LW, Honor Blackman? Hmm, don't know...the only avenger for me was Diana Rigg...didn't care much for the other women.

buckaroogal, Whiplash? I missed that one. Aside from seeing Graves in Stalag 17, my only knowledge of him is Fury and MI.

LW and Cav, I was playing a game on Yahoo. One of the other game players called herself (I have to assume this is a woman) the Real Mrs. Peel. I thought of you guys.

I guess the site went unstable (sic) a few days ago and lost some posts! I had posted that I was surprised TV Land or one of the other vintage cable channels haven't picked up "Fury" which was pre-"Mission Impossible" for Peter Graves. "Dr. Who" was a Sunday morning ritual for me as I went through the paper and had a fat attack of Belgian waffles, strawberries and whipped cream. It's available on DVD and I am tempted because it's nowhere to be found. Of course, the minute I bought "The Avengers" on DVD, it became a regular on Encore Mystery every day and they're on their third recycle.

LW, Is a2k haunted? Things keep disappearing and reappearing. I'm surprised that one of the stations that broadcasts old tv shows hasn't picked up Fury, too. But these stations seem to specialize in sitcoms.

I never saw Dr. Who. Where was I? How could I have missed it? Phooey.

Great satirical sci-fi series from the BBC which was shown on PBS quite frequently in the 80's then kind of dissapeared except for the aforementioned DVD's. A2K is haunted alright and I think they should all be banished back to the Abuzz haunted castle.

In Whiplash, Graves was a stagecoach driver. It was about the first stagecoach line in Australia, and was filmed there also. Didn't last long though.

Buckaroogal, Whiplash is not ringing any bells with me. Australian stagecoach driver. Interesting idea.

well, if you go to the Broken Wheel Ranch page, and look for the link to Whiplash, it may help your memory. But if you weren't around at the time, it probably won't help at all. Very Happy

@Roberta,
I thought it was great, too. I frequently pull "the story of a horse, and a boy who loved him' line out of my hat with my school kids, and they think I'm out of my mind. It's fun relating to them from another era, when we were kids ourselves.

@Rick Senften,
Remember them all, Rick.

Loved that horse. Wanted that horse. Had a big fight with my mother about that horse. She thought it would be impractical to have a horse in a tenement in the Bronx. Some parents are just too damned strict.

@Roberta,
I remember Fury. I loved that show. I watched it every Sat. AM. It was amazing how Fury only allowed 'Joey' to ride him. I'm not sure as to how 'Joey' came to live at the 'Broken Wheel' with 2 single men, 'Jim' & 'Pete'.

I remember an episode in which Fury actually DID let someone besides 'Joey' ride him. A family friend who had been injured in a rodeo accident was visiting. 'Jim' and 'Pete' had gone on an errand. 'Joey' had gotten himself stuck somewhere, and since Fury was always doing his 'Lassie' thing (getting help when Joey was in trouble), Fury went back to the ranch and actually allowed the friend to ride him to help 'Joey'. But after everything was OK, he wouldn't let the friend ride him again. That was how Fury showed how much he loved 'Joey', by making an exception when help was needed.

@Eddie boy 1,
Eddie boy, Memories of that show bring back my childhood too. I would watch. Maybe I blinked; maybe I didn't. My mother would say, "OK, it's over. Now do (something." And I would say, "No. I have to wait for the little ending." I called epilogues "little endings" for a long time. Just remembered that. Thanks.
