Like I need another way to waste time in front of the computer.

The wife and I tend to watch our TV on the internet these days - lots of our favorite shows are available online the day after they air on television.

Anyway, over at NBC's website they also have some episodes of classic shows from the 1970s, namely: Battlestar Galactica, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and The A-Team.

Oh, yeah. And they've got the original A-Team pilot. The one where somebody other than Lt. Starbuck plays Faceman.

Here's the opening sequence from a later season:

No matter how many bullets they sprayed, or how many times the jeep rolled over, nobody ever got hurt.

Here's the trailer for Buck Rogers:

Not bad, but when it comes to dance moves, Buck Rogers has nothing on Batman:

This is the best I could find for the original Battlestar Galactica:

Lots of clips and stuff from the new version on Youtube. Not to mention a lot of crossover stuff: videos of Star Trek ships battling Star Wars ships, or Battlestar Galactica ships, or other such things. Just search Battlestar Galactica and scroll around a little. You can't miss them.

Like I need another way to waste time in front of the computer.
