Today Is Tuesday. You Know What That Means

Today Is Tuesday.
You Know What That Means.
We're Gonna Have a Special Guest.....

The 1970's was the decade for tv action heroes.

Do you remember, "We can rebuild him. We have the technology."?

Do you remember running around in slow motion while making a sound that was the sound of bionics? chiga chiga chiga chiga chiga chiga chiga chiga (No, Not Charo!)

Do you remember the sound of looking at something miles away? bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep.

Then you remember Steve Austin. The Six Million Dollar Man.

If I remember correctly, Chatty Kelly had the action figure. When you rolled up his sleeve or pants legs, a little piece of plastic could pop off and there were "Bionics" underneath. (too cool!)

I had both the bionic man and woman. I love Lindsey Wagner! Those were the days. And the dog. What was his name?

My ADHD Me said...

Max-A-Million lol

Chatty Kelly said...

Max-a-million! Oh yea! I had forgotten. I loved that dog.

I wonder if we loved TV so much because our home life was crap and it was escapism, or if we just loved TV cause kids love TV???

How YOU doing?

My ADHD Me said...

Yes, Yes and fine.

How YOU doin'?

(Graduation this weekend!)

Woo to the hoot on graduation! And I wanted to marry Steve Austin (aka Lee Majors), so I had Farrah Fawcett hair.....sigh...

Loved both of these shows! Often had conflict on Wednesday nights with Bionic Woman, because that ran opposite "Tony Orlando and Dawn," and that was a highly watched program in my house. We had one color TV and one small b/w TV, and there were weekly arguments over who would watch what show on what TV. (Spoiled, we were! We needed 2 electronic sitters!!)

I actually had a small crush on Oscar Goldman, of all people! (Richard Anderson, not to be confused with Richard Dean Anderson--MacGyver, although he was a fave, too. I'm sure RDA had to change his name to meet the Screen Actors Guild requirements.) Thankfully, he was in both shows pretty regularly.

Who could forget Steve Austin. A man barely alive. I figured that Kelly had the dolls and you probibly had a fire truck. :)

I liked him better as 'Heath' in "The Big Valley" with Linda Evans (smokin' HOT...for a blonde. I prefer brunettes).

The only reason I watched 6 million dollor Man was because of the 'sound' that was made when he was running on the treadmill during the opening segment. "rrrrrrRRRRRRRRR"

THAT rrrrrRRRRRR is what sold me on it.

I loved Lindsay Wagner. I'm always drawn to women who can kick butt.

And what about those Charlies Angels?

I watched both the bionic man and bionic woman. I thought it was funny that they had to make a bionic woman but enjoyed both shows. Actually I think I liked all those *technology* shows. :)
