Around the dial

At Comfort TV, David is continuing a very interesting series he started recently, to watch at least one episode of every prime-time network series to air in the 1970s. This week, he's up to Tuesdays in 1970. How many of them do you remember?

The Horn Session returns to the wacky world of F Troop, as Hal reviews the episode "Spy, Counterspy, Counter Counterspy," from the show's first season. With Pat Harrington, Jr. and Abbe Lane as guest stars, it's as wacky as you'd expect.

At Cult TV Blog, John continues his look into the alternative explanation behind The Prisoner. "The Prisoner in the Asylum" has been a very provocative series, and as I've mentioned before, I'm looking forward to watching the series again, only this time from the standpoint of his scenario.

At The Classic Film Connection, Jillian reviews the TCM documentary on Dean Martin, Dean Martin: King of Cool. Personally, I'd give that title to Steve McQueen, but as I mentioned here, Deano was always cool, and Jillian's analysis is terrific.

Rick is back at Classic Film & TV Cafe with another edition of the Movie-TV Connection Game, and as usual I'll warn you to refrain from checking the comments before you've given your own answers. These are always a lot of fun!

At A Shroud of Thoughts, Terence remembers the late Bo Hopkins, the latest TV and movie star to pass on, who died last week, aged 84. In addition to the many movies in which he appeared, he was also a familiar face on television throughout his career, including a regular role in Dynasty

At The Hits Just Keep on Comin', JB takes one of his periodic looks back at a date in living history; this time, it's June 1, 1982. You know, I'm surprised at how much of this I remember, and how long ago it seems. I think it's called getting old. TV

  1. Thank you for another honorific mention! I'd be very grateful if you let me know any comments you have when you watch the show again - I'm rather thinking that the project should have been a book (and not one I could ever write) rather than blog posts so I'm feeling rather dissatisfied with it!


Thanks for writing! Drive safely!
