Mannix - "Bird Of Prey" Parts 1 and 2. Two part Mannix episodes always seem padded and slow. This last two-parter of the series from Season 8 may have been the worst offender. The recap of part 1 nearly covered the entire first act. Petrocelli - "Music To Die By" Guest star Rick Nelson still couldn't bring me around to liking this show. I know it's considered fondly on this forum, but I just can't get into this show. Plenty of familiar names in front and behind the camera here that I like, just doesn't come together. All the personalities seem forced. Not a Barry Newman fan. Get Smart - "Satan Place" Would you believe I'm still on the first season having owned this show on DVD for 100 years? How about 50? OK, it was 8. I need to watch this more frequently. The F.B.I. - "The Animal" Another show I've owned for years now and I'm still on the first season. This episode stared Charles Bronson as an escaped psychopathic killer. I'm seeing more that I like in this show as year one comes to an end. Looking forward to year two already. Night Court - "Contempt Of Courting" A season 4 episode with the cast in place that will see out the rest of the series after three years of cast chaos. Not my favorite 80's comedy, but who can resist an excuse to watch Markie Post? The Professionals - "Private Madness, Public Murder" Created by the men who gave us The Avengers, written by Anthony Read and directed by Douglas Camfield. Both veterans of Doctor Who. What's not to like for fans of classic British TV! Emergency! - "Inventions" The last episode from season three. I sometimes just pick an episode at random from shows I've completed, but still like to revisit. A childhood favorite. I've never seen a bad episode. I still get absorbed into each episode like it was the first time I saw it. A true classic. Doctor Who - "The Sea Devils" Again, another random selection from a lifetime favorite. Jon Pertwee never disappoints as the Third Doctor. Up against The Master with some cool submarine and naval action. Top of the range! Kojak - "Deliver Us Some Evil" A season one episode staring John Ritter as a thief trying to get out of the action against the wishes of his money grubbing girlfriend. I still haven't seen the entire episode. This is one of the Universal double-sided disc that freeze up. I miss about half of the first act. Rawhide - "Escort To Doom" Rip Torn guests as a Native American with a quarter white heritage who leads a band of Chiricahua braves helping with the cattle drive. I really want to like the abbreviated last season of Rawhide. It's hard to believe today, but Clint Eastwood couldn't carry this series as the lead. Eric Flemming's Gil Favor was just a stronger character and presence on the open range.
