In which I try to be a television critic, and to give my personal view of the medium. As the man said, I don't know anything about art but I know what I like.

For those of you with access to KTLA on your TVs (over the air or through cable or satellite) be aware that in celebration of 60 years on the air KTLA will be offering a 60 Hour Marathon of shows from the '50s through the '80s. Starting tonight (Friday) at 10 p.m. PST. Among the shows:
The Jack Benny Program
Highway Patrol (with Broderick Crawford)
Please Don't Eat The Daisies
Time For Beanie
There are some interesting juxtapositions - Highway Patrol is followed by CHIPS, F-Troop by Mayberry RFD. The only thing missing is The Adventures of Champion The Wonder Horse, a show produced by long time KTLA owner Gene Autry. There's also "Current and Retro News" broadcasts.
Information about the KTLA Anniversary Marathon can be foundhere.
