Old? Hm.

Anyone familiar with Sledge Hammer? I'll also throw in my hat for Xena and raise you a Sliders.

(Buffy doesn't count as 'old' yet, right?)

I see your Sledge Hammer and raise you a Dempsey & Makepeace.

Not even going into the stop-motion animation my son loves - stuff from when his father was a kid (and I not yet born!).

How could I forget Blackadder? Best series ever. Do you guys remember what Baldrick's first name was?  ;D

Criminy, I didn't even realize he had one.

Speaking of adders though - in my later teen years there was a Canadian show called "Adderly" that I liked a lot. It was about a spy who had lost a hand on a mission & been reassigned to the Miscellaneous Affairs department - two rooms in the basement, one manager & one secretary who of course was a better spy than the manager. Mayhem ensued every week.

Well, it's a bit of a funny story.

You see, for most of his life, he thought his name was 'Sodoff Baldrick'. Because that's what all the other kids were saying whenever he approached.

Hmmm, I think I'll up The Munsters and Dark Shadows... I don't don't know if we can count Buffy as old yet, but I did watch a Supernatural episode that had Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters as a married pair of witches that were having a spat....

A fantastic show. Didn't discover it until I got a bit older though, when a friend had a VHS of one of the seasons.

I loved Buffy and Angel, though I hope those do not count as old shows yet.  Xena was definitely awesome, and the Beauty and the Beast series.  I always have enjoyed Stargate, though I hope that doesn't count as old yet.. <.<

As cheesy as some might find these shows, I love comics, so I was recently watching some episodes of the old Wonder Woman show with Linda Carter. Dark Shadows, and others mentioned I love as well.  A-team, MacGuyver, and well, I just thought of two kid shows that I vaguely recall .. "The Tomorrow People" and "You can't do that on television" on Nickelodeon I think it was.  Oh, and I love Doctor Who.

I really enjoyed Stargate SG-1, although there were too many "filler" episodes that did nothing for the overall story arc, and were not very interesting as a stand-alone episode. Have watched all ten seasons though, and the movies, so it can't be that bad. :-)

Yeah, I recall a lot of filler episodes that did nothing to push the season forward, though I enjoyed the show overall. I also watched Atlantis when it came out, but I had a hard time getting into the very last one they did.

Another old show that I enjoyed was the "Twilight Zone" as well as the "Outer Limits".

Have the first two seasons on dvd... I forgot to add V.... I remember watching that way back when, still love to watch it as well. Then there was Hunter and 21 Jump Street (not that travesty of a remake either). I used to watch old Days of Our Lives as well. I got into that when Marlena got possessed by the devil and John just happened to find out that he was a priest...

I loved The Golden Girls.... I will always be a Betty White fan...

For those of you who are missing Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, it is currently being should on The HUB; the children channel in the US. They also show the good Batman and Superman cartoons from the 90's that I enjoy.

I'm surprised that no one put Hercules: The Legendary Journeys on their list.
Another one I consider old but great for me is Sabrina The Teenage Witch.

Sabrina is considered old now? 

*slinks off to his rocking chair on the porch*

I'm still getting used to the idea of the Powerpuff Girls being on Boomerang...

I always liked Xena over Hercules, but Hercules was not a bad show, either, when I think about it.
