I was too young to watch The Naked City and Peter Gunn when they were on originally, or even when they were in repeat. I saw them both recently for the first time. I can't get over how good a lot of the Naked City episodes are, nor the wittiness of the dialogue between Peter Gunn and Edie Hart, not to mention the blatant suggestion that they are sleeping together unmarried.

Route 66 and The Fugitive both presented an America that’s long gone…small that looked different from each other, farming ranches, orchards, small, inherited family owned businesses. I remember one episode where a woman who had been running a family farmstead/orchard was fighting to save it from her evil stepson who wanted to sell the land. The stepson dies and woman says, “I’m gonna stay. I’m keeping it the way it is. And I’m going to share it with my Mexican immigrant workers who my evil stepson humiliated and tried to kill.”
And I thought, “Honey, that’s a Walmart on a superhighway now.”

For nostalgia I sometimes watch old shows like the old B&W Forsyte Saga (despite the use of gray face powder to convey age), Upstairs Downstairs and I, Claudius. Today’s audiences would never accept the bare bones sets and stilted theatrical acting, but we were used to bare boned sets in theaters and theatrical acting, so it was no big deal. I tried to rewatch Elizabeth R (Glenda Jackson) and Six Wives of Henry VIIl, but they were even too bare boned for me I saw a horrible reboot of Open All Hours that made me want to throw something at the tv.

I liked that Patty Duke wasn’t beautiful (like Natalie Wood), or conventionally pretty (like Sandra Dee), or cute-as-a-button (like Sally Field in Gidget). She looked like a common, middle class (though the Lanes were upper middle class) Irish American teenaged girl. I so wanted to be her when I got to be a teen. She ran for class president, she was secretary of student clubs, she went to house parties and school dances, she raised funds for the football team and children’s charities. She wore different clothes in almost every scene (setting the tone for the future tv series Friends). I don’t mean she wore different clothes as Patty than the clothes she wore as Cathy. I mean she worked different clothes in almost every scene as Patty. She had a boyfriend she could count on for a date, but she swooned and chased guys like Sal Mineo (in vain, alas) and Chad & Jeremy.
I was sorely disappointed in high school, especially as my parents sent me to a newly built catholic high school, so I had to wear the same clothes every day and there were no student clubs or dances. I still yearn to be Patty Lane.

Naked City, the precursor to Law & Order. New York never looked more New York-ish.
|by Anonymous||reply 118||September 6, 2023 2:16 AM|
Was it really the precursor to Law & Order? The thing I loved most about The Naked City, which remains brilliant on its best day, is that it was always far more interested in the "criminal" than the cops. I put criminal in quotes because many of them were oddballs who ended up getting counselling or referred to services by the cops instead of being arrested. (Almost none of them got shot by the cops, either!) The vast majority of the show was always with them. It wasn't a procedural at all.
It is obvious looking back at it that its writers were very gripped by the new focus on psychology, so it was all about what motivated the folks on the wrong side of the law. Sometimes it's a bit facile with that, other times really interesting.
And you're right, it loved every aspect of New York (that 50s/60s TV could go into).

Another thumbs up for Naked City. Great writing, solid acting, and never knew this show existed until MeTV. Also thanks to them I have developed a huge love of Batman and Land of The Giants, and their vintage cartoons rock.
Mission Impossible is also a master class in being to ascribe visual details to specific years - and the shifts in style over those seven seasons were both plentiful and nuanced.

