Wish I got "Decades", @Shelbelle.  We get it on MeTV, but in the wee hours-- maybe 3:00 a.m. or 4:00 a.m. Eastern?

 

Roger Smith (Ann-Margret's husband in real life) was so dashing as one of the detectives.  And I've always had a soft spot for Efrem Zimabalist Jr., with his cosmopolitan air and that throaty, cultivated voice.

 

The show is a confection--  love the frothy, early Sixties ambiance...

@Shelbelle  Definitely!  My older sister had a big crush on Kookie; me not so much.  I liked Roger S. for looks.  Efrem had too much grease in his hair LOL!   I used to watch that all the time when it first aired, and occasionally will watch it on one of the oldies TV networks I get.   And yes, Kookie, Kookie lend me your comb.

 

I saw Byrnes on a Murder She Wrote (repeat recently),originally on about 20  or so yrs. after 77 was on, and he had lost a lot of his appeal IMO.

@oznell  and all of the ME -TV  watchers. 

 

Absolutely, YES !! YES !! 

 

All great -just great shows. ~~~~!

I  have found over seventy five  [ FINE ] percent, what I can define as worth watching. 

 

What a treat to actually have some TV sanity in the TV room, now.

 

77 Sunset Strip has to be something you never want to end.

@Shelbelle  Do you know how can I find out the Binge shows for the upcoming weekends?  I just recently found I have this channel.  I went to their website, but could only find the coming weekend.   I want to make sure I don't miss any weekends that I might be interested in.   I loved the Doris Day Show weekend a couple weekends ago.  She is just adorable.

Cricket Blake was a character on the TV show Hawaiian Eye. I think Robert Conrad was the star of that show.
