TrekMedic's 2016 Retro Viewing Diary

TV Show list created by TrekMedic Avatar

Sort by: Showing 10 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
People who added this item 656 Average listal rating (496 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.5
Batman (1966)
Status: as of 20 February, Holy Technicolor Tomfoolery, Batman! It's the semicentennial of that seminal Sixties series of silliness!!









TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 139 Average listal rating (104 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.3
Hawaii Five-O (1968)
Status: As of October, 2017, I started watching this from S1E01 "Cocoon." Interesting to see someone else playing Danno in the two-part pilot!
Update: As of May, 2018, all episodes up to Season 6 were aired, then cycled back to Season 1 (this may be the extent of what MeTV owns the rights). Currently off-air for "The Summer of Me" schedule.




TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 94 Average listal rating (71 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.1
Status: as of 30 May, I started recording Season 1 a few weeks ago, but time restrictions prevented me from watching. Resting today after a murderously-long weekend of weather-related calls and prepping for my youngest's high school graduation, I just binged watched Season 1. Nostalgic connection: Season 1 aired during MY senior year in high school!


TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 19 Average listal rating (16 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 7.8
Status: as of 22 February, the first season is just winding down. Amusing watching Robert Wagner wearing Nehru jackets and chains, and giving off a quintessentially late-60s mod vibe. Groovy, baby!


Status: As of 30 May, COZI dropped it from their listings right in the middle of Season 1!


TrekMedic's rating:
Status: as of 20 January, the final season is airing. I missed the first two seasons, so I'm hoping the series loops back to the first year in the next few weeks


Status: as of 9 February, the series did loop back to season 1 and boy, what a difference! Mannix working for Joseph Campanella (Wickersham, the head of Intertect Investigations - a state-of-the-art detective company) makes for a totally different kind of show!

TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 25 Average listal rating (23 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 6.5
Status: as of 20 January, this just popped up on my radar (I did a search while making the Angie Dickinson's Hot 100 list). The third season is currently airing so, like Mannix, I'm hoping the show loops back to the beginning. Also, it only airs on the weekends, so this could take awhile!


Follow-Up: this show, and a few others, are showing up on "binge weekends" on the Decades channel, so I'm catching up in bunches.



TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 191 Average listal rating (146 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.2
The Avengers (1961)
Status: as of 20 January, the sixth, and final, season just completed and is looping back to the bits and pieces of the first two series. My DVR has some issues with scheduling conflicts and, since I work odd hours at the fire department, I don't always get a chance to correct them. For now, I'll record and watch the episodes I keeping missing and hope the channel keeps airing the series





TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 95 Average listal rating (70 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.7
Status: as of 20 January, the fourth and final series just started with "The Summit Five" episode yesterday. If it loops back to season 1, I'll keep it on my DVR schedule


Status: as of 30 May, the series is just winding down the black-and-white first season. It makes for an interesting "what if" conversation, had the show not gone down the same hippy-dippy, technicolor path that brought down Star Trek and, despite it's intentional whimsy, Batman!

TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 118 Average listal rating (89 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 8.1
Status: as of January 20th, the fifth season just started today.Even though the sixth and final season was truncated at 12 episodes, the once-daily airings will keep me entertained for awhile.


TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 72 Average listal rating (58 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8.1
Status: as of 20 January, I found this while working on a list similar to my The Trek From U.N.C.L.E. list. The fourth and final season is currently airing, but only on Sundays. Again, hoping this will loop back to season 1 at some point this year.


2017 follow-up: still working my way through the entire series, one week at a time!


2018 follow-up: I've seen all of the episodes and have removed the show from my schedule


TrekMedic's rating:

In the United States, "classic" or "retro" television channels are popping up all over cable and digital TV. As a child of the 60s and 70s, I'm in heaven!
