Are you ever tempted to watch an older show again?

Jasdip

All of a sudden one night this week, I thought of The Thorn Birds. It was a mini-series in the early 80's with Richard Chamberlain. Remember when tv networks aired Made for TV Movies, and Mini-Series regularly? I enjoyed that.

Anyway, I loved, loved Thorn Birds at the time. I wonder, if I can ever find it, if it would still be as good today as it was then.

PS, I'm unable to comment on posts for some reason. Anyone else with that issue?

I occasionally pull out my old Hercules: the legendary journeys DVDs. I wish I could buy them on amazon prime, but they only have the first season. What's the point of only having one season available???? Anyway, I also caught some old Garfield and Friends episodes on Starz the other day. I have those on dvd as well. As an eighties baby, those two count as old to me....

Yes, I most certainly do watch older shows more than once. BTW, I don't think I watched The Thorn Birds when it was originally on. With your recommendation, I will keep an eye out for it to be on TV.

You can buy The Thorn Birds on DVD, and it is not expensive.

Palm Springs has channels that show old TV shows, and one channel has marathon showings of 1960s shows each week-end. One week-end it was 77 Sunset Strip.

Absolutely. I watch the entire series of The West Wing every year or so. I recently bought DVDs of Reasonable Doubts and Northern Exposure to watch. I discovered two new-to-me Australian series on YouTube and enjoyed binge-watching them. I remember how excited I was when TimeLife finally offered DVDs of China Beach for sale. Some series don't hold up to the passage of time very well, but others are just as fun to watch today as they were originally.

A mini series I am sure I would love seeing again. I have tried regular sitcoms on cable from years ago and don't find them plausible enough. I have been discovering old series I never knew of when they first ran: JAG, The Closer, Crossing Jordan, Major Crimes and am enjoying them.

My DH could spend hours watching old series...JAG is a favorite of his. He also watches M.A.S.H. (I like that one too, but only so often and like the movie a lot), Tool Time, Hogan’s Heroes, and probably some others I can’t recall.

I‘m not so much into them unless I am totally bored and happen to see that one is on and will tune in. Saw Spy Game, with Robert Redford and Brad Pitt recently and it isn’t really that old. Well, 2001, I guess maybe it is!

Our satellite provider puts certain channels on temporarily and then jerks them off again - probably to entice us to a more expensive package. It's like they are saying "see what you're missing?? - Don't you want to pay for this?" LOL! NOT! Anyway, they recently had a channel called METV on with a bunch of old TV shows. I mean OLD. Like Alfred Hitchcock, Perry Mason and Twilight Zone. Anyway I'm almost always pretty disappointed when I watch these old forgotten shows, a lot of them were pretty corny and the acting was awful. But it's interesting to see the big names on some of the episodes before they became famous with their own shows.

Something we watched that I remember that I loved but don't like anymore is MASH and Miami Vice. The MASH series was so sexist it wasn't funny anymore. I'm not sure about Miami Vice, it just seemed boring to me, neither me nor my husband liked either of those.

Our favorite is Stargate SG1 and all the old Star Trek movies and TV shows.

We watch a lot of old shows! Especially MASH (yes, very sexist but it got less so as it went on), Frasier, Seinfeld (do those qualify as older ???)

We watched Sleeping with the Enemy recently. We’d both seen it more than once and didn’t mind knowing what would happen, but now it seemed so dated: the clothing, hair, the music! It just didn’t do it for us anymore.

One of my favorite old shows is Dick Van Dyke, and Hazel. I want a Hazel! And Laura Petrie‘s body lol

We get METV through our antenna. We do not even have cable in Cathedral City (since we are there so seldom), and so we only watch whatever comes through the air, which is plenty. We also have two Blu-Ray players which can stream movies via Amazon Prime, if we want, but I also have a huge collection of DVDs - most of which are of TCM movies that I recorded on DVR and then put on DVD discs with a DVD recorder. I have hundreds of movies like that, plus a few other shows. We also have a large collection of DVDs that we bought plus quite a few Blu-Ray discs and a handful of 4K discs, but we only have a 4K player in L.A. I can't tell the difference between 4K discs and Blu-Ray, and so we mostly just get Blu-Ray.

