This is why my family has opted to unplug the coax from the TV and do without broadcast/cable TV for the last five years. We get a couple of select programs via Netflix after they've been released to DVD but otherwise don't watch the TV other than movies.

I am not that old but growing up "way up north" we only had 1 channel and that was the Canadian channel. If you didn't like hockey you had best find your self a hobby on the days of hockey night in Canada.

Does anyone know who the Friendly Giant or Mr. Dressup were?


You bet I do. Being from the Falls you forgot to mention that we got Sesame Street in English/French (rather than English/Spanish), Glen Campbell and Romper Room.

Ah, the days when I WAS THE REMOTE ("Boy, get up there and switch it to channel 3")

You don't grow up in that town without knowing the names Huffer Christiansen and Bronco Nagurski.

Not sure how far back these are from, but I can remember "Walking Tall" and "Airwolf" as a couple of my favorites, Of course the "Dukes of Hazzard" was also a favorite, but I think that was from the mid 70's if I remember right.

We didn't get a whole lot of channels living out in the country. I think we had 3 and if the pres. was on he was on all three channels. Then you didn't get much choice. You either watched him or you found something else to do. I normally had "more important things to do" than to listen to the pres. Hey what can I say I was a kid!

I can still remember when farmers used a four row planter and had a cornpicker instead of combining the corn. Does that make me old? Now nobody wants any equipment that size. Everything is at least 12 or more row planters and the combines are so big you can barely get by them when they are going down the highway. What now takes them maybe two hours a day to do, it took back then most of a day to do that much.

At least I'm not old enough too remember them doing farm work with actual horses.

One of my favorites was Fireball XL5.
Yes, I know who Roy and the rest are as well.
