    70s TV Shows

    In this spot I'll put a list of shows. But that needs some work. I'd rather get into the material first.

    One that made a big impression on me in 1975 was Welcome Back Kotter. A show about a Brooklyn high school and a class of various assorted misfits all collected together and referred to, for generations, as the "Sweat Hogs". They were a close-knit group from various races, ethnicities and talents. This was a time I remember well. In the 70s most of our conversations were not about race and politics!

    Gabe Kotter returns to his old high school -- this time as a teacher. He's put in charge of a class full of unruly remedial students called the Sweathogs. They're a bunch of wisecracking, underachieving and incorrigible students, and it takes all of Mr. Kotter's humor -- and experience as a former Sweathog himself -- to deal with his class.

      First time I've seen this post...forgot how funny this show was, my parents saw no humor in it at all. Which is why I only got to watch it after I bought my little black and white 13" tv for my room w/ my yard mowing $$$. Thanks for sharing

    Kolchak: The Night Stalker was popular with us boys in school. I was maybe around 9 or 10 when I first saw it. One of the classic TV channels did a marathon of The Night Stalker a few years ago and the funny thing is I was still liked it. The effects weren't great but Darren McGavin is a fantastic actor...he can make any role believable.

    I couldn't find the English intro, this one is in Spanish. But the music is the same.

      How about a cop show where the lead characters never pull their weapons? Jon and Ponch, two California Highway Patrol Officers (or CHiPs), never once used their guns on the series. That wouldn't work today.

        OMG CHiPs was SO fucking HORRIBLE. Every fad in California, from roller disco to ultralights ended up in that show. Eric Estrada continued the same limited dialog capability that he gave to the movie Midway. The other guy, the Iowa farmboy-looking stooge, NO idea what happened to him.

        I remember the term chips being added to the lexicon of the time, and I recall it was derisive, but I don't recall it specifically enough to know why.
