Which CLASSIC TELEVISION Series 50s/60s/70s are you watching?


(SARTANA DJANGO BALLADS) #1

HAWAII FIVE- 0 1968-1980 JACK LORD James McArthur Richard Denning

One of the all time classic, longest running Police Series I could watch it day and night :smiley:

JACK LORD is an all time TV Series Hero, Great screen presence, dignity, charm, honesty. The Hawaii Five-0 team comprised also wonderful support from McArthur.

HAWAII an island of paradise, beauty, exotic attractions is the setting for this CULT TV.

My Vote For HAWAII FIVE-0 is 18 out of 20 :smiley:

PS. Sorry the POLL was meant to allow 5 votes but it seems to allow only 1. :-\

I am not currently watching it but I love that series “Rawhide” with Clint Eastwood. Haven´t seen all of it, only the first 20 or 30 episodes. It´s great to see the young Eastwood in this classic. Poor thing is I have never seen it in normal TV in Germany, only on Pay-TV.
I am more concentrating on radio series of the 50s especially (The Six Shooter with Jimmy Stewart etc.). Those are really wonderful.

I do not understand what yoo mean; what is exactly the difference in watching it on normal TV or on Pay-TV ?

I saw series like Rawhide and Gunsmoke on German TV when I was a kid. German television was more lenient than Dutch/Belgian television in those days and showed such series in the afternoon. They were dubbed in German, so the first lines I heard from Clint might well have been spoken in that language. I remember Gunsmoke was called Rauchende Colts, but don’t remember the German name of Rawhide.

Why only ‘50s/60s/70s’? Why 80s aren’t included? i love “Miami Vice” and “Magnum PI” :slight_smile:


(SARTANA DJANGO BALLADS) #7

Because the “generally accepted” and “definition” of CLASSIC TV Series is 1950-1979 :smiley:

I AGREE with that 100% as most of my favourite TV series are 1955-1978 . :o

Having said that I liked a little bit ;D Thomas Magnum and his easy going Hawaii fun.

If you wish to post any 80s please feel free , nobody will bite you :wink:

I realy like to watch “Land of the Giants” and the 60s “Batman” series :slight_smile:


(Phil H) #9

Me too, altough I haven’t seen Land of the Giants in ages. The old Batman series is being re run here in the UK at the moment though and it’s been a real joy to watch my family enjoying as much as I did when I was a nipper. Biff!! Zzonkk!! Kpow!! Great stuff.

I watched The Avengers last night.
A story about astronomists getting killed with a laser.
Some other astronomist, who was nearly blind, was the perpetrator, for a reason that was left more than a bit obscure.
But John Steed and Emma Peel solved the case in time.
As a child I found Emma terribly sexy.
She has’t changed a bit in all those years.


(ENNIOO) #11

Yes, I like The Avengers as very original and alot of it is still to this day.

And I don’t even mind The New Avengers with all that 70’s fashion going on and that theme music.

What did you do to her, lieutenant?

Here you got the normal public TV (ARD + ZDF) where everybody pays for, then cable TV with commercials for free and you got special pay TV (like in the USA I think), you don´t have that damn commercials but pay a special price. Isn´t it normal everywhere?
Rawhide is called “Tausend Meilen Staub” nowadays on German but I really gotta have it on DVD.

I remember an episode of Married with children and Al’s fascination with Diana Rigg, tracking down some obscure video tape with her in it. To Al’s horror -his whole fantasy about her ws ruined- it turned out to be some of her more recent work. Your nostalgic (sentimental?) remarks about Rigg seem very similar, that’s why I posted it.

That was not my question. Cable + Pay TV work the same way here.
But you said you are sorry you have only seen Rawhide on Pay TV, not on normal TV, so I wondered whether they made cuts on Pay TV or something like that.

Tausend Meilen Staub - a nice title.


(scherpschutter) #17

Ah, now I understand.
You are talking about Diana Rigg, I was talking about Emma Peel.

Tausend Meilen Staub - a nice title.[/quote]OK. I meant I have never seen it running in “Open” TV, only on PayTV. It´s not a series they repeat every year.
Other thing is I am only watching PayTV because I hate every interruption by commercials plus they cut things like they want. You must know when it comes to PayTV, Germany is a third world country, things are getting better slowly…
I especially love the soundtrack of Rawhide, knew the music my whole life


(Phantom Stranger) #19

Looking through my collection I remembered I also have:

“Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea”(corny but fun)
“Dark Shadows”
“Charlie’s Angels"
Wanted: Dead Or Alive” (Steve McQueen: Mr.Cool)

more later

The Streets of San Francisco was pretty good and of course Columbo.
