Here's some TV shows on which I squandered my youth...
David Carradine as a former buddist monk who wandered the American west spouting words of peace and compassion.
Then, he kicked the living shit out of someone.
THE DEAN MARTIN SHOW
This show was really, really cool. At least I imagine it was. I was never allowed to watch it.
VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA
I'm still waiting for my damn Flying Sub...
Funny and quite sophisticated for it's time. And no, Ann and Don never did it. Ever.
Funny and iconoclastic, Laredo still holds up today on DVD.
THE GREEN HORNET
Fairly ho-hum action series that made Bruce Lee a superstar. Their car was stored upside-down on a secret revolving platform. Wouldn't that ruin the engine?
The only thing I remember about this series is the name. Wonder if it was as bad as it looked?
ABC's WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS
Every Saturday afternoon, this show proved that Americans didn't give a flying fig about international sports.
THE FLYING NUN
A totally weird and creepy show; not funny, not exciting, just creepy. Its a testament to Sally Field's charisma that she kept this dog on the air for 3 years. Apparently, there were even FN lunchboxes...
Sorry, but if you took this to school you deserved to get your ass kicked.
One of my favorite shows as a kid, I saw a rerun on TVLand recently and it was about the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Gaww...how did I ever buy this crap?
THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL
For 90 minutes each week, this show featured everything that was bad about the 70s.
Probably the best TV show of it's time. Every week, Richard Kimball would get involved in the life of some other lost soul, often risking his own capture in order to help them.
Sometimes they were the best thing on. I miss them.
Alfonso Cuarón’s directorial career has dealt with everything from updated Dickens ( Great Expectations ) to twisted coming of age ( Y Tu Ma...
Chilaquiles is sort of like Mexican lasagna, but with tortillas instead of noodles. Here’s my very simple version, which uses mainl...
While going through some boxes at my dad's house, I found this copy of TV Guide from September 14, 1985. It's the special fall previ...
Many thanks to Paul van Yperen of the blog European Film Star Postcards for today's guest post. He shares the story of a surprise hit ...