I can't tell the difference between 4K discs and Blu-Ray, and so we mostly just get Blu-Ray.

There's a noticeable difference between 4K and 1080p viewing. It's "Enhanced".

If your TV is 4K capable, and the Enhanced 4K setting is enabled in settings, you'll notice a big difference when viewing 4K broadcasts.

If your TV isn't 4K, the 4K player will simply pass 1080p to the TV. If your TV is 4K and the 4K player passes through an old technology receiver(not HDCP 2.2 capable) to the TV, the signal will pass through as 1080p. No enhancement.

Millions of TV buyers are greatly disappointed after buying a 4K TV only to discover their other equipment must be upgraded in order to enjoy 4K viewing.

I have both a 4K TV and a 4K player. The receiver we have is newer than the TV, and we bought one that would be compatible with our 4K TV. Perhaps I need new glasses, but I already see more detail than I really want to see as it is. Our TV is only 65", and so that may be part of the problem, but we do not have room for a bigger TV, except in our second home.

Lars, sometimes clearer isn't better. I personally do not like that super clear, can see the pores in someone's face, type picture. So, we have our TV set on a different setting that doesn't look like that! We call that the Soap Opera effect, I don't like that!

Lars, most 4K receivers and TV's require 4K features to be enabled during initial set-up. If your receiver is 4K compatible, the HDMI ports will be labeled HDCP 2.2.

To confirm 4K enhancement, press Display or Input button on remote.

TV size doesn't matter to 4K. Size does matter if the TV is too large for the viewing area. If you're seeing pores, you're sitting too close and/or the TV is too large for your viewing area. If your vision is as good as mine, you'll want to be 10-12' away.

I agree MASH didn't age all that well. I used to love that show decades ago. I just watched a few episodes over a snowy weekend here in the Northeast, and it just wasn't as good as I remembered it. Some of the blatant sexism was almost cringe-worthy, for me. It's interesting to see how different our world is today vs. back then. I watched a few episodes and got my fill.

I LOVED Northern Exposure. I haven't thought of that show in ages.

I watch old shows all the time. My cable provider offers multiple channels that feature old TV series and movies and I have a couple of streaming services where I can find old movies as well.

If I liked the movie well enough the first time, I am almost certain to enjoy it again and I do have some faves that I will watch whenever I find them.

And to be honest, I find many of the older TV shows and series to be far superior than those being offered now. Ditto movies. I've seen several of the recent Academy Awards nominees and I really didn't care for any of them.

I watched the entire DickVanDyke shows and really enjoyed them. He was a genuine professional clown in a classic sense.

Hubs and I began watching Father Knows Best as a short night cap after the evening viewing. Talk about outdated notions! Every episode opens with the mother doing something intensely domestic. Father is not an enlightened fellow and junior is a real sexist jerk. The oldest daughter is the only bright light as she does pride herself on her academic success, yet she also longs for a man to take her away. The youngest child, another daughter, has gender identity issues and is a "tomboy". Then, there are guest minority roles played by painfully stereotypical actors in painfully stereotypical situations.

The sexist and racist white guys in the show are seemingly unaware of their own privilege and attitudes. Especially obnoxious are the college frat guys, the jocks and the empty headed females who pursue them. Talk about a group of jack asses! Still, it portrays the era, and the family have, basically, intact social values, just flavored by the times they lived in. it is a real period piece.

Neither I, nor Hubs, had a family like that. We were both solid working class and our dads only put on a suit for funerals. "Father" here wears his suit well into the evening while Mother sits on the couch with her mending basket. He reads the newspaper, but she just mends, or does some needlework. One time she got a job but quit because her family wanted her at home and another time she tried to go back to school but was put firmly in her place, back on the sofa or in the kitchen baking cookies, by her family who could not function without her.

One great episode is when Father bought Mother a new apron for her birthday. And, it was not a real working apron, either. It was not made of sturdy stuff with adjustable ties and great big pockets. It was a frilly little half number of chiffon and ruffles and you have to giggle to think just where Father would like for Mother to wear that little frilly apron. It was, obviously, no good for baking cookies or wrestling with holiday turkeys. Only the older more enlightened daughter protested it. Father had no clue why Mother would not just love it. And,Mother did love it. By the way, back in those days, married couples on TV had separate beds in the same room. Yeah, it was a different time.

