I just watched the first episode of Have Gun Will Travel that I have seen in years....

Damn! It was still good! Paladin is every inch a Spycraft character. :)

*EDIT* Hmmm, turns out that the character Paladin actually made it to old age, appearing as a forensic investigater in a show titled Hec Ramsey....



The Auld Grump, who had never even heard of Hec Ramsey....

I don't know how the story ends...
But I do know what happens next.

The Munsters (terrible copy I am afraid).
The Addams Family - at one time more people could remember these lyrics than could remember the Star Spangled Banner....

Groovie Goolies and Friends

The actual Goolies intro...

However, once you hear this version it just gets stuck in your head. (it's on my repeat list)

I would highly recommend the CD "Saturday Morning Cartoons' Greatest Hits"... you haven't lived until you see a stripper named "Bunny" dance to this CD's version of "Sugar Sugar".

Heh, I remember back when it was a spinoff of The Archies - The Groovy Goolies and Sabrina. :P That was all the way back in 1970....

Lou Grant
An odd spinoff from Mary Tyler Moore - completely different theme, only one character in common, but there you go.... The scene I remember best from MTM was Ted Knight's character looking up in one of the minor characters bedroom, looking worried, and starting to comb his hair while looking up. He never mentioned a mirrored ceiling, but you knew it was there.

The Auld Grump, me Mum liked that show....

*EDIT* And one that I liked back then, for reasons that escape me now... My Partner the Ghost. :)
Which leads in turn to The Ghost & Mrs. Muir.
Oh ye cods and little fishies! I just found out that they did a remake of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) - American title: My Partner, the Ghost.  :o Now I am going to have to go digging to see if I can find it on DVD....

The Auld Grump, it only had about a season and a half the first time around!

I keep forgetting you Americans (and other foreigners) don't get all out TV, I do quite like the Randall & Hopkirk deceased remake, with the caveat that I was too young for the original, though I did like it despite not being a fan of Reeves and Mortimer.

Heh, I am old enough to *cough, wheeze* seen the original, at least after it made its way across the pond. It was wonderfully low budget, for the scenes where the ghost suddenly appeared the whole onstage cast would freeze, the actor playing the ghost would walk on, take his position, and everone would unfreeze. The little bit of film with everyone frozen and the ghost walking on would be left on the cutting room floor. :P

I found it while looking for the soundtrack from the original, which might be good for use in game, and I don't think that anyone else at the table has ever seen the show, at least enough to recognize the music.

One of the defining shows of my childhood: The Wind in the Willows (The claymation series, not the Terry Jones movie)

SeaQuest DSV (Ahh, the memories)

DSV ahh..there's an underestimated series

So true, that was such a tragedy at what would have been an interesting series....

Mark Frankel's (aka Prince Julian Luna) death was the final nail so to speak. Showtime was going to bring it back due to fan support but his death killed all the momentum. Stacy Haiduk was magnificent as Lily Langtree.
