I 8 Wednesdays—TV Shows

Every Wednesday I’ll give you a list of eight. This Wednesday I’m divulging eight TV shows that captured my attention for extended periods of time.

Family Ties
The Cosby Show
The Wonder Years
Santa Barbara
Beverly Hills 90201 (I never said I wouldn’t be embarrassed sharing these)

  1. They are going back a bit ;)

    Of those, I watched Family Ties, Cosby Show, Friends, and Lost. I also loved scifi so I watched Babylon 5 and Firefly.

  2. You have a wide variety here, Wendy. Did any of them inspire you as a writer?

    My daughter had a crush on Michael J. Fox, so we watched Family Ties a LOT.

    Have a great Wednesday,

  3. OOOo OOOO! Fun post! :) My 8:

    Cosby Show :)
    Little House on the Prairie
    CSI Miami
    I Love Lucy :)

    ... I wasn't "allowed" to watch 90210 so I had to "sneak" it periodically LOL!

  4. I used to LOVE Family Ties and the Cosby Show. Remember when TV was that good? I also miss I Love Lucy, and I can never find it on.

  5. All great shows! Well except I can't say about Lost. I've never seen it. Can you believe that?

  6. I'm dating myself, but I loved The Wonder Years. I'll date myself further to say that I used to wait eagerly for every episode of The Waltons. I wanted John-Boy to fulfill his dream of being a writer. I felt his longing, since that was my dream too. And here I am decades later following mine and meeting many other wonderful writers on the journey.

  7. Great list!

    1. Cosby Show
    2. Golden Girls
    3. Dallas/Dynasty/Falcon Crest (they all belong together)
    4. Facts of Life
    5. Survivor

    I could go on forever!

  8. Love your list! I tend to be a reality junkie, so my faves are The Amazing Race and Project Runway.

  9. Can I tell you what a HUGE Santa Barbara fan I was? I named one of my characters Laken, Kelly, Eden... really I'm not that original. ;)

  10. I watched Families Ties and Cosby.

  11. What fun!! Don't think I could come up with eight shows, though??!!!

    I do love
    The Closer
    Law and Order

    AND Undercover Boss is so satisfying--has all the elements "The Moral Premise" talks about!!
    Funny, huh????

  12. Right now, I like Human Target, American Idol--yes, I know--, dog wisperer, and baseball. Oh there's more, but....

  13. Okay I'm siding with Karen and American Idol. The last couple of years I only watched half-heartedly. But this year I'm hooked again :)

    I loved the Wonder Years too. There's something so sweetly nostalgic about that one, and I can't change the channel if I happen upon it.

  14. The Wonder Years! I loved that show...and I thought it was so cool that I also went to McKinley high School!

    And Friends....never thought I'd find another show I loved as much...until How I Met Your Mother started....

    And there are times....when I'm having issues with my kids...I ask myself- "What would Cliff and Claire do??"

    These days, my favorite shows are: How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, Dancing with the Stars, Desperate Housewives and Chopped.

  15. I'll play. But since I rarely watch TV anymore, most will be oldies:

    Alton Brown's Good Eats
    BBC World News
    Andy Griffith
    Little House on the Prairie
    The Bill Cosby Show (80's?)
    America's Funniest Videos

  16. great shows. I don't watch much tv but friends keep telling me to watch day....

  17. I still love The Cosby Show. Every time I watch it I laugh hard. My husband and I watched a bunch of Family Ties episodes on Netflix a few months ago and we really enjoyed those too.

  18. Oh man... Lost = Amazing.

    Law and Order: SVU
    ER (watched every episode from the age of 10 when it started til it ended last year)
    Full House (am I dating myself here? LOL)


Writing through the Chaos

When I was a kid I begged my mom to drive me to a neighboring town so I could audition to be a tightrope walker. She refused. Hmm…wond...
