    I do, but that would require a modicum of effort on my part. So much EASIER to just switch the channel.

    My step dad had a remote in 1957! Back then the remote had to not only switch the channels, he had to run outside and turn the antenna pole for better reception!

    I was also an antennae for awhile. Standing next to the TV holding the rabbit ears that had boosting aluminum wrapped around them and adjusting them until the signal from Memphis came in just a bit better...

    They used to say 'the only sure thing was death, taxes and nurses'.
    In the UK at least, ad to that you can always find an episode of NCIS and Law And Order.
    This afternoon, there's at least three channels showing episodes from different series of NCIS, not including LA and NO, from 11am to 9pm one channel has five episodes of Law And Order followed by five NCIS, then SVU until 1.45 tomorrow morning. When you include the spinoffs, there's probably been an episode of one or the other broadcast everyday over the last ten years.

    You simply can't have too much law and order.

    Television was just different back then. We got our first color tv in time to watch Elvis's Christmas special in 1968. We lived right almost midway between Bakersfield and Fresno California at the time. Both had three powerful tv stations and Fresno had a couple of weaker stations. We were in hog heaven. I rigged an antenna that had shields on the back to keep the different cities stations from interfering with each other and pointed one each of the antennas at the two different cities. We were in hog heaven! I'm not sure I've ever experienced a finer tv experience than that of watching Elvis for Christmas with my young wife, and our little boy, a few years before his sister was delivered by the stork!

    Is that the American L&O? How popular was the British version?
