Classic 1970s TV: The shows that made the family tune in

Classic 1970s TV: The shows that made the family tune in

Imagine a family, all sitting around the TV, possibly the only TV in the house. Dad is holding the remote control, which everyone refers to as “the clicker.” The remote has only two functions.Visit here:http://www.worldwidewriter.com//article-display.php?articleid=3642

One of the functions turns the TV off and on. The other changes the channels, all 7 or 8 of them, with a click of a button. Now try to imagine what that family is watching. Are you imagining them watching one of the classic TV shows from the 1970′s?

In the 1970s most families had one, maybe two televisions in the house, and the second television was usually stashed away in mom and dad’s room where they could watch the classic shows that the kids couldn’t watch yet like Maude or Soap. The televisions in the house might have even shown the programs in black and white.

What kept families glued to these televisions that had only a handful of channels, an ancient clicker, and frequently no color? The classic TV shows from the 1970s, of course. There were so many family-friendly shows in a variety of genres.

For families that enjoyed comedies, the 1970s had some of the most memorable sitcoms. The families in the ‘70′s learned all about families in the 1950′s by watching the wildly popular Happy Days and its equally popular spin off Laverne and Shirley. Happy Days also launched the career of comedian Robin Williams who went on to star in another spin off of the show – Mork and Mindy.

Other family friendly classic television shows of the 1970′s include The Partridge Family (with teen hearth throb David Cassidy), the show that introduced us to John Travolta, Welcome Back Kotter, One Day at a Time, Chico and the Man, The Odd Couple, Good Times, WKRP in Cincinnati, What’s Happening, Three’s Company and The Jeffersons.

Families with older children enjoyed comedies with a social conscience like All in the Family, Maude, Barney Miller or Mash. These classic 1970s sitcoms dealt with the social issues of the day in poignant yet comedic way.

Families also had several variety shows to choose from for their viewing pleasure. Classic variety shows such as The Donny and Marie Show and The Sonny and Cher Show had music, comedy sketches and popular guest stars each week.

The Carol Burnett Show brought together some of the 1970′s funniest comedians each week and The Muppet Show combined the genius of Jim Henson’s fantastic creations with musical and comedy guest stars sharing the stage with Kermit, Miss Piggy and Animal.

There were plenty of one hour family dramas, too. Eight is Enough, Little House on the Prairie, and The Waltons were just a few of the classic television dramas that brought families together in front of the television each week.

There was also room for crime fighting and action heroes in the classic 1970s TV shows. The world learned what bionics was in The Six Million Dollar Man and its spin off The Bionic Woman. Each week families would tune in to see how Lee Majors and Jamie Sommers would use their bionic eyes and ears.

CHiPs gave us a glimpse into the life of California Highway Patrol officers. Starsky and Hutch chased bad buys in their hot rod and BJ and the Bear tracked down bad guys in an 18 wheeler.

Two other classic television shows from that era that can’t be defined by any of these other genres were The Love Boat and Fantasy Island. These shows were the place for the stars of yesteryear and the stars of the current era to make guest appearances, several at a time.

For years, families stayed home on Saturday nights just to see who would get off the plane onto the island or turn up Julie the Cruise Director’s guest list.
In today’s modern times, there are hundreds of channels on each of the four or more TV sets in most homes.

Yet, there seems to never be anything to watch, especially something that the whole family can enjoy together. Many of these classic TV shows from the 1970′s are now on DVD and can be bought or rented either online or at a store. Why not consider getting a classic TV DVD for your family this Friday night instead of the usually family movie?

There is Something Worse than American Soap Operas

There is Something Worse than American Soap Operas

Before we go on any further, it should be made clear that this article is a critique of art, and is not intended to be a tool for racial profiling or discrimination. Instead, this article wishes to point out places where a particular type of art can best be improved. With that said, here we go.

Let’s first discuss the primary characteristics of American Soap Operas:

 

Unrealistic romantic conversations – when partners are in an argument or in an unhappy conversation, one of them turns around, looks in front of the camera, and speaks his or her heart out. Meanwhile, the other one is left at the foreground, staring at the back of the former. Nothing like this happens in real life.

Set usually look like scraps of paper – because American soap operas air in daytime, ad revenues are much lower, so that they work with smaller budgets. That explains it.

A show’s story winds up ad infinitum – storylines of American Soap Operas can usually span years, as they are usually open-ended and can easily be appended or revised. Just look at Days of our Lives. The viewing public may even come to a point where they start to doubt the wisdom behind inventing of the TV to begin with.

However, there’s something worse: Philippine Soap Operas.

Philippine soap operas can be considered as one of the most “improvable” soap operas out there. These shows have adopted elements which are almost identical to American soap operas but with some extreme modifications and additions.

 

Utterly ridiculous endings – the typical Philippine Soap opera takes much effort to develop the story line, which can take years. However, as soon as the ratings drop, they simply kill each other off in a span of 5 episodes or one airing week. Example: Mula sa Puso (From the Heart) and Mara Clara.

Ridiculous costumes – the set design is very limited just like American soaps. However, the costumes and prosthetics are very unrealistic too. In the series entitled Familia Zaragoza, there was a lead character who had a half-burnt face who used nothing but coagulated press powder to look like she was burnt.

Out-of-this-word and oft-unoriginal storylines – most plots are ripped off from foreign-made films and TV shows. For example, Pintados (Tatooeds) has a plot that is too similar to the X-men. Encantadia, has one that is similar to Lord of the Rings. The list goes on and on.

This is the typical kind of Philippine soap opera, and it makes up more than 80 percent of what is shown there. While there are many exceptions, this is usually the case.

Sammi does not watch a whole lot of television. Instead she prefers to work in her yard and garden. She uses a yard sweeper to pick up her leaves and diatomaceous earth as an all natural pesticide!
