How much did I love this show? This much: I taped the audio on the 8-track player. I figured out a way to hook up the audio jacks to the 8-track deck, plugged in a BASF cart, and recorded the beginning of episode 20. I don't know if it's a rare example of electronic music used in 70s TV, but it's one of the few.

Cam is working late, recording peppery messages to agents in the field. He's abducted by an old adversary. I loved this ep for the reasons I love stories that deal with secondary characters: backstory.

Cam was my hero, anyway. Sorry: Cameron. V.C.R. Cameron.

Get it? VIDEO. CASSETTE. RECORDER. CAMERA. ON. In 1973.

Just another night dictating voice mails.

 

 

Outside, a man is scaling the building in a window-cleaning apparatus. The music descrives his ascent.

 

     
 

I don't know if this is the work of the theme show composer, and I rather doubt it.

     

 

There used to be clips on YouTube, but I gather Warner took them down to direct sales to the DVD. Alas.

This is what they have up to entice the buyer.

 

 

And then there's Doug McClure.

 

 

Not from the show, but somehow important if you wish to understand the times.
