    All your answers are here.


    On January 15, 1981, "Hill Street Blues" premiered on NBC and changed the face of television forever. The irreverent, fast-paced series revolved around the dramatic turns in the lives of the officers of Hill Street Station. An average day at Hill Street was anything but usual, ranging from humorous to wacky to tragic to grisly--but always realistic.
    During its seven-year run, the consistently top-rated program collected 26 Emmy Awards, including "Best Series" four years in a row. The theme song, by Mike Post, likewise was a smash hit and ranked #10 in Billboard Magazine's Top TV Theme Songs of 1985.

    "Hill Street Blues" concluded its original run on May 19, 1987.

    Just a Guess.
    On September 14th, 1957, a new western debuted on the CBS television network. Richard Boone played the man called "Paladin" in Have Gun -- Will Travel. The unique title survives today, in countless incarnations in advertising and other media -- or have you never heard the phrase "Have ______, Will Travel"? Well, now you know whence it came. The half-hour show aired Saturday, at 9:30 p.m., just before another popular western, Gunsmoke, and ran for six successful seasons. (It opened as the #4 rated show for the year, then followed up with three years ranked #3.) Its dramatic opening had Paladin aiming his gun and his words directly at the audience, and the series always featured a no-nonsense approach and intelligence rarely evident on the small screen. HGWT has seldom been seen in syndication over the last 25 years, apparently because it was filmed in black-and-white, and because it's "tainted" by violent content. The latter rationale seems especially ludicrous, considering the graphic mayhem depicted in today's programming. Paladin killed many men, true enough -- but his victims were always deserving -- and almost none of the violence in the show was gratuitous. The best epsiodes put today's television drama to shame.

    Good One bigc.

    Dr. Who
    First Episode Aired Nov. 23, 1963
    Last Episode Aired Nov. 22, 1989
    This BBC television series made between 1963 and 1989 was the longest running Fantasy/Science Fiction TV show in history. The format consisted of a number of 25 minute episodes telling a self-contained story over usually four or six episodes. Each episode would contain a short recap of the previous episode and would be concluded on a cliffhanger. For most of its run, Dr Who episodes would be shown at around 5:30pm on Saturday afternoons, although this did change in the last few seasons. No new episodes have been produced for several years, with exception of a short piece of the BBC's Children in Need Telethon. However, a new TV movie was shown recently in the US and the UK.

    The series revolves around the travels of a renegade `Time Lord', known simply as the Doctor, who travels around all of space and time in a time travel machine known as the TARDIS, which looks for most of the time like an old Police box:
    The Doctor has an unusual physiology which includes two hearts and the ability to `regenerate' into a new physical appearance when the existing body becomes old or damaged. For most of his adventures, he is accompanied by at least one companion, often more. Although many of the companions have been humans from Earth, there have been others who were either robots or aliens.

    Thus far, seven different actors have played the Doctor on TV, and Paul McGann in the new TV movie.
