COLOMBO (too bad the real U.S. name: “COLUMBO”)
STARSKY & HUTCH
BARETTA (Keep your eyes on the sparrow! :D)
STAR TREK (I guess it’s the only “space film” I watched when I was a kid and I don’t even know why!? 'cause basically I can’t stand them )
and so on…
I can not start telling you about series of the 70’s or 60’s because I KNOW TOO MANY of them (even some of the 50’s), but today I would not like to watch them in general unles to have fun out (mock) of them.
I have to confess you that I’m not too much into those series you mentioned (especially A-Team, Mac Gyver…).
Back to Columbo, I used to love him when I was a kid (started coming out at the end of the 60’s), but for me, today, the stories are a little kind of unsatisfiying at the end, 'though they are always nice for watching along with grandmothers, parents or kids, and Peter Falk is magnificent as Columbo, I think it’s on a higer level than most crimi series from that time.
The original Star Treck was something beyond the mascarade that their follow ups became, and as kid I loved it. Like most of the stuff in the 60’s it was very much into some moral teaching or conclusion which many series lack today, that was the trend back then.
I never seen TJ HOOKER.
One serie that probably is the greatest to find a double meaning to all in it is [b]“Bat-Man” /b, I really recommend it if you are into it. There are all kinds of “messages” behind the actual story.
Oh, by the way, I think “Get Smart” is some of the best done then (60’s), stands perfectly the test of time.
Hi,Straniero.These series are recently aired on the satellite channel Jimmy(specialized in tv series), on the Murdoch’s platform Sky, in Italy.I watched The Twilight Zone on dvd too because it was edited in 2006 in Italy(a splendid dvd edition with a lot of interesting bonus contents).
