Memory Lane TV shows are old series that were released way back when televisions were not common in most households. These are the kind of shows that set the foundation for the TV shows we have today. These shows are intriguing and entertaining, and often are overlooked.
Here are the best Memory Lane TV shows on Netflix right now.
The Twilight Zone was the brainchild of Emmy Award-winner Rod Serling, who served as host and wrote more than 80 episodes of the original show’s 150-plus episode run. It’s a strange mix of horror, science-fiction, drama, comedy and superstition. Serling introduced each episode, and many of the black and white episodes concluded with a surprise ending. Actors such as Burt Reynolds, Roddy McDowell and Robert Redford made appearances in some of the more well-known stories.
2. Twin Peaks
A crime drama mixed with healthy doses of the surreal, this series is about FBI Agent Dale Cooper, who travels to the small logging town of Twin Peaks to solve the murder of seemingly innocent high schooler Laura Palmer. Almost nothing is as it seems, however, and the show’s sometimes eerie visuals, oddball characters and wild dream sequences drive the point home.
3. Freaks and Geeks
Growing up circa 1980, a misfit high-school student and his pals are probably destined to become new media millionaires, but right now they’re stuck in school, where all the girls are a foot taller and bullies terrorize the gym class. Meanwhile, his older sister is flirting with the dope-smoking bad boys, cutting classes and questioning the point of getting good grades.
