I'm not sure those modern cars are big enough for Cannon. The Hummer might be, or maybe one of those big Ford Explorers.

Jim "got the girl" from time to time, though he mostly let the pretty women go at the end of the episode...it just wouldn't work out, or they were leaving town, or something.

He dated Beth Davenport (his attorney), but I don't think that was an active relationship in the show's timeline.

Geez, I remember all this about "The Rockford Files" and I can't remember where I put my keys from time to time...

You've got a duplicate message in the video.

Loving watching Wonder Woman, it's just as much fun now as when I was a kid.

However, watching it now I realize that she would NEVER have gotten cast today, she'd be considered 'fat' by current standards.

See, and I have never pictured Amazon warriors as skinny little women.

Lucy Lawless as Xena fits my bill.

Looks like they moved Lost in Space to the midnight slot and sank Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

I just realized the actress who played Beth Davenport (Rockford Files) was also in other Me-TV shows...but in one I remember a lot.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gretchen_Corbett

She was also on a Columbo episode about a fitness store chain owner who murdered the partner who was going to expose him as a fraud.

In that episode, she played the murderer's secretary/girlfriend, and answered the door to his home wearing a bikini, which really flustered Columbo.

The killer was played by Robert Conrad, who I talked to on the phone one Saturday morning in the 1990s.

On the other hand, watching these programs on MeTV allows me to fast-forward through the commercials and I don't have to pay extra since it's an OTA channel!

I was going to mention her and that episode of Columbo when someone brought up Rockford women. As for Columbo being befuddled by a woman a great example is Julie Newmar doing her yoga.

I would like to see them add the Flintstones but I guess whoever owns Turners stuff now wouldn't sell them the rights.

I am number 135 waiting to get the DVDs from the library, so should get in next June or so.

I am enjoying watching Steve McQueen in "Wanted: Dead or Alive (TV Series 1958–1961" and Clint Eastwood in Rawhide (1959–1966) on Me TV.

I recorded the entire series of Breaking Bad the other day. It will probably be 2035 before I get around to watching it, as I have a ton of F Troop episodes to watch first.

I'm pretty sure I don't get Me TV but I found one of the local digital tv stations that show nothing but old tv shows. On New Years day they broadcast the first two episodes of a number 60s tv shows. Green Acres still cracks me up. But I Dream Of Jeannie... Barbara Eden! Man, that was a gorgeous woman!

You must have been watching Antenna TV there is also Retro TV. Barbara Eden in the gold skin tight jumpsuit disguising herself as trophy is one of my favorites.

Watching Beverly Hillbillies realized Shug Fisher (Shorty Kellums) was the David Spade of his day.

I can't believe that you have F Troop and Breaking Bad in the same post. That is like mentioning Seinfeld and Homeboys in Outer Space in the same post. I can't imagine waiting to watch Breaking Bad because I have F Troop to watch. If I had a TV in my bathroom I would watch F Troop while sitting on the toilet.
Hmmmm... where could I put a TV in there??!!!

I don't have a TV in my bathroom, but I can see my bedroom TV from there. Talk about multitasking. Good F Troop tonight. Cpt. Parmenter got kidnapped by the Loco Brothers.

Is that what that little bear in your picture is doing with Charmin, multitasking?

We like ME TV too, we get it OTA from LA. I'm definitely in their target demographic (geezers).

My wife loves that channel, I despise that channel.

Yes I liked alot of the shows it currently airs, but really, once they have shown everything once, time to move on. Not for my wife of course, she has seen every single 30 minute episode of Marshal Dillon on Westerns about 30 times now, but if its on, she is watching

If you haven't seen it yet. This fall MeTV will be faster than a speeding bullet.

Superman


They also will be recruiting Jon and Ponch

CHiPs


They also will be going to Mayberry and go flying with the Black Sheep Squadron. They also will be returning to where everybody knows your name.

And finally this post will self destruct in five seconds.

Mission Impossible

I was hoping Superman would show up somewhere. My son is really into the 60s Batman at the moment. I don't have a DVR that can do OTA, though.
