70's tv shows and movies. WTF!! As bad as they may be and however predictable the stories are, i'm addicted. Bring on 'the jeffersons, archie bunker, mtm, i'll watch it all, and i'm only in my 30's. What gives?

It's OK to watch those shows, but if you start DRESSING like them or wearing your HAIR like're in BIG TROUBLE.

It looks like you have a "Guilty Pleasure". Nothing wrong with that. I'll take any '70s Show and/or Movie over the POS they try to pass off as "Entertainment" these days!

I wouldn't call MTM or All in the Family guilty pleasures. Those are both great shows.

Writing on TV has obviously changed quite a bit over the years. You obviously enjoy the writing style which was prevalent during the 70's. I personally can't stand the writing style of much of the 80's- the Cosby Show/Family Ties, etc... However, I enjoy the 70's stuff and like the 90's stuff too. Just a matter of taste.

I'm stuck in the 80s but I love shows from the 70s. Star Wars, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Sanford and Son, The Incredible Hulk, Battlestar Galactica, Threes Company, all good stuff. Then came the 80s with The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, The Indiana Jones trilogy, ET, The Back to the Future trilogy, The Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, The A-Team, The Greatest American Hero, I can go on a lot longer but I don't have time. They just don't make shows this good anymore.

Jermaine Clark says: you don't see...good shows like these...on television today...thank God for dvds!

I came realize this 14 months ago when I decided to cancel my cable subscription. The shows that we listed are the shows I want to watch. I now spend my money on DVDs of these shows. 90% of my DVD collection is stuff from the 60s thru the 80s.

I just tallied all the TV Shows I have on DVD and here's the List in Decades

1. 1960s
2. 1970s
3. 1980s
4. 1990s
5. 1950s
6. 2000s

1960s and 1970s account for nearly half of the Series I own on DVD.

All in the Family and The Mary Tyler Moore Show are two of the best written/acted sitcoms made. I would never use the words bad or predictable about them, but that's just me. Even a mediocre episode from these two series beats anything from TV in the last couple of decades.

I discovered these shows in reruns when I was a pre-teen in the late 70's and early 1980's. All in the Family always seemed like I was watching a really exciting and hilarious play; you were either laughing your butt off or you were deeply touched or shocked. And the MTM Show had such a great ensemble of actors, and I soon grew to find anchorman Ted Baxter one of the best characters on TV. The episode where he goes to a writing class with Mary and steals her ideas is a gem.

These shows don't fade with age, they still are funny. Being stuck in the 70's is a good place to be.

Neither, thanks, or any other tiresome, boring cliches. Just the freedom, youth and sense of optimism I had then. That and TV shows like M*A*S*H that said something and didn't insult my intelligence. And, OK, maybe that digital watch that lit up when I pressed the button.

I cover most shows that are of the horror fantasy and scifi genre. I own shows from the 50s thru now. So I guess I have a good cross section in decades just stuck in
