Those Were The Days

By Those Were The Days

Stephen, Amy, Audie, and Travis revisit episodes of classic TV while trying to understand if the good ol' days were as good as we all remember. Each week they pick an episode of TV from the black and white era, up to more recent "classics" and chat about what they saw in it. Join them each week for a new show and join the conversation by emailing in your own thoughts!

The Twilight Zone - S2E11

You're entering... The Twilight Zone, with your friends from Those Were The Days! We took on an episode of Twilight Zone that certainly sticks with the vibe of the show, but may just surprise you in how it all plays out. We hope you dig this episode as much as we did!

Next week, we're starting back on our listener chosen themes like we did before the holidays. This next theme is: COOKING SHOWS! Can't wait to see what the crew picks this time.

First up is Travis! BUT he doesn't have his episode picked. Keep this podcast in your feed and we'll update you next week on what to watch.

Speaking of next week, we're all taking a Christmas break, so there won't be an episode. We'll be putting out a re-run for you and we hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for the wonderful year, everyone! Enjoy the holidays!

The Golden Girls - S4E20

The Golden Girls is nothing short of legendary. The writing, the characters, the situations. It's all written and performed with the best of comedic timing and precision. Amy couldn't have picked a better episode to close out our Drugs theme. 

Not only did we chat about Golden Girls, but we announced our next topic. You voted, and we heard you. The next four episodes will be focused on Spin Offs! Those shows that came from other shows. 

Next week, Travis is getting dangerous with Darkwing Duck! Be sure to check out Season 1, Episode 14 before next week.

Taxi - S3E8

Taxi - S3E8

If you expect to learn a valuable drug lesson from 1981 television, you may have come to the wrong place! This week we took a look at classic sitcom, Taxi! Latka bakes some of his grandmother's cookies and they may contain an ingredient that no on expected.

We had such a good time talking about this show. It's truly remarkable how dense with comedy this episode is and it really showed how the actors and writers pair together to make something that could be just "kinda funny" absolutely uproarious. 

We hope you enjoy it! 

In the meantime, our new poll is up to pick the next theme for the show, so swing over to @thosedaysshow on twitter and vote! Or just send us an email to telling us which of these you want to see us cover: Power Couples, Politics, Cooking Shows, or Spin Offs!

Next week, Amy is ready to thank you for being a friend as we watch The Golden Girls! Season 4, Episode 20. Catch the episode on Hulu and join us on Monday to see if this show holds up!

Diff'rent Strokes - S4E2

Whatchu talkin' about, Travis?

Well, Travis is talkin' all about Diff'rent Strokes! This episode kicks off our month of "drug" episodes. Every good series has an anti-drug episode, or an episode where some character finds their way into the seedy underbelly of drug use. We're here for it!

Let us know what you thought of this episode by sending us an email to or hitting us up on twitter at @thosedaysshow

The next episode is going to be in TWO weeks. That gives you plenty of extra time to catch the next episode of classic tv. We'll be watching TGIF classic "Dinosaurs." We're really pumped for that one.

Watch Dinosaurs - S2E9 - Available on Disney+

The New Scooby-Doo Movies - S1E3 - Wednesday is Missing

The New Scooby-Doo Movies - S1E3 - Wednesday is Missing

The gang fires up the ol' mystery machine for this weeks episode where we review The New Scooby-Doo movies! It's a special guest/crossover episode with the creepy and kooky Addams Family! I couldn't think of a better crossover for Mystery Inc than an actual creepy family house. We had a good time with this one. We had so many memories of Scooby-Doo and the show had definitely been a part of all of our lives growing up.

We hope you enjoy it! Be sure to let us know what you thought at or @thosedaysshow on twitter

Next Week we kick off DRUGS month!

I Love Lucy - S3E27

Well I'm just as happy as a wet dog behind a warm stove! It's time for I Love Lucy! This time we're covering the episode where Tennessee Ernie Ford visits the Ricardos and, to no one's surprise, shenanigans ensue!

We had a great time talking about this one and we all laughed until we cried at a few points. I Love Lucy truly is the GOAT when it comes to classic TV and episodes like this prove it. 

Next week! It's The New Scooby Doo Movies with special guests The Addams Family! Watch the episode at the link below:

The Muppet Show - S3E27

The Muppet Show - S3E27

It's time to play the music! It's time to light the lights!

That's right, ya'll. This week we cover everyone's favorite bunch of fuzzy entertainers, The Muppets! The Muppet Show was, and continues to be, a cultural phenomenon of television. In a world where prime time was mostly all about human beings, the world welcomed a bunch of puppets into their lives and the rest was history. This episode features special guest Harry Belefonte, who is just a joy to watch. We had a blast with this episode. We hope you enjoy it!

Next Week! I Love Lucy - S3E27 with special guest: Tennessee Ernie Ford!

The Greatest American Hero - S1E1

The Greatest American Hero - S1E1

On this episode, our retronauts take a look at The Greatest American Hero. A sci-fi/superhero comedy/drama thing from the early 1980's. This episode was a feature length pilot that was more of a TV movie than a regular show, and it certainly used its runtime to the fullest. Enjoy the show!

Hosted by Audie Norman

Next week, Stephen takes us on an another superhero adventure. This time with Batman 1966! When the Dark Knight wasn't so dark at all. Find that episode on at

Alf - S1E1

Alf - S1E1

On this episode, the nostalgianauts review the very first episode of Alf! For those who have no idea, Alf was a show about an alien that crash lands in a family's garage and immediately starts causing all kinds of sitcom appropriate trouble. This episode is wonderfully hosted by TVsTravis as he regales us with tales about his fond memories of watching Alf. We also chat a bit about the final episodes of Alf, the difficult TV shoot, what it's like to watch an 80's show after years away, and whether we want to watch another one.

Next week, Audie has us tackling the very first episode of The Greatest American Hero! The pilot is available for free with ads on Watch it before the show and give us your feedback!

See you next time.
