I grew up listening to radio. I thought most of the "older" TV programs were a total waste of time. In addition to super sweet, ultra perfect families, Ralph Cramden, and worse, you couldn't see anything with the poor picture image. I like newer cable stuff in HD, with realistic dialog and even some pleasing nudity, here and there. I'm the same age group as your grandfather. Let me guess? He says to old days were "good"? He obviously didn't understand what was going on around him back then.
