hell.

Night Stalker, Night Gallery, Twilight Zone, Bewitched, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Avengers, Family Affair

Why "The Donna Reed Show" was once so popular escapes me.

Another vote for Night Gallery. Law & Order, Twillight Zone, Big Bang.

What's that girl? Timmy fell down the well?

Cold Case. I've seen each episode at least twice, but if I happen to land on the ION channel when it's on, I'll probably watch it to the end, depending on the storyline and the music.

And the gay episodes: the one with the gay cops? The one with the gay baseball player? I've probably seen those ones five times. "To every thing, turn, turn, turn, there is a season, turn, turn, turn..."

For my daily dose of both laughter and irritation, I choose Everybody Loves Raymond and King Of Queens.

XFiles....because the truth IS out there.....somewhere

Mainly Star Trek (original series), Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, Thriller ... comedy doesn't age very well IMO.

I watch the show that shall not be named, that gave us the bitchiness of Frida Claxton, the haughtiness of Barbara Thorndyke, the efficiency of Nurse Defarge, the mystery of Cindy Lou Peeples, the impotence of Ted Zbornak, the stature of Dr. Jonathan Newman, the bluntness of Mamie Watkins, the fierceness of Rex Huntington, the voo-doo of Marguerite Brown, the boldness of Trudy McMann, the sluttiness of Posey MacGlinn, the spiciness of Enrique Mas, and the raw talent of Phyllis Hammerow.

I will watch reruns of the early seasons of Roseanne.
