Netflix enabled me to take a very nostalgic trip down memory lane this weekend. It was the perfect antidote for what ailed me. We lost a very dear friend of the family this week and I needed some sort of distraction.
I just finished a semi marathon viewing of one of my favorite police dramas. The show was The Mod Squad and “Pete Cochran” was my first ever TV crush. Comparing today’s police dramas to the Squad is very painful. Primitive police work of the late sixties, early seventies; forensics weren’t even invented.
If you have some time to waste, find one of your old favorites and watch them. Try to remember what endeared you to the show in the first place. Good ole Pete with his ascots and bell bottoms was the right dose of quirk I needed.
Do you remember your first TV crush? I’d love to hear all about it.
