Barney Miller - Abe Vigoda was hilarious as Sgt. Fish, but the whole ensemble added to the show. James Gregory - aka Inspector Luger - played the first gorilla general in The Planet of the Apes films. FYI

Columbo is rerun on the COZI channel, if you can get it - there’re many channels that run Dean Martin’s roasts, Carson cut down to just the hour interview segments, etc. H & I (Heroes and Icons) shows all four Star Trek series Monday through Friday, beginning at 9 PM EST. FYI

I love most of these shows, but I’m ok with re-runs.

I don’t want any of them to be brought back if that means creating new episodes. I want my only reference to be their original non-PC format.

The Red Skelton Hour. And it is now on Sat. nights on RFD TV. I record it every Sat. I grew up watching him. And in 1985 I also got to see him live at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, GA. also like Stingray, Joe90. Thunderbirds GO, And Captain Scarlet. These were all done with puppets.

These are some seriously old shows, folks! I remember some from when I was very young. My girl missed most of them, so we’re working through some standards like Friends, Seinfeld, Battlestar Galactica (remake), Star Trek (TNG, Voyager, Enterprise), and Community.

My brain is more like Graham Norton, Fringe, Spin City, House, Lie to Me, 2.5 Men, Dharma & Greg, Will & Grace, Wilfred, Whitney, Top Gear, Mork and Mindy, Dr. Who, The Following, Blacklist, Defiance, Hannibal, Grimm, Orphan Black, Big Bang, Frasier, Bates Motel, The 100.

Not sure if that is old school or not…

Assuming we get to bring back the actor then there is only one top choice.
Wanted Dead Or Alive, because no matter how cool others might be nobody will ever be Steve McQueen COOL.

And Knight Rider. I watch a few last week. Really something compared to what we produce today. A new girl in every episode…
