    The Dukes of Hazzard is a comedy series that aired on the CBS from 1979 to 1985 about "The Duke Boys", cousins Bo and Luke Duke, who live in a rural part of the fictional Hazzard County, Georgia with their attractive cousin Daisy and their wise old Uncle Jesse, as they race around in their customized 1969 Dodge Charger stock car, christened (The) General Lee, evading crooked county commissioner Boss Hogg and his inept county sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane, and always managing to get caught in the middle of the various escapades and incidents that often occur in the area. The Dukes of Hazzard was part of America's redneck fetish in the mid-to-late 1970s, otherwise evident in popular songs, movies, and television shows highlighting fast cars, truckers, citizens' band radio, moonshine, irreverent hicks, and clueless lawmen. Created by writer-producer Gy Waldron and inspired by his own 1975 bootlegging comedy, Moonrunner's, Dukes milked seven seasons of material from the tale of a Deep South family of reformed whiskey-makers and their running feud with a greedy impresario and his chief lackey, a buffoonish, venal sheriff.

    While every episode is a variation on the previous one, predictability is a virtue in Dukes. The series pilot, "One Armed Bandits," finds Luke and Bo, with help from their sexy cousin, Daisy (Catherine Bach), diverting slot machines (smuggled into Hazzard County by Roscoe and Boss Hogg) to sundry watering holes where they can raise money for Bo's girlfriend's charity. In "Money to Burn," Boss Hogg tries to frame Bo and Luke for robbing an armored truck, while in "Deputy Dukes," the unarmed guys are forced by Roscoe to escort a deadly prisoner from one town to another. The Dukes hit back in "Daisy's Song," investigating a scam that took Daisy for $50 and implicates, of course, Boss Hogg and Roscoe. [​IMG] CBS

    Theme Song Lyrics & Opening Intro
    "The Dukes of Hazzard (Good Ol' Boys)"
    Written and sung by Waylon Jennings

    Just the good ol' boys,
    Never meanin' no harm,
    Beats all you've ever saw
    Been in trouble with the law since the day they was born.
    Straight'nin' the curve,
    Flat'nin' the hills.
    Someday the moutain might get 'em, but the law never will.
    Makin' their way,
    The only way they know how,
    That's just a little bit more than the law will allow.
    Just good ol' boys,
    Wouldn't change if they could,
    Fightin' the system like a true modern day Robin Hood.

    The Prisoner.

    I saw this show only a few times, back in the late ‘60s. My older brother was watching it. For some reason, a few things about it left quite an impression on me, foremost of which were those attacking giant bubbles. For some reason, this show never seems to get much mention at all.

    Adam-12 is a television police drama which followed two police officers of the Los Angeles Police Department, Pete Malloy and Jim Reed, as they patrolled the streets of Los Angeles in their patrol unit, 1-Adam-12.
    Created by Jack Webb of Dragnet fame, follow two Los Angeles police officers as they patrol the streets of Southern California. Adam-12 was the first series to realistically portray the joys/frustrations of being a police officer in the late 1960's-early 1970's. This attention to detail made the show a catalyst for uncounted numbers of people to enter the law enforcement/EMS agencies when they became adults. Martin Milner stars as Pete Malloy, a veteran cop whose new partner (following the death of the previous one) is Jim Reed (Kent McCord), a rookie who's more than a little wet behind the ears. The show follows them as they make the rounds in their police black & white, dealing with all manner of circumstances, from the mundane (traffic violations, petty domestic disputes, noise complaints) to the monstrous (murder, drugs, child abuse, suicide).

    [​IMG]
    Each about 25 minutes long, the episodes chronicle the quotidian vicissitudes of these men in uniform, as opposed to the detectives, forensic experts, lawyers, and such who populate today's cop shows. Whatever the storyline, the tone is fairly tame, with none of the graphic violence common to later cop shows. And while the '65 Watts riots had already taken place, Rodney King, the Rampart scandal, and numerous other ugly events were far in the future. Thus Adam-12 evinces little or none of the now-vast divide (most of it racially based) that exists between the LAPD and much of the community; on this show, the cops are the good guys, without much nuance (which helps explain its popularity with real police officers). That's certainly not all bad; Adam-12's realism (for its time) and lack of pretension are refreshing, and the show is looser and not nearly as humorless as Dragnet. [​IMG] NBC

    All in the Family is a sitcom that aired on CBS from 1971, to 1979. In September 1979, a new show, Archie Bunker's Place, picked up where All in the Family had ended. This sitcom lasted another four years, ending its run in 1983.
    [​IMG]Boy, the way the Beaver played. Ricky Nelson made the hit parade. Voices they were seldom raised. Those were the days. And then, on January 12, 1971, America met the Bunkers, and sitcoms would never be the same. The Bunkers were TV's first dysfunctional family: blue-collar bigot Archie (the late Carroll O'Connor in his iconic role), his long-suffering but loving wife Edith (Jean Stapleton), "little goil" Gloria (Sally Struthers), and her liberal husband "Meathead" Mike (Rob Reiner). Series creator Norman Lear broke near every rule and taboo in adapting the British series "Till Death Do Us Part" for American television. The series pilot, "Meet the Bunkers," was a bracing shocker that dared to find humor in prejudice. Archie dispenses racial epithets and ethnic slurs. Mike and Gloria clearly have an active sex life, while Edith, in the pilot at any rate, is more "pip" than "dingbat." In its first season, the series refused to, in Archie's words, "stifle" itself, tackling such hot-button topics as homophobia ("Judging Books by Covers"), racism ("Lionel Moves into the Neighborhood"), feminism ("Gloria Discovers Women's Lib"), and the generation gap (the touching "Success Story," with William Windom as Archie's former army buddy, a successful man who is revealed to be estranged from his son).

