Picks and Pans Review: Our Time

UPDATED 08/05/1985 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 08/05/1985 at 01:00 AM EDT

NBC (Saturdays, 8 p.m. ET)

In 30 minutes, Our Time—a short-term summer series—tries to seduce the Baby Boom generation with clips from old shows such as Ozzie and Harriet, music from the likes of Rick (formerly Ricky) Nelson and Paul Revere and the Raiders and appearances by such long-lost stars as Jay (Dennis the Menace) North and Stanley and Barry Livingston (two of My Three Sons). Harry Anderson, the engaging star of Night Court, was a guest host on the premiere. Sound great? Don't believe everything you hear. Our Time also resurrects the worst of the '60s: skits that a 6-year-old wouldn't find funny, loud laugh tracks and bad and even sexist jokes. ("In 1966 designers introduced the see-through miniskirt; that same year, Flip Wilson came up with the phrase, 'What you see is what you get!") Two steps forward, three back.
