Television of my childhood

I saw a commercial late last night about the Action network showing episodes of the old Irwin Allen series Time Tunnel.

This is another of those series I remember watching with my dad, along with Combat, Bonanza, and The Rifleman (with Chuck Connors, who played baseball for the Dodgers - boo! - but I liked the show anyways).

So the commercial came on, and even though I haven't thought about it in years, memories of the show instantly clicked back into place. Airing in 1966 and only lasting one or two seasons, later shows like Star Trek, Quantum Leap and many others owe thanks to Time Tunnel for inspiration. I'm looking forward to seeing it again.

1 Hmmm, I've never heard of Time Tunnel. I'm still waiting for one of these cable channels to air episodes of Land of the Giants.

2 Bonanza was great. Being from Reno, NV we used to go up to Virginia City and visit the Ponderosa Ranch every now and again. Never did see Time Tunnel though.

3 I was a regular viewer of both Time Tunnel and Land of the Giants. Gosh, I feel old. "Rat Patrol: In Color!"
