I miss Grizzly Adams. Men like him, Pa, and Mr Edwards (from little house on the prairie) were who I looked up to as a child. Well before I found that reading was cool. What TV icon do you miss from your early years and did they ever help you in your quest to become a man?
Truly TV has gone down hill, Most all of the new programs I would not soil my screen, Virtual Peeking tom TV.I don't want to know how to make a fool of my self on TV. It seem that no one has any pride anymore...Books I don't see anything worth reading much past the 1950s altho Joel Olsteens books are fabulous. As a whole there is no self help programs or books to help you become a better person...I like the Duke...When I quit my Job and moved down here( one of the best things I ever did) I was Scarred ....Courage is being scarred to death and saddleing up any way...John Wayne...that helped me so much....Come back Cowboy bob and Hopalong Cassity ...WE NEED YOU......Dan
Seeing a thread about Captain Kirk reminded me that he was an influence for me. So was Professor John Robinson of Lost in Space (and earlier, Guy Williams was a marvelous Zorro as well). Those influences are vague, however. I simply remember how he seemed strong and self-assured.
A boy can't go wrong with the influence of the Cartwrights, though! Good cowboy values of integrity, honesty, fairness, hard work...
Indeed so! Although it seems to have tapered off somewhat, you still see the "dumb dad" in commercials. Double standard; you cannot pull that nonsense on women without getting the Policially Correct police on your tail.
Don't forget Simon and Simon, Remington Steele, and B.A Baracus from the A-Team...funny thing about the A-Team I always thought that the A-Team seemed like one man in several different men. I mean it seemed like they took one complete man and seperated all of his different aspects and personalities into different people.
