An interesting look back into TVs history

(3 out of 5 stars)
"Over 18 hours on 5 DVDs -- 1-2 episodes each of Lassie, The Life of Riley, You Bet Your Life, I Married Joan, Combat, Sea Hunt, Mannix, Burke's Law, Dragnet, Wagon Train, Mr. Ed, Fury, The Cisco Kid, Peter Gunn, The Danny Thomas Show, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Medic, Checkmate, Petticoat Junction, Adventures of Robin Hood, Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Sky King and Racket Squad.
Quality varies, but that's part of the nostalgia! It's amazing that television actually caught on considering how truly AWFUL some of these shows were! But if you're "of an age" to remember them, you'll get a kick out of the trip down memory lane, and you'll probably appreciate today's television more (as bad as it usually is!).
In a few of the episodes, the commercials are shown as well and they're almost as entertaining as the shows!
