    I would rather a show die in glory than sink to a series of crap.

    Nah like me he was probably only 2-3 years old when that happened. It was already in daily reruns in my earliest memories of TV.

    I must have watched reruns when I was a kid because I remember the show. The movie Pretty Woman immortalized the grape stomping scene from one of the shows.

    Such a good show. We need more channels that play the greats. Lucy, Happy Days... and such.
