9780130897398: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Boomer TV

A light-hearted look at everything baby boomers remember or ever wanted to know about TV in the '50s, '60s and '70s.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Boomer TV is a humorous, affectionately nostalgic guide for all those who grew up in the Golden Age of television. If you can whistle the theme song from Green Acres or if you received your first informal history lessons from Time Tunnel, this book is for you. Along with an amusing synopsis and cast listing for the most memorable prime-time series from the ’50s to the ’70s, The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Boomer TV highlights a definitive episode from each of the author’s personal "Fabulous 50." And it’s not just the shows: you get fascinating trivia and sidebars of the best, worst, and most annoying commercials, and information on the products spawned by TV.

PLUS, PLUS, PLUS:

  • The imports we loved, including The Prisoner
  • Rankings of the Top Ten shows of the 1960s and 1970s, in all categories
  • Listings of the worst shows on TV
  • A "Where Are They Now?" sidebar that tracks the fate of long-forgotten stars
  • Little-known facts about such series as Man From U.N.C.L.E.
