Yesterday I was watching My Three Sons and it was the one where Katy wanted Ernie and Chip to show her teenage cousins around town but they didn't want to be stuck with a couple of "clunky girls" so they said no.
But they eventually relented and long story short: Chip learned a valuable lesson about STDs. Uncle Charlie sat him down and told him about the scorching case of the clap he got in WWII and they all had a good laugh. Just kidding. They haven't covered the topic of STDs on My Three Sons. But they should.
My absolute favorite by far is The Rifleman.
I never heard of it before MeTV and I started watching it because of the crazy show opener. Now I'm totally wrapped up with Lucas McCain and his young son Mark and all the people in North Fork. I love how enormous Chuck Connors is, how adorable his son is, and you would not believe how many lessons I've learned! You can pretty much solve any problem you have with a rifle.
I'm actually learning all kinds of things from MeTV. For example, from the show Cannon I learned that it doesn't matter if you are tipping the scales at around 350, you can still knock out a gun-wielding bad guy with a well-placed karate chop.

From I Love Lucy I have learned that Latin men are tyrannical hot heads and Ethel is a fatass.
