wonder "What was I thinking?" I am talking about the old shows some of us used to watch. I remember I really liked Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. I watched it every week. Now looking back at them now they are so fake and silly. The sea monsters are a joke. Now the westerns I used to watch in the 50's and 60's are different. I think they are more realistic to the way life was and the clothes of that era than the ones they make now. Your thoughts.

Yes comparing the old movies to the movies right now, looks unbelievable stupid. We have a better technology when you compare them to the old ones. Yes their monsters look so fake. Even backgrounds are fake.

The monsters might look fake but the acting was sure better back then.

My brother and I were just talking about this the other day. I can't remember what show it was that we were watching but it was one we watched as kids.

@celticeagle It might have been Full House. We used to love to watch that show but it just doesn't have the appeal that it used to.

@celticeagle not even a little.. mostly it was cheezy sound effects partnered with SLOW MOTION that was make you supposed to think something extraordinary was happening. NOT.

@minx267 ...I usually enjoy the storyline anyway. Are you watching the new Supergirl? It started last week. Looks like it will be good.

I would like to watch some of the old 60 musicals again, I think I would still enjoy them just as much.

I liked Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. It was hokey but fun. Westerns like Bonanza, the Rifleman, Gunsmoke and more were fun to watch.

It took me quite a while before I got my first TV. I love the black and white ones too. It's like a whole different world from what ours is now.

I liked Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea also, it was a good program. I still think they are better than the stuff they have out now.

I have watched several of the old series of shows from the 1960s that I really enjoyed in those days. I have no idea what has been done to these because they are definitely not the same ones that I watched the first time around. The original ones were quite realistic and believable.
