Prodigal Son got too bizarro for me.

Any news on the Bone Collector? I know, it's a cop show, but I like it.

Yay for Prodigal Son! I'm sad about Emergence, as well.

Hurray about Stumptown and The Rookie! I've been hoping for those.

I like Stumptown as well. I have a bunch of The Rookie recorded that I haven't got around to watching yet.

First color tv I saw was at my aunt's. She worked for DVD so they had one in the late 50's.

I just remember it would be too green or too red.

Aunt, Uncle and Grandmother were in Indiana, we were in Michigan, so we did not see it much.

We moved to California and still had black & white. Parents got one after I went off to Berkeley, then I got married and we did not get color for years.

I had a color TV before my parents did. My first hubby and I bought a color TV (portable, not a big console) in the late 70s when we first moved in together. He grew up with color, so he wasn't having B&W (thank goodness). My parents didn't get color till sometime later. I never knew as a kid that the beginning of The Wizard of Oz started out in B&W and went to color when Dorothy landed in Oz. I heard someone who'd seen it in the theater as a kid describe how startling and unexpected (in a good way) that was to see! Color wasn't in wide use yet.

we talking TVs? My parents (my mother) was obsessively against TV. We had a TV in Ireland before we moved to this country in 1961, first in our neighborhood to get one. When we moved to the US in 1961 my mother did not want a TV in the house because she thought we would be corrupted by American culture. They finally relented and bought a black and white in 1962 only because I was on a children's tv show and we HAD to watch that. growing up we were only allowed to watch one tv show a week - one they approved of and cartoons were banned. So a color tv was not in the cards. They finally bought a color tv in 1970.

TV was very central to our family life when I was growing up in the 60s and 70s. We only had one TV, so we would all sit together and watch something (like Little House on the Prairie or The Waltons). Usually we'd make a big bowl of popcorn, cause my dad loved it. We watched almost everything together. Now my teenage son doesn't even watch TV. He'd rather be in his room on his computer, playing video games or watching YouTube videos. Different culture. My hubby and I still watch TV together in the evenings. I record all "my" shows (girl stuff, like The Bachelor and soapy things) and watch them in the afternoons, but at night we watch together until bedtime.

Another big difference is that while my parents had only one TV in the house, we have 5: living room, study and all three bedrooms. The one in my mom's old room doesn't get used anymore. We bought it when she moved into assisted living, but she could never figure out how to use the cable, so we brought it home.

We've explained to our DD's what TV was like in the old days (even pre-VCR). If you didn't see a show when it was on, you didn't see it (or if you were lucky you saw it later in the summer re-runs). So being there to watch a show was a big deal and a shared experience.

Now everything is so fragmented, though my youngest DD still watches shows with us in the evening when she is home (which is pretty amazing of her, now that I think about it). :-)

And in the old days, there was an antenna on every rooftop. I'm in a 5 story condo building. Good antenna on the roof. I have TiVo for OTA TV and I stream. Don't have / never have had cable or satellite. Saw the Sopranos on Netflix DVDs.

We had one of the first tvs amongst ur friends on the block. My dad also got home later than most, so fairly often my mom hosted a few kids for Howdy Doody, or something mid oriented. She would let us snack on carrots (until I was busted for hiding mine behind books in the bookcase, that exempted us from a vegetable at dinner.

And indeed, one tv, you watched what was on, be it Ed Sullivan or my dad's favorite, Victory at Sea, since he was in the Navy for WWII.

We got our first TV pretty early in the '50s. My dad was techie for the time. Got our first color TV in '61. That was early for color. First program we watched on it was Victoria Regina with Julie Harris.
