Wit all da reality, "real" drama and claim to fame shows on tv, it's just a sign of da times on how much "entertainment" has evolved.
Sitting at home today (amazingly today is a day off), my mother in law and I was watching "Happy Days" cause nothing else was on. It was a funny sight to see two totally different generations sit down, watch a "good ole-fashioned" sitcom and laugh. Surah there are some great ones today but wen you watch da oldies but goodies, da dialect, da moments, da mannerisms are soooooo much not today.
I still remembah shows like Full House, Family Matters, Roc, Family Ties and the Cosby Show. Those were shows dat showcased a mixture of humor and, at da time, serious issues to share wit da ohana as they were shows dat everybody could watch.
While those shows wouldn't last an episode in today's world, I still catch myself watching an "old school" sitcom now and then and really trip out dat I still enjoy watching them.... although truth be told, I would change da channel should I see a "current" show on.
Wat old school show did you always used to watch? You still remembah da characters? Da episodes? I'll admit I still do even though it's been wat, nearly 20 years since I seen 'em. Do you catch anyone doing any "trademark" moves or sayings from any of da old shows like Steve Urkel's "did I do thaaat?" or his dance? Who can forget da Fonz?
