I was taking my son to work yesterday and he noticed a plane. I responded with "da plane, boss, da plane!" He didn't catch the reference! Lol
Ron, I feel your pain, lol! I have similar issues with my significant other as she is 10 years younger than me as such does not have the same interest in classic TV. I tried introducing my gal to Charlie's Angels, but she just shrug it off as clothes look so 70s or look at the hair styles or just other areas.
Fantasy Island always will have a place in my heart as it was a show that I remember growing up as kid as it was show saturday night at 10PM. I agree with an earlier post that Love Boat and Fantasy Island go and hand together as they were shown back to back in the 1970s and early 1980s.
