What a great subject topic. I'm there with ya MJG... I have to chime in with Steve Austin as well. My favorite connector episodes was when he found Bigfoot as really an automated robot programmed to divert humans from finding out that the mountains that he roamed through was actually an underground alien hive. Some notables on my list were:

The Bionic Woman
Charlie's Angels
Fantasy Island
Happy Days
MASH
Three's Company
Saturday Night Live
Sigmund and the Sea Monsters

For what its worth, and I never saw this show, I heard Bill Laimbeer interviewed on ESPN radio, and apparently he was a Sleestak for some or one episode. Just some fodder for you.

As far as shows, I wasn't around in the 70s, but I gotta say I was into Star Trek when I was younger. And Three's Company was just a hit with me, I probably have seen every episode. How many times can you use the same "two people are talking in one room while another person in a different room overhears what sounds like a provacative, sexual conversation, but turns out to be completely innocent when said person comes barging into the room" theme. But it was funny every time. Maybe a seperate poll, but who was the best landlord? I say Roper hands down.


Dangit, I looked this up and it just misses the cut (1965-1969), but Wild, Wild West was superb. Arty was the 'Q' of the wild frontier. And put on some good disguises.

One more that barely qualifies (1966-1973) is Mission Impossible. I liked this one too.

Obviously I watched reruns of all these, but still, enjoyed nonetheless.

To whoever mentioned "Three's Company", that was one of the only shows from that era that I really watched. I'm a little too young for this topic (not dogging any of you more mature, wiser fellows :wink:) but that one blonde from Three's Company had me tuning in just to drool over her (not Suzanne Summers).

Anyone know who I'm talking about?

You know, i think his character today would still work. Actually, I think the show would still work, with a little updating. I'm surprised that it isn't on in syndication more often.

Now that you mention it, the show itself isn't duplicated, but Quagmire on Family Guy is pretty much Larry Dallas. :D

I thought it was hilarious that Will Ferrell's Federal Wildlife Marshall character in "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" was named Marshall Willenholly. That joke was probably lost on the folks who have no idea about the significance of this table:

(on a side note, I remember hearing rumors that Ferrell is working on doing a movie verison of Land of the Lost in the near future)

Never had TBS in the 70's & early 80's. Only ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS at home. At my grandmother's, she got WPIX-11 and WWOR-9 out of New York too. Talk about options!

I believe she was also in "Silver Spoons" but that was a couple of years too late to discuss in a 70's TV thread.
