So apparently WGN has a new retro night theme where they are playing tv shows from the 70's and 80's on nights where there isn't a baseball game on. Last week there was a full night of WKRP in Cincinnati and Newhart, and then last night all hell broke loose - they showed two straight hours of ALF.

It seriously might have been 20 years since I last saw Gordon Shumway in all his greatness. I hope they keep this up, I love seeing shows I grew up on instead of continuous Andy Griffith reruns (nothing against the show, but I prefer some variety in my retro tv shows).

I believe there's another ALF night this week, and possibly a Family Ties night.

WKRP? Damn I'm sorry I missed that.

It kinda sucks these days because they lost the rights to all the music they played in the original run. That actually forced them to redub some dialogue, IIRC.

But it will always have:

I wonder if they'll have a Firefly marathon. That would be good. I loaned my dvds to a person who never returned them. I must make a note to myself as a reminder to go shoot that guy in the leg.

Night Court was on there a week or two ago.
