I believe Lost In Space was

 

Bonanza

 

If you get the TV digital sub-channel in your area, there is a station called Antenna TV, and they show all this old shit, and you can sometimes catch them between conversion, like Hazel, when they went to CBS, they canned the cast, and brought in all new cast members(excluding the little boy Bobby Buntrock R.I.P.) the same year they went to color, and a smoking hot female lead, who I believe was Meredith Baxter Bernie's mom, also MYtv plays a lot of the off shit, from back then, like Bachelor Father, and Mod Squad, Lucille Ball produced the 3rd season of I Love Lucy in color, even though it ran in B&W, knowing the transition was coming and it could be ran in color as reruns, I will try to think of more, fuck I guess you could just Google it and find out, Im just a fucking dork who had to much time on my hands, and paid way to much attention to detail, so Im just going by what I remember, and have read up on, I know there are many many more shows that made the switch, I also know there are a bunch of lost seasons from TV shows, that are mostly the B&W seasons, I wasn't a pain in my dads sack when any of this was going on, so all I can know is second hand shit, Axe someone who was an avid TV watcher and alive during 1965-1966, and I bet you'd hit a gold mine.

Okay, but why are we talking about this? I mean, just to list 'em off, or are you hoping for something else?

Well sir, this was a revolutionary occurence in history, having only watched shows in b&w, to see them in color,it was a whole new world, and this,like so many of its predaccesors on here, is a list, and for some people, a highly intelligent and well informed knowledge of not only music, but tv, movie, books, and countless other topics, is on hand, and just like u like to show off your areas of expertise in music, others enjoy doing so as well, so i guess this is a list for hh members to put their vast knowledge of tv history on blast, for other tv gurus, like when someone posts a message axing CAN ANYONE LIST SOME BANDS THAT HAVE HUGE GANG VOCALS? And those in the know put their 2 cents in, does this make sense to u nolan?i know it does

We used to get that channel on the local directv package, but for the last 4 months there has been a message saying there is some problem and they are working to restore service, which is too bad because that was one of about 4 channels I actually enjoyed watching

 

And yes, Lost In Space was first b&w then transitioned to color

Has "Bonanza" been mentioned yet?

 

I'm also fairly sure that Jack Webb's classic cop show "Dragnet" was on long enough that it went to color eventually

Actually I think Dragnet started in 68, and lasted until 72, It beat the B&W era, I thought I mentioned Bonanza, maybe not,

No, Im pretty sure the original which began in B&W, ran into the early 70's, making the transition, the reboot wasn't until after the movie sparked up interest in it again, and that was in 84.

The original Twilight Zone ran from 1959 to 1964... all were in B&W.

 

Rod Serling hosted another anthology series similar to TZ in the early 70s called Night Gallery, that might be the "color" series you're thinking of.

According to my good friend, Dr. Wik E. Pedia, Dragnet actually started as a radio show in 1949 (!) before it made the move to TV in 1951 and ran till 1958. A second (color) "Dragnet" series started in '67 and ran till '70.

If this thread is gonna turn into a place where everyone corrects Cody, then it has potential to become one of my favourites.

I was referring to the "Jack Webb" produced Dragnet, the original Dragnet is old as fuck, Night Gallery was always in color, maybe it was the final year of Twilight Zone that was shot in color, I guess I can just go look all this shit up, and put an end to a pleasurable board for Nolan to post on, sorry, cant make it this easy for ya bud!

    • Lily Lowe - Scream      After listening to her debut album “Löwe“, it’s evident why LILY LOWE is being coined Norway’s new lady of rock. This young singer and songwriter – real name Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – has the voice, the looks and essentially, talent, to become a star. The mastermind behind “Löwe” is Norway’s rock institution Trond Holter (Wig Wam, Dream Police, Jorn Lande etc.) who not only co-wrote the songs, but also is the musical director & producer, and play all over the record. In fact, most of Wig Wam members play on the album, alongside other Scandinavian renowned musicians. But don’t lose the focus here: LILY LOWE is the star on the album: with her intense delivery of brazen vocals is sure to reign right alongside the most prominent rock artists to date. An she writes very good songs as well. LILY LOWE was a contestant for Norway’s Eurovision this year with the great glammy hard rock tune ‘Bad Baby’ (included into the album) but if you think her music is bland you better listen to “Löwe” carefully. Having a song titled ‘Handsome Whore’ in the track list give you an idea this album isn’t ‘Eurovision saccharine’ at all. This rocks, hard. Holter has provided a bright, crisp, rocking production for Lowe’s voice and he drops some killer riffs to boot, like on opener ‘Scream’ which while wrapped by a modern production it’s very classic rock. The kind of riff that worked in the Seventies, the Eighties, and today. ‘Bad Baby’ is the hit, catchy, infectious, with Lily showcasing why she grew up listening Guns N’ Roses and Motley crue. The glam metal ‘Daddy’s Type’ is probably the song that most reveals Holter’s involvement, because this could easily could be into any Wig Wam album. It’s almost like you get a little shocked when it’s not Åge Sten Nilsen who sings. On “Run” Lily & Holter try something different, more modern and adding some electronics to the mix, but don’t be fooled, this album rocks. “Löwe” is a catchy driving good debut album by this talented young woman, helped by a cast of top Scandinavian musicians. LILY LOWE is an artist we will certainly hear more about in years to come.   01 – Scream 02 – Crying Game 03 – Bad Baby 04 – 911 05 – Caught in a Dream 06 – Daddy’s Type 07 – Handsome Whore 08 – So Long 09 – Run Lill Sofie Eriksson Wilsberg – vocals, drums Trond Holter – guitars, keyboards, backing vocals Bernt Jansen – bass, backing vocals Magnus Galguften – drums Tom Jensen – keyboards
    • Tesla have released a new track titled "Time to Rock"  (Since this isn't really a video per se, I decided to drop it here in the hard rock forum)      
    • 1. Cinderella - Heartbreak Station   2.  Poison - Flesh & Blood   3.  Slaughter - Stick It To Ya 4.  Warrant - Cherry Pie 5.  Ratt - Detonator 6.  Winger - In The Heart Of The Young 7.  Jon Bon Jovi - Blaze Of Glory 8.  Trixter - Trixter 9.  The Black Crowes - Shake Your Money Maker 10. Pretty Maids - Jump The Gun
    • Nazareth - Surviving the Law Solid disc featuring Carl Sentance's second go round on vocals; that lead off track "Strange Days" is particularly good!  
    • listened a couple times, a few ok tunes but nothing I feel the need to listen to ever again. shame.
    • Jokes on you; I don't even have an attic. 
    • Heard this today and looks like being underwhelmed is nothing different. Musically it's still top notch, but there's quite a few pretty weak songs on this one. Way below par for HEAT. 'Hollywood' and 'Wings Of An Aeroplane' were the two stand outs for me, and a couple of others were okay, but for the most part, really quite underwhelming.  I like Kenny's vocals and there's no really prevalent issue other than the fact that some of the songs are just poorly written. Sad, yet simple.
