Week of Links #10

Beautiful weather all this week!  I’ve been able to break out some of my summer clothes and have worn skirts and dresses most of the time.  I wish I could be taking pictures to share, but working two jobs (essentially) has my mind beyond such frivilous things :)  That and by the time I remember to take a pic of my outfit, I’ve already come home and slipped into pajamas.  Oh well.

For some reason this week I’ve been thinking of old TV shows that I remember watching when I was a kid.  Some I can’t find online, like Ramona (who by the way–and I didn’t know this until now–was played by Sarah Polley who was also in Road to Avonlea which was another show I loved watching!).

  • St. Elsewhere is a show I’ve heard of but didn’t know anything about until it popped up on Hulu.  Since ER is now gone this has been a neat replacement!
  • I love The Rockford Files and have had them playing on my computer during slow times at work.  I remember when I was little I would watch them with my dad when he came home for lunch.  Seasons 1-3 are on Hulu, but all 6 seasons are on instant play with Netflix.
  • And who could forget Little House on the Prairie?  At 10am every morning (until they changed to 9am–funny how I remember something little like that!), we stopped schooling and I planted myself in front of the tv.  I never missed an episode.
  • As far as cartoons went, Rocky & Bullwinkle and Inspector Gadget were my faves growing up.
  • Every Saturday night, we would order pizza and watch Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation, back to back.  I have lived long and prospered thanks to those nights.
  • A little ocean related sci-fi:  Did anyone ever watch SeaQuest or Ocean Girl?  I would have dreams that I was a mermaid and could breathe underwater.  It was awesome.

What were some of your favorite TV shows growing up?

  1. I had forgotten about pizza night and Star Trek! Do you remember me crying during almost every episode of “Little House?” And I don’t know why, but I thought of “Ocean Girl” just the other day and wondered why!
