Wildly Zipping by

I don't want my blog to get stale.
I'm here only to change the words.
I got a thrill went I went to the library tonight. I found a 7 DVD box set of the WILD WILD WEST TV SERIES!!
I loved that series.

My cousin and I would call each other on the phone and gossip about what we had just watched. It was FUN. Made for great memories too.
Loved Dr. Loveless, what a great villain. He may have been small in stature but ginormous in creating wicked and devious plots.

Look at that wild eyed enthusiasm!

Of course, even as young as I was, I had the hots for Agent James West.
The man with the cool shoes that
predates Get Smart's gadgetry.
At least West's shoes were lethal.
I mean, he was the MAN.

The Alpha.

The male with the charisma to charm even the most jaded lady's petticoats up and off.

Just look how he dressed ... short waist coat to frame his flat stomach and what had to be a nice chest covered in fine fabrics.
Only the best for the bestest spy in the West.

LOL - did you know its debut was in 1965 - I was so cute back then. *wink*

I can't wait to share with my kids the wonder that was the Wild West.

What TV show or Series are you excited to share with YOUR family from your youth??

You're going to laugh, but Scooby Doo was my absolute favorite. Then there's Wonder Woman. (I thought she was SO cool and SHE rescued the guy for a change!) I also like *blushes* C.H.I.P.s. *G* And not for Poch either. I'm so pitiful. *G*
Let us know how your kids liked the Wild Wild West.

Well... we're working through "Little House on the Prarie" and, don't tell, but I'm buying her the first season of "Flipper" for Christmas! LOL...

DH and I love "Family Ties", so I'm considering the first season of that as one of his gifts.

I LOVE that they're releasing all this old stuff.

Family Affair would be one series that I would share with my niece and nephew. I also enjoyed Big Valley and the Mod Squad.

I agree with Dru. I adored Family Affair and would love to share it with my kids. Only problem is, their attention spans are shot to hades. If it doesn't have guns and fire in it, they're not interested. It's a shame.

Stale blog, stale blog!

Oooh, I loved James West!

Also loved The Big Valley, Batman, Dark Shadows, Lancer (little known western), The Hardy Boys, etc. The list is too long.

Michele said...

NO, Brandy, I'm not going to laugh.
I used to DRESS up as Wonder Woman, LOL!
I had the boots!
I wish I had them still!

Flipper! I haven't seen that in YEARS!
I loved LHOTP growing up, but I can't seem to rewatch it now.
Very strange.

Big Valley? I LOVED NICK! Not so much Heath, although we know how popular HE became. I guess I liked men in leather, even then. LOL
And the Mod Squad Theme Song was Awesome!

Hi Tanya! I remember Famiy Affair. Victor French and Brian Keith.... had the hots for the older men ..well, NOT perhaps Mr. French LOLOL Sebastian Cabbot.
Great Voice.
Your kids will discover things in their own time.
We hope.
Yes, Marianne, I know, I know....
It's this going back to work full time kind of thing...... ACK

Parker Stevenson in the Hardy Boys!
I liked the in-charge older guy thing. LOL
Batman? Men in Tights... *grin*
What's not to like?
I want to be Julie Newmar's Cat Woman.
My kids are LOVING the Wild Wild West!
I'm thrilled. :-)
