Netflix - A World of Re-Discovery

Do you know what I love about Netflix? It's their collection of old TV shows. Their streaming collection isn't bad, but it is in their DVDs that I have found a treasure trove of great old shows. I made my first discovery about six months ago when I discovered that Netflix had Emergency! available in their streaming catalog. It brought back a flood of childhood memories. My father was a volunteer firefighter in my hometown (he still is I might add). I can remember watching that show and thinking about him behind the wheel of the fire engine, rushing to a big fire. Of course, my town was considerably smaller that Los Angeles county, where Emergency! was set. The volunteer fire department in my hometown was never as busy as firefighters Roy DeSoto and John Gage.
