Classic TV: The 50s : Coke Time vs. Pepsi-Cola Playhouse vs Schlitz Playhouse

Coke Time vs. Pepsi-Cola Playhouse vs Schlitz Playhouse

Which of these "refreshing" 1950s television series do you prefer?

As much as I like 1950s TV, these are before my time. Of the three, I've only seen "Coke Time" (which I enjoyed), though the other two sound interesting as well (I see there are a few episodes of "Schlitz Playhouse" on YouTube, I should check them out). But which is your favourite of the bunch?



They should release more films and TV shows on DVD and Blu-ray

I prefer Pepsi-Cola Playhouse, as they always seemed like miniature "B" movies, to me. I also like Schlitz Playhouse, which had a lot, of stars, and good stories, and because my family watched it, all through the fifties. I have quite a few episodes, of both these series, on dvd. I didn't care, for Coke Time, as I was never very big, on musical shows.

I enjoyed Coke Time with Eddie Fisher in the 50s. There is an episode of Schlitz Playhouse I wish I could find.

Edit: I looked on YouTube for the Schlitz Playhouse episode I wanted but it wasn't on there.
