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.
1973-1978 / Six Million Dollar Man featuring: Lee Majors, Richard Anderson, Martin E Brooks
Playing the Six Million Dollar Man was almost a daily activity on the school playground. But then the fights would break out because we all wanted to be the Six Million Dollar Man. So there we were, six million kids all playing the six million dollar man together and we each had a different story why we were also the six million dollar man. I should really write a fan-fiction based on this.
1972-1977 / Sanford & Son featuring: Red Foxx, Demond Wilson
Add a laugh track and I'll watch just about anything. Truth be told though, I rather enjoyed this series. The humour, at the time, entertained me and the stories were interesting. It was something different. Years later, I would use the theme song as the ring-tone for my brother. (See entry for the Odd Couple)
1976 - 1984 / SCTV featuring: John Candy, Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Rick Moranis, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, Dave Thomas
I discovered this show on late night re-runs. Every episode was so hilarious and I knew some of the performers. As time went on, I came to know more and more of the actors as they went on to some of my faovurite TV shows and films. My ultimate favourite skit was the Jeopardy based, Half Wits.