I can't believe that I now find weeknightly back-to-back MeTV reruns of "The Beverly Hillbillies" and "Green Acres" as my comfort-zone-go-to shows to watch. I remember there being a time when they seemed so stupid to me but, in comparison with all the dreck that's come to be shown on TV and with all the crap going on in the news/our world in the years since, now I find them to be a kind of soothing and fun escape for an hour on weeknights. The actors were actually pretty funny, and the writing especially sharp and fun on "Acres." Love my Eva Gabor. :)

Until recently, my nightly comfort TV was old (from the early 2000s) episodes of Antiques Roadshow UK. The hair! The teeth! The clothes! The accents! And some nice antiques! I don't know if the Roku Channel lost the rights, but they're now requiring a paid subscription to AMC+ or BritBox (and from what I can tell neither has nearly as many episodes or seasons as the Roku Channel did). I'm hoping Roku gets it back someday because even though it was my go-to I'm not paying for it.

I love watching old tv shows and seeing the styles. 1950s/60s Sitcoms had “classic traditional” furniture. Fireplaces, armchairs. Then there were “cozy” interiors, with all that early American furniture. I Love Lucy’s “farmhouse chic” with a loft made me want so badly to marry a Cuban entertainer so i could have a farm in Connecticut.
The Brady Bunch had a “modern” house with that staircase and the orange kitchen. Bob Newhart Shiw (the first one, in chicago) — the characters are wearing clothes that match colors of the room they were in. That was a huge lust for me …everybody neatly dressed and coiffed, stylish and matching the wallpaper. If only real life could be like that.
The Fugitive often had that “homey” early American/1950s farmhouse decor, with those oval, branded rugs and a wooden rocking chair.

My comment is not on the actual stuff but the quality of it. MEtv runs/has run hi-def versions Andy Griffith, Perry Mason, Leave it to Beaver, Gomer Pyle and Twilight Zone. Start tv runs refreshed Murder She Wrote eps. These are not quite hi-def but are a vast improvement over those that were run on Cozy tv. Revived shows such as Roseann and Third Rock have been scaled up from their aspect ratio to the present letterbox format. This results in John Goodman's head being cut off. I think the same thing happened to Highway Patrol, which has a lot of closeups of Broderick Crawford. This could be useful if you have children who need to be punished. I think it must greed that precludes old shows from being upgraded.

It’s funny but I didn’t love many of these shows when they originally aired. Like most kids I watched them because they were on. Some were great, but many (like the plethora of westerns without a lot of action, and the endless choices of detective shows), though well done, were really kind of unexciting.
|by Anonymous||reply 181||September 23, 2023 10:54 PM|
When these shows were on there was one more hour of broadcast (primetime) than there is now. The FCC decommissioned it so affiliate channels could develop local programming. I think this was in 1971. This only worked that way with the Westinghouse Group of channels for something called Evening Magazine. The freeing up of the hour proved to be a bonanza for the syndication market. Chunks of old shows have cut out to sell more ad time. Credits are run in a little window for the same reason. Lately I've noticed there is no longer a fade to black between program and ad. Just a quick and immediate cut.

r182 Prime time used to begin at 7:30 p.m. In 1971, the FCC decreed that it would begin at 8 p.m., thus giving local channels an extra 30 minutes for evening programming. Not an extra hour.
This gave rise to number of nighttime versions of game shows that were syndicated all over the nation-- -- Name That Tune, Price is Right and later Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune.
The name of the Westinghouse Group's syndicated news magazine was PM Magazine.

Medical shows get outdated pretty fast. I’m not just talking about the ridiculous lengths doctors go to to treat their patients - I saw exactly one episode of House and it was just as ridiculous as any Marcus Welby episode where James Brolin gets in a motorcycle chase to treat some wayward teen diabetic.
The times were different. A Dr could withhold information from a patient in these shows. “Whatever you do, don’t tell my wife she’s dying.”
Ben Casey was a sexist pig. He demanded nurses drop what they were doing and do exactly as he told them to do RIGHT NOW, NURSE! And the nurse would scurry, “Yes doctor, whatever you say doctor!” Nurses always wore white uniforms, white caps and high heels.
There were old fashioned treatments; get an oxygen tent! Put this patient in the isolation ward! Dr Kildare was very much about social issues of the day, like “let’s not treated retarded people like animals.” Or “we should operate on the son of a communist dictator, not let him die!” A mother believes her daughter who lost an eye will never be able to marry.
And people did things like smoking pipes, cigars and cigarettes in hospitals. It’s ok to see an occasional Twilight Zone with smoking patients and medical workers, but not in every episode of a medical series. And there are things like white actors playing non-white characters. Then there are stereotypical character - the old complaining Jewish mother, the innocent, childlike immigrant, the teenagers who must get married because the girl is pregnant.
I’ve watched a few Kildare and Ben Casey episodes and they were like lead balloons,

