Not The Brady Bunch, thought it was naff. Liked the two sendup movies, though.
I did watch The Partridge Family (for Susan Dey). You must bear in mind I was between the ages of 14 and 23 in the seventies. Here we go, in order of what I would most desperately like to see again ....
U.S. 70's shows
- Columbo (Where do I start? I think the first few seasons are my favourite) "Er....just one more thing....."
- The Name of the Game (glossy Universal telemovies with rotating stars, I'm also a sucker for great opening titles/theme music)
- Kolchak: The Night Stalker
- Night Gallery patchy Universal horror anthology series with great guest stars and soon to be famous directors (Steven Spielberg)
- Search (Probe was the pilot movie, loved the Dominic Frontiere theme music and the changing stars format)
- Rich Man, Poor Man mini-series (polished Universal production)
- Laugh In (1968-1973)
- MacMillan and Wife (Universal again, John Schuck really annoyed me!)
- Banacek (Cool Peppard rowing down the Charles River)
- The Snoop Sisters (shortlived but not forgotten, those old birds were good)
British 70's shows
- Family at War must-see wartime melodrama
- The Sandbaggers I preferred this to Callan, but my wife will kill me for saying such sacrilege.
- Bouquet of Barbed Wire miniseries, pretty raunchy, if I remember.
- Journey to the Unknown another horror anthology series, creepy introductory whistling music. I know it finished in 1969 but I didn't see it until 1970, it's my blog, it wouldn't be the first time the truth has been 'bent' on the Internet.
- Thriller (from the creator of The Avengers, Brian Clemens)
- The Persuaders big budget Lew Grade series, Tony Curtis was great, so were the cars.
- Doctor in the House (loved Professor Loftus)
- Morecambe & Wise (Brit gold)
- Doctor Who (Jon Pertwee episodes)
- Doctor Who (Tom Baker episodes)
