Best Classic TV Show: Official Nominees

Three nominees now bear all the weight of classic television programming on Hulu. Even in the face of that awesome responsibility, I think it's safe to say that we've come up with some pretty great standard bearers of the era.

Hulu Review readers and the general public can still cast their votes in the comments section of this post. The total audience vote is equal to the vote of one panel member. In addition, the top vote-getter will be recognized on Awards night.



JUST CLICK ON YOUR FAVORITE SHOW TO CAST YOUR VOTE!






One of the best film directors in American history turns his attention to the small screen, creates dozens of hour-long programs in his trademark masterful style, and as a result, gives us some suspenseful stories that have yet to be topped. This isn't a shoo-in for the award in what world, exactly? An added bonus is scanning the cast lists for great actors who are giving it their all, waiting to be discovered.



Pedigree-wise, this is the lightweight on the list. But it might be an emotional favorite, evoking sweet nostalgia deep in the magical hearts of our panelists and readers. It doesn't matter whether it's Darrin #1 or Darrin #2-- the nebbish husband of a witch is always good for a laugh when he's trying to cope with her bizarre world (especially his disapproving mother-in-law). Just when I think that this show has faded from cultural relevance, I see someone on tv casting a spell by wiggling her nose, and it all comes back.


This is one of the most-praised shows of all time. I'm not going to go into the show's amazingly long list of accomplishments-- just check out the Hulu program description to learn a little more about it.

The Dick van Dyke show is awesome. Witty, creative, hilarious. Not to mention it shows an ordinary family that has conflicts but always winds up loving each other in the end. That's one of the most-missed elements of TV shows these days. An all-around family fun show!

I vote for Dick Van Dyke because it has two dirty words in it, not just one, like Hitchcock.
