Bring back the days of Old
27 May 2006 | by willallan77See all my reviews

This show was really one of the highlights of my youth(I don't consider it sad). Not too long ago(I'm 29 now) my Spanish mate and I were sitting down and talking about the days of old and this show came up. Still to this day my friend and I remember most of the theme song which was worth a laugh.

All I can say is as a young child I always found the stories fascinating. As the show occurred in my youth, that would explain my ignorance to its picture quality. I can tell you there are not many, if any shows these days that I would consider positive viewing for todays youth. All in all it was great show with passable acting and always a passable story line.
