Ain't we lucky we got 'em?

It didn't take long, but I got Casey liking Good Times. That was a favorite in our house when I was growing up, and my brother would walk around quoting J. J. -- even answer the phone with, "Chello?" It's funny now, but I remember being pretty embarassed about it back then. Isn't it funny how you view a show or movie so differently as an adult? There are those shows I thought were, like, the coolest and funniest shows ever, but now I see Full House or Charles in Charge and I'm thinking, "Ooooo...kay..." though I will say that I think Growing Pains and Welcome Back, Kotter and some others can still hold their own fairly well. Casey and I have wondered what our kids will think of the shows we watched. Will they think we were completely crazy to watch Frasier or Seinfeld? Maybe not...I watched M*A*S*H, The Bob Newhart Show, Newhart, etc. with my parents and I still think those are incredibly funny shows. Which brings up the question, is Newhart on at all these days? And if so, where can I watch it? That finale was one of the best of any sitcom I've ever seen.

Tune in next time and happy viewing...I mean, blogging!

John and I always talk about David and the Gnomes. What a great show. It came on Nick every afternoon. Boy do I miss that fox?

Tracey, bless you for not saying, "Which begs the question," as most people would have done instead of the way you properly said it. An editor's nightmare! You've made my day! :)

Ooh, thanks! I didn't even put that much thought into it, really, but I feel very honored that you have found worthiness in my phraseology! I just ruined it there didn't I? =)

I really need to start watching that, don't I?!!!

tracey said...

What, Good Times?

Sarah said...

Yeah, wasn't that the show you told me in an email awhile back that I needed to watch? The one that comes on at 9pm I believe. I just haven't watched tv at all this summer...weird.

No, silly, that was Monk! It's a newer show, while Good Times debuted in 1974. Both good shows. Watch Monk! =)
