My favorites for "freezing cars" are Mannix, Rockford, and Streets of San Francisco. Those aged really well and you can get the whole series in boxed sets. Naked City and Dragnet 69 are kind of slow. Absolutely fed up with PC indoctrination on all the current network programming. (Well, Jay Leno's Garage is OK). Sure miss Johnny Carson!
Love the old shows from the 60's & 70's that were sponsored by car companies. Major Nelson on I Dream of Jeannie almost always drove a GTO. Ford sponsored quite a few shows too, but I can't think of any now. I'm trying to remember if Chevrolet sponsored any...
Anyone remember what Broadway Crawford used to say into the microphone when he was done with a message?
"21-50 - Bye"
Streets, other shows, they are the best, with not many new shows even coming close. Just watched the Wednesday night trilogy last evening, I think the best of the new stuff, Chicago Med, FD, PD. Cannot stand "Counting Cars", way too much of nothing, and nobody good in it.
Emergency! was my all time favorite show! I saved some pocket change and ordered the Emergency dodge truck and Johnny and Roy dolls from Sears catalog
when I got the truck I was very disappointed with the quality,,I was so sad,,the truck was just molded and was hollow inside,,and the detail was lacking on the helmets and gear...
I was so upset I sent it back!
I still remember that day like it was yesterday, that's how much that cheap toy impacted me,,
I still have a sketch I made of all the firemen in their helmets in gradeschool,,,
I used to watch emergency when I came home from grade school. It was on first then Get Smart followed by All In the Family. Great old shows. I can't stomach watching new sitcoms and dramas. We got rid of our satellite TV last year and now stream whatever we like for much less $$. Those old shows would offend so many of today's snowflakes there would be lineups at every safe space. The planet is screwed gentlemen. Totally screwed.
