    Here is a VERY obscure TV trivia factoid: During BJ and the Bear's heyday, a 'BJ and the Bear' lady's shampoo was marketed. I only remember this because my sister was eight or nine and nursing a scalding crush going for BJ. When the shampoo came out, she climbed the walls until my mother bought her some.

    When they got home from purchasing the shampoo, my sister ran to the bathroom to shampoo with her loved one's new hair care product. A few minutes later, she came out, went over to our father, shoved her still-dripping head under his nose and asked him how it smelled. He replied that it smelled like puppy farts. She cried broken-heartedly for almost an hour, until our mom was able to calm her down. Now you guys know where I got my sense of humor.:supergrin: Eric

    I watched Riptide mostly for the Corvette...

    And every time I watched The Drew Carey Show and Mimi showed up, I envisioned the helicopter; the Flying Mimi...

    I loved that show. In fact, that was a great night of TV. Thursday night, there was Riptide at seven, Simon & Simon at eight and Magnum PI at nine. The next day, you had the Incredible Hulk at seven, the Dukes of Hazard at eight and Dallas at nine.

    I know entirely too much about TV, don't I? Eric

    It was a gee-whiz looking car, but it was just a fiberglass shell on a VW Bug floorpan. VW-based kit cars used to be very popular. Some of them were quite distinctive looking, but I shudder to think what would happen to the passengers, in even a moderate crash. There is simply no structural support there. Scary stuff.

    I liked the gimmick the two guys in that show had, where they had a standing bet over who had the lowest pulse rate after a fight, or scary situation. Anyway, that old guy always reminded me a bit of John Wayne. Eric

    Gunsmoke.

    My Dad used to wake me up to watch it with him. It was the only thing we really did together.

    Who remembers Sha-Na-Na. My only defense for watching that was that I was a little kid. It was a bonus tat it pissed my dad off every time he saw it on the TV. He could never resist a rant about how 'Guys would have gotten their asses kicked if they dressed like that back then!!!'. :supergrin: Eric

    I watched Hardcastle and McCormick. It was a pretty good show.

    I have not read to the end of the thread but I seem to remember the show with a Cord as well but dont know what it was.

    I watched it....but as you well know, that was back in the day of 5 or so channels...and Sha-Na-Na came on right before Wonder Woman...so I had to sit through Sha-Na-Na waiting form Wonder Woman.

    I dont know if admiting I was waiting for Wonder Woman is any better than excusing why I was watching Sha-Na-Na. :rofl:

    I remember it but didnt watch that one. You are right, there was a crap pile of "odd couple" mystery/detective type shows back in the day.

    I was partial to Remington Steel, Moonlighting and Hardcastle and McCormic.


    So what about Dynasty, Dallas and Falcon Crest?

    I liked Dallas (who didnt) and Dynasty was a show I put up with because we had one TV and that is what my Parental units watched.
