Reruns could also be distinctive to Gen X.

The perfect exhibits as soon as aired throughout “Sweeps Week” within the Fall and Spring to measure rankings. If you happen to missed a selected episode you’d watch for the reruns airing in the summertime.

This was earlier than VCR and TiVo expertise modified our viewing habits. Now, you’ll be able to document exhibits you may need missed and watch (or stream) them later.

Perhaps it’s the final word signal of high quality to look at a present greater than as soon as given at present’s overwhelming quantity of leisure.

Right here’s my checklist of exhibits I’ve watched once more (and typically once more), minus “The Addams Family,” “The Andy Griffith Show,” “I Love Lucy,” “The Jeffersons,” “Sanford and Son,” “Bewitched,” “Barney Miller,” “Taxi” and all the opposite after-school exhibits from my youth.

Oddly, nice exhibits like Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and HBO’s “Succession” I’ve solely watched as soon as. Perhaps some exhibits, as soon as the “surprise” is gone, lose their worth?

Arduous to say. What about you?
