Week 6: Radio and Television. What was your favorite radio or television show from your childhood? What was the program about and who was in it?
Is there ANYONE out there who does not know what this show was about and who was in it?!! Well, just in case I'm senile one day and can't remember, here's a short synopsis:
"The staff of an army hospital in the Korean war find that laughter is the best way to deal with their situation." (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068098/)
The TV series ran from 1972-1983 and was based on the 1970 film. The TV series starred Alan Alda, Wayne Rogers, Loretta Swit, Jamie Farr, Harry Morgan, Larry Linville, and Gary Burghoff. It was a comedy, and it was a drama. It was hilarious and it could bring you to tears. It is my opinion that it was the best show EVER.
Of course, I had several other favorites that I can't resist sharing:
- The Dukes of Hazzard
- Happy Days
- The Facts of Life
- Three's Company
- WKRP in Cincinnati
- Little House on the Prairie
- Charlie's Angels
- The Waltons
- One Day at a Time
- The Love Boat
- Barney Miller
- Laverne & Shirley
- Eight is Enough
- Donny and Marie
In looking at this list, I see that most of my favorites were sitcoms... the 70's were obviously the decade for great sitcoms.
