I have to admit: I am a TV junkie. It started when I was younger with watching old shows on the couch with Dad, and now it continues with Hubby and I catching our new favorite shows while cuddled up. Television(and movies) provides that temporary illusion of taking you to another place; it’s like a vacation within a 30 minute to one hour period. There are some shows that I just plain old miss like crazy. Here are my top 10 shows that I wish would come back to the small screen:
1. Newhart (not to be mistaken by The Bob Newhart Show). Two brothers named Darryl? Classic.
2. Murphy Brown. I just loved loved loved this show. Miles was my favorite character because he wore glasses. I had a “thing” for classes. And speaking of awesome shows with the best female leads….
3. The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Thanks to Nick at Nite, I got hooked on this classic too. Rhoda was the best, and was ME. I still love to bring my Rhoda out on special occasions. Plus, this is when I fell in love with Cloris Leachman. Dancing with the stars later solidified that love.
5. The Joy of Painting. If there was some supernatural way that we could bring Bob Ross back to make some more “happy trees” magic on TV, I would be all for it. I feel bad that my kids won’t get to be lulled into a hypnotic trans by Mr. Ross’s slow, calming tone. Happy Trees….Happy Trees…..
A big thanks to Mama Kat for putting up this prompt. I had so much fun with this one and I wish I could list 10 more!
