Retro Shows
#1
Hi Guys Smile


Do you like to watch TV shows from 60s - 90s and 2000s?


Some TV shows are really nice (eg. Bewitched, Six-million dollar man, Seinfeld, Baywatch, Smallville etc.) and I still enjoy watching them now.


How are these shows available in US and Europe? There used to be DVDs available but I think it's not available nowadays. Are there streaming services in your country that show all the retro shows?

I sometimes feel like this: Time machines don't exist. But these shows somehow serve like a time machine in a way where I get to relive my memories from teenage and youth years.

You might find DVD's in places like thrift stores or some specialty stores (think record stores). Different platforms like Netflix will have a lot of those shows. Of course the thing right now is for networks to pull content and put it on their own streaming platform, like Disney+, Peacock, Paramount+ and whatever else. The way you can watch some of this content is through a VPN. So if Netflix in your region didn't have a specific show you would use a VPN to watch what is available in another region like North America, Europe, etc.

The other way is through piracy which is illegal and a do at your own risk thing. So, I won't explain how that is supposed to work.

Is Married With Children retro? lol

It just depends on what it is. Some stuff hasn't aged well, others have. I do think a lot of people will be re-watching "WKRP in Cincinnati," the guy who played Johnny Fever passed away yesterday at the age of 81.

Oh geez.....70s shows I used to watch.

Good Times, All In The Family, Diff'rent Strokes, Facts of Life, Love Boat and Fantasy Island.

80s, Beverly Hills 90210 was my fave for a long time.

90s to 2000s, that was when I turned to the 'supernatural', and watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Charmed.

I just googled about Married with Children as I have never watched that show before. I think it's a retro show too. Smile

I can't believe Ed O'Neill from 'Modern Family' has acted in this show too! He looked so young!

Omg I used to watch many of these shows too!

I really liked the first episode of Twilight Zone 'Where Is Everybody?'. I find the storyline was well-plotted and interesting. Smile

It feels like it was only a few years ago when I watched the shows 'Charmed' and 'Buffy the vampire slayer' in TV. I really miss the 90s. :')

I guess 1987 is retro now lol. Hard to believe that was 34 years ago and I was pooping in diapers at that time lol

Definitely humor that wouldn't work at all in today's sitcoms....
