Videos of the Week


(above):  This week's Videos of the week include a visit with a couple of TV doctors.  The first is Marcus Welby M.D..  This ABC series produced at Universal Studios starred Robert Young and a young James Brolin.  This series contributed to the rise of ABC as a major TV ratings contender in 1970.  It was number eight during its first season 1969-1970, making it to number one it's second season.  ABC's efforts to attract younger viewers worked with James Brolin as a lead character with the long term popularity of former "Father Knows Best" star, Robert Young as the old traditional doctor.  In fact neither doctor would be considered tranditional.  They made house calls.  You might notice the house used as Dr. Welby's office was also used in "Leave it to Beaver," as one of the houses on Wisteria Lane in "Desperate Housewives" and in the Humphrey Bogart movie "The Desperate Hours."  The are no complete episodes available...but here are the opening credits....

(above): "Trapper John M.D." was a spin off of M*A*S*H, at least it had the main character's name of a character in the Korean War drama-comedy sit com.  Pernell Roberts former "Adam" on NBC's "Bonanza" leaped back into the weekly grind of an hour long series with "Trapper John M.D." in 1979 where it remained on the CBS schedule until 1986.  Here is the pilot episode broadcast on September 23, 1979..
