    Judging from your posts, as long as economics didn't come up, you and I could probably hang out on a TV night, it seems we enjoy the same shows.

    My wife became a fan of watching the old Match Game show from the 1970s on TV Land in recent years. Which sort of made her a fan of Klugman's wife Brett Sommers.

    Of course, I left out the Odd Couple TV show, which was good, too.

    What I'm picking up on now in some of the older sitcoms, even from the 90s (Seinfeld for instance) where references made are going to get dated and future watchers of reruns on the TV Land of the future will miss certain references and allusions that will leave their appreciation of the show a little shallower than most. I saw the "not that there's anything wrong with it" episode and George says, "Its my own personal Crying Game" and of course he's referring to the movie, but in the future they might not catch that and think its some weird way to say "sad" while Kramer's play mugging of George to show the German tourists on the tour bus a "real NYC mugging" leads to Kramer being cornered on the street by the very same tourists who chase him in a scene reminiscent of the Marathon Man (tough scene to make fun of), a 1970s movie

    I liked Quincy, but still, the fact that Klugman was Oscar Madison, to me, made him less believable as a doctor...but I still liked him....

    My wife and I note some of the same things about younger people. But at the same time, I couldn't figure out what Snooki was for a while, so its all good
