I don't really consider "Step By Step" and "Family Matters" to be classics. I think of them as being horrible! They were TGIF shows after all, which to me represent the lowest form of sitcoms. Despite their presence, I still like Arconai and believe it's a great video site except for the fact that you run into a lot of pop-up ads while you're watching the videos and that's almost as annoying as Steve Urkel!


I STRONGLY!!! recommend you use an ad-blocker when you watch it or for other sites because the videos will load faster and they won't mess up your computer or your enjoyment of whatever videos you're looking at.


I also recommend Airy Tv as a better alternative. They keep adding new and better channels each week like this one: 77 1970s Cartoons Today they have Fraggle Rock and Fat Albert. They also have The Groovie Goolies and other surprises on their playlist, with no annoying popups or other interruptions.

I have a lot of adblockers on my computer.

Plenty of new stuff to watch this week for those of you who suddenly find yourself staying inside:


CTV Throwback - The Big C (2010) (4 seasons - 44 episodes) Also available on VUDU.

After debuting "Strong Medicine" last week, CTV has picked up another hit medical drama. "The Big C" stars Laura Linney as a woman who is determined to enjoy life despite the fact that she has been diagnosed with cancer.

ROKU - The Barbara Stanwyck Show (1960) The star's first TV role before her more successful stint on "The Big Valley".

TUBI TV - Mr Peepers (1952) (Season 1) Tubi just keeps getting better! This classic and rarely shown series stars Wally Cox as a shy but lovable high school science teacher where the faculty includes famous sitcom stars Marion Lorne ("Bewitched") and Tony Randall ("The Odd Couple"). TUBI only has Season 1 for now but may add the rest at a later date. Episodes from other seasons can be seen here:

Uncle Earl's Classic TV - Mr Peepers


Internet Archive - The Honeymooners(Classic 39 + Lost Episodes) Not quite the complete series but as close as you can get.


Airy TV - New channels:

77 - 70s Cartoons

83 - Hogan's Heroes

84 - The Dukes Of Hazzard

Not many releases available this week but what they lack in quantity they make up for in quality:

IMDB - ALF (Season 2)

CTV Throwback/Uncle Earl's Classic TV - Hazel (1961) (5 seasons, 131 episodes) The classic series about a funny, eccentric live-in maid starring Oscar-winner Shirley Booth is a little late to arrive on CTV but the wait should be worth it for the show's fans.

Airy TV - New channel 85 My Three Sons The entire series from beginning to end on one great continuous channel.

Pluto TV - new channel

421 One Day At A Time Another good show getting its own 24/7 channel which features the first 6 seasons.

This week's new releases and channels:


CTV Throwback

Kevin Can Wait - Starring Kevin James at his heartless best, infamously replacing and killing off Erinn Hayes (Season 1) with his former co-star Leah Remini (Season 2). Also on VUDU


Malcolm And Eddie - Starring Malcolm Jamal-Warner and Eddie Griffin in a terrible series which was a failed attempt to recapture the success of "The Cosby Show". (YouTube)


CRACKLE - What's Happening!(Seasons 2 and 3) - Not yet available on CTV. (Thank God!)

IMDB TV - Ally McBeal (Seasons 1-5) (Complete Series) - One of the few series that I used to love to watch on FOX.

AIRY TV - New "Live Streams" Channels

104 Camera Smile TV

105 Spyder TV

106 Kartoon Funtime TV

These 3 channels can also be seen for free along with many others on GINIKO USA. My favorite GINIKO channel out of the ones I've seen is called COMFY TV which, aside from the usual "public domain" classics found on other channels, also has some rare series on there including "The Ghost and Mrs Muir" and "Ensign O'Toole" that you might like to see. You may recognize the TVS brand name on some of the channels from a former website that I used to love to watch but no longer exists called TV4U.com. That had a lot of great classic TV shows and channels on it. Today, the TVS channels are found on GINIKO as well as their own free site called WatchYour.TV


And now the best for last which means it's TUBI time!

