They're all really really old.
Unless some of those shows are so new I haven't heard of them, about %20 are so old I haven't heard of them.
I live in a country with two channels and no reruns while I was growing up, so everything except Fawlty Towers and M*A*S*H* only aired once, and if you missed something, go fuck yourself.
Seriously, if something old was magically rerun, it was at a difficult time of day and a sheer treat.
Things have improved.
We have maybe 5 "real" channels now and an inexpensive Cable option that is nothing but 90 channels of rerun crap and reality asshattednes in syndication.
I'd like to give a shout out to two Britcoms that are so funny and no one talks about here...
Ironically one has the mother from one of the kids form the Sarah Jane Adventures and the other has the tv-dad of the same kid.
Life after science fiction.
Yeah, Black Adder
is old too. The first series came out in 1983 and the last one in 1989. Hyfen_Underskor
didn't mention age in his post. So what's your point? That you missed out on some American TV shows?
The boring one, the one with Khan, the one where Spock returns, the one with whales, the dumb one, the last one, the one with Kirk, the one with the Borg, the stupid one, the bad one, the new one, the other one with Khan.
