Episode 8 - This Case is Closed But Steve and Dave Still Talk About The First Part of It

Look, I started the clever title putting our names into it doing SCDS and it's not going to change.

This is split up as a two parter in syndication, so we're doing part 1 here, stay tuned next week for part 2.

Some pretty great guest actors this week.  Joseph Cotten and Sharon Gless are both really good.  It is a tad off putting seeing Gless as a bit more, I dunno, helpless isn't the right word, but it'll do.  I'm used to seeing her on Cagney and Lacey being tough.

Back to a little music this week in 'what was going on in 1974'.

Jimbo's being chased by the mob, the feds, basically the whole world.

One wonders if that was an early version of the Soprano crew.

Episode 7 - Steve Is Not a Tall Woman and Dave Does Not Have a Red Wagon

Gee, the 'clever titles' are not that clever, look, it's a work in progress ok?

Jim works for a woman who works at a newspaper.  Seems a lot of crimes happen that have to do with newspeople.

We see the portable printing press Jim carries in the Firebird for the first time.

Also, she is super thin, it's a 70s thing.

Man they tease us with potential car chases in this one.

He says out title again, that's seven.

More trains in this episode than you might expect.

Jimbo plays at least three different characters in this one.

This week, it's a UK election!

Episode 6 - Enter Dave and Steve

Still working on the clever title thing, not unhappy with this one.

Sometimes Steve does Pete Barbutti deep dives.

Prentiss Carr, I wonder if he's any relation to Jimmy Carrr or Emily Carr or, umm, someone else with that last name.

We've got more bad cops in this one.  Seems a running theme, makes sense.  That said, it is sort of gutsy for a show in 1974.

It's also another blackmail episode.  It seems like this was an epidemic in the mid 70s.

'Stay our of Bay City' is something that should have been said to the Rollers.

BONUS EPISODE - We Have the Technology - Episode 0

No this isn't about Jim, Rocky, Beth or Angel. It's not even about Chapman or Diel. I did talk about Rockford in the podcast though!...
