theme song

Why is the best 70's detective show, The Rockford Files, not being included? Ok, so Jim Rockford was a PI and not a cop, still pretty much a cop show. Great theme song, love the guitar riff. And he could take a punch, too!

5-0

I always liked the Hawaii 5-0 theme song and opening scenes. Made me want to jump up, grab the board, and head for the beach (or at least fire a fatty and imagine the beach).

Too bad Telly is still not around. He, of all people, could probably answer how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop. Who loves you, baby!

damn developers

damn developers sure fucked up Waikiki... how things have changed! well, they fucked it up more, and they are still fucking it up even as we speak.

my buddy actually lived IN the Ilikai for a year or 2, the building McGarret is on top of...

well, anyway, this is a pretty cool song, too!

Which 70s cop show had the best theme song?

Which 70s cop show had the best theme song??

a) Baretta b) Columbo c) Kojak d) Hawaii 5-0 e) Barney Miller
f) Husky and Starch g) ___________________

who even remembers Husky and Starch's theme song?
fuckin Zebra - 3. those guys were wankers.

Columbo, ok... but certainly not that memorable, any more than Kojak's theme was memorable...

a tough choice between Baretta and Hawaii 5-0...

but for a cop show, I gotta go with Baretta's theme.

sung here by Mr. Entertainment!

Robert Blake is Baretta

did you know that "Baretta" in Swahili means 'stupid dumb ass motherfucker' ??

well, in ONE of the dialects it does!

the question was who was the TOUGHEST cop not who was the dumbest!!

Who was the toughest?
Who was the toughest TV cop of the 70s??

and why??

a) Baretta b) Columbo c) Kojak d) Steve McGarret e) Barney Miller
f) Hutch g) Starsky

h) __________________________

in my book,

Baretta was too short to be really tough.
Columbo, while intelligent and pretty much of a hard ass when it came to law breakers, never bitch slapped any perps.
McGarret was a bit too 'official' and by the book, though he did threaten and knock around a few suspects in season one.
Barney Miller -- no elaboration necessary. How did this guy make Captain anyways? Oh, I know, the only one else up for the job was Fish. (a GREAT comedy TV show, though)
Starsky and Hutch were both borderline fags (not that there is anything wrong with that) how many shows did a bomb go off and they were thrown into each other's arms?? sheesh.

so, that leaves Kojak -- the toughest bad ass cop of the 70's in a VERY tough neighborhood. The 9th Precint on the lower east side of MaDhattan. He either threatened, violated someone's civil rights,or bitch slapped a perp in almost every episode. Further, he wore a cool hat and his suits were top notch. especially the linings. PLUS he got laid more than all of those other cops combined.

Who love's you baby?

Charo the guitarist

So I'm looking through the latest Guitar Player and they have a list of the top 40 underrated guitarists and among them is David Lindley, Kim Simmons from Savoy Brown, Rick Derringer, Robie Krieger from the Doors, Rory Gallagher, Andy Powell and Ted Turner from Wishbone Ash and Charo! No kidding.

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
