Does anyone else find themselves perpetually watching reruns of the favorite sitcoms during the day? Often when I am off work or go in late, I end up turning on 'Full House', a popular show from my childhood, or 'Everybody Loves Raymond' and 'Home Improvement', both enjoyable, long-running sitcoms. It's nice to have a sense of nostalgia and "good ol' days" when watching these shows. Are you watching any of these shows? Do you feel good when you watch your favorite sitcom reruns? Which ones do you find yourself watching over & over again? P.S. I also love 'The Nanny' and 'Will & Grace', but those are both on late at night.

my hubby and i have been getting old tv show dvds from the library. he has been watching 'barney miller', 'hogans heros', 'night court' and plus we have been enjoying 'emergency!', 'chips' and 'perry mason'. we are fortunate enough to get 'm*a*s*h' on our local history channel every day.

A generation before me ;-) M*A*S*H is a classic! Night Court was always funny...definitely a good rerun. 'Hogans Heros' and 'Perry Mason' are both classics too (heard my mom talk about them), although I've never seen either one. Terrific idea to borrow them from the library! I hadn't even thought about them having those, so will be going to check out mine now. :)

Oh my. I could watch reruns of Full House for 24 hours straight and not be sick of it. How can you ever get sick of Stephanie, Deej, and cutie pie Michelle and her cute little sayings? And hunk John Stamos? I only sometimes get annoyed with Joey & Danny, who get a little overbearing at times. Hah. It's definitely one of my favorite shows from childhood too. I'll watch ANY reruns. I love those older movies. I used to watch the Cosby Show, All in the Family, Family Ties, Three's Company, and the Facts of Life over and over again on Nick at Nite - probably 5 years ago. I loved those shows, though. They were awesome - timeless! (Timeless except for the fashions that the characters wore. LOL.) I feel good when I watch any of these old sitcoms -they're generally "feel good" shows. They almost always end with a typical "happy ending" and always end with a moral; always teach us some valuable lesson (ESPECIALLY Full House.) It's almost like you're becoming a more wholesome person just by watching these. LOL. Nowdays, shows are MUCH more contreversial and hard-hitting, if you ask me. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing - but I've watched some episodes of Law & Order SVU or 24 or Degrassi or any of those other "new" series that have left me literally in TEARS from the depression-inducing shows. Not all are like that, obviously, but I don't EVER remember an episode of Three's Company bringing me to tears. I love both old AND new shows; mainly new shows - but sometimes, for nostalgic purposes, we need to look back and remember what sitcoms USED to be about, yanno?

I find myself watching the Frasier reruns late at night. I never watched it when it was on. I guess being in the Pacific Northwest, something strikes me as very familiar about the show. After a couple of Frasier reruns, I sometimes catch the next one which is 'That's 70's show'. This one is timeless, the date setting is the same so it never gets old.
