Around the dial

At bare-bones e-zine, Jack continues the Hitchcock Project look at the work of writer Clark Howard; this time the tenth-season episode "Night Fever" with Colleen Dewhurst, and Tom Simcox, as well as a very young Peggy Lipton.

For the kid in all of us, the Broadcasting Archives at the University of Maryland shares pictures of a delightful collection of classic TV coloring books, just in time for National Coloring Book Day! Did you have any of these when you were growing up?

Even though it's now August, it's still Christmas in July at Christmas TV History, and here's a link to the entry from yours truly. They're all worth checking out, and I hope you will.

At Comfort TV, David returns to the idea of "series that should have had a final episode," touching on one of my favorite examples - Hogan's Heroes. I think you'll enjoy his take on it, and I don't say that just because he has some kind words for me!

And this would seem a good time to mention my friend Carol, the brains behind Bob Crane - Life and Legacy, who just completed a successful appearance at Liberty Aviation Museum discussing her Bob Crane bio. I'm sorry I couldn't make it, but it sounds like a terrific museum to visit. Ah, someday.

Cult TV Blog is back on the case with The Avengers, reviewing "The Man With Two Shadows," a terrific story that also features a shot of Mrs. Gale in her underwear. The Horn Section is on the review trail as well, with Love That Bob! and "Bob Retrenches."  If you're fans of these shows, I assume you'll be reading these, but even if you're not, I hope you check them out - they make make you fans!

And at Garroway at Large, Jodie is back with a great story on how the memory can play tricks on you, and what that means for historians and biographers trying to tell the full story.

That's it for today - see you back here tomorrow, in the pages of TV Guide! TV
