Laverne and Shirley
Last night, the kids, my wife and I finished watching the entire run of Laverne & Shirley.
Several months ago, it started airing about four times a week on the Hub network. So we decided to watch every episode with the kids, since we loved it when we were young and wanted them to enjoy it, as well.
Happily, the kids loved it, too. And because we had missed the first few episodes, we got to finish watching the series with classic episodes from the first season, back in 1976. They were just as funny as ever, and a much better way to end a viewing of the series than the 8th season, which wasn't great. Uneven and chaotic sums it up, diplomatically.
I am glad we shared this with them. A bit of television history, some great characters and laughs and a much better way to spend some TV time than watching any of the 'reality' shows out there.
Posted below is the 20th Anniversary Reunion of the cast that aired on ABC in 1995.
Great to see the cast together and remembering good times. Even Fonzie shows up!
We have watched the entire run of Laverne & Shirley and also I Love Lucy with the kids.
We are thinking The Dick Van Dyke Show might be next up!
Laverne & Shirley is currently airing on the Hub network at 11:00pm EST,
