    The Space Sentinels

    The Space Sentinels

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1978)
    Three young humans were taken from Earth thousands of years ago. On an advanced alien planet, they were imbued with special powers and trained to defend and protect the Earth and its surrounding space. Returned to Earth in modern times, they act as superheroes, based in a spacecraft which is normally hidden inside the caldera of a dormant volcano. The trio includes Astraea, an African woman who has the power to assume the form of any animal. Hercules is a cave man (originally barechested in a loin cloth) who has super-strength. Mercury is a Chinese man given super-speed. All three were given rocket belts for flight and they're supervised, advised and dispatched by a sentient supercomputer on their ship, Sentinel One, who appears in the form of a floating disembodied head (similar to but pre-dating the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers). Completing the list of characters was a small robot, Maintenance Operator, usually called "MO" (pronounced Moe). Able to hover and fly and equipped with four arms and two legs, MO was responsible for the repair and maintenance of the ship and is infatuated with Astraea. The show's producers say his resemblance to the robots in the movie Silent Running was intentional. The show's main cast reflected the various races of the main characters. African-American Dee Timberlake and Korean-American Evan Kim joined George DiCenzo as the voices behind the cels. The show concept has been compared to the Green Lantern Corps from the Green Lantern comic books published by DC comics. The show was originally called The Young Sentinels, but NBC thought the name was too generic, leading to a title change late in the season that emphasized their space background. However, because all episodes had already been produced, dialog throughout the series refers to them as Young Sentinels. For the 2006 DVD release, all of the episodes were given the revised Space Sentinels opening title sequence rather than the original that the earlier episodes had.moreless

    The Girl with Something Extra was a short-lived situation comedy intended to be a vehicle for Sally Field. Sally starred as a character of the same first name who was newly married to attorney John Burton (played by John Davidson). The twist for the series was that Sally possessed exra sensory perception (ESP), an "ability" that generated a lot of popular interest at the time (the early 1970s).

    While the show was not a hit and lasted for only one season, it did feature a number of notable actors as regulars or guest stars.moreless

    Jackpot

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1975)
    Jackpot started out in 1974 on NBC, taking over the Jeopardy! time slot (Noon/11:00 CT). 16 contestants competed for a week as one was designated the Expert. The Expert picked one of 15 players, then the player tells how much the riddle's worth that adds to the jackpot (or if it's the Jackpot riddle). If the Expert answers it corretcly, s/he stays. Otherwise, the players trade places. There's also a Super Jackpot. To get that, the player has to match the last three digits of the target number (IE: $410). The target number then was multiplied from 5-50 to establish the Super Jackpot (IE: $410 x 50 = $20,500). If that happens, both the player chosen & the expert get a chance to split a Super Jackpot that ranged from $4,975-$50,000. To have it @ $50,000, the Target would have to be $995 x 50 = $49,750 (the producers sprung for the extra $250). 10 years later after NBC yanked the show, the series found a new home (Toronto, Canada), new host (Mike Darrow) & new network (USA Cable). Play was like the NBC version except the Expert was called the King/Queen of the Hill, players traded places whether or not the Jackpot riddle was won. There were also bonus prizes, return trips & other special contests (IE: $10,000 Riddler contest, $50K super riddle). Riddles ranged from $50-$250 while Super Jackpots ranged from $2,000-$9,950. In 1989, it was syndicated. Geoff was back & the show moved to L.A. In this version, to add money to the jackpot, the riddle has to be answered correctly. There was slso Doubl Dollars, Instant Target Match in this version. Unfortunately, the production company went bankrupt.moreless

    NBC (ended 1972)
    In a 2004 interview Don Adams described his 1971 creation The Partners as having been Lethal Weapon before there was Lethal Weapon. The series centered on the exploits of a pair of bumbling police detectives, Lennie Crooke and George Robinson - one white, one black. Don Adams himself played Crooke while Oscar nominee Rupert Crosse was cast as Robinson. Other regular characters were their volatile boss Captain Andrews, played by John Doucette, and his punctilious assistant (and Lennie's nemesis) Sgt Higgenbottom, played by Dick Van Patten. The recurring role of compulsive confessor Freddie Butler was played by Don Adams's cousin Robert Karvelas. Adams had intended to use the show as a vehicle for exploring serious social issues but the studio and network insisted on a safer approach thereby condemning it to being dismissed as a copy of Get Smart, the 1965-70 series in which Adams had portrayed Maxwell Smart, a bumbing secret agent. The Partners was cancelled after only 20 episodes had been produced having been soundly beaten in the ratings by the biting All In The Family, suggesting that Adams's original vision had been the correct one. Made by Universal Studios in association with 'don/lee productions' Broadcast History: Sep 1971 - Jan 1972 NBC Sat 8:00-8:30 Jul 1972 - Sep 1972 NBC Fri 8:00-8:30 20 Color Episodes On Film A TV movie, "Confessions of a Top Crimebuster", was compiled from episodes of the series.moreless

    Welcome to The Sanford Arms guide at TV.com.

    The Sanford Arms was an attempt to continue the long-running success of "Sanford & Son" without Redd Foxx or Demond Wilson. The actors had left earlier for different reasons. Fred's old army buddy, Phil Wheeler, comes to run the Sanford Arms hotel after Fred and Lamont moved to Arizona (it was stated in the show that they left due to Fred's health). Bubba is still around, only now he is the hotel's bellboy. Esther also frequents the hotel, becoming the star of the show in Fred's absence. This was not enough to save the series, and after only four episodes, it was pulled from the air.

    Though it failed, it would not be the last attempt at a revival. In 1980, Redd Foxx returned with the series "Sanford". It had more success, running two seasons. For more information on that series, see its separate guide.moreless
