A short stack, but a good one



Alias Smith and Jones: Season One. Simply the best tv show ever (although the second season's better than the first). A biography of co-star Pete Duel is due in late May.

The Slaves of Solitude by Patrick Hamilton. Recommended by Magnificent Octopus's Isabella.

The Liar's Diary by Simply Wait's Patry Francis.

I must get the AS&J DVD!! Poor Pete - do you remember him and Judy Carne (of Laugh In fame) in Love on a Rooftop? I hope the biography is approached with some dignity and not just another Hollywood tell-all.

I noticed someone else recently reading The Liar's Diary. It looks interesting as does the Slaves of Solitude.

Sharon, I saw a few of the episodes in rerun after he'd died. Maybe they'll get around to releasing that one a decade or so from now.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed about the bio. Paul Green's a fan, and worked on the AS&J annuals in the UK many years ago.

Danielle--It was Diana who posted about Liar's Diary a week or so back.

I'm so glad Slaves was reissued -- I'll be ordering a copy for myself soon.

Look forward to hearing your comments on Slaves...it's one I am holding out on...

Alias Smith & Jones, I remember that from when it originally ran!

I remember reading about Hamilton's book over at Isabella's. It's on my list of books to get.

My friend Bronson is a HUGE Pete Duel fan, and he's counting the days till the biography comes out. The Liar's Diary looks intruiging. You're right: A short stack, but a good one.

You just never know where you'll find the thing in common. I linked over here to see the funny YouTube video, snooped around, and here I see, Alias Smith and Jones....my favorite show growing up. I adored Pete Duel and was crushed at his death. Crushed. I just received the DVD's Friday. My family and I have been watching them. Oh, the memories! And now there are two new fans....my daugthers (12 and 15).....but they like Kid Curry. We've drawn a line down the middle of the living room - I have one side to myself....ha! Me and Hannibal Heyes. Great blog you have here. Thanks for letting me snoop!

Glad you stopped by, Cherie. So glad to wake up this morning to learn of a new generation of ASJ fans. . . even if they do like the other fella.