'Quincy:' Candace Hilligoss, billed as Candace Coster (she was married to Nicolas Coster at the time), most famous for 'Carnival of Souls', was in season 6, Episode 8 (per IMDb) of 'Quincy.' The episode was 'Stain of Guilt' and the cast included Sid Haig, Val Bisoglio, Robert Ito, Ed Begley jr. and Carolyn Jones. FETV is currently showing season 5 and I think it's on another "old shit" channel. Probably streaming somewhere(s).

R241, I haven't seen Kildare in years, but Ben Casey was an excellent show - tightly written, with compelling plots and often with a dark and surprisingly modern theme. The medicine itself (diagnosis, treatment and prognosis) was accurate for its time; in fact, it's interesting to see what has changed and what is still substantially the same. The overall health care world is not portrayed accurately, but TV medical shows never do so because they're not documentaries. They're telling a story.
Yes, people smoked in 1962, even in hospitals. Nurses wore uniforms and caps. It's unfortunate that you can't watch a TV show from more than half a century ago without imposing modern sensibilities, but that's your loss.
I wish Ben Casey had been remastered and made available for streaming. The DVDs I have are poor quality and incomplete.

Northern Exposure - (1990-1995) aside from some unfortunate fashion looks, it holds up remarkably well
Dark Shadows - (1966-1971) I will binge watch another 20 episodes or so now and then when I have another project that isn't too demanding; and then I don't feel the urge again for another 9 months or a year.

R326, it's ridiculously hard to find an answer online to the simple question, "how many Perry Mason TV episodes were based on Erle Stanley Gardner's novels?" I gave up looking, but here's a list of Perry Mason novels, and a lot of those titles look awfully familiar. I think quite a few of the TV episodes - perhaps more in the early seasons, logically - were based on the novels.
Sometimes you can tell when an episode was based on one of Gardner's early books because the plot details feel a bit dated for the TV show's time. For example, in the Case of the Hesitant Hostess (S1,E29, original air date April 5, 1958), there's an episode that centers around a taxi-dance hall. The entire story feels very 1930s but in particular that setting was funny. First, taxi-dancers and their places of work were all but gone by the late '50s. Second, they used ludicrously anachronistic stock footage to introduce the setting, with scenes obviously from the 1940s.

R330, Collins was well past the age where a real LAPD detective would have retired (voluntarily or not). It was not a brilliant piece of casting and yet, as with all the regulars, I cannot image the role with anyone else in it. There’s not one regular who isn’t a critical part of the team that made the show such an enduring delight.
Besides PM, I’ve only seen Bill Hopper in a couple of cheesy B&W sci-fi movies. I love movies like that, but they don’t exactly showcase an actor’s skill. (I’ve seen The Bad Seed, but I have no recollection of him in it.) Anyway, while he doesn’t show much of a range as Paul Drake, he makes the character believable, likeable and charming.

If you're watching on MeTV, MeTV+ and channels like that, don't forget that scenes have been cut out to allow for additional commercials.
An hour-long show in the 50s and 60s had 51-52 minutes of story and 8-9 minutes of commercials.
Today, the mesothelioma channels typically have 15 minutes of commercials, so 6-7 additional minutes of footage has been cut out.
It's possible that in some of the episodes where you said that Barbara Hale had few or no lines, she actually did have more lines in the original broadcast but they were trimmed out to allow for more more commercials.

