The Friday Five

This week's Friday Five is:

Five shows I watched as a kid:

Oh yeah, I watched it. The Dukes of Hazzard. And I was a Bo Duke fan. Who did you prefer? Bo or Luke?

Flipper. :)

I loved the show and I LOVED the book. My son has read my copy of The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams many times, too.

Loved Laura, loathed Nellie, rooted for the Ingalls through every disaster and tear-jerker scene with Michael Landon.

M*A*S*H All the seasons, all the episodes. I preferred Winchester to Frank Burns and much preferred Colonel Potter to Colonel Blake. Really liked Margaret at the end of the series, though I didn't care for her in the early-Frank Burns years. Klinger makes my son laugh. Oh, and BJ was better than McIntyre. 

What shows did you watch as a kid? Any of these?


  1. I watched The Walton's, The Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family, and The Monkees to name just a few.

  2. I watched Little House and Dukes of Hazzard too!

    I also watched, Charlie's Angels, The Love Boat, Family Ties, Growing Pains, and Moonlighting! I could go on and on. I loved TV...guess I still do!

  3. My sister and I loved the Dukes of Hazzard but we were split in who we liked: she liked Bo and I liked Luke. Loved M*A*S*H and feel the same way about the characters you do although I will watch Frank Burns episodes after Col Potter & BJ arrived. I also watched Star Trek: TOS as a kid and Star Trek: Next Gen in college. And of course Little House.

  4. I watched waaaaay too much TV as a kid. Everything listed above and in the comments. Different Strokes. Who's the Boss. Family Ties. Blanking on the one with the girls in the boarding school (Blair, Joe, Tootie).

    The Cosby Show...

    Fat shrimp, shrimp gumbo, shrimp a la TV.

  5. Those were shows I watched as an adult LOL

  6. Keli, I watched The Monkees in reruns and thought it hilarious!

    Jessica, The Love Boat! I forgot about that one. Now I'll probably have that song in my head all day...and won't even mind. :D

  7. Jen, we've started watching M*A*S*H reruns in the evenings, and I agree, I can take Frank better with Potter and BJ than with Blake and McIntyre.

    Wendy, Facts of Life! Oh yeah, I watched that show! Jo was my favorite. And Natalie, who had the most adorable smile.

    CJ... :D :D :D

  8. I was a Luke fan back in the day, but when my kids got into Dukes of Hazard recently, I found myself thinking I think I like Bo better now. :)

    Also watched Charlie's Angels, Brady Bunch, and The A Team.

    Good times! Good times!

  9. Oh yes! I watched Full House, Family Matters (the show where the youngest daughter just up and disappears), Fresh Prince of Bel-Air....and my all time favorite, Saved by the Bell! I was obsessed with that show. So silly.

  10. I watched so much TV as a kid. I loved Little House, Dukes of Hazzard, and Mash! Loved Mash. I also remember liking Three's Company (which many parents didn't let their kids watch, I realize). Oh, and like Jessica, I wathced Love Boat and Charlie's Angels. Oh, and Dallas. Oh my, apparently I watched way too much TV.

  11. I watched all of these too. My faves were Grizzly Adams and Little House. :) Enjoy your blog break!
