Old Gold?
« on: August 01, 2020, 07:42:10 AM »
Just wondering if others have found any good old shows on YouTube or elsewhere since not much new is hitting the dvrs. Recently started watching Have Gun - Will Travel on YouTube which has all of the old episodes in chronological order with good quality, although stretched to 16x9 format. I like Richard Boone as Paladin, and the stories are pretty good. The Chinese fast trotting Hey Boy porter would not be terribly pc right now, but the Indians are portrayed in a better light. The women are frequently portrayed as very strong and self reliant, more than their male counter parts at times. There is also a good episode titled Genesis that relays how the character evolved. I was surprised to see Gene Roddenberry wrote one amusing episode where Paladin employed a camel to win a desert race. When I was little I was a bit intimidated by the dressed in black Paladin character and would never watch. Glad I found this. We also watch a lot of What's My Line and Concentration. The panel of WML was very classy and is a joy to watch, great nostalgia. Concentration is great fun, trying to figure out the cryptic puzzle before it is revealed. These are my current YouTube favs, anybody have any other oldies?
