    Route 66

    Nick Adams might have worked, as a brooding type. Same with Clu Gulager. I don’t see what the problem was. She seems like a very spirited young lady.

    Route 66

    Yep, I like the later seasons more than I used to but there are too many "BJ is mad this week. Hawkeye is mad this week. Oh, Colonel Potter is mad again this week" episodes. How come Igor never got to mourn the latest family he adopted who split the scene? How come Klinger never got to demolish...

    Route 66

    It's off base and out of touch. It's like gauging the production value of a series by an unremastered 16mm syndication print that's seen significant decay. Ironically, you could apply most of his commentary to Mash, in an equally ill informed manner. "I remember thinking Mash was great but its...

    I usually enjoy writer Ken (Mash, Cheers, Frazier) Levine’s blog but today was a particularly bad one devoted to taking cheap shots at Route 66. Most of his comments here are ridiculously off base snarky remarks about classic tv in general. To be fair though, he is just as savage towards himself...

    I like Guy Lombardo. Just a play on words, no commentary on the man, nor the tuneage…and his restaurant looks snappy! Didn’t intend to derail your thread, appreciate the hard work you put into it.

    More Route 66 adjacent viewing: Barnaby Jones: The Deadly Prize. S2E8. With George Maharis, Val Avery, Madlyn Rhue, Albert Salmi, Alfred Ryder, and the great James Hong. It’s interesting, in these 3 70’s Maharis appearances I’ve watched recently, he’s often a passive, high strung, or weak...

    Neal, I’d say SST is worth your time. Fantastic cast, and Milner’s role is quite prominent. David Lowell Rich directed this film as well as 21 episodes of Route 66.

    Alan I completely agree. If I allowed reviews to dictate my viewing habits, I'd never have watched some of the things I ended up loving the most! I accidentally bumped into all this while looking to find a legit DVD release of SST: Death Flight (1977). It doesn't appear to exist. I think this...

    I’d disagree with the archive org summary. Aside from it being slightly factually inaccurate, I wouldn’t call it “so bad it’s good”. While in no way approaching art, it is solidly crafted entertainment, with a lot of great actors. Probably the moments that would elicit the most laughs are the...

    Route 66

    Route 66 adjacent viewing tonight with Murder On Flight 502, a 1975 tv movie with George Maharis, Robert Stack, Hugh O’Brian, and Farrah Fawcett-Majors. Director George McCowan had previously worked with Maharis on the 1969 tv movie The Monk and a couple episodes of The Most Dangerous Game...

    Just watched Glenn Corbett on an episode of Barnaby Jones. “Divorce, Murderer’s Style”, 1973. Pretty good.

    Great story! Hang in there Neal, glad your mom is getting better. I watched this episode about a year ago, it is a great one.

    Route 66

    When I was a kid I’d gladly watch a series with a 50 year old protagonist like Kolchak over kid-centric programming, so it makes sense that in my 50’s I’d want a show about 90 year olds.

    Earl Holliman, I can see it now. It’s a strange angle, making him appear gaunt and something about the eyes reminds me of someone else who I can’t quite place. A dream series for me would be a well written contemporary show starring the three 90+ year olds you mention. Although Hackman has...

    Randall, who is the screen cap between the b/w Getty images one of Maharis and Anderson and the color one of Maharis and Hackman? My mind isn’t working today.

    I could picture Maharis doing his own breezy take on “It’s My Life”

    He had some unkind things to say about Milner’s get up in an Adam 12 review 😎 There’s a great Invaders episode with Laura Devon.

    Milner in that last sequence: “I dare Flugel to find fault with this outfit.”

    I find this particular series of screen caps with its emphasis on men with strained expressions a welcome change from the usual barrage of beautiful women. 😅

    I always appreciate your posts Randall, and as far as I’m concerned, the lengthier the better. Always impressed by the amount of factual information and fun personal anecdotes you weave together. Great writing, great reading! I think there’s something to what Neal said too. Like him, I was...

    Route 66

    I think I’ll be taking the plunge on this one soon. Although I love the show, I’ve held off on both this and the Fugitive because of the endless confusing series of issues with the respective releases. I guess if I have to compromise, image quality is more negotiable to me than cropped picture...
