Got nothing

I got nothing for today, so here, watch the into to a great old TV show with Robert Conrad and lots of Corsairs.

TV was so cool once.


  1. Wow, I had forgotten John Larroquette was on that show.

    Cannell and Bellisario provided a lot of entertaining TV back in the day. Now it's all 'reality' shows.


  2. @ The Donald: Yep. Apparently Night Court's Dan Fielding got his law degree via the GI Bill.

  3. Bellisario does NCIS now, which I believe is one of the highest rated shows on TV right now. He's always done good stuff.

    I loved Baa Baa Black Sheep when I was a kid. However, I didn't notice the poor production value then. The show doesn't hold up well these days if you ask me. Its not the subject matter, but the poor production of the show and some of the script writing.

  4. Yea but the REAL Black Sheep airmen hated the show. They said the only thing true was they flew Corsairs.

  5. Every time I see an old clip of Robert Conrad I can't help but remember the old Eveready battery commercials he used to do..

    "Go ahead. Knock this battery off my shoulder. I dare you..." :)

    A Badass in his day.

    No, not really.
