    The Phillip Marlowe is a favorite of mine. I really enjoyed the unique take on the character. (For the others we're waiting for our ride to the airport)

    Thanks Randall. This thread was Neal's idea but I've had a lot of fun with it. Almost every night we tuck into bed and watch something before the news comes on. I have a thumb drive full of vintage stuff and because the bedroom tv is smaller it works well. The shows usually are also calming if...

    I'm sad to say I saw the My Mother the Car premier on TV. Never watched the second one. I didn't think it was all that bad - just not my cup of tea. I confess I did watch a lot of Jeannie but it had little to do with the scripts.

    And while we're discussing TV we have to acknowledge commercials. Once again - if you are easily offended skip these and not work or family friendly. This first one never made it to the air. Orsen Wells does a commercial Here are some we wish they'd done Bass-O-Matic Dan Aykroyd SNL...

    I'm going to be gone for the next 2-3 weeks. I'll be very limited in both computer power and wifi so no posting. I still have a list of over 50 programs I want to post and I will get back to them but for now I thought I would do my last day before my hiatus with just stuff that is just fun. Only...

    I have a lot of discs and I find as I get older, the majority of them sit and collect dust. But some get re-watched and other get re-watched a lot. Everyone is different. The secret is to do what makes you happy. Life is too short. As long as it doesn't effect your or your loved ones adversely...

    One of the reasons for the thread Obscure Classic TV shows post your favorites is to (where we can find them) post video of programs so that people can learn about them and perhaps see if they like the content without spending money. (Can't help you on the quality of the release) There are of...

    I have talked about the great acts on variety shows but there is another reason to watch them for those of us into older TV. Last night we were watching the Mike Douglas show and he had Florence Henderson singing and Robert Lansing talking about being fired from 12 O'clock High. They also had...

    I know many that go through these find it hard to believe that there are so many shows they have never seen or even heard of. Well there were a lot of shows. This is a clip from youtube where they highlight just one year of premiers. It is the late 70's so there is a better chance that it was...

    Here's an oddity. Among kid shows it is the one that everyone uses as a model to do a parody. Pee Wee Herman used this show as inspiration for his playhouse. And yet it is not well known today. Pinky's antics were so crazy that he collapsed during a show and neither the director or cameraman...

    Today is Son of Who-Dun-It. All of these should have gotten a better chance. This monthly NBC Wednesday Mystery with Helen Hayes. was on in rotation with Banacek and didn't have a chance but I thought it was charming. Snoop Sisters 1973-74 This next series was launched on a Rockford Files...

    The early 50's was a wonderful time for music on TV. Imagine Stage Show where one minute you were watching Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey playing one of their classics and the next Elvis Presley was singing Shake Rattle and Roll. This was a time of transition. Many kinds of music were being played...

    Today it's Not Exactly time. These are shows that have similarities to other shows. He's a gambler and he runs a club in this noir style action series with cool jazz - but it's not Mr. Lucky. It didn't have Ross Martin and it didn't have Mancini but it was still a pretty good show starring...

    I too was a fan of Paul Winchell, Neal - In fact I liked all the vents of the time. Another one we used to see was Jimmy Nelson doing Nestle's Quick Commercials. I actually got to see him work live. As nice as he appears. And don't forget the darling of the Ed Sullivan show Senor Wences

    Well Neal, my posts were about Circus shows - not clowns. ;) Bozo was a franchise and different markets had different Bozo's (the character not TV personalities). I hesitate to go down the rabbit hole of local TV as it's appeal is primarily for those living in the area at that time. But just...
