Episode 30 – The Rockford Files Pilot

After a short delay we are back! This week we are meeting Jim Rockford for the first time on The Rockford Files. A young woman, played by The Bionic Woman herself, Lindsay Wagner, wants Jim's help to solve her father's murder. Jim is reluctant and actually quits several times, but finally takes the case after notices some dummy tailing him in a giant red Cadillac. We get a fight in the men's room, a chase through the desert and a plane getting shot down by a hand gun. It's pretty exciting...


Episode 29 – Speed Racer, The Great Plan

Our first animated show! We go back a little farther in time to try to catch up with Speed Racer and his friends, and the powerful Mach 5, of course. Speed is a born racer but his dad won't let him race, probably because we see many drivers die in this episode alone. Pops Racer has designed a powerful new engine, quits his job and almost has his plans for the new engine stolen. Speed joins a race to win money so his dad can build his prototype. And, as often is the case, some bad guys get in...


Episode 28 – The Greatest American Hero, The Beast in the Black

Since it is almost Halloween we are talking about a special episode of The Greatest American Hero.

It's our first sitcom on the podcast! This week we go to the Sunshine Cab Company to peek in on the lives of our favorite cabbies on the classic TV show Taxi.

Episode 26 — Starsky & Hutch Pilot

This week we meet Starksy & Hutch, two tough cops working in a tough city. We don't know what city it is but it's tough, just look at it.

Turns out, yes, Jamie did not die at the end of the last episode we watched. She was resurrected by the power of TV ratings, and with some help from a handsome young doctor. Jamie lost her memory, of course, and kind of falls for the...


Episode 24 – Magnum P.I. 2018

Episode 23 – Battlestar Galactica Pilot, Part 2

Let's finish up this movie. We left off with the last remaining humans on some space casino planet, but you could tell something sinister lurked underground, so to speak. Now we have to find out if the humans make it off the planet with out getting eaten by the insect people or just blown up by the Cylons. For some reason one of the human counselors who just saw their planets destroyed wants to lay down their arms again to make peace. I guess you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Also,...

Episode 17 – Fantasy Island Pilot

Smiles everyone! Here is our new episode! This week we are talking about the Fantasy Island pilot movie. Mr. Roarke and Tatoo are here to give the first guests of the series the fantasies they want. I guess you'd call them fantasies. None of these are fantasies either of your podcast hosts would ask for, not by a long shot.

Episode 16 – Columbo, Prescription:Murder

This week we go way back to 1968. Neither of us were born yet, but we knew we had to start Columbo from the beginning. Yes, this week we are talking about Columbo, Prescription: Murder. Columbo doesn't have his wrinkled coat, and we don't see the old Peugeot, but this is still the same guy. He is a little more direct here, but Columbo still has that quality were he can make the murderer thinks he's not very bright, then he ends up trapping them in their own lies. Mike S. said this was the...

Who is the guy that is not Dirk Benedict playing Faceman? Why is B.A. hanging around kids in a junkyard? Why is Hannibal in a movie as a sea monster? Is Murdock really crazy?
