    Or Perry Mason. It's on twice a day on MeTV. I love Perry Mason. If Dabbs Greer didn't do it, then Denver Pyle did.

    Then there's Gunsmoke that you can catch at least five hours' worth every day ... B&W episodes (both 1/2 hour and 1 hour) on MeTV and INSP. And an hour of Riflemen (Lucas McCain and his Model '92 in the late 1880's!). Another career for Dabbs and Denver!

    I just found Tales of Wells Fargo (one of my favorites) on GRIT in the late afternoon. Originally brought to you by Plymouth: "Lowest priced of the 'Low Price Three'."

    Livin' in the past.

    Just like our friend the antelope, we need the protection only Mutual of Omaha can provide...

    Awesome Kung Fu movies on Saturday afternoons

    Sneaking upstairs and adjusting the rabbit ears to catch my first episode of Miami Vice. The snow miraculously cleared at the end just in time to watch Crockett blast a dude to Phil Collin's "I Don't Care Anymore" in glorious analog TV.

    When I was five years old (circa 1955-56), missing Mighty Mouse on Saturday mornings in Chicago was genuinely an occasion for mourning and tears.
    "Therefore, since the world has still... Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure, Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would, And train for ill and not for good." -- A.E. Housman

    The earliest thing I recall watching on TV: Nixon's resignation! I was 3 years old; my dad told me to sit down and watch it, because it was important...I had no idea who or what I was seeing.

    I remember those! I grew up in San Diego, and Los Angeles was a strange land far, far away. My only image of Los Angeles was Cal, so I thought everyone up there was weird like that.

    (Now I've got that stupid jingle stuck in my head.)

    Did no one mention "Tales of Texas Rangers," or did I miss it??

    Mid-'50s. Alternated between contemporary and Old West settings. The latter, of course, had the Rangers armed with twin Colt Single Actions, and the "modern" with S&W revolvers. (I seem to remember N-frame fixed sights, .38/44 heavy duties or .44 Specials.)
