Upon meeting tg I learned that he loved loved loved the show Scrubs. Though he never watched the series on television, only DVD. I thought this was strange, how could you not want to be on the edge of your seat on Thursday nights to see what crazy things would happen in the lives of those at Sacred Heart? Well, I am now converted to one of those who watches shows on DVD. It is just too wonderful to sit down at night with a box full of chicken kickers and know that I can see ten episodes of a show in a row without commercials to ruin them for me. I also have an invisible queue in my head of the shows that I must buy to watch in the future. Life has never felt more complete. Here are the top 7 retro series on DVD at this point in time. (Note: shows that are on constant rerun on television have little chance of making the list)
I was sometimes allowed to stay up past my bedtime to watch this show. I would grab a pillow and a blanket and lay on the living room floor. And I would fall asleep, every time. So I think I should watch them again and see if they would have been worth fighting the sandman.
Could be the greatest theme show intro ever, just when Isaac Washington points right at you. I would always give the two handed point back…so did you.
5.Doogie Howser MD
I liked this show when it was on, and I never really thought about it again. But the best part was at the end of the day, little Doogie, would whip out the computer diary page and let us know his inner most secrets. Thanks Neil Patrick Harris. Thanks even more for Purple People Eater.
4.Get a Life
It’s a tv show with Chris Elliot (boo) and it takes place in my current home, St Paul, (yay) I actually remember watching this show during it’s original and very short run.
Why? Is it the Dance of Joy? Is it learning about the Island of Mypos? Of course not Don’t be ridiculous, it’s the opening song and that guy leaning against the fence with shades on bobbing his head. (you can find him at about second 23 of the video)
1. Sledge Hammer
I don’t think they could get away with a show about a man in love with his gun today. Which is why this is the next series on my list to buy. I cannot believe I would watch the crap out of this show when I was 7. I had a great sense of humor at an early age apparently.
