"Detectives on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" - April 22, 1993
Billions of years ago when I was young I spent half a year saving up for a book called "The ITV Encyclopedia of Adventure" by Dave Rogers. In those days before the internet, it cost $55 to get an import copy of a book that had a list price of £9.95. This book was close to 600 pages of wonders, television programs that I was quite familiar with (The Avengers, The Prisoner) shows that I had heard whispers of, but had no hope of ever seeing in my lifetime (Ace of Wands, Sapphire and Steel) and finally a huge number of programs that I had never heard of. It was like an entire other world was opening up. All of these things had been made and broadcast. Millions of people had watched them. And, of course, many of them had been deleted long ago. Lost forever before I had even a clue that they existed in the first place.
My heavens I poured over that book. I learned all about Man in a Suitcase and Special Bran…
About a week ago I had a looksee at this poor neglected hallway of my internet presence and was astonished to notice that it had been close to a year since the last post on here. So I thought it would be amusing to wait the week and have the next post show up exactly a year later. Give or take twelve hours.
During the course of the "Five Go Mad on Mescalin" episode, I notice that Ron Tarr is wearing a ripped mesh shirt.
I notice the mesh shirt, because I had recently seen an episode of I Love the '80's where mesh shirts are discussed. So here's a mesh shirt. (someone says "plate of fish," you see an ad for "a plate of fish").
Later on in the episode, Candy Davis is wearing the same mesh shirt.
This makes sense to me because the episode implies that they are likely to be having sex, and Ron Tarr has changed into his thug suit, so why not?
As I am watching "Susie," I notice a character wearing a ripped mesh shirt. Where, I think to myself, have I seen that?
So I'm watching the next episode to review ("A Fistful of travelers' Cheques") and look:
I haven't had a chance to go through "Susie" so I don't have a screen grab from that one yet, but I promise to keep up on this amazing development.
