Network Promo: Coming Friday, October 1

I’ve got not one, not two, but THREE different shows this week, all sharing a common theme, but approaching it in different ways.  One from 1976, one from 1992, and the last from 1994… and the longest ran only one full season.  A bonus quote from the article this week, just so each show will have two.  SIX quotes:

(from version 1, 1976)
… who was such a bumbler that his incompetence kept putting all of his former partners in the hospital.

The comedy was broad, hoping to invoke the style of Martin & Lewis, and Gleason & Carney.

(from version 2, 1992)
…emotionally, she’s at the level of a 7-year-old, still learning about human behavior…

…the characterizations and plots were undermined by the attempts at being “cutting edge” in style…

(from version 3, 1994)
…and instructions to serve the public trust, protect the innocent, and uphold the law.

“They need a husband… and a father.  I cannot be that.  But I can protect them.”

You’ve got THREE shows to guess this week, each with a different style and different characters, but using the same general idea.  Bring a new partner, and I’ll meet you at Friday 8/7 Central!!

      I must be making this too easy… or you’re just too good.

      You’re just too good.

      Next time, I’m not putting the years up . Or maybe I should have mixed up the quotes.. that would have been even more fun….

      Glad you enjoyed it, and I hope you enjoy the article as well.

        If I’m being completely honest, it was the years. I was positive about #3, but #1 and #2 I had a few possibilities and was then able to confirm with the dates.

        However, once you figure out what the two common threads were, it narrows the playing field A LOT.

        They are sufficiantly difficult. Keep it up.
