Dr. Kildare

Dr. Kildare logoDr. Kildare came to television after having been an extremely successful series of movies in the 1940's. There was something immensely appealing about the story of a young intern in a large metropolitan hospital trying to learn his profession, deal with problems of the patients and win the respect of the senior doctor in his specialty, internal medicine. Kildare was the young intern, Dr. Gillespie was the father figure and Blair General the hospital in which they practiced medicine. During the course of its run, Dr. Kildare went through an evolutionary process. By the third season Kildare was promoted to resident. His intern buddies from the first season, Dr. Agurski and Dr. Gerson were not seen in the subsequent seasons as the program came to center more closely on the patients and their ...

Dragnet

Dragnet logoDragnet 1967-1970 was the second run of the Dragnet series. It began in January of 1967, and ran to September of 1970. The lead character, Sgt. Joe Friday, was played by Jack Webb, who also directed and produced the series. The show's focus is on two detectives, Sgt. Joe Friday, and Officer Bill Gannon, played by Harry Morgan. The two track down criminals all throughout the city of Los Angeles, California. The original "Dragnet" was the grandfather of ALL of today's police drama shows. This was the first time a cancelled network TV series was successfully revived. In late 1965, Universal and NBC hired Webb to revive "Dragnet" as a made-for-TV movie. This was filmed in early 1966, but didn't air until January 1969. Titled "World Premiere: Dragnet," the well-made film has Friday and ...

Dragnet (1951)

Dragnet (1951) logoThe program opened each week with these words from Det. Sgt. Joe Friday: "This is the city, Los Angeles, California. I work here, I carry a badge." Then that arresting theme music began to play ("Dum-de-dum-dum"). Probably the most successful police drama in television history. Dragnet's hallmark was its appearance of realism, from the documentary-style narration by Joe Friday, to the cases drawn from the files of the real L.A.P.D., to its attention to the details of police work ("It was 3:55. . . We were working the day watch out of homocide"). Viewers were reminded of the unglamorous dead ends and the constant interruptions of their private lives that plague real policemen, and this made the final shoot-out and capture of the criminal all the more exciting. At the end of each episode, af...

Dream House

Dream House logoWelcome to the Dream House guide at TV Tome. New houses have been offered as grand prizes for many game shows, including The Price is Right and Wheel of Fortune. The genesis came in March 1968, with a game show where the house was the grand prize. Thus, Dream House was born. The original ran on ABC for two years before returning in 1983 as a daily series on NBC. That's the version covered here. Two teams of two (usually married couples), one of them a returning champion, competed. Host Eubanks read a true-false toss up question, with a correct answer giving that couple $50 and control of the question board of four categories. Each category had a multiple-choice question. After the couple gives their answer, the opposing team can challenge and give their own answer. The couple with the righ...

Ed

Ed logoEd Stevens is a contracts lawyer at a high-profile New York City firm. Around the same time he splits with his wife (she slept with a mailman), he makes a single error in punctuation when going over a contract; and because of the resulting financial loss to the firm, he's fired. Despondent, he heads back to his (small) hometown of Stuckeyville -- 'Anytown', USA. There he realizes he's been missed by a lot of friends whom he's missed; and he sees Carol, the girl he'd adored in high school. Swept up in roiling emotions, Ed buys the local bowling alley on a whim, moves to Stuckeyville, and determines to win Carol's heart. His horizons broaden as he settles once more in Stuckeyville, and the series itself settles into a charming, funny, often serious slice-of-life series focused not solely on ...
