Ditch the current trends and visit the past

5 Shows that are as good today as they were 50 years ago

Who says the 50’s and 60’s are history? Instead of rewatching your favorite episode of New Girl, rediscover some classics. You want family, comedy, romance, or mystery? No problem. Give these baby-boomer favorites a try. If your grandparents loved them, why shouldn’t you?

The Dick Van Dyke Show


We’re talking a comedy show about a comedy show. What could be better? Join quirky, uncoordinated Rob Petrie–the head writer of The Alan Brady Show–his adorable wife, and his wisecracking best friends. If you want to laugh, smile, sing or dance, this is the show for you.

Get Smart


“Pardon me while I get my shoe phone.”

Maxwell Smart is the worst (and best) CONTROL agent ever. It really depends on how you look at it. For any James Bond fans who enjoy hysterical one-liners even more than epic chase scenes, Get Smart is the go-to show.

I Love Lucy


Lucy Ricardo may be wacky and wild, but in any sticky situation, she’d be great to have around. This hit series has won the hearts of so many–and for a good reason. Basically, if you love screwball and slapstick comedy, you will love I Love Lucy (pun intended).

The Twilight Zone


There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity…This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.”

Do you like having your mind boggled? Do you like feeling a chill run down your spine?  The Twilight Zone is for those of you with a mysterious side. You may not be able to get enough of this classic, yet eerie, show. You’ve been warned. And you may never get the theme music out of your head either. 

Hogan’s Heroes


This comedy follows Col. Hogan, a World War II soldier stuck in a P.O.W camp along with his fellow inmates and pals. Thankfully, this show is nothing like The Great Escape. Stalag 13’s overseer Col. Klink isn’t the brightest, and the possibility of the prisoners escaping is highly probable. Nonetheless, this show is lighthearted, fun and entirely lovable.
