In Therapy        HBO

 

The original “In Treatment,”

set in Brooklyn,

began on HBO in 2008,

itself an adaptation

of a popular Israeli series,

“Be’ Tipul,” set in Tel Aviv.

 

It had an unusual structure.

 

A therapist

— Assi Dayan in “Be’ Tipul,”

Gabriel Byrne in “In Treatment” —

saw a different patient each night.

 

And then,

on the fourth or fifth

or sixth night of the week,

he saw his own supervisor.

 

Episodes consisted entirely

of two or sometimes three people talking,

mostly about feelings.

Arthur        USA        1996-2021

 

much beloved animated kids show

 

Arthur

followed its titular character,

an eight-year-old aardvark,

as he navigated life among family,

friends and school.

 

The show had a knack

for featuring characters

from different cultures,

classes and family backgrounds.

 

At times it was boundary pushing

— an episode of the show's spin-off,

Postcards from Buster,

received criticism

from then-Education Secretary

Margaret Spelling

for a 2005 episode

that featured lesbian parents,

and Alabama Public Televisio

 refused to air a 2019 episode

that showed a same-sex wedding.

Roots remake        USA        2016

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This new Roots works its way

through stories along several generations.

 

It still leaves room, as did the original, for a sequel

— but the central Roots story remains potent enough,

and even more so in this new telling.

Characters are given more time,

and the actors do wonders with their scenes —

especially Kirby as Kunta Kinte, Rose as Kizzy,

and Page as Chicken George.

 

You'll feel for them and their journeys.

 

This new Roots is a TV miniseries

that not only should be seen but, like the original,

definitely deserves to be talked about.

Roots        ABC        USA        1977

 

The original Roots miniseries,

based on the 1976 Alex Haley novel

tracing his own family tree

from African tribal life

to American slavery and freedom,

was a phenomenon.

 

ABC showed it over consecutive nights

in January 1977,

not because it was expected to earn huge ratings

but because network executives were afraid

it wouldn't.

 

So they crammed the entire miniseries

into an eight-day prime-time marathon,

which aired, by coincidence,

during a massive winter storm

that snowed in much of the Northeast.

 

Roots was TV's

original binge-viewing experience,

and it kept drawing more viewers every night.

 

Its finale, still one of the most-viewed scripted

programs in TV history,

was seen by more than 100 million people.

 

It started a new national dialogue

about race and racism,

and slavery and genealogy,

and launched or heightened

the careers of several black actors,

including LeVar Burton, John Amos,

Leslie Uggams, Louis Gossett Jr.

and Ben Vereen.

https://www.npr.org/2016/05/26/
479494123/in-its-retelling-roots-is-powerful-must-see-television

 

 

 

“Roots” transfixed Americans

— first as an overnight best seller

by Alex Haley,

then as an ABC mini-series,

which drew 100 million viewers (...).

 

It made the slave trade and black history

inescapable parts of national popular culture

and produced a unique moment

when ordinary Americans

talked about slavery in workplaces,

bars, churches and schools.

For generations,

Sesame Street has been a mainstay

of American children's television.

 

But when the show premiered (...) on Nov. 10, 1969,

it was considered controversial, even radical.

The Love Boat        USA

 

aired on ABC from 1977 to 1986

 

in addition, four three-hour specials aired

in 1986, 1987, and 1990.

 

 

The show,

which ran from 1977 to 1986,

revolved around Mr. MacLeod’s

affable white-suited captain

and a crew of regulars

as it ventured into

new television territory,

offering simultaneous plot lines

in each episode, all having to do

with the humorous, and amorous,

adventures of the cruise ship’s passengers,

played by guest stars.

(Mr. MacLeod later became a pitchman

for Princess Cruises.)

 

But unlike

“The Mary Tyler Moore Show,”

which was acclaimed for its writing

and its willingness to defy

the sanitized conventions

of situation comedy,

“The Love Boat,”

produced by Aaron Spelling,

was vilified by critics

as just another example of safe,

formulaic TV comedy.

Spitting Image

 

It was on 26 February 1984

that the caricatures of Peter Fluck and Law

were brought to life in puppet form

for Spitting Image.

 

The show ran on ITV for 18 series,

bringing to the world

a jive-talking banjo-strumming Pope John Paul II,

a CND supporting Queen,

a leather-clad Norman Tebbit

and many more.

television comedy > groundbreaking series

“All in the Family”        USA        1970s

 

adaptation of the British series

“Till Death Us Do Part,”

starring Carroll O’Connor

as the bigoted,

malaprop-prone Archie Bunker;

Jean Stapleton as his wife, Edith;

and Sally Struthers and Rob Reiner

as their bleeding-heart daughter

and son-in-law.

(...)

“All in the Family,”

which had been rejected by ABC,

had its premiere on CBS in 1971

as a midseason replacement

in the unenviable Tuesday night slot

following “Hee Haw,”

the variety show

built around country music

and cornpone humor.

Mr. Gilbert

(...)

in the early 1970s

(...)

was the envy

of many documentarians,

having produced

well-received films

about the anthropologist

Margaret Mead

and the disabled Irish writer

Christy Brown.

 

He was a producer at WNET,

the New York public

 television outlet,

when he came up

with an even more

ambitious idea, at a time

when narrative journalism

was on the rise: to follow

a real American family

for months,

capturing moments

mundane and emotional

in an unvarnished,

unrehearsed style

known as cinéma vérité.

“The Mary Tyler Moore Show”

and its spinoff “Rhoda”        USA        1970s

 

“The Mary Tyler Moore Show,”

running from 1970 to 1977,

became one of the most acclaimed

comedies in television history,

winning Emmys and a devoted audience,

not least because it centered on a young,

single professional woman

— still an adventurous premise

at the time —

and offered quick-witted comedy

with generous doses of the real world,

addressing serious topics like drug use,

homosexuality, women’s rights

and premarital sex.

“The Beverly Hillbillies”

burst upon the scene

on the evening of Sept. 26, 1962.

 

“In tonight’s fun-filled premiere,

Buddy Ebsen stars

as the head of a proud hillbilly clan

that discovers an oil well at home

that leads to a new home in Hollywood!”

a CBS print advertisement proclaimed.

 

Other cast members included

Irene Ryan as the flinty matriarch Granny

and Max Baer Jr., as the bumpkin cousin

Jethro Bodine.

 

At its height, in the ’60s,

“The Beverly Hillbillies”

was a family favorite watched by millions.

 

But by the end of a decade

marked by assassinations,

urban riots and the Vietnam War,

American tastes were moving away

from such innocent, cornpone fare,

and the series ended in 1971.

 

An effort to revive it in the fall of 1981,

through a two-hour movie pilot titled

“The Return of the Beverly Hillbillies,”

fell flat.

 

But the show’s fans,

many of them children

who grew up watching it,

remained fond of the series

(it was later broadcast in reruns) (...)

“Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In”        USA

one of the top-rated shows on television

in the late 1960s

(...)

The show, which first appeared

as a special in 1967 and ran until 1973,

satirized the counterculture

and featured show business guests

like Diana Ross

as well as public figures

like the Rev. Billy Graham and Richard M. Nixon,

who, appearing while running for president

and trying to shed a stiff image,

drew laughs and a few gasps

when he asked, “Sock it to me?”
