TV Classics From The 70s and 80s

This is a fun post, I enjoyed putting it together and thinking about it. I am a big time fan of TV shows from the 70s and 80s. That era on TV just appeals to me. Television shows were so much simpler and fun – at least that’s what I think.

I enjoy looking back and especially seeing the bigger cars, unusual fashion, and it seemed that all my favourite shows, at least, all took place in California – which is a bonus. If you have some leisure time tonight, why not check them out on Netflix if available or your preferred streaming service.
