A fun topic to start with.  Break the ice.

What was your favorite show growing up?  Do you think it shaped you in anyway?  Good, bad, indifferent?

Maybe you had multiple favorites and can't decide on just one?  That's ok...let's just talk about the good 'ol days!

I'll start:

M.A.S.H. - Watched reruns with my parents.  Hawkeye Pierce (Alan Alda).  What a witty, brilliant man.

Alf - Who doesn't want a furry, cat eating alien living with them?

Wings - Basic sitcom

Quantum Leap - Deep thoughts.  Time travel HAS to be real!

Any thoughts on any of those shows?

Growing up we were only allowed to watch PBS and Saturday Morning Cartoons (occasionally I would conveniently play by the TV while my mom watched "Days of our Lives", but really,  I lived for Saturday Morning Cartoons. I loved Saved By the Bell, The Flintstones, Scobby Doo and Reading Rainbow! 

I too enjoyed M.A.S.H. reruns, Corporal Maxwell Q. Klinger kept things entertaining! 🙂 

The fact that we were limited in the time we were allowed to watch T.V. shaped me more than the shows themselves. I read many books and still enjoy reading just as much as watching my favorite shows!
