Thanks, rdvegas! I know I watched the show, though I was a huge fan of Secret Agent and The Prisoner (which I have on DVD now). Those two shows were broadcast Saturday nights on CBS as summer replacement shows for the Jackie Gleason Show. Those years were also the time of Star Trek (the original series, not the movies). One bizarre thing I recall about TV at that time is that our local station (local as in Tulsa, OK) decided to broadcast the first year of Man from UNCLE on Sunday nights at 11, meaning I couldn't stay up for it as I had school the next day. No such thing as even VCRs in those days... My, have things changed!
I note that I'm not getting any of the local "30" channels at the moment (I block out all the other religious channels, so I can't report on them), so I can't see what if anything has changed. Channels just seem to come and go, at least here in downton Abq. For several months channel 7 and 7.2 were weak and full of errors, when they showed up at all, and I hadn't moved my antenna. Now they seem to be back with a few drop outs. Programming hasn't improved. Fox/2 always seems to be sharp and clear, which I appreciate it as it seems to have the best programming (based on liking Gordon Ramsey) and it will improve later this month when Fringe returns. With the change of seasons we'll see what changes with the broadcast quality...