1. The Lucy Show - Collection 1 30 public domain episodes from Lucy's second hit series. Includes the classic "Lucy and Viv Put In A Shower".

2. The Johnny Carson Show Heeeerrreee's Johnny! Johnny Carson comes alive again with a selection of complete episodes from his late-night talk show broken down into three segments or "seasons":

Season 1: Animal Antics
Season 2: Best Of Carnac
Season 3: Best Of George Carlin

There's not much I can add to that except watch and enjoy and I'll see you next week.

I've never heard of Giniko USA before until now, so I'll have to make sure and check that out.

Thanks for pointing all of these shows and channels out, Sal! The only problem is I have no idea when The Ghost and Mrs Muir or Ensign O'Toole is on? I have noticed that there are no guides on other streaming channels also. Thanks for any assistance.

Today is a Good Friday to begin streaming and binge-watching for the long weekend. Here is what became available for you this week:


CTV Throwback - Dr. Ken - One of the worst sitcoms to come along in recent years about a doctor who thinks he's a comedian but isn't funny at all. Also on CRACKLE.


ROKU - Wanted: Dead Or Alive (Seasons 1,2 and 3)

Just Shoot Me (Seasons 5, 6, and 7)

The Joan Rivers Show (1989) - This was her ill-fated attempt at a late-night talk show on the new FOX network after her bitter departure from Johnny Carson and the "Tonight Show".

Pluto TV On Demand - Hopalong Cassidy (Seasons 1 and 2) (Also on TUBI).


Uncle Earl's Classic TV Wings (S 1 and 2)

Logan's Run (1978) (Complete Series - 14 episodes)


Internet Archive

Charlie's Angels

Finally, I should note that Airy TV now has a new website address that you can bookmark and update with more channels and possibly a few new ones still to come. They are now at https://webapp.airy.tv/ .

This was a big week for ROKU. Many classic titles which you can also find on other sites were made available to ROKU for the first time in whole or in part. Here are the highlights:


The Carol Burnett Show (Seasons 1-5) - 13 episodes have been added to the classic series but I can't tell you what they are because the site has been geo-blocked in Canada. It's one of the main reasons why I prefer TUBI instead.

The Johnny Carson Show - 21 selected episodes from the King Of Late Night, arriving 1 week after TUBI. Another point in TUBI's favor!

Dennis The Menace (Seasons 3 and 4) TUBI

My Favorite Martian (Complete Series) YouTube

The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts (Season 1) - At least 100 times better than the Comedy Central roasts. Watch the legends at work to see how it's done! TUBI


Other services:


IMDB TV - Hart To Hart (Season 1) CTV

CTV Throwback - Breaking In (FOX 2011-12, 1 season, 20 episodes)

Christian Slater stars as the head of a high-tech security team who makes people feel secure by stealing from them (sort of like our government!). Produced by Adam Goldberg and Adam Sandler so you know it will be terrible! Crackle

This week's new releases and additions:


CTV Throwback

The Dana Carvey Show (1996 - 1 season - 8 episodes) CRACKLE

The Jeff Foxworthy Show (1995 - 2 seasons - 38 episodes) CRACKLE


A pair of comedians turned sitcom actors who have a sense of humor and talent level below that of a 5th grader.


Internet Archive - Sledge Hammer - A great rarely-shown short-lived series from the 1980s about a cop who takes his job way too seriously.

TUBI - That Girl (Season 2)

Uncle Earl's Classic TV

Barney Miller (Season 8)

The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show (Seasons 7 and 8)

Trapper John MD (Season 1)

Lou Grant (Season 1)

Today Airy TV did a great thing by dividing their Classic TV channels into different groups by decades, something which other TV channels had discussed doing in earlier years but never got around to it. This is what they look like:


18 - 1950s

19 - 1950s (2)

20 - 1960s

21 - 1960s (2)

22 - 1970s

A few new shows have been added to the rotation for all of these channels, including Charlie's Angels, Rhoda, Gilligan's Island, and The Flying Nun. Check the website's TV listings to see when your favorites will appear.

No 80s and 90s for Airy TV?
