Continued from Part 1…
Part 1 was mostly about Doordarshan and cartoon shows. So now coming to non-Indian serials….the top slot is taken by F.R.I.E.N.D.S…what else!!!! I have watched runs and re-runs and re-re-runs so many times that even my Mom knows which episodes I have already watched and recognizes all the characters. But still they make me laugh as if I’m watching for 1st time. And I miss having such a group of real friends. Here some of the best moments from the show.
Then I liked the serial “Charmed” a lot as I just love fantasy and magic. It was a story of three sisters who were witches. I watched only few episodes when it was being aired. I never thought I would be able to watch starting from season 1 to final season until now when I discovered all seasons are available on the Internet. And I watched season 8 last episode sneakily on Youtube first to see if it all ends well. It does.
Few years back, Sony used to telecast some of the best serials ever!! Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Who’s the boss, Silver Spoons etc etc. in the evening slot and we used to watch daily. Some of them inspired movies which never did as well the series. I simply loved the shows.
And last but not at all the least….it may sound strange but a Chinese/Korean serial dubbed in Hindi which used to aired on the channel HOMETV was my favorite…back in 1997….I watched the whole series 4 times continuously as HomeTV used to re-run a serial just after it used to end. That was the best summer vacation. But sadly it had sad ending, like all Chinese series do. The series was called “Blood Stained Intrigue” and I was simply crazy about it.
