Some Good Old Country
22 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

This show is incredulous.I mean it being premiered in 1957 and all,gee Buddy Holly was still alive,Cuba was not communist,but a free nation,the Dodgers were still in Brooklyn,the baseball Giants still in New York,the Lakers in Minneapolis,and the President Of The United States (Ike) was someone you could believe in. Yes those were good times and this was a good show that had a good run.The Real McCoys had a great cast with Walter Brennan doing his best as the lead as Granpa,and doing well as usual.A young Richard Crenna starting out what would be a fantastic acting career who would have thought of it him being on this show.Madge Blake was on this show,Aunt Harriet from Batman.And a young Kathleen Nolan,yes this was a fine show with some good humor and some good lessons learned about life sprinkled in. You don't get TV like this anymore,of course we don't.Dawson's Creek and other shows like it have meant the end of televison with a sense of humor and with some heart to it.Now shows are filled with self pity,characters that are selfish,and with tons of sarcasm to them.Shows like the new "Get Real and Freeks and Geeks" reflect what we have become to our regret.When people look back at the 1990's they are sure to remember it as an age of anger and disillusionment. We can look back at the 1950's though.Not a perfect age.But a great time for Americans and shows like "The Real McCoys" with a happy and stable family living on a farm enjoying life rather than cursing it,give us an example of who we were.A good show with some good humor, and thanks to TNN now not to be forgotten.
