One of my very first TV memories...
3 July 2005 | by kmac44mvSee all my reviews

..along with "Winkie Dink" and "Sky King"...and "Flash Gordon". I'm so glad to see other people here who also remember "Boston Blackie" I must have been around 5 or 6 years old when I watched these first early shows. I also remember " I Married Joan" ( Joan Davis was absolutely just as hilarious as Lucy but didn't get the same recognition) and " I Remember Mama"....there was an intro each week that ended with the words "...but most of all, I remember Mama.."( it almost brings a tear to my eye) I would just LOVE to be able to see some of these shows again. I have just ordered a couple of box sets of "I Married Joan" and a lot of other classic TV shows. Anyone remember "Life With Elizabeth"?
