Okay, it's become almost a standard opening for these, but I'm running a few days (okay a week) behind. Another foregone assumption, friend John contributed to this post. So without further adieu, I give you television as you knew it last week in 1978.
George Jefferson says, "Weezie, your lack of faith disturbs me."
One of the things that amazes me about 70's TV shows is while attempting to show compassion and understanding with a misunderstood and stigmatized condition, they still managed to fit the word "retarded" into the synposis.
I'm not bald! I'm Willie Ames!
More Sha-Na-Na! Make it stop!!
When I first saw "The Jeffersons" when I was a kid, I immediately recognized Mr. Bentley as "The Mad Painter" from Sesame Street. My brother argued it wasn't. Oh, 36 years may have passed, but sweet, sweet, vindication is now mine.
And that's a wrap on this, er, last week's TV Guide in 1978.
