My guest is the other founding member of Comedy Film Nerds!  He’s a comic, a surfer, a guy who loves cop shows from the 70’s. Specific enough for you? I now have more television to go back in time and watch. This one gets dark, people, I hope you enjoy!

    Just one more thing, Ma'am...(the best cop on '70s television, Peter Falk rest in glory)...as a non-radio person, you might not've ever heard the MANNIX parody, BLIMMIX, a running feature on Bob and Ray's late '60s and early '70s shows...MANNIX, which had been created by the COLUMBO guys Levinson and Link, started out as a series about a super-tech-heavy detective agency, then became Joe Mannix getting beat up every week...so BLIMMIX involved Blimmix having a philosophical argument with his adversaries, about why it was unnecessary to beat him up, an argument Blimmix would always lose...

    Self-correction! THE BILL was on UK commercial television, a Granada series...now, everyone can relax, thus enriched!

    Hmmm. The new comments format kills the paragraphs.

    Thing was, sadly, POLICE WOMAN kinda was RIZZOLI AND ISLES, only less Women-Powered...Dickinson was very insistent that she was Not a feminist, and I must admit, the way I remember it, it seemed like she was likely to be seriously threatened with rape fairly frequently in the show...which I suppose could be taken either way, as CHARLIE'S ANGELS-style provocation/exploitation or as commentary on women's estate at the time. (JOE FORRESTER was the other series which was spun off from POLICE STORY, a Joseph Wambaugh-driven production, which was excellent.)

    Excellent episode. Nice new look. (I fear I might've been the source for meretricious MAGNUM PI from H50 data.) LAW & ORDER is the longest-running US cop (half-cop?) series now (GUNSMOKE, I suppose, also ranks)...though nothing Yank is quite up to the BBC item THE BILL (visible on CBC in border country) nor the German TATORT (which USians can see as a subtitled SCENE OF THE CRIME as part of the International Mystery "wheel" on the small MHz WorldView network of public stations, such as KCET's second or third feed in LA). Though default right-wing, the original HAWAII FIVE-0 offered some surprising episodes, particularly during quasi-libertarian founding producer Leonard Freeman (ha?)'s term in charge, such as the one that made a strong argument for draft dodging, in 1973 or thereabouts (I can see CBS head William Paley grinding his teeth over that one, while eating it). Biggest downside of the series--any "interracial" couple was doomed. Either one of them was a crook or (worst sense) punk, or they were about to become prey. After Freeman's death, about halfway through the run, Jack Lord and others had more to say about the series and it got worse.

    I think the person who has made the most impression on me from THE DORK FOREST, whom I hadn't heard of at all before her appearance, would be Mary Mack. Thanks for that, thanks (as always) for the show, and, please, do get your rest (or am I projecting?).

    My goodness...I usually listen to these while working, as I did the Aisha Tyler GIRL ON GUY exception episode and DOUG LOVES MOVIES mentioning Maltin game potential with Elwood, but didn't check back into this one before getting ready to go...hmmm, wonder if I'll have anything to add once I dig in?
