Watch TV Online at AOL -In2TV is Live (Beta)

By March 7, 2006

Follow me on:

Hold the phone - via InsideGoogle, I just learned that AOL has now launched In2TV, still in beta, that gives anyone with an AIM account or AOL Search login free access to classic shows from the 70's and the 80's. I am LOVING this. Here's just a few of the shows that I now will be clearing my schedule of such pesky things as washing dishes, taking the dog for a walk, and basic hygiene to watch:
  • Growing Pains: I used to have the biggest crush on Mike Seaver.
  • Eight is Enough: I totally think we should bring back that bowl hairdo that Abby insisted on sporting.
  • Falcon Crest: Jane Wyman, you naughty, naughty thing.
  • Head of the Class: Whatever happened to sweet little Robin Givens? Ohhh, mmkkay.
  • Kung Fu: Kung Fu? You mean Kung Fun!
  • Perfect Strangers: I'm finding it more and more embarrassing how much bad TV I actually watched in the 80's. Holy Cow.
  • Spenser:For Hire: I saw Robert Urich on a plane once when flying home from college in Chicago.
  • The New Adventures of Batman: Holy We're On AOL, Robin! Where's our royalty checks?
  • Welcome Back, Kotter: The hair, oh my word, the HAIR.
  • V: The series "V", while probably highly meaningful in a sociological sort of way, did nothing more for me than absolutely horrify the living &%($ out of me for weeks on end. My mom refused to let me watch it, so I would hide behind the couch, biting on my fingers and watching aliens swallow rodents whole. Man, I can still feel the goosebumps. I had nightmares for weeks. Good times!
