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.
1974-1980 / Rockford Files featuring: James Garner, Noah Berry Jr.
I was pretty young when this was on the air. As such, I always assumed the show was called Rockford Files because it took place in Rockford, Illinois. It doesn't. His name is Rockford. Something I didn't realize for a long time.
1979-1980 / the Roper's featuring: Normal Fell, Audra Lindsey, Jeffrey Tambor, Patricia McCormack
A spin-off from Three's Company that should never have happened. Sure it was a campy comedy like Three's Company, but there wasn't much to draw me in, that I didn't get from other TV shows at the time. Patricia McCormack was about the only thing to watch it for.
1983 - 2006 / Reading Rainbow featuring: Levar Burton
A few years before Star Trek the Next Generation came along, Geordi La Forge was teaching me that reading could be fun. It was about this time I started to realize I liked to write. Perhaps some day, someone will read one of my books.
This A-Z list has been brought to you today, by....
