The 70's were awesome.

The Gong Show was always my favorite. I'll never forget that episode.

Damn right they were. The drinking age was 18 and you couldn't get the AIDS.

I remember the day it aired. That show was decades ahead of everything on TV. I'll be in my walk in freezer.

The Gong Show beats ALL the new "talent" shows. Gene, Gene, The Dancin' Machine; The Unknown Comic; and Zany Chuck beat everything on TV today without even trying.

/YMMV

You have to realize, this thread is about a show that will attract a bunch of dudes now in their 40s who remember the Gong Show as kids. In those days, we would wander the woods for hours searching under bridges looking for other people's moldy, wet porn caches like they were the goddamned Holy Grail.

Things were a bit different when you had to actually work to look at a picture of a boobie, and even if you found the boobie it would probably be waterstained and covered in turtle guano.

Lol. I'm not in my 40s (getting there) but I definitely remember the outdoor porn stash. We had a bridge over a river in my 'hood, and if you were lucky you would stumble upon some other kid's impressive porn cache, half-assed covered by a few rocks and maybe some twigs and leaves. I am a veteran of the outdoor porn wars.

Then, in the mid-90s, most of us had computers, or our families did. Even then, downloading one pic was painfully slow, and if you didn't like the result, tough sh*t. You fapped to it anyway because you didn't have all night to go hunting for the perfect pic. And actually purchasing porn sucked because they were all wrapped and you were stuck with what you got, which damn near never resembled the front cover. These were dark days, gentleman.

You kids don't know how good you have it. An entire solar system of porn is at your fingertips, and you don't have to earn it like we did. Farking punks. Get off my lawn.

Wait, did that video just call The Gong Show a "reality show"??????

Bull-farking-shiat. It was a talent show. Reality TV had not been conceived of during the '70s, thank Nixon and Carter for that. This could only happen under someone like Bush.

I wouldn't call it a reality show either, but it is important to the history of reality.

The reality competition program was a development from the game/talent show. The idea was "Hey, instead of only seeing contestants for 1 episode, let's see them for the whole season including times inbetween the 'games' and turn the contestants into characters."

And every once in a while you'd throw up after jagging off because squinting your eyes, turning your head and trying to see a boob on scrambled HBO/Showtime channels late at night could fark with the equilibrium.

Oh man... Skinimax.

Every now and then, in the wee hours of the morning, you would be blessed with a few precious seconds of unscrambled boob.

I wonder how many hours of my life I wasted staring at those squiggly lines waiting in vain for that paydirt.

They were not wasted! Never let them make you believe it! We could have been interstellar pilots with the hand-eye coordination developed through scrambled boob watching. It isn't our fault they don't have instellar travel!

And was it just me, or did it seem like the first .0037ths of a second on, the scambled channel was clear? I'd hurt my button hand hitting channel up, then right back down for the clear shot.

I heard Chuck Barris tell some backstory about this act once.

He suspected that the censors had a plan to cut a certain number of acts per show. So he hit upon the idea of inventing a couple of acts each show that were so outrageous that the censors couldn't allow them to air. That way the acts they would have cut otherwise would stay in.

Apparently when this act, which he called the popsicle twins, came on, the censors were inexplicably not watching so it made it into the show.

Then again, Chuckie also claimed that he was a paid CIA assassin, so that story may have all been a product his coke addled imagination.

I found my step-dad's stash of porn once. It was porn versions of old comic page characters. All I remember is seeing Popeye, Olive and Brutus together. It was disturbing...

BBS days. Uhhh (Jogging old gray matter) about late 80s early 90s. You'd call a local number, and connect through your 300 baud or, if you had lots of money, 1200 baud. (I still remember playing Trade Wars on my C64. I could type faster than I got info back from the server)

Compressed JPGS weren't around, or popular yet. I recall d/l'ing Tiffs and Giffs... *sigh* Good god I'm old...

/8bit porn... mmmm

Let's see. An unscripted show, where people are shot with hidden camera as they react to outrageous situations...

Definitely not invented in the 60's....
