    In The Bad News Bears, we meet Morris Buttermaker, a former minor league baseball player who was trying to make a living as a swimming pool cleaner. One of his clients didn't pay him, and he drove the client's car into the swimming pool. Instead of doing jail time, he volunteered to coach the baseball team at Hoover Junior High School. This would be something that Mr. Buttermaker would regret in the long run.moreless

    Booker T. Freeman and David Hall were 9-year-old boys growing up in the rural Southern community of Palmerstown during the Depression of the 1930's. They were best friends despite the fact that Booker T. was black and David was white. Booker T.'s father, Luther, was the town blacksmith and David's father, W.D., was the local grocer. Diana was Booker T.'s older sister and Willy-Joe was David's older brother. Because of the friendship between the two boys, their families had become very close, despite the racial prejudice's prevalent at the time. Most of what happened in Palmerstown was seen through the eyes of the two young boys. Palmerstown, U.S.A. was co-produced by veteran TV producer Norman Lear and award-winning author, Alex Haley. For Haley, this series was somewhat autobiographical, since he had grown up with a close white friend in an integrated Southern town during the Depression. In March 1981, the title of the show was shortened to just Palmerstown.moreless

    CBS (ended 1986)
    Not well known because it used to air on CBS at 4:00 P.M. ET, when some affiliates broke for local programming, Body Language was a charades game show. Nothing new, since the charades concept had been done on the CTV program It's Your Move years before as well as another Goodson-Todman game, Showoffs (ABC 1975). But men like Steve Ryan added new wrinkles to make Body Language look upbeat. Tom Kennedy hosted this Goodson-Todman game show where two celebrity/contestant teams competed in charades. The first round had the contestant guessing what the celebrity acted. The player had to guess as many of five words or phrases as possible in 60 seconds. After time expired, the guessed words are placed on a puzzle board with seven numbered blanks (two were unacted words). If the player guessed correctly what person, place or thing the puzzle described, they won $100. If not, their opponent was called over to choose a blank to reveal before making a guess. The two players alternated revealing blanks and making guesses until one guessed correctly. If neither had solved the puzzle after all seven blanks were filled in, their partners were each given a guess. If they both were incorrect, the puzzle was thrown out and the value of it carried over to the next puzzle. The second round had the celebrities guess while the contestants acted. Starting on September 2, 1985, the player won a $500 bonus (not counted toward the score) if they guessed all five words before time ran out (this bonus only applied in round two). The puzzles were valued at $250. The first team to reach $500 won the game and advanced to the Sweepstakes round If neither team reached $500, a playoff puzzle was played with the contestants only playing. Originally, contestants could stay for up to five wins, but starting on September 24, 1984, they could stay until incurring two losses or winning five games. The contestant had to guess as many of ten words or phrases as possible in 60 seconds the celebrity acted (this was later changed to let the contestant choose which member would act and which would guess). The contestant won $100 for each word or phrase they guessed correctly. After the first half of the bonus game, a 20-second round was played with three word or phrases. If the team guessed all three words before time ran out, the money won in the first half was multiplied by ten, for a maximum possible bonus of $10,000. If not, the player still had the money won in the first half. TRIVIA: When the BL ticket plug came around, you heard a theme for a future NBC game show, Classic Concentration!moreless

    Following the untimely death of his young wife, N.Y.P.D. plainclothes detective Jack Shannon (played by Kojak star Kevin Dobson) moves to San Francisco with his ten-year-old son, Johnny (Charlie Fields). The move serves two purposes-it provides a change of scene to help him get over his grief and, since his wife's parents (the Locatellis (Al Ruscio, Karen Kondazian) ) lives there, it gives him some assistance in the raising of Johnny. With the help of some of his former superiors in New York (which fosters initial resentment) Jack obtains a position with the S.F.P.D. Special Squad of Investigators. Norm White (William Lucking) is his partner and Lt. Moraga (Michael Durrell) is their immediate superior.moreless

    CBS (ended 1982)
    House Calls is a short-lived series that airs on CBS. The show took place around a surgeon and the administrative assistant's love life. By using comedy, the show is able to demonstrate just how crazy the hospital workers were. The series is from the 1979 movie House Calls. Ann Anderson (Lynn Redgrave) and Dr. Charley Michaels (Wayne Rogers) share a love for the first two seasons, until Dr Michaels moves on to Jane Jeffries (Sharon Gless), in the third season of the show. The show abruptly comes to an end, due to bad ratings and the short series. Despite the poor quality, Lynn Redgrave and Wayne Rodgers both receive Emmy nominations for their roles. Lynn Redgrave also receives a nomination for a Golden Globe. Sharon Gless leaving the show after the second season, is due to difficulties with the producers of the show, but she moves on to star in the hit show Cagney and Lacy. moreless
