With the growing popularity of retro tv shows and the new channels expanding the availability of the old shows, what old TV shows do you miss that are not currently available, or have not been played recently on the various retro themed or major networks? (programming that is currently not available on any channel, not just the channels that you receive)

A few shows that come to mind for me are:
Eight is Enough
State Trooper (Starring Rod Cameron)
Anie Oakley (Starring Gail Davis)
Hello Larry
It's About Time

Don't know if it is currently being shown anywhere, but if not I would like to see someone offer WKRP.

Particularly episodes which had a lot of Bailey Quarters participation in them. :D

Im a sci fi nut so heres my list! Land of the giants,time tunnel,space 1999,the prisoner,quatum leap,sliders and dark shadows.

Maybe it's just me, but has anyone else ever noticed the genres are usually comedy, westerns, dramas, etc, when it comes to these retro stations? It's like space and sci fi shows are not even a choice. I'm not a major sci fi buff, but I do recall space and sci fi themes being a big part of the 60s when i was growing up. There's all those Gerry Anderson and Irwin Allen series I recall watching. I was born in 58. I think I recall watching some Gerry Anderson shows in the very early 60s, like when I was 4 or 5, then all those Irwin Allen series around the mid 60s. But for some reason, space and sci fi shows don't seem like it's anything these retro chs care to air much. They have aired Buck Rogers, Battlestar I think, plus the Incredible Hulk, but that's about it. I have heard that some of these sci fi classics may be airing again on Metv soon, but it won't do me much good if they did, since AMC 3 is blocked by trees. But I can get AMC 7 just fine, which doesn't help much, since there is no MeTV feed on that sat that I'm aware of. Unless of course, RTV starts airing sci fi classics, which I see as unlikely, tho not impossible.
