Oh yeah, I remember watching it as a mere lad in the 60s. Not my favorite TV show at the time, but definitely worth a watch every week. They pulled the plug on it after only two seasons.

McHales Navy

The cisco Kid

The Lone Ranger

Rawhide

I dream of Jeanie

Gilligans Island

And of course a bit later MASH...

And NUMEROUS more (memory is struggling) were staple watching in the UK in my early teens.

Rush home from school, turn on black and white TV (only had two channels) , wait forever for the valves to warm up. Huddle around the fire.

Those were the days.

It might??.. surprise some if our US/Canadian members how popular US TV shows were in the UK in those days. And we loved them,

Absolutely,

Thanks for reminding me. Wells Fargo.... Also

Cowboy movies were everywhere.

I always loved the background scenery, not sure if it was studio or real. You know the background,, the massive pillars of rock in the desert.

Utah,,, maybe

When you're brought up struggling in the backstreets of London that vision is a world away. Although i did managed to migrate to Australia.. (thanks to Aussie Pete and others paying my fare,) hehe...

Sure do remember the Rat Patrol although vague. Those two jeeps were cool.

Was more into science fiction shows like the Time Tunnel, only lasting one season unfortunately

Downloaded the whole series a while back.  There were about 25 episodes.  Each episode ended by showing the first few minutes of the next episode.  Then the next episode replayed that and went on.  When it was canceled and went into syndication, they cut off the preview on the end of the last episode and added a few minutes of the pilot so the whole series looped forever.  The pilot actually started with a lot of the background of the gov't project with a senator threatening to shut the project down because they hadn't shown it actually worked.  Toni was incensed at this and took off through the tunnel on his own.  Then Doug went after him and they both ended up on the Titanic.  Most people only saw the Titanic part after that.

Another I remember seeing a lot around then was Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.  And don't forget Hogan's Heroes which I was told was quite popular in Germany.
