Some Television Notes

In an attempt to get away from the mistakes and any sports, some brief notes while watching some old and older television shows.

A detective on “Murder She Wrote,” an terrific approximately 35 year old show starring the great Angela Lansbury, is named Gerard, in fact Lieutenant Gerard, I believe. This is homage to the great 50 plus year old show, “The Fugitive,” which starred David Janssen, and featured Barry Morse as “Lieutenant Gerard.”

A great actor, George Macready, turned in a fine performance maybe 55 or more years ago, as a vengeful judge on “The Rifleman,” which starred former Brooklyn Dodgers’ player, Chuck Connors.

    Thank you Michael as your words and your tremendous work over the years, especially that regarding the great David Janssen, has great meaning to me and so many others.

    As the exact 50 year anniversary (it was also a Tuesday, August 29, 1967) of the great final episode of “The Fugitive,” nears–thanks again for showing it on your site and all the great work.

    Additionally, I will post again regarding the show, probably on that date. Let’s stay in touch.

    My best,
    Andy Baumgarten
