Let's talk about 1970's television. The '70's were childhood and teen years for me, so of course I enjoyed TV!
My favorite childhood shows were from the 1970's -- The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family. I loved the more everyday adventures of the suburban Brady family, while I adored the groovy tunes on The Partridge Family. (Plus, of course, David Cassidy.)
My parents were big fans of the MTM shows -- The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show, and Rhoda. We watched those together as a family. My Mom loved The Mary Tyler Moore Show best, with Mary's great wardrobe and tv station camaraderie. My Dad liked the wry wit of The Bob Newhart Show. Me? I liked Rhoda because she had a cool job (designing NYC department store windows) and a handsome boyfriend (later, husband). As an adult, I still adore all three of these shows. When they are in the Me-TV rotation, I will make time to watch them.
I recently discovered a pretty amazing website. It's called My '70's TV. You can tune into all types of 1970's programming -- comedies, dramas, soap operas, music videos, commercials, and much more. I watched for just a few minutes and saw a commercial for Wilson tennis balls, a few minutes of Eight Is Enough, and part of a Roger Thorpe episode of Guiding Light. Fun! And free. I think you would enjoy this site too: My '70's TV.
