Do you remember the TV series NCIS? It was about a naval based intelligence and the head agent Gibbs, was constantly working on a boat he was building.
They had many of those that were so much alike like CSI and I had to think about who played on what! I enjoyed those shows but with a steady diet of them, it was too much of the same topic.
I guess if one goes over well they make so many others and soon its hard to find anything else on TV! I never cared for Law and Order because it was too cut and dry and bonking around made it seem more like a stage play because I like to see people going places! Some of the stories were good but to me it was so dragged out and probably was more realistic but feel getting away from that is what TV is all about!
- One time a sales man walked into the shop and was nearly identical in every possible way to Melville Greenspan who was on Adderly what was series during the 80s. Funny, now I know more about all this after looking it up then I ever did then!
- When we first got pay TV I had a silly notion of thinking that at least we wouldnt have to sit through the advertisements bet they were only worse then ever! Im sure many of you can remember when the biggest expense was buying a set and an antenna what with a little luck would last for several years! My father bought my mother a 25 inch color TV for Christmas in 68 and I think it was around $300 what could probably fill 8 or 9 carts with groceries, what do you think? But anyway the sets have really become more affordable.
- I think a VCR in the 70s was around $1000 or $1500 what no doubt came with bragging rights as a standard feature!
We had a rotary dial phone for a long time, My father bought a cordless phone with an antenna you had to pull out but it didnt work very well so had some loud bells in the shop and a phone on each end of the building but prior to that, my father was getting where he could really sprint!