    Theme Song Lyrics & Opening Intro
    "Those Were the Days," by Strouse and Adams, sung at the opening of each show by Archie and Edith

    Boy the way Glen Miller played
    Songs that made the hit parade.
    Guys like us we had it made,
    Those were the days.
    And you knew who you were then,
    Girls were girls and men were men,
    Mister we could use a man
    Like Herbert Hoover again.
    Didn't need no welfare state,
    Everybody pulled his weight.
    Gee our old LaSalle ran great.
    Those were the days.

    "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" by Paul Henning

    Come 'n listen to my story 'bout a man named Jed
    A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed
    And then one day, he was shootin' at some food
    And up through the ground come a bubblin' crude
    Oil, that is, black gold, Texas tea
    Well, the first thing you know, old Jed's a millionaire
    Kin folk said, Jed, move away from there
    Said, Californy is the place you oughta be
    So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly
    Hills, that is, swimmin' pools, movie stars
    Well, now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin
    They would like to thank you folks for kindly droppin' in
    You're all invited back again to this locality
    To have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality
    Hillbilly, that is, set a spell, take your shoes off
    Y'all come back now, hear?

    The Jeffersons is a sitcom that aired on CBS from 1975 until 1985 that chronicled the Afican-American Jefferson family who had recently moved up the socioeconomic ladder. The Jeffersons is the longest-running sitcom with a predominantly African American cast in the history of American television.
    "We're moving on up, to the East Side, to a deee-luxe apartment in the sky" ... This spin-off from All in the Family was about literal upward mobility - African American couple George and Louise Jefferson move into a swanky high-rise building. George was an obstreperous, often rude guy who thought his wealth should get him anywhere he wanted to go. His wife was more level-headed and often cut him down to size when his schemes went awry. The cast included their son, Lionel, neighbors Tom and Helen Willis, maid Florence and other friends and neighbors.

    "Movin' on Up" by Jeff Barry and Ja'net Dubois

    Well we're movin on up,
    To the east side.
    To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
    Movin on up
    To the east side.
    We finally got a piece of the pie.
    Fish don't fry in the kitchen;
    Beans don't burn on the grill.
    Took a whole lotta tryin'
    Just to get up that hill.
    Now we're up in teh big leagues
    Gettin' our turn at bat.
    As long as we live, it's you and me baby
    There ain't nothin wrong with that.
    Well we're movin on up,
    To the east side.
    To a deluxe apartment in the sky.
    Movin on up
    To the east side.
    We finally got a piece of the pie.

    Good Times is a sitcom that aired 1974 until 1979 on the CBS television network. Good Times is a spin-off of Maude, which was itself a spin-off of All in the Family.

    hqdefault.jpg

    Florida Evans was originally Maude Findlay's maid until, in the spring of 1974, she got a show of her own. Florida and James Evans were lower middle-class blacks living with their three children in a high-rise ghetto on the south side of Chicago. J.J. was the oldest, Thelma was a year younger than he, and Michael was five years younger than she, 10 when the series started.

    Trying to make ends meet on the erratic income provided by James, who was always in and out of jobs, made life difficult, but there was always plenty of love in the family. J.J. was an accomplished amateur painter who, though going to trade school, was always looking for some get-rich-quick scheme. His catch phrase "Dy-No-Mite" became very popular in the mid 1970s.

    "Good Times" by Jime Gilstrap and Blinky Williams

    Good Times.
    Any time you meet a payment.
    Good Times.
    Any time you need a friend.
    Good Times.
    Any time you're out from under.
    Not getting hastled, not getting hustled.
    Keepin' your head above water,
    Making a wave when you can.
    Temporary lay offs.
    Good Times.
    Easy credit rip offs.
    Good Times.
    Scratchin' and surviving.
    Good Times.
    Hangin in a chow line
    Good Times.
    Ain't we lucky we got 'em
    Good Times.

