  1. Jim, I don't blame you for giving yourself a breather after your excellent epic MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS saga, but I'm delighted that you chose to discuss the Warner Bros. TV series from the 1950s and early '60s! I only discovered them myself on reruns on what was then the American Life Network. I just loved 77 SUNSET STRIP (snap fingers twice here :-)), MAVERICK. SURFSIDE SIX, and many more! Glad to hear MAVERICK — and others soon, I hope! — is now available from the gang at Warner Archive!

    By the way, Jim, not to shameless, but I hope your batteries will be be recharged in time for our upcoming THE BEST HITCHCOCK MOVIES (THAT HITCHCOCK NEVER MADE) Blogathon, starting July 7th and ending July 12th! It feels far away, but it'll be here before we know it. Looking forward to your STATE SECRET post! Rest up and come back soon, my friend!

  2. Jim, I'm a big fan of the 1950s/early '60s Warner Bros. TV series, so I'm very pleased that you're giving it a shoutout! I had always heard about MAVERICK, 77 SUNSET STRIP, SURFSIDE SIX, and other Warner series, so I was delighted when they turned up on TV a few years back! They were always great fun, very much like mini-movies, and look at all the great stars who got their feet wet in those great shows. Thanks for the shoutout to the Warner Bros. folks!

  3. Ha. Ha. I know exactly what you are going through. I haven't done a thing since the charming UPS man dropped off "Maverick: The Complete First Season" except for watch "Maverick: The Complete First Season".
