Brisco County Jr. needs to have another season or two, kind of like how they are adding on to the Twin Peaks series. That would be so cool. But it would have to have Bruce Campbell. Also, I want a Chilito now.

I most definitely agree.  I think the fact that Brisco was in a death slot on Friday nights didn't help it at all in the ratings, but I found the writing to be very good.  It was a fun show.

Since it's championship time in football, we took a look back at one of the great ways to spend time in the 70's and 80's......Electric Football!


And rounding out this week's entries were a look back at the cartoon, Voltron:  Defender of the Universe, and we also looked at the cultural icon Vanilla Ice.

The best way to sum up my childhood - Adventures in Space.

Quite frankly, if I put you guys in my time machine and took you all back to the years 1959 to 1963 you would all be shocked at how much popular media focused on the future, the world of the 21st century and space travel.

So it's no surprise that I spent quite a few Saturday Mornings with Scott McCloud, "Space Angel".

After more than 50 years, "Space Angel" seems really cool in a retro space age kinda way. The big man with a beard is named Taurus, very unusual as most TV characters were normal weight and clean shaven at the time. Actually there are quite a few surprises about this old cartoon, so I'm guessing that "Space Angel" may be worth keeping around.
