Show Idea
14 April 2008 | by bmodicaSee all my reviews

This was a show about a TV star playing a Cowboy hero. Richard Mulligan played the star, with Mariette Hartley as his wife. Two things I remember about it: he drove a car (Cadillac?) with longhorns on the hood and 6-guns for handles, and they were the very first couple on TV who slept in the same bed! I remember reading that in TV Guide or some such publication at the time. Probably the reason the show wasn't successful was because the two did not make a likely pair. She was gorgeous; he a dork. The storyline was intriguing, though. Good idea, but it simply wasn't particularly believable. I wouldn't be surprised that the show only was on the air a few episodes. I'd like to see what two looked like back 40 years ago.
