What I wasn’t watching 1983-1984

There was absolutely no change in the shows I watched from the 82-83 season to the 83-84 season. So, instead of finally just putting this series of posts to rest, here are the shows that I was least likely to watch. And here is the complete prime time schedule for 1983-1984 so that you can play along at home.

7:00 7:30 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30
S Archie Bunker’s Place Gloria ABC Sunday Night Movie
M Square Pegs Private Benjamin N.F.L Monday Night Football
T Father Murphy Gavilan Hart to Hart
W Tales of the Gold Monkey Alice Filthy Rich Tucker’s Witch
R Joanie Loves Chachi Star of the Family Too Close for Comfort It Takes Two Knot’s Landing
F The Power of Matthew Star Dallas The Quest
S T.J. Hooker Gimme a Break! Love Sidney The Devlin Connection

Notes:

  • There are so many of these that I have absolutely no memory of.
  • I actually don’t dislike these; they just lose in their time-slot
    • Hart to Hart
    • Alice
    • Too Close for Comfort
  • I actually ended up watching Joanie Loves Chachi fairly often because my sister, who normally has pretty good taste, really liked it.

    I at least recognize most of them, though I have no memory of the show you feature in the banner picture. I do remember that my mom liked Hart to Hart and that the family watched it together.

    Ha! I also did not watch these shows. I tried to like Joanie Loves Chachi, but it didn’t happen.

    I watched several of your not watched shows. I too liked Hart to Hart and always watched it. My mom used to call it the ‘daahling’ show, because the Harts were always calling each other ‘daahling’.

    I also like Joanie Loves Chachi & Love Sidney.

    You might be noticing the absence of a new post today. I have a headache, so today is a day off. Peace out.

His poor heart.

I am sure I am late in the game on this, but this is downright adorable. I saw parts of it on Stephen Colbert, but it is worth watching the whole two minutes. The cuteness – it overwhelms me!

War on lunchrooms

A brief history search tells me that this is my fifth post about oranges, but this will be the one that matters. If I could say anything to the various people who cut oranges for others to eat, it would be: No more pole-to-pole cutting! You know what I mean – where you cut an […]

By using them

Cobbler – not the kind you eat

On Sunday Lloyd looked dapper and fine for church – dress pants, suit coat, a spring in his step – very fine, indeed. Then we went to WalMart. He got out of the car, set his foot down, and the sole of his shoe fell nearly all the way off. He shuffled. Shuffled like an […]

Get out the vote! Get out the vote!

The elections are coming up, and if you’re unsure of who to vote for, vote for Beth! Somebody at Concordia (at least we’re assuming Concordia) has a lot of time, money, and funny on their hands. A couple of weeks ago Beth called to tell us to swing by Concordia’s football field because there was […]
