    Fox TV Network plans to celebrate its 25th anniv. with a special and some airings of its best shows. The way things are with TV today, could some of us look at THIS as "the good old days"? It was "edgy" then, and set a lot of folks off because of it.


    What do SportsJournalists.com'ers think (especially we older folks.....).

    I watched it last night. It was well-done, in part because Fox had no problem talking about the long list of failures...

    My favorite Fox show ever is X-Files. I'm not a big Sci-Fi guy, but I loved that show. I also think That 70's Show is a truly great show. Few shows are that much fun and made me laugh that consistently. It's the only show in syndication that I still watch.

    Never seen X Files or 70s Show. Was tempted to watch 24 until I found out there were 195 episodes. Pass.

    I watched the special last night and found myself saying "Oh, God. I watched that?" more times than I'd prefer.

    I was proud of myself for not watching Joe Millionaire. I am not proud of myself for watching "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancee" and "The Littlest Groom"

    I thought it was interesting that Topher Grace wasn't among the "That's 70s Show" panelists. I get the sense he's worried about being forever typecast as Eric Foreman.

    Should only take one day to watch all the episodes of 24.

    Yep, this is right. Give it a shot, Sonner.

    My buddy had a theory that all the prime-number seasons of 24 were worth watching. Kind of fell apart with Season 7, but was otherwise just about right.

    Reading between the lines, it always seemed like he didn't get along with the rest of the cast. I remember reading stories about how he didn't like the "Hollywood lifestyle" Kutcher and the others were getting into and hung around with friends from back home instead.

    I always figured it had a lot to do with him leaving the show.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure it was to spend more time doing this:

    Loved Joe Millionaire for the hilarity of it all. It sort of mocked all those dating shows people went apeshit over otherwise.

    Was Parker Lewis on there?

    I don't think Parker Lewis was ever seen or mentioned.

    The Legend of Brsicoe County Jr. remains a personal favorite.
