    Are you talking about the one with all the girls?

    The girls are a good addition, but the lyrics to the music make it unbearable.

    Great...another thread to remind me how much I hate current TV. Thanks DS.

    TV was an event back then. It was also made to keep families together. I don't know about all of you, but I watched more TV with my parents than I did anything else. Saturdays and Sunday nights were great, with all sorts of shows that made me dread bedtime.

    Now all we get are stupid neon drenched CSI spin-offs, and gagging reality shows.

    Anyone remember the fall season preview shows? Big extravaganzas on the upcoming season. Sneak peaks into dramas, comedies, Family and SATURDAY CARTOONS!!!

    I'm right with you Bro!

    There are maybe two shows on that I would make an effort to watch these days (Hell's Kitchen is one of them). Otherwise if it wasn't for the fact that my wife is addicted to reality shows, I would not watch cable tv at all. I'll take a dvd I've seen a million times any day over the crap they churn out currently.

    The Sunday Night Movie was an event as well. I think my favourite was The Towering Inferno.

    Ahh... the good old days.
