As I suspected, I have been less than productive in posting these Fall Preview issues. They're quite labor intensive with all the scanning and cropping, but I'll see if I can't get at least one more posted this season. Today's issue comes from 1977. Enjoy!
If a man in knee pants and an ascot sidles up to you while you're fishing, RUN!
I recall my mother liked "We've Got Each Other". She liked it because the leads were, in her words, "so ugly you gotta like them." I think in better terms, she meant they didn't have movie star looks and were more relatable.
Wow. "Lust Bucket". Strong words, TV Guide. Strong Words.
This was the first season of "The Bionic Woman" on NBC, having moved from ABC, and it's last season overall. The Bionic Dog "Max", short for "Maximillion" because he cost a million dollars to bionicize (I'm pretty sure that's a word), appeared in the first episode and was intended to be a spin off series that was never "green-lighted". If you care to watch "Max" in action, watch below. Are his feet making that sound???
1977 seems a little late to still be hyping sharks on "The Six Million Dollar Man", "Jaws" having been released in 1975. Oh wait. This is THE year. More on that later.
Wow. "The Making of Star Wars" vs the premier of "The New Adventures of Wonder Woman". I honestly can't recall which one I chose. I was going to say, "Oh, the days before VCR", but it wasn't. But it was the days before our family had a VCR.
Is that William Conrad narrating?
"I don't have lung cancer. I have lip and gum cancer."
And that's all for the new Fall Season for 1977. Up next, 1980. What happened to 1978 and '79? Their time will come.
