Classic TV. The shows that helped define you.

I can hazerd the guess that we all have those shows. That Saturday morning cartoon that made you religiously wake up at 7am to watch every week for years. The prime time series where you had to catch every episode.


You know the ones. The ones you consider timeless classics the helped mold your prefrences for years to come.


I remember mine. As a child it was Masters of the Universe, I watched almost every episode I could catch for so many years. And it created the bias I have today for most of the cartoons that came out afterward. As a teen it was Stargate SG-1. It influenced my tastes in Science Fiction for years to come.


I would like to know some other folks classic favs. Those shows that stuck in your heart so tightly that you bought the entire series boxed set as soon as you found out it existed.

Pretty much anything on the History Channel


Yeah I watched my share of Pokemon and Digimon and DBZ and even actual classics like I Dream of Jeannie and Gilligan's Island (a three hour tour, a three hour tour) but my first love has always been history and science documentaries

I've been watching them since I was a young kid and I've never stopped

Right now I even have about 20 docs saved to my laptop that I like to watch when I go to bed
