Welcome to my A-Z list of 2016.
This year, I'll be recalling some of my favourite programs from television, via A-Z, of course.
How many of these do you remember?
Were these before your time?
This blog post has been written in front of a live studio audience.
1971-1977 / Electric Company featuring: Morgan Freeman, Judy Graubart, Rita Moreno, Jim Boyd & Spiderman
There were only two things that really excited me in school. Recess and seeing the TV wheeled into the classroom. This meant we were going to be watching TV. When I was in first grade, this was a regular event. Of course, we were not watching the teachers favourite soap opera, we were watching the Electric Company. It was informative, but it was fun.
1972-1977 / Emergency! featuring: Randolph Mantooth, Kevin Tighe, Bobby Troup & Julie London
This was probably one of the first drama series that I was seriously interested in watching. Two of the main stars were paramedics and that really held my interest. Well what 6 year old boy isn't impressed with the flashing lights and sirens seen in each episode.
1994-2009 / ER featuring: Anthony Edwards, George Clooney, Noah Wyle, Eriq La Salle, Laura Innes, Alex Kingston, John Stamos, and many others.
I seriously loved this show. In fact, I never missed an episode the 15 years it was on. Yes, there was the year I stopped watching for awhile, but then I caught another episode and tracked down the previous season and watched it. Not something you could do in 1955. I cried when Dr. Green died, and I was elated when I later learned Alex Kingston was going to become a semi-regular in Doctor Who.
