This past thursday on ABC TV there was a huge nod and mention to David Cassidy and the Partdige Family. I don't know if anyone watches this ABC show, but it is about a NYPD Detective "transported" from 2008 to 1973. At the end of the show the whole song "Point me in the direction of Albuquerque" was played, I beleive this is the first time since 1970 that this song was heard on the same channel. This was a great episode and if you did not catch it, watch it on ABC.com for the full episode, you won't be dissapointed. Very Happy

Life On Mars is a great show!! I was surprised how much they featured that song in the show. But really not so surprised, since it is set in 1973.

Yup -- the UK version is coming out, but the US version is coming out too -- in September. Here's the link:

I never watched the show, but heard it was very good. So, of course it gets canceled. I mean, by all means cancel it, so that we can have room in the schedules for remakes of Bionic Woman, Knight Rider, etc. etc. etc. Or better yet -- more reality CRAP! Maybe we can have a reality show about Super Nanny Top Model Chefs Who Dance With Idols !!Laughing

I'm thinking another CSI, focusing on the deaths of reality show chefs, nannys, wanna be pop idols and dancers.

I saw a couple of episodes of LIfe on Mars, it is a good show. Imagine a show with Harvey Kietel being canceled. It's worth tuning in just to watch him. I didn't know I could watch it on line, you can be sure I'll check out the nod to DC/PF.

Wonder if the network put the request in for that 'nod' in anticipation of plugging the new 'Cassidy Clan' show?

What surprised me was they used Albuquerque (a 70-71 song) instead of Breaking Up is hard to do or some other 3rd season song

They used that song because one of the characters was going home to Albuquerque.

You mean tomorrow night, right? ;-)

If the finale is as good as last week's episode and if it is a satisfying end to the series, I am DEFINITELY buying the DVD set!

We're living parallel lives, JH! On Monday, I sent anniversary wishes to my best friend and his wife (I emailed them the Happy Anniversary song from The Flintstones) PLUS I wished a former boss a happy birthday, because I was SURE Monday was MAY 30th, not MARCH 30th. (sigh)

The world is spinning too fast... Confused Rolling Eyes Confused
