    "By now my lungs were bursting for air." -Mike Nelson, every episode of Sea Hunt

    I saw Sky King for the first time in decades recently. Jeeze. Penny was annoying. Didn't she get kidnapped in almost every episode? I would have let them keep her. The plane was real cool though. I've always dug Cessna 310's because of that show. Sky seemed like a guy who would hang out with western swing bands.

    I loved The Man From U.N.C.L.E. as a kid. I'm almost afraid to watch it now. Does it hold up? I liked the Warner Bros. detective shows. 77 Sunset Strip, Hawaiian Eye, Surfside 6. And people complain about CSI franchises. Connie Stevens was my first crush. She has a house in Jackson Hole near where our friends live. I've glimpsed her in her car, but haven't met her yet. I'd imagine she's real old.

    I watched one for the first time it definitely has a different feel and pace than the Harry Morgan era.

    i watched fantasy island yesterday and one of the guests was chuck conners (the rifleman)
    pretty hokey show but watchable.

    the story was chuck conners was a big game hunter bored with hunting game so he wanted to hunt Mr Roarke.
    He tried poisoning his food, planting a bomb in his golf putt hole-return thingy (whatever thats called)
    finally he had to kidnap Tattoo to lure Roarke into the jungle....I wont give away the ending....

    It's interesting to note that Gene Roddenberry, of Star Trek fame, wrote 24 episodes of "Have Gun - Will Travel". Also, Robert Altman directed several episodes of "Combat", and other TV shows like "Peter Gunn" and "Bonanza".

    I watch Cannon, The Rockford Files and Columbo along with Hawaii Five-O and Renegade (great show from the 1990s).

    Most of my watching is done via DVD, but I have all of the seasons for the shows above, aside from Cannon which doesn't have all of them available.

    By chance, I turned on The Rifleman, specifically, "Three-Legged Terror", (original airing: 4/20/59). Guest star is Dennis Hopper, who got blacklisted about that time, subjected to playing bit parts in TV & movies, till his breakout, the iconic, Easy Rider, in 1969.
