My first post, finally, on this thread is going to be about ADAM-12, which
premiered in 1968. It is currently showing on the Antenna-TV network,
usually alongside Dragnet. A friend and I have been watching it, mostly
on the weekend airings, and talking about it a bit.

So, when I was young and this show came on Saturday nights, I had a crush
on one of those officers, Kent McCord.

                              

Lately he's been active in the SAG, he might've even been President of it for awhile.
When I worked at Virgin Megastore he came in once when it was quite empty and
I talked to him for a bit.  And the guy looks just about the same as he did in 1968,
whereas I now look older than he does!  ($%&#!)  At the time, I had just recently
seen an episode of Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In where he and Martin Milner were doing
some jokes as their Adam-12 personas and I mentioned to him that I had just seen that.
He was very nice. And I felt my crush coming back! I almost, really--a l m o s t told him
that I had had a crush on him way back when. I wish I had now.

Sigh.

And having watched many of these lately I'm finding Martin Milner was quite appaling, too.

He was also a regular on Route 66 with George Chakiris, but I have never seen much of that show.
By the way, I also used to see George Chakiris at my other job I had. George Chakiris is gay, if you
believe renting gay porn -- a lot -- is a good indication.

Some other gay tv stars of yesteryear that I met will probably get mentioned if we bring up their
shows here. We should keep a running tally!  Heh!

We could start with Bewitched for several right off the bat, lol!

This collage is great, except maybe for Alf being in it, lol.  I love the little touch
of putting the Have Gun, Will Travel business card in it!

I love the Christmas photos you posted, too, of Bonanza and Bewitched, where did you find those?
I haven't seen those before!

As for westerns, I can't say I'm a huge fan of them, but anyone watching
TV in the 60's watched them becasue there were so many on. I always had
my eye on Doug McCLure in The Virginian, though.



I always liked him better as a sailor in WWII movies, however!

The actor on the right is someone named David Macklin. He has a website and
is still promoting himself all over the place!  Good for him!

I just googled "classic tv" and so many Christmas ones come up - I will post some more.

I do love the collage, but yea what is with ALF?  :D


As for Kent McCord, get in line honey.   I thought he was adorable and yea he is still is.   How cool that you met him!  I think I would have told him about your crush.  :-*

And I think we should talk about the classic TV stars of old who "came out".


And yea Daren #2 for sure!  Funny I felt like there was zero chemistry between Samantha and second Daren, compared to first Daren.   And then when I found out he was gay, I thought ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I see.


Of course that didn't hold true for McMillan and Wife, I thought they had incredible chemistry.   Are we "sure" Rock was gay?  :D



I am beginning to see all my crushes came from old TV shows, I think it stared with Dr. Kildaire, Richard Chamberlin.

How adorable was he??  And married five times, wonder what he was looking for?  ::)  And he died so young, just terrible.

I was friends for a time with a guy named Dean Jones. (Not that
Dean Jones.) And he resembled Doug McClure quite a bit only he
was even more good looking!  I told him once I had a thing for
Doug McClure and imagine my surprise when he told me that
he was friends with Doug McClure's daughter!

Sorry, Martin. I meant "appealing" of course!

 :D :D  What are the chances of that?


I just thought of another one Robert Reed, Mr. and Mrs. Brady, didn't they seem perfect together?


Here is some great pics:

Oh Lyle...

It was George MAHARIS who co-starred with Martin Milner, not West Side Story's George CHAKIRIS!

Are you sure YOU'RE gay?

I thought Maharis and Milner's other TV partner, Kent McCord, were just dreamy!

Not Milner, though.  Blah.

Yes, I meant Maharis, not Chakiris, although I did meet George Chakiris there, too, when
he was doing The King and I in a theatre in Long Beach. (I was supposed to see that, too,
but a friend couldn't make it and we had to reschedule and it was sold out and we didn't.

I wish!

   Duh.

Take another look!

I mean, look away, or?
Though he is 82 now!

Not bad and the show looks like a great premise!



And since the loin cloth was started! :D
