Remembering a couple 1970s TV shows and commercials

BanacekSeasonOneA car enthusiast’s off-topic “Today’s Useless Tweet” got me thinking about old television shows that I enjoyed while growing up. I’m sure almost everyone my age flirts with nostalgia and can go on indefinitely with memories of their youth?

His Banacek share (good show) and the George Peppard memory, which for me will always be the A-Team and his character Col. John “Hannibal” Smith’s line,I love it when a plan comes together”, had me remembering a few other shows. One that came to mind was a favorite WWII Navy aviation-based show: Baa Baa Black Sheep. I need to see if that is streaming somewhere?


John Rowe also mentioned that he was streaming the old show on IMDB TV and that it has commercials and saying… “but for some reason they don’t bother me.” My thought was, it would be nice if they were “old commercials” since it would be interesting to remember them. His reply back was, “as long as they are car commercials”. HA … for sure … definely better than marketing cigarettes!
