I did a question earlier about retro sitcoms that might not fly today. I'm going to do a list of five I definitely do not think would hold up.
This show was the epitome of 80's cheese. This show was too cutesy and innocent. However, this show would not fly today. It barely held up in the 80's in a market that already was saturated with sitcoms with orphans like Different Strokes and Webster. The show also pointed out flaws in the CPS system such as being incompetent and showing how the foster system is flawed. The show also was about an old man in his 60's raising a preteen girl. Needless to say, this sitcom has not aged well and does not hold up.
A show way more popular than Punky and still culturally relevant in a sense. However, the show is also 80's cheese. Plus nowadays Animal Rights activists would have a fit if ALF talked about eating cats.
All In The Family
The most popular sitcom of the 70's. Even for 70's standards, this show was not PC at all which is why it was loved. In the age where Roseanne has been canceled for remarks she made on twitter just imagine if Carrol O Connor was still alive and reprised his role as Archie Bunker.
The Andy Griffith Show
Quite possibly the greatest sitcom of all time next to I Love Lucy. The escape to small-town Mayberry, North Carolina for 30 minutes at a time transports generations to a quieter era. Nowadays this show would probably get complaints about not having a diverse cast, but it showed a town where the folks trusted their police force and no one was shot, They also did not need body armor or body cameras. Plus the town drunk just walked into jail whenever he felt like it and was still treated with dignity and respect.
Dukes of Hazzard
One of the best TV shows of the 1970's and 1980's. However with the Confederate Flag on top of General Lee as well as the sexualization of Daisy Duke of the time This show has been the subject of controversy. Quite honestly I always found it entertaining, but can also see why it wouldn't hold up today.
What are some others that don't hold up today that you enjoyed?
