Like everyone else I got all but the last one quite easily. Had a problem even understanding the soap clue, so didn't get it. Good teaser for us "older" people.

That was fun! I even guessed "Emergency" though I'd never heard of the show. All the others I'm familiar with. Boy I feel old now! I wasn't born till '76, but I must have caught a lot of re-runs!

Missed the Soap one and I loved that show!! I didn't know the Flying Nun was in the 70's though, I was born in 1968, so maybe early 70's that I don't remember!!
