What show was this? It seems vaguely familiar from my long-ago childhood, but I can't place it. I would have found it very exciting as a little kid, but now it's laughable old, especially the IBM Selectric golf ball typing element.

You can say that again, charlotte.

Their minds could not even imagine the inkjet printer!

I used to like this show. Always figured it was really a live action rip-off of THUNDERBIRDS. If I recall, they had pretty hot women in this show and it used to make my youthful loins all tingly.

Time for some Land of the Giants clips (as opposed to Land of the Lost).

Don't know the show, but loved the shagadelic theme song.

I've seen the future, and Lil' Kim seems to be in it in her circa 1996 purple wig.

This was one of my favorite shows way back when, though I don't think I paid any attention to anything but the visuals. It was created by Gerry Anderson (I think) who also gave us The Thunderbirds and Space 1999. The show can be found in Hi-Def nowadays on cable.

A great theme song, but Barney Miller's my favorite.

And I don't mind saying I've got a man crush on Ed Bishop.
