The Sad Truth: Classic Television Shows Aren't as Good as You Remember Them - Page 2
It wasn’t just the 80’s and 90’s that gave us shows that were wildly popular at the time and then showed their true colours in syndication. ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ and ‘Bewitched’ are essentially the same show. One quirky wife is a genie and the other is a witch. Somehow they both seemed to find the same chauvinist husband. As dreamy as American hero, astronaut Major Nelson was, we would rather not have a husband who shoves us in a bottle and hides us in a closet anytime company arrives. Samantha’s husband Darren treated her like a dog that wouldn’t stop peeing on the carpet any time she used her witchy powers to cook him dinner.
Sadly, it’s only a matter of time that we look back on shows that we currently love and realize just how ridiculous they truly are. Damn you T.V. on DVD box sets!
