    Lightbulb time for a new poll???

    hmmm...not that many responses in nearly 6 months, methinks it's time to hatch a new poll / thread with a broader base....

    "Have Gun Will Travel " is one of my all time favorites. That theme at the start of the show is awesome.
    I'm also a big fan of " The Rifleman" and " Gilligans Island."

But hey, my favourite colours are still orange and brown so what can I say!
    I agree with this sentiment, Jon. It is truly sad what has happened to the modern world: aggressive; actually, less racial tolerance overall (in my opinion); more non-racial prejudice (e.g. rich vs. poor, smart vs. dumb, etc.); a more lackadaisical work ethic; less "my word is bond" trust and more "I got the best of you" attitude, more "jackpot" mentality ("I'm gonna sue that company and take them to the cleaners!); more one-on-one confrontation ("look at me wrong and I'll sue your pants off!"); the neighborhood of "drive my car in and close the remote garage door before I even get out of the car" neighbors; the Girl Scout ringing the doorbell and homeowner hides under the couch ("someone rang my doorbell! If it was someone I knew coming here, they'd have texted me first!"); the rampant daily dependency on prescription and non-prescription drugs (for even children); the "offender for a word" mentality online ("you made a general joke about driving drunk; my sister-in-law's second cousin died from a drunk driver; it's not funny and you should be ashamed of yourself!"); the name calling online behind screennames ("You're a dipshit for being you." Signed, onehotmama!); the "I'm not here to help you, I'm here to berate you" form of online critiques; the "let's law-up and gun-up" societal norm.

    Society, as a whole, is more agitated. More nervous. Individuals are more isolated, and exhibiting the psychological issues associated with that isolation.

    All that said, I liked the Courtship of Eddie's Father (1969-1972).

    Agreed! Going through them starting with Season 1, Episode 1 on Netflix. I've noticed a sudden craving to play "Ridin' That New River Train" and "The Crawdad Song" on my uke, though (wouldn't it be fun to join Andy for a little pickin' on the front porch?).

    I love the episode with the Darlin's when they play Dooley, and of course Ernest T Bass is in that episode too.

    I had to pick The Partridge Family purely for the fact that Susan Dey fuelled my adolescent fantasies for many years.

    Also, we only had that and Happy Days. Never seen a single episode of the others .

    Oh yeah! So much good music on that show. My introduction to folk/bluegrass.
