Icebergs post of Memories of Galaxy 10R got me to thinking.... What 2 RTN TV shows do you miss the most? They had so many of my favourite shows playing. The two I miss the most are:

1) Hawaii Five-O
2) My Three Sons

There was one RTN affiliate that had 3 classic westerns on in a row, everyday, Mon - Fri. Rawhide, Bonanza, and Gunsmoke. They eventually changed their schedule a year & 1/2 ago, maybe 2 years ago. I can't remember now which channel it was, but I loved it at the time. I guess that's 3 shows, not 2, so forgive me, but I really miss that line-up.
And to think it was totally, legally free too.
Wow...

They don't show Airwolf anymore, do they? That was a nightly favorite of mine...

Tron,

Airwolf is still on. I was watching it M-F on RTN East at noon central time just the week prior to Thanksgiving, three hours later on the west feed. I hope they haven't altered the schedule as I have my AZBox programmed to record Daniel Boone and The Rockford Files at 0600 and 1500 Central Time. If they have changed their schedule since then, I will find out Monday morning and have to reschedule my reserved recordings.

Larry,

I could say that I miss a great many of them, but my two favorites were always "The Rockford Files" and "Quincy M.E.". Since Rockford is still on the RTN feeds on 83W, I'd have to say Quincy.

I would like to see the old B&W episodes of Gunsmoke and the Rawhide series, too!

And of course James T Kirk


Cad,

Now your hitting tunes with me! I really want to see the old Star Trek shows again. I wish they would put them on RTV now.

I know many like the new series, but they don't do anything for me, personally. I like the original series so much better, even though they are reruns. I would rather watch them over and over again then any of the new spin-offs.

They can write a new dialogue, a new story. They can design a new starship and new gadgets, but they cannot create new personalities for the show! James T. Kirk will always and forever be James T. Kirk! Mr. Spock will always be Mr. Spock, Bones will always be Bones! And Scotty will always be Scotty! No one will ever replace them in any way or manner!

I found the "New Generation" Star Trek to be too dull, too mundane in the personalities of the characters. The props and the special effects are much more advanced, but that is not what made the original show what it was, it was the personality, the human factor of the original show that made it great. You can (or at least I could) identify with their personalities.

The spinoffs left me empty as I couldn't identify with the characters. They just seemed to be actors on a stage. No feeling - no personal touch, just dry recitals of memorized lines. Except maybe Geordie LaForge... That showed some really great skill and personality.

This is all my own opinion of course, and I am just an OLD Trekkie! :D

Does anyone remember the episode "The Menagerie"? The one with Captain Christopher Pike and the Talosians (of Talos IV)? The only two part episode... #11 and #12.

The actress who was to seduce Capt Pike (Susan Oliver) also played the green Gorgon belly dancer (Vina) on "The Cage".

I saw her on an episode of the Andy Griffith show (Prisoner of Love) just the other day on KLRT Fox 16 Little Rock. I knew that I recognized her and so I watched for her name on the credits and looked up her career. She was also on episodes of the Twilight Zone.

I remember that pair of episodes.

Star Trek was one of those shows I loved as a kid and and even more so as an adult. Remember all those times Kirk was shown pulling his boots on as the buxom alien gal was straightening her hair? Gene Roddenberry's story line had something for both generations, I especially rember the one when Kirk and O'Hura were forced to kiss by the Olympians, the first biracial kiss on TV, almost got shot down by the censors. The midget on that one was a regular on Wild, Wild, West.

I'd like to see RTV get the newer 'Trek' shows. I love all of the Star Trek series spinoffs, and of course the original series, as they all bring something unique to the Star Trek storyline. I have not seen the latest Star Trek movie by J.J. Abrams, but I've heard it is very good. I just think I'll have a problem adapting to the different actors playing such iconic characters. In the spinoffs, the characters were all different people from the original characters in future times.

A great deal of the changes in the technical world were inspired by the original Star Trek series... Computers, cell phones, satellites, ion propulsion, etc!

There was a documentary of all the inventions and improvements that Star Trek inspired. It is really quite amazing, just like the Jules Verne novels inspired space travel to begin with. i.e. "From Earth to the Moon" 1865!

I do Love the Star Trek series and I can watch them all over and over and over again (I feel the same way about M*A*S*H).

I think you will be surprised.
I had the same thoughts when I first went to see it, but it was amazing to me how well they pulled it off...
There were a couple of things that struck me as odd or 'didn't fit' the original, but overall I really enjoyed it.
Plus it's setup in such a way that whatever sequels they have WON'T have to match the original series (I'm not going to spoil it here.)

Now, if they have a LOT of sequels to the new movie, I'm not sure how well it will go as the actors get older...
