I would say Alf, Alice and Mama's Family are the top retro shows missing from TV right now.
Well, it's different strokes, for different folks, as Sly Stone used to say. In my opinion, Alf
was passable - I used to watch it occasionally in its original run, and I might actually check it out once or twice on Hub. But for me, Mama's Family
was miss-able -and I liked the original skits on the Carol Burnett Show
made shivers run up my spine, and made me what to punch out Linda Lavin (especially for that putrid theme song) and the creepy woman who played the third waitress (not Flo).
If by "creepy", do you mean Diane Ladd [Belle Dupree 1979-81; Diane played Flo in the 1974 movie upon which the TV series was based, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore
] or Celia Weston [Jolene Hunnicutt 1981-84]?
As far as The Hub getting the Alf
reruns is concerned, their effort was, as Alf himself would say, "no problem".
