Saturday Night Showcase: Emergency +4

Emergency! was a 1970s TV series created by R.A. Cinder and Harold Jack Bloom, and produced by Jack Webb, who co-created Adam-12 with Cinder. The show followed Los Angeles firefighter paramedics Roy DeSoto (played by Kevin Tighe) and John Gage (played by Randolph Mantooth–what a name), their fellow firefighters at the then fictional Station 51, and the ER doctors of also fictional Rampart General Hospital, who were also the focus of the show. 759 more words

I was pretty sure I came up with a word for what I do here, and that word is “nonstalgia,” looking back on something from my youth without any particular fondness, but rather a grudging “Yeah, that happened, I’m not going to pretend I don’t remember it.” It seemed like such a clever word, maybe not necessarily the next “humblebrag,” but certainly something close to it. 2,087 more words
