I am so sick of the TV options that are on now-a-days. I was just saying to Michael last week that there are never any prime time shows that are appropriate for kids. I remember watching Little House on the Prairie and other shows like Different Strokes (an interesting show looking at my current family), Charles in Charge, Happy Days, and many other shows, that were not so "risque" as the shows of today's standards.
The only show my kids currently watch is Extreme Home Makeover. Sometimes I let them watch American Idol or Dancing with the Stars- but those shows are so full of "sexiness" and I don't even like that. I am very desperate if I am letting them watch those shows, and it rarely happens. Actually, Hezekiah in particular, loves the Biggest Loser. And they are pretty good on that show at focusing on the health aspect of weight, so I am OK with that show as well.
During spring break, I realized that the local video rental store has the Gilligan's Island series and I rented the 2nd year series. The kids have loved it, even became obsessed with it. Now, I realize that Ginger and even Mary Ann, are quite sexy. But they are not too bad compared to today's standard. They like the show so much, that I just got on-line and ordered the complete series of Gilligan's Island.
I think I might also look into trying to get the Adams Family, Munsters, Brady Bunch and some others for when I really need something to pull out of the air! I can't wait to watch them all!
