    Streets of San Francisco

    in the episode 'Deadline' Mike Stone tells Steve about how years ago when he was the young rookie Detective his senior partner back then was 'old Mcintire' I always wondered if that was a show salute to John Mcintire as Lt Dan Muldoon who with his young partner Det Jimmy Halloran - James...

    Streets of San Francisco

    Streets of San Francisco

    I first saw 'Let's Pretend We're Strangers' in the USA when on holiday in Florida I thought it was a great epsode - Guest Star Linda Kelsey was terrific as public defender Susan Harper and the oh so 'innocent' good looking guy Billy (a cruel killer of a young woman in truth in the episode) who...

    Where is the rest of the Original Avengers (Steed & Mrs. Peel)?

    I have the three known to survive first season episodes season one IS important the show title is because in the pilot episode 'Hot Snow' - of which only act one survives - Dr. David Keel (Ian Hendry) has his fiance gunned down - by mistake as he is the target of a drug gang hitman re a drug...

    Lancer

    fingers crossed for a DVD release eventually ! at least the new film will remind some of and introduce others to Lancer ! here in the UK it was screened by BBC in alternation with seasons of The High Chaparral at 8pm on Mondays , I never missed an episode of either show I always assumed it...

    Streets of San Francisco

    yeah I'm not surprised that other factors probably killed Streets...by it's fifth season it wasn't a 'new' show anymore and while it was still a great show and with Dan Robbins arrival was perfectly set up for a sixth season - and the Stone / Robbins pairing deserved a second season - the style...

    Recommendations wanted for a vintage half hour western

    well don't watch Bonanza; The Next Generation or Bonanza; The Return - as excepting Adam who we never see ALL the Cartwrights are dead !!! none of em were immortal were they ? however much we may want to think they were... there were decent episodes in season 14, just as earlier there were...

    Recommendations wanted for a vintage half hour western

    re Bonanza - the sad fact was for many dear old Dan Blocker as 'Hoss' was irreplacable and the show wasn't the same minus him , plus they moved it to another night set against popular competition which killed it in the ratings and it was axed two thirds of the way through season 14 with eight...

    Fantastic Journey

    while most of Irwin Allen's TV shows had no proper resolution The Time Tunnel concluding story 'Town of Terror' does end with Tony and Doug appearing to return to the Titanic as in the pilot episode creating the impression of a recurring cycle... likewise with 'Land of The Giants' if you swap...

    Lost In Space: The Complete Adventures (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Interesting reading through this lengthy thread - both here and on other forums I have visited how so many were NOT happy how Dr.Smith came to be the central figure in LIS I have seen youtubes and read in books how Smith and Jonathan Harris were the MOST popular on the show...yet many seem to...

    Lost In Space: The Complete Adventures (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I have the three seasons on DVD which is enough for me I tend to watch almost all the more adventuresome first b/w season then very much 'cherry pick' the color season two and three episodes for a combined 'color second era' of LIS - with the more cast based episodes like 'Blast off into...

    If TV DVD leaves us?

    while it's possibly an age thing I just do not find modern TV very watchable to be honest IF the plot is better than average I find I know it from somewhere before... most of today's actors for me have zilch charisma or any truly memorable aspects, TV characters now seem to me to require...
