Childhood Blast from the Past

#1 Postby Nicholas_Weir » Sun Dec 04, 2011 8:17 pm

I just bought one of my favourite tv series the other day from when I was a little kid. It was my favourite show: Captain Planet.

Anyone else used to watch it?

I just finished episode 2 of season 1.

(Don't pay me out it is a god show, despite the age classification).

Good for you, Nicholas!

Dukes of Hazzard http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRX4mlFi06A (I only wanted the Charger and Tom Wopat, in that order. Okay, maybe Tom Wopat IN the Charger.)
M*A*S*H http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIdyErir ... re=related (Wished Colonel Potter was my dad. And Hawkeye was my brother. And Radar lived down the street.)
Star Trek http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGnTfg-M ... re=related (Vulcans are sexy. So are savvy, engineer types with Scottish accents.)
Magnum P.I. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBVHKwf5 ... re=related (Again with the car. Plus, T.C. was cute. Okay, I'll take the helicopter, too.)
Airwolf http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCXbvRrz7Uo (Theme music was awesome. That's pretty much it. Okay, I'll take the helicopter.)
The A Team http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MVonyVSQoM (Had a crush on George Peppard since Breakfast at Tiffany's. Something about the confident, pompous thing does it for me....)
The Six Million Dollar Man http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HofoK_QQxGc (That bionic eye was just cool. And he had sexy eyebrows, what can I say?)
Night Court http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86887s5DIXA (John Larroquette and Marsha Warfield were hysterical together. Minor crush on Harry Andersen and Richard Moll simultaneously.)
Johnny Quest http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D88g1vCy ... re=related (Okay, the spider thing freaks me out still.)
Simon & Simon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDhz_mVc ... re=related (Favorite show of all time, still watch it. Jameson Parker, Mmmmm.) http://www.hulu.com/simon-and-simon
Moonlighting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqzW2Hfk ... re=related (Greatest one liners of all time. Many memorized.)
The Fall Guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aw-GP1D6cdo (Even without the bionic eye, he's still hot.)
CHiPs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTDOLoDi ... re=related (Theme music was only thing worth tuning in for.)
Miami Vice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1JTj6rssW4 (Awesome intro. You gotta dance. You just gotta.)

Remember these? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tk25rk0_ ... re=related

Brace yourself for some serious flashbacks:

That's okay, I'm sure Oz hammered your brain with it's own flavor of weird back in the day. Hey, I forgot what is quite possibly the most important cheesy 80s show to a bodybuilding forum: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoILzi5t ... re=related

And this is for you, Nicholas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzZmU0aG ... re=related I used to sing the entire Animaniacs theme song around the weight room in Denver to annoy the piss out of annoying people. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KA0TS9l_nJE

Wow, lots more, but that's all that comes to mind.

How fun :)

Hey, you started it! :lol: And you know you love it. Truth is, whenever I'm having a particularly sucky day, YouTube is my friend and ally. Spending twenty minutes watching stupid human tricks (like this: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=26948) or watching trippy 60s disco parties distracts me just long enough to put the gun down and step away from the cookies.

Hey, guess what I'm picking up at my local library today after having them track it down for me over three counties? Frank Frazetta's "Fire and Ice." (Caution: nudity http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9Hif1CCMSs) I'm hoping the DVD has some Extra Features worth watching. Back in my wouldn't-it-be-romantic-to-be-a-starving-artist days, I was heavily influenced by these animated movies because all the art was done painstakingly by hand, one frame at a time, early Disney style. I could see myself as a matte painter, rendering mind-blowing scenes and backdrops for all the action to race across. But then I learned that patience was involved and I decided that, clearly, this was not the line of work for me. Incidentally, the character of Darkwolf was one of my inspirations to be a body builder.

I watched television growing up and it inspired me NOT to eat meat. All depends on what you watch and with what awareness you watch it. I gave my 25" screen away in 2006. These are the only two shows I watch now....
