Perry Mason is also rerun on MeTV everyday.



Never saw an episode. But a Phoenix roommate was an attorney so naturally he liked it. Here is careful viewing. He pointed out the the judge in the episode he was watching was female and how insane that would have seemed in the 1950s. It was one of those things you had to really notice.

i didn't watch it often.

That is the trouble with these packaged shows, some provider packages ancient garbage and then advertises its varied offerings, much of which old garbage, re-runs or "inspirational" crap. You tube is full of HallMark movies of wholesome family entertainment.

Ahh, Raymond Burr. Him and Rock Hudson
were a hot item in Hwood for about 6 months
in the early 50's when they were still young
and purty.. Throw Randolf Scott into that
mix and you have a cover story..

Now would be a good time to have a few more drive-in theaters left.

But as far as it goes, I can't think of much else from the past that would be more useful today.

Although I could read a lot, it's hard to imagine being locked down with only 4 or 5 TV channels, and no internet. I'd probably listen to a little more radio, but that wouldn't go too far either.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Good point. I have heard milk delivery is making a comeback?

Other things from the past that would be bad during cv19:
Arcades
Phonebooths
Blockbuster Video
Fondue/Tupperware parties

Books
Jigsaw puzzles
Card games
Board games
Sewing
Knitting
Cooking
Singing/piano/guitar

That's how we occupied ourselves during a week or so snow-in back in my childhood. Not much electronic/tv/etc, but usually a radio on in the background.

Much better times than this past couple of months. A few times, we invited another family to get snowed in with us on purpose. The requirement was that both adults/parents played Bridge. Lol...

I definitely was trying to watch the scrambled porn late at night when I was a kid.
