Television is nothing like it used to be.

Many of us remember the days of rabbit ears, three channels, and the American Anthem sign-off every night at midnight. Maybe we grew up with All in the Family, Good Times, Miami Vice, Family Ties, Cheers, Friends, The X-Files, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Whatever time period you are from, do you remember what TV was like back then?

On this week’s episode, we look back at the television of our childhood, as well as how we do TV now. From 3 channels and limited options, to just too much TV to even contemplate, we are cracking open Pandora’s Box and peeking inside. This is a dose of nostalgia you won’t want to miss!