There is a gorgeous, crystal-clear remaster of the series available at Amazon Prime free with ads or a Paramount subscription and on DVD. If you really love PM, there's no substitute for seeing the uncut originals in beautiful quality.
Unless they've changed the streaming episode list, there are episodes that are on the DVDs that aren't streamed. When I discovered this, I was like a kid at Christmas.

The Rifleman, since I was a little kid I've loved it. Great that it's on demand/streaming pretty much everywhere.
Laramie. Just "discovered" it in the middle of COVID lockdowns, and have been obsessed with it ever since. Robert Fuller is so gorgeous, and such a tight little craft. And John Smith's build is perfect imo. Love his easy way of moving. And their chemistry, holy fuck! You cannot make me believe those two weren't fucking each other.
[Wagon Train. What a great series. The network/producers were able to pull some heavyweight actors for guests-- Miss Barbara Stanwyck (TWICE!), Bette Davis (TWICE!), Jane Wyman, Ronald Reagan (boooo!), Charles Laughton, Farley Granger, Rhonda Fleming, DL fave Anne Baxter in a wonderful episode, my beloved Marie Windsor, Ann Blyth, Juanita Moore, James MacArthur, Robert Blake, Ernest Borgnine, Lee Marvin, etc.--whoo-wee! The great John Ford even directed an episode. And the regulars were so damned likeable--I have a mad thing for Terry Wilson, dead for many years now.
Perry Mason. Agree with all the previous posters. Wanna know what mid-century modern aesthetic looked and sounded like? Cue up Perry Mason!
Mannix. My sister thinks it's the most boring thing ever, and it does tend to be slow-moving. But that opening theme/montage is EVERYTHING, and Mike Connors and Gail Fisher were great together.
Emergency! HAAAATED it when I was a kid, love it now. Cast was perfect, and it's fun watching how far paramedicine has progressed from then.
Quincy. Yet another show I HAAAATED when it was on, but I gave it another chance 4-5 months ago, and now it's regular viewing for me on FETV.
Highway Patrol. May seem stodgy by today's standards, and Broderick Crawford was no Errol Flynn, but he OWNS that show. What a great actor.
Hawaii Five-0. Loved it when I was a kid, love it now. The modern version was execrable, not even in the same planet as the OG.
Tales From Wells Fargo. Another of the oldies I'd never heard of before the pandemic shutdown. Damn, Dale Robertson is so hot, and so fun to watch.

Go on YouTube and watch an episode of Mr. Kovac. (or Kovak) yum yum. In one episode he has Diana Taylor's teenage pussy all wet. 💦

Hmm. Firming on the DL's theory that JFK held a gay card on at least a "casuals" basis.

Fan magazines in the 1960s played up the similar physical appearances of James Franciscus and Richard Chamberlain.

I wonder whether they ever hooked up.

[quote]Perry Mason. Agree with all the previous posters. Wanna know what mid-century modern aesthetic looked and sounded like? Cue up Perry Mason!
Agree, R347. That's why the episodes are so watchable over and over, even though I know the plots already. Re-viewing is rewarded with little (mostly unintentional) glimpses of life ca. 1960. Not just the cars and clothes and set decoration, but how people thought.

I LOVE Perry Mason. Except for the couple of shows where someone kind of fills in for him. Once I believe it was Bette Davis. Those episodes weren't just bad. They were stunningly awful. I wonder how many times that hot, young guy had to let Perry Mason blow him before he got the six or so episode gig.

That is HILARIOUS, R360/R361! And so dead-on.
My siblings and I had a subscription to Mad Magazine, but like Mr. Novak, that issue was before my time.
I only remember James Franciscus in [italic]Longstreet. Such a crush I had on him! [/italic] I seem to recall it was set in New Orleans.

I watch Adam 12 for two very obvious reasons. I have jacked off to Reed.
