One of my favorite shows as a child
18 November 2004 | by (Metairie, La) – See all my reviews

I have many fond memories of watching G S Theater on Sunday nights as a child, such fine dramas. I particularly remember episodes about Caesar and Cleopatra and David and Goliath. Also a murder mystery called A Little White Lie.

What made the show more interesting was that my father worked at the Louisville, Kentucy General Electric plant.

Where IV dramas really so much better then. I think part of it is that things seen when a child just seem so much better to a child. Anyway I see very little of such quality on TV today, at least on a regular basis.

Why doesn't a cable channel run some of these fine drama series instead of all of the comedies and westerns.
