Lost in Space? That's one of my all time favorite TV shows from way
back when I also had to get up and walk across the room to turn on the
TV and adjust the vertical hold button and the rabbit ears. Sometimes
I had to fiddle with the contrast and brightness to make that black-and-
white picture a little less fuzzy. More of my favorites were The Outer
Limits, Twilight Zone, and Superman with George Reeves.
