Lost Television Gems on Decades This Month

Digital specialty network Decades is airing “lost television gems” each weekday this month. The two-hour programming block runs from 3-5PM ET and repeats from 2-4AM ET. Some of the TV shows already seen include The Great Gildersleeve, Medic, Accidental Family, and Your Show of Shows. Later this month, Decades will broadcast episodes of Brenner, Gang Busters, One Happy Family, and Mack and Myer for Hire, plus many other shows.

Check to see if there’s an affiliate in your area at the official Decades website. It’s one of several classic TV diginets I don’t have access to (others include MeTV and getTV).

  • David says:

    Yes, I get Decades, and really like it. I have recorded and watched episodes of “I Married Joan,” “My Little Margie,” and “Life with Elizabeth.” I have recorded episodes of “Private Secretary” and “Beulah,” but have not yet watched them.

  • Jon says:

    I wish I could get Decades, but I don’t have it on cable, and I can’t pick it up on my digital antenna. I did get to see LIFE WITH ELIZABETH when I had an oil change back last October, and it took just enough time for me to see 1 of that episode’s 2 or 3 segments. I think this plot had Elizabeth taking music lessons and causing her husband to be jealous of her music teacher. It was fun to see the show again. I’d love to see an episode or 2 of ONE HAPPY FAMILY, but I’ll probably miss that marathon next Monday.
