    Leg Work was one delightful show that was on CBS back in 1987. Unfortunatly for that tv season it was the first casuality of the year being cancelled after just six airings. LEG WORK had one of the most interesting opening sequences for a television series. All three lead actors in the series were listed in the opening credits as starring. The way that it was done Margaret Colin was the first star of this show as the series revolved around her role of Claire McCarron a hot shot sexy female dectetive. Clare had lots of contacts in the series like her brother Lt. Fred McCarron of the New York Police Department who was played by Patrick James Clark and Clare's best friend was Willie Pipal a chief prosecutor for the New York City Court who was played by Frances McDormand. Francis has went on to bigger and better things since LEG WORK went off the air, she has been twice nominated for an Academy Award and winning one for her role in Fargo in 1997. Margaret has done several films since and a few other television series such as the critically acclaimed Now And Again for CBS. LEG WORK only completed 10 episodes of production. CBS only aired 6 of them however TV Land has over the years aired the remaining unaired episodes a few times.moreless

    Affable sheriff's deputy Enos Strate got his own spin-off program from The Dukes of Hazzard for one season. On November 5, 1980, a "Dukes" episode entitled Enos Strate To The Top served as the pilot episode for Enos, showing Deputy Strate capturing two dangerous criminals. One week later, the show made its series premiere. The country boy had been invited to join LAPD in a premise similar to Dennis Weaver's character serving with NYPD in McCloud several years earlier. Unfortunately, the series only lasted 18 episodes. After it was cancelled, Sonny Shroyer took a year off and then returned to the "Dukes" for the last three years of that series seven year run.moreless

    "Now, Big Guy Beck left a whole lot of cash, but he said in his video will, his money-hungry family could never collect if they didn't love his illegitimate son, Wild Bill. He said they had to be one happy family, and that's gonna be a mighty tough switch. But they want that gold and they would sell their souls, cuz they wanna be Filthy Rich." They are dubbed "the characters you love to hate." In literature, on the stage or in a television series, they are the people you really don't like but you can't wait to see what they will do next. Somehow they are the most fascinating if they are the most cunning, deceitful and nasty. In 1982, two new acerbic, beautiful, love-to-hate-em characters invaded the television screen in Filthy Rich, a campy half-hour comedy series from Linda Bloodworth and Larry White Productions designed to parody Dallas and other prime-time soaps of the era. Filthy Rich centered around the Becks, a fabulously wealthy Tennessee family, and the Westchesters, their newly-acquired poor relations. The Becks do anything to keep the family's fortune to themselves, and the members of the clan who scheme the hardest are Carlotta and Kathleen. Carlotta, the wife of the eldest son of the Beck family, is a vision of sugar-coated haughtiness with a demeanor that would put the best head waiter in his place. Kathleen, a former beauty queen who was married to the much-moneyed, now deceased patriach of the clan for a scant 10 months, is catty, ambitious and extremely well endowed. These two lovely ladies cook up some of the most outlandish plans to destroy their opponents to hit the small screen since J.R. Ewing came to Dallas! Carlotta's husband, Marshall, was pompous, arrogant and prone to childlike hissy-fits. Often times, it was he who came up with the botched schemes to drive the Westchesters from the family home, Toad Hall. His brother, Stanley, was handsome, well grounded and independently wealthy. This Dr. Pepper addict was often seen in the bathtub sporting his cowboy hat. Stanley was really the only normal member of the Beck clan, and as such, took sides with the Westchesters. Being rich and single, Stanley often had to fend off Kathleen, who was constantly making advances. Stanley and Marshall's mother, "Mother B," was a fun, senile firecracker who lived, for a time, at the local nursing home because her eldest son and his wife deemed her crazy. It wasn't long before she fled the nursing home and came to live with the family. "Wild" Bill and Bootsie Westchester were a happily married, yet somewhat trashy, couple that had been married for years. Bill, with his thick Southern-accent, sold RV's and appeared in the dealership's commercials, which ran on late-night television. Housewife Bootsie was rather dimwitted yet well read on many subjects (such as volumes A-Y of the encyclopedias) and she sold synthetic "Fantasy Fur" in her spare time.moreless

    Sheriff John Grail was mad - we hit a bank in his town. Harland Pike, me - Wolfson Lucas, William Pike, and Isaiah "Ice" McAdams, known collectively as the Pike Gang. Grail had once been partners in crime with the four of us, but now all bets were off. The showdown was interrupted however by the Allmighty, who sent us all sailing into the 20th century, and what a century it was! But we weren't what you would call ordinary men, so we dug in, tried to adapt, and started a detection agency to put beans on the table and in the process ran head on into Deputy Maggie Randall. Things may be different this century, but there's plenty of work to be done because one thing is bound to be true - the bad hombres will always outnumber the good. In 1886, the four members of the Pike gang and their ex-partner, Sheriff John Grail, meet in a dead-end gully over an Indian graveyard and a burst of lightning catapults them all 100 years into Houston in the future. Forced to band together, the five start up the Double-Eagle Detective Agency and, with the help of Lt. Belford, fight crime with a unique Old West sensibility.moreless

    Welcome to the Island Son guide at TV.com. Returning to weekly series television for the first time since Dr. Kildare in the 1960s, Richard Chamberlain was again cast as a dedicated physician. Dr. Daniel Kulani had had a successful career as an internist on the mainland but decided to return home and take a staff position at the Kamehameha Medical Center in Honolulu. It was here that he could be close to the family that had adopted him as a child and work with needy native Hawaiians. Working with Daniel at the medical center were the chief surgeon, Kenji Fushida, two talented young residents, Metzger and McGrath, and the cost-conscious chief of staff, Margaret Judd. Although the series centered around activities at the hospital, the divorced Dr. Kulani did spend time with his adoptive parents, Tutu and Nana; his stepbrother James; and his own son, 18-year-old Sam, who was unsure about whether he wanted to be in college or out on his own. In the spring of 1990, Daniel fell in love with high school drama teacher Nina Delaney, a divorcee with a 13-year-old daughter, but Island Son was cancelled before the course of their relationship was determined.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 1973)
    Archie's Funhouse was a Saturday morning cartoon show that aired on CBS from 1970 to 1971 and from 1972 to 1973. The show was the sequel to the previous season's one-hour Archie Saturday morning series "The Archie Comedy Hour" (which was one of the biggest hits for the 1969-1970 Saturday morning season). "Archie's Funhouse", of course, featured Archie and his pals (Jughead, Reggie, Veronica, Betty, Hot Dog and others) as on-stage hosts of skits, jokes, and music. The program also had live-action kids as the audience for the show, responding to the antics of the Archie gang. Actually, the concept from the show came from 2 segments that were first shown on the previous season's "The Archie Comedy Hour". They were the "Funhouse" and "Side Show" segments. On "Archie's Funhouse", these segments featured puns, jokes, and skits. For these segments, Filmation Studios hired writers from the hit NBC primetime show "Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In" (the show that inspired these segments) to write for these segments. In addition, the show also featured "The Giant Jukebox", playing hit songs from The Archies. There were 3 song segments per show with on-stage performances by The Archies. Hit songs included "Sunshine", "Love Vibrations", and "Comes The Sun". "Archie's Funhouse" started off as a one-hour show on Saturday mornings from 1970 to 1971, then it was trimmed to a half-hour shown on Sunday mornings from 1972 to 1973.moreless
