Journal, Lloyd

Here’s the next installment in the “What I Was Watching” series. Seriously? How am I still writing these? Here’s the first instalment. And here is the complete prime time schedule for 1982-1983 so that you can play along at home.

7:00 7:30 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30

    Trapper John!! That one doctor lived in his RV in the parking lot. He was ahead of his time.

    I can’t believe you considered watching something other than Magnum!

    As I look over that list, I hear all the theme songs in my head.
