A lot of people fondly remember The Price is Right on sick days. For me, it was Scooby Doo and anything on Telemundo if I didn't have a headache.

I think I said this in another post recently, but I watched Stargate-SG1 a lot when home from school.

I also binged The X-Files, MacGyver, Star Trek TNG & Voyager, Just Shoot Me, and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.

Dr. Quinn seems out of place, but Jane Seymour is and was a smoke show.

She awakened some things.


It is perfectly acceptable to fear and admire a being you could not possibly understand.

Oh my god, I remember as a kid seeing the commercials for the show and being like, "Who IS that Mysterious Woman?" Never saw an episode, but I was always curious.

 

 

 

Match Game and Pee-Wee's Playhouse.

Pee-Wee's Playhouse is best served in the middle of a terrible cold or at 3 am or under some recreational mental impairment.

I thought Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends was an underrated show, then I saw Aayla mentioned Lloyd in Space. I haven't heard anyone mention that name in a very long time. It seems like it used to come on Toon Disney, but I can't remember because it's been so long. I don't think I ever even watched it. Also, I forgot to mention The Twilight Zone.

There was a show my kids liked...  James and the Magic Marker I think...  It was a really imaginative show.

Google says "James and the Magic Train" or "Max and the Magic Marker" which is a video game.

 

I tried looking for just "magic marker" TV show and just got single episodes of other stuff.

 

Now I'm curious!

Omg Grolli. I love you. :lol:

 

Millionaire was great when you were super-sick. Yelling answers that weren't even remotely close and also shit-talking contestants whenever they'd screw up.

 

This may have just been me, however.

I actually won a million (theoretical) dollars a few times when I was younger.

And some contestants definitely had their faces verbally rubbed in their mistakes, from my couch.
