In the 70s and 80s there was a success for TV shows that looked back in time (“House on the Prairie” and “The Waltons”) as well as those that had a futuristic influence. From aliens like Alf and Mork (of “Mork and Mindy”) it seemed that TV shows needed an outsider perspective to be able to question the mores of the time. And the shows reflected more of life’s diversity, there were divorced women (“One Day at a Time”) Hispanic policemen (“CHiPs) and Asian characters (Kung Fu). Plus, TV shows where African Americans had the leads such as “Sanford and Sons,” “The Jeffersons”, and “Good Times”. Do you recall this era of TV? What were your favorite shows?