    One of the most successful television series ever, I Love Lucy is a sitcom starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley that ran from 1951 to 1957 on CBS.
    [​IMG]Lucy Ricardo is the wacky wife of Cuban bandleader Ricky Ricardo. Living in New York, (623 East 68th Street, Aprtment 3-B), Ricky tries to succeed in show business while Lucy -- always trying to help -- usually manages to get in some kind of trouble that drives Ricky crazy. Their best friends are Fred and Ethel Mertz, who are also their landlords. The two couples were almost inseparable, whatever the Ricardos did, so did the Mertzs. Usually, Ethel becomes Lucy's less-than-willing partner in crime. Ricky and Lucy welcomed little Ricky in 1953, whose birth was a national TV event. Later in the show's run, the Ricardos (and the Mertzes) moved to Hollywood, where Ricky tried to become a movie star. [​IMG] CBS

    STORYLINE
    The series sort of combined the then very popular medical show genre with an action adventure twist.

    Paramedic John Gage (Randolph Mantooth) and Paramedic Roy DeSoto (Kevin Tighe) were specially trained fire fighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD). It was in the infancy of the EMT program and any medical emergencies had to be supervised via radio link with a doctor at Rampart General Hospital. These docs were Dr. Kelly Brackett (Robert Fuller), Dr. Joe Early (Bobby Troup) and Chief Nurse Dixie McCall (Julie London). Together they responded to life and death emergencies all over Los Angeles County.

    Trivia Note: This was a Jack Webb production, Julie London was Webb’s ex-wife and was currently married to Bobby Troup (Dr. Joe Early) Troup also appeared in roles in Dragnet and Adam-12 both of which were Webb productions.

    What made this series so good was its authenticity. Every episode was based on a true story from real fire departments log books. The shooting of every technical response scene had a LACoFD technical officer to advise and instruct the directors. Some actual LACoFD personnel were used as actors appearing in the show as themselves. The equipment used for the series were real fire trucks and vehicles and the locations shown were actual firehouses and hospitals with only the names changed. Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe had to attend LACoFD paramedic training and do extensive “ride along’s” on actual EMT calls. The dispatcher heard (and seen in a couple of episodes) was an actual LACoFD dispatcher who had absolute authority to change any script involving the dispatcher to reflect the language that would have actually been used.

    Emergency was considered a spin-off from Adam-12 which itself was a spin-off from Dragnet. Although the show was canceled in 1977 in the following couple of years a series of six TV movies were made which involved at least most of the major cast members. Two of the movies were meant to introduce new shows however the spin-offs were never picked up by any network.

    Everybody Loves Raymond is a sitcom that ran on CBS from 1996 to 2005. Many of the situations from the show are based on the real-life experiences of lead actor Ray Romano, creator/producer Phil Rosenthal and the show's writing staff. The main characters on the show are also loosely based on Romano's and Rosenthal's real-life family members.
    Everybody Loves Raymond revolves around Ray Barone, a successful sportswriter living on Long Island with his wife, Debra, daughter, Ally, and twin sons, Geoffrey and Michael. That's the good news. The bad news? Ray's meddling parents, Frank and Marie, live directly across the street and embrace the motto "Su casa es mi casa," infiltrating their son's home to an extent unparalleled in television history. Frank's favorite expression, "Holy Crap," is shouted at regular intervals, and Marie's "cooking advice" is less than appreciated by Debra. Brother Robert, a divorced policeman, is constantly moving in and out of his parents' house, and loves to drop over and resent Ray's successful career and happy family life. Ray and Debra just wish someone would knock once in a while.

    Doug Heffernan is just your ordinary deliveryman for the International Parcel Service, but his family is anything but normal. Along with his wife Carrie, Doug lives with Carrie's father Arthur (Seinfeld regular Jerry Stiller), who is a few cards short of a full deck. Arthur is known for his incoherent outbursts and misplaced anger.

    Doug and Carrie cling to their loving relationship to get them through, while trying to find privacy and peace in a house with an active senior citizen. In the first season, Doug and Carrie thought they had the solution when Arthur took a job at the local pizza place. But, their private time was short lived when Arthur lost the job after only one weekend. In the second season, they resigned themselves to the fact that Arthur was a permanent fixture in the basement and were not too concerned when a lack of heat brought him upstairs. That was until Arthur, of course, realized the comforts he was missing down in the cellar.

    Fortunately, Doug and Carrie both have jobs to get them out of the house. And, although it may not provide them time together, it does give each of them the breathing room they need. Doug is always on the road in his parcel delivery van and Carrie's a world away in Manhattan where she works as a legal secretary. For balance, Doug turns to his three buddies, who each have their own unique perspective to share: Deacon, Doug's best friend, is levelheaded and the cool voice of reason when Doug gets upset. Spence, a toll-booth operator, finally has his own apartment and has moved out of his mother's house. Richie, a fire fighter.

    While affable Doug is in the garage watching the latest sports with his buddies, Carrie, strong-willed and fairly opinionated, takes refuge in her female friendships - girls that give her that all-important female perspective, as well as a shoulder to lean on in a house, basement and garage full of men.

    "Baby All My Life I Will Be Driving Home To You" by Billy Vera

    My eyes are getting weary
    My back is gettin' tight
    I'm sitting here in traffic
    On the Queensboro Bridge tonight.
    But I don't care cause all I wanna do
    I cash my check and drive right home to you.
    Cause baby all my life
    I will be driving home to you.
