Blast from the past: Classics you shouldn't miss
There’s nothing like vegging out in front of the TV tuning in to something familiar. Sure, you've heard the jokes before, you've seen the cast ten years on and the scenery is dated, but nothing beats the pleasant bout of nostalgia that classic sitcoms bring.
If you haven't noticed yet, DStv's sprinkled a good dose of familiar favourites across its channels. Here are a few you should make a point of checking out.
That 70's Show
Ten years on and I still wish Red and Kitty were my neighbours, Donna was my best friend and I had a cool basement to chill out in. And then of course, there's Fez...
That 70’s Show airs every weekday at 8:30, 12:44 and 16:10 on Comedy Central.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
“Now this is a story all about how, my life got flipped, turned upside down...”
If this one doesn’t get you singing along, nothing can.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air airs every weekday at 17:40 on SONY.
Married with Children
Aaah, Al Bundy - husband, father, shoe salesman. Sure, there were the nice guy dads - Home Improvement's
Tim 'the tool man' Taylor and Full House's
Danny Tanner - but I've always had a soft spot for Al Bundy, probably because I always felt just a little sorry for him.
Married with Children airs on Saturdays at 18:00 on M-Net Series.
A little more recent than these, but just as good, is Ugly Betty
. Credited with skyrocketing the career of America Ferrera and rejuvenating that of Vanessa Williams, Ugly Betty
is the perfect mix of comedy, drama and fashion. Don't miss the chance to see it again.
Ugly Betty S1 starts on Comedy Central on Sun 5 Feb at 18:46.
