  • Me TV

    I just discovered Me TV tonite and have enjoyed Lost In Space, Star Trek (original, of course) so far, and now watching Svengoulie's running of The Mummy's Ghost ('44 w/Chaney Jr.). I'm in vintage heaven! How long has Oceanic had this available?

    Me TV is actually a secondary channel of KITV 4. Over the air the it is on Channel 4.2 while the main network channel is at 4.1. The cable TV channel number of course is different.

        If you like Me TV you'll probably also like THIS TV... In Honolulu it airs on KGMB Channel 5.2 OTA (the CBS station being on 5.1 OTA). FYI - KFVE is at 9.1 OTA. Cable channel for THIS TV as I last recalled is up higher in the 300 or 400 range on the digital service.

          Thanx, mel, there's some good stuff there, but I can't find it at all. They got Highway Patrol, that makes it worth finding. Good thing I've seen all the episodes.

            Another network in this vein is "Antenna TV" - is that one available to you folks in Hawai`i?

              Unfortunately, THIS TV seems to have a broadcasting problem - the audio is not very good. Specifically, the audio sounds clipped with a frequency of about 1 hertz. The gist is there, but the quality is not. Also, their OTA program guide has a considerable time offset that makes it hard to use.
              May I always be found beneath your contempt.

                Doesn't seem to be 'lulu'vailable.

                  Gotta say ME's weekly daytime shows are the worst dreck the '60s and '70s produced, and what made me hate popular viewing back then. I hit paydirt the other evening and will temper my excitement and viewing with guarded selectivity. We need more high quality programs like Laugh In, Johnny Carson, and The Monkees.

                      Absolutely! The evening/night/weekend fare makes up for the weekly daytime BS, and I think they have the original 5-0 as well. I'm consumed with the political channels during the daylite hours anyway, so it dovetails with my constant viewing schedule. As soon as I can set up a second TV so I can watch Pawn Stars and other quasi-reality stuff at the same time, I'll be set.

                        Wow we agree AGAIN?? I find the Old Man entertaining ... and the stuff people bring in to sell, well, you don't see that sort of selection in Hawaii pawn stores.

                          I have long been a Monkees fan (and trivia-head, now how useful is that?), and in the wake of Davy Jones' passing, I've been watching the DVDs of the complete series.

                          Much as I loved the show when it aired and can recognize the innovative techniques the actors/producers/directors brought to television, hindsight gives a different perspective - certainly NOT representative of "the best" TV had to offer in those days.

                          But still, a damn lot of fun to watch. (And the reason I brought "Antenna TV" into the discussion was because they ran a marathon of Monkees episodes a few days after Jones died.)

                            Certainly not for decades! Them and our swap meets used to be really good places to score cool items, that's been over for a long time.
                            That Vegas store has enjoyed a massive windfall of $ and attention with the interest per the show. They have a ton of interesting items coming in that we don't ever see. They have to close the store on filming days, it's way crowded. I love calling bullshit on items when I have better knowledge than the experts show. Red lights and whistles go off!
                            The 'old man' can be fun, but ChumLee is the star. He's more real than the others, and I can't stand the grandson, Corey. Rick, is probably a prick as well, but pulls off the show well. And he likes Hendrix, so he can't be all bad. I wish they'd lose the obvious fakery of personalities and stick to the meat, the Detroit show suffers from the internal BS as well. But the things they've spotlighted have often been incredible, stuff you'd otherwise never see or known existed. Whoever pushed the concept nailed it!

                            Monday evenings were ritual veiwing in the '60s, Laugh-In and The Monkees, same channel, back to back. I should have hated The Monkees silliness, and being friends with the Ed Roth family we always had that local (So. Cal) rivalry per the Barris brothers about the Monkeemobile, etc. But they were huge on Hendrix, so they had cred way beyond the stupid show once I heard that, and I love some of the songs still today.

                              The songs still stand up, years later, because they were really well-crafted pop. At that point in music-time, more and more bands were recording songs they wrote themselves, so there were all these great songwriters (research "Brill Building") who had fewer and fewer outlets for their material - Neil Diamond, Carole King & Gerry Goffin, Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart, Harry Nilsson, Jeff Barry, etc. - and here's where you gotta give Don Kirshner his due: he put their songs into The Monkees' throats, the other key to the music's success, right alongside the weekly TV show's exposure.
