Some Television Notes As Escape

August 8, 2017

Some Television Notes

In an attempt to get away from the mistakes and any sports, some brief notes while watching some old and older television shows.

A detective on “Murder She Wrote,” an terrific approximately 35 year old show starring the great Angela Lansbury, is named Gerard, in fact Lieutenant Gerard, I believe. This is homage to the great 50 plus year old show, “The Fugitive,” which starred David Janssen, and featured Barry Morse as “Lieutenant Gerard.”

A great actor, George Macready, turned in a fine performance maybe 55 or more years ago, as a vengeful judge on “The Rifleman,” which starred former Brooklyn Dodgers’ player, Chuck Connors.

A newer still current show “Ray Donovan” is fascinating, not as great as in earlier seasons but still great.

I watched the very first episode, usually a good idea when possible and I can see how the story arc and characters were building. I have the 20 20 hindsight, credit the writer, Ann Biderman, for great foresight.


Nearly fifty years later, I will try to keep “running” for justice but do so without Mr. Janssen’s strength.
