One of the first things my husband and I discovered about each other was a mutual love of Get Smart.
It's hard to believe this show was made over 40 years ago, especially if you have seen a recent photo of Barbara Feldon (Agent 99), she looks only about 15 years older than she did back then. Must be that clean LA air keeping her looking young...
As a kid, I had no idea of just how gorgeous she was and as for those clothes! I remember laughing at her "daggy" clothes back then, but now - I'd kill for some of those boots and dresses she wore.
It's funny how your perception changes.
Like I Dream of Jeanie. I loved her outfit and really wanted one, big time. I remember spending hours colouring in a long strip of paper to imitate that length of chiffon that hung from her hat thingy. I was obviously a non too bright child otherwise I would have at least used fabric, rather than paper.
Now, rather than the outfit, I'd much rather have the face or fantastic boobs that poked out the top of said outfit.
I wonder if our children will look back at Everyone Loves Raymond or Malcolm in the Middle with such nostalgia? Surely not!
