Hmm... should I be offended? Are you asking my age... Wink

Anyhow, I'm from Sweden, and when I grew up there wasn't even cable here, so choises was very limited,
to say the least.
Don't know the titles, but mabye you know wich I talk about anyway. And, as I said, choises limited.

Dallas, the little house on the praire, MacChaans, StarTrek. Well, that's about it.

I remember 227. I don\t remember liking it that much, but liking it enough to watch it. It's not something I would watch today though.

They were British TV commedies from the 70's and 80's. If you ever get the chance to see them on satellite - give them a go.

The sitcom that I watched while growing up were 'Home Along d Riles' (Riles means rail road) and 'Okidokidok'. Both are local sitcoms here in The Philippines. I watched both sitcoms for at least 4 years each. The first one lasted longer though.

Here are the overviews for each sitcom:

Home Along d Riles:

Kevin Cosme (the main character, a widower) and his family (his 3 sons and a daughter, and a nephew) live in a small house along the railroad. The story goes as Kevin struggles to support his family's needs - financially and emotionally.

The story also tells how his sister in-law named Ason is constantly trying to seduce him. LOL. The story was funny because on the early days of their lives, Kevin and Ason were lovers. Ason has a twin sister named Sion (if I remember her name correctly). Ason's father was against her relationship with Kevin so they decided to run away. On the night when they suppose to run away, Kevin mistaken Sion to be Ason. After a few years Sion died and Ason helped Kevin took care of his kids. It's nice because they live as neighbors.

Some of the funny parts of the story happened in the office where Kevin worked as a messenger. One of his bosses (the male one, the female one was so nice to Kevin) is always pushing him around and it always ends up the boss hurting himself.


Okidokidok:

This is a story of a veterinarian named Aga (Doc Aga) and his daily life as an animal doctor, a lover of a beautiful girl (with an ugly father), and as a friend to a guy who he doesn't know have a BIG crush on him. LOL.


These are the sitcoms I watched while growing up. I miss these sitcoms.


Cheers!

What ever happened to the good old sitcoms? Even the good old cartoons, for that matter. Everything today is very strange... where went Bugs Bunny and his wit? Not to mention his cross-dressing. But, that's another matter entirely!

My favorite sitcoms were...

Full House
Family Matters
Friends
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Home Improvement
Married with Children

Growing up on the cusp of eighties and nineties England, I was basically forced by my parents to watch things like Blackadder, Rab C Nesbit, The Young Ones, Bottom, Mr Bean, Red Dwarf etc. I suppose i was lucky enough to have parents who liked those kinds of shows. I don't know how many English posters there are around here, but i've always wanted to know if anyone else watched Brittas Empire... when I was a child that was the greatest show I'd ever seen, and is seriously overdue a rerun on TV.
aerick4u
My greatest hit was, and still is, Different Strokes. Wow, those guys could make me laugh all day. Wish my world is half this fun growing up. Always wanted to be like those kids but now i have grown out of that Smile

I liked to watch reruns of the Brady Bunch and Happy Days back when they still aired on Nick@Nite. That programming block stinks nowadays... all the good shows moved to TVLand, and TVLand never shows them...
lethaltriad
I used to watch so many, here is a few that I can remember off hand

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air - Still watch the reruns on nick at night
Saved By The Bell
Family Matters
Married with Children
Friends
Night Court
Benny Hill Show
Are You Being Served?
roninmedia
Saved by the Bell
Step by Step - Just an updated, rehashed Brady Bunch which I've barely watched.
Full House - How did Bob Saget ever fit into that squeaky clean image of this and America's Funniest Home Videos?
Family Matters - Still watch re-runs sometimes.
The Simpsons - Still going strong after so many seasons. And I still like it over the newer raunchy cartoons like Family Guy, South Park, and Futurama
I Love Lucy - I watched it on Nick at Nite
Radar
Maybe taking 'growing up' loosely - M*A*S*H and Home Improvement.