Another nightcap is Twilight Zone. The oldest ones were the best as they brought to the fore some of the deepest universal elements of human nature. As the show went on they got quite thin and uninteresting and some were just plain silly.

We tried to watch The Honeymooners but Ralphs behavior was just too harsh and painful to laugh at . I am not an easily wilted lilly, but it was just too much and not really even all that funny.

I am old enough for my vintage TV to be in the 50's and early 60's. After that I hardly watched TV at all. I was not big on watching TV. And, back in those days the one and only TV was in the living room. Even now all I use the TV for is for streaming.

garden gal, I like to watch some older movies sometimes. Some of them had real character development and much less sensational footage so that they had to be filled with much more dialogue and story line. Also there were less repeated formula stories being told. You see some of those talented actors of yesteryear. It was all so different.

Sometimes it also depicts the times. In many of those old movies of around the midcentury era, everyone smoked and drank lots of alcohol! Always with the mixed drink in hand and they smoked everywhere! What different sensibilities back then!

Those Hollywood depictions of lifestyle set what many adults of that generation aspired towards. Having that hifi set in the living room and a bar for mixed drinks, visiting Las Vegas, and having a fur coat or a swimming pool was what was considered to the high life for many of that generation. Living life like a movie star was the thing, even if you lived in the newly minted bungalows of the burbs or out on the farm.

Still there were some really good old movies.

I am old enough to remember when watching old movies meant watching really old movies from the 30's on late night TV, right before the station went off the air for the day and played the national anthem. Then, there was nothing there but that test pattern and a loud dead on buzzing sound. until sometime in the wee hours of the. next morning when it would come back on again with the agricultural reports of the daily trading prices of pork bellies or sorghum. Maybe in New York it was different. Out in the heartland of America pork bellies were big news and you needed to know first thing in the morning.

LOL!! dallasannie, your definition of "older" movies may be very different from mine :-) 'Older' movies to me are just those that were released maybe 10-20 years ago and a bit before that. Although many were excellent productions, I am not much interested in anything before the 60's - they are just too dated for my tastes.

And I'm sure my preferred choices would not be everyone's cup of tea! Caddy Shack, any of the "brat pack" movies, Wayne's World, Jumpin' Jack Flash, Back to the Future, Butch and Sundance, Thelma and Louise, A Few Good Men, The Horse Whisperer, Close Encounters, ET, Jurassic Park, the original Terminator, As Good As it Gets, Ghost, Top Gun, any of the Indiana Jones, the older Star Wars......... I am happy to rewatch any of them any time they may appear on current scheduling.

I loved the book Shogun, and the mini series, even though I never cared much for Richard Chamberlain. I liked Noble House (the book) also but the movie (or was it a mini series too?) was disappointing.

The Winds of War, and War and Remembrance, were well done- I would watch them again.

Sometimes I will watch the very old (1950s-early 1960s) shows when I want something that isn't full of sex, violence, profanity and so forth. I see enough ugliness and sometimes need a break from it, even if the shows are presenting a whitewashed, simplistic version of life.

I am in the process of re-watching Major Crimes, and still enjoy it. I really liked The Closer also and watched it last winter.

I think my all time favorite, re-watched more than twice TV show is the BBC/ PBS 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice.

I have an antenna tv so many of the stations air "old" tv shows from the 1950s and 1960s. I never get tired of watching any of the Star Trek series. I can watch them over and over. At 8 pm every night but Saturday Star Trek runs all the series in a row on H&I starting with the original at 8 pm, then The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, then Enterprise which ends at 1:00 am. I have my brother and cousin hooked on them now. They had only seen the original series when they were kids. Sometimes we miss The Next Generation because of other comedy shows that are new but we watch the rest of the Star Trek shows until 1 am. haha my brother and cousin are amazed how much I know about the series, the characters, recognize the ships and the various aliens. (My best friend was a die hard Trekker and he had the costume and would attend all the Star Trek fan coventions. He even bought me a Warf doll, communication badges and other various items from the show} While the show is on my brother sits with his phone and looks up info about the characters. If West Wing was on tv again I woud watch that. I loved that show.
