My mother in law is hooked on shows like Peter Gunn, Perry Mason, Columbo, Matlock. When she first found Peter Gunn I enjoyed a couple of the episodes - it is like anthropology 101. The way people are dressed, the cars they drive, the show itself. After all, these shows were filled in the late 40s or early 50s. I am amazed at the cigarette smoking -= nothing like someone walking into your home and lighting up without even asking. I guess we never thought much about it back then although I always recall "guests" (including police interrogators) asking if it was ok to smoke.
