Last month or so been watching the Walton's on a old tv channel, I watched some in highschool, well after school.

It was just on one day and decided to watch, it's pretty good, was born Sept 1977 and it looks like it ran from 1972-1981?

Anyways looking something up about the show, they are making a new Walton's movie, read the original series started as a movie, then became show, probably all new cast but would be nice to have some original people.

I know it's a Ford, but I enjoy seeing John Boy's car.

How many here watched the show?

I watch it sometimes in the afternoon,I think it is on the INSP Network,usually 2 episodes in a row.My Dad really liked the show.There are a lot of old '20s and '30s cars to see.I really like the episodes with Will Geer as the Grandfather,he was a very accomplished actor.

My family watched it back in the day, I wasn’t interested in it back then. I have been watching a lot of the episodes recently.

Love that show. Missed it the first time, but a few years back got hooked and binged the whole series. Good wholesome stuff; a stark contrast to the mean-spirited crap on the teevee these days.

I remember seeing one when I was about 17, one of the kids wants to buy a gas station thinking he will make good money because there is a boom.

The dad explains where there is a boom there is a bust.

Don't remember what happened but hope to see it one day.

Read the actors who played the mom and dad were alcoholics, the guy playing the dad decided to try to be like his character John Walton and quit drinking buy season 2.

I was born in '78. And vaguely remember it being on TV. It probbaly ran over here until I was like 4 or 5 years old.

Is it worth digging out for a bit of nostalgia?

Haha I was born in 1977 so it was before my time also, just remember seeing it after school when I was about 17 or so and it was a pretty good show.

Also at the same time around 17, watched reruns of the incredible hulk, CHIPS, all these were before my time but reruns, old shows but were new to me.

One night I saw Taxi Driver 1976 movie, it just started and it was about 1am, had school the next morning.

Stayed up until past 3am watching it, ran longer because commercials, I knew who Jodie Foster was from other movies but it was my first movie with Robert De Niro.

Kept tv low because I knew I would have to shut it off and go to bed if I got caught, just thought it was some unknown old movie most would have forgotten about but I really liked it.

Later on I found lots of people like it.

2 weeks they are playing it in the theater and going to go see it for first time on big screen.

I remember it was 1994 when I first saw all these old shows and movies.
