    Don't forget his middle initial.

    His name followed all my favorite shows.

    BG was the best, but I also watched"Buck Rogers" and even "B.J. and the Bear."

    Quincy was his best show and the precursor to 90 percent of network television these days.

    He produced so many shows that I loved, including the ones mentioned so far on this thread.

    I recently watched a couple of episodes of the original Battlestar Galactica on Netflix. They certainly weren't as good as the remake, but they hold up better than I thought they would.

    From beyond the grave, Stephen J. Cannell scoffs at the thread title and defiantly flips a page from A-Team script in your direction, Evil.

    Quincy was awful.
    Klugman deserved a better job.

    At first, that is. Then Klugman bought into the bullshit,
    and then a medical examiner was solving murders every week.

    You realize how far television has come when you realize Larson was one of the more successful producers during the 70s and 80s. But he knew how to program for 12-year-old boys and sell toys.

    Some of my earliest TV memories were courtesy of B.J. and the Bear. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3GpxAyM6yc

    A wildly underrated show that I wish was on in syndication.

    It's always interesting to find out which shows people watched as young kids. Because often you can tell which people watched shows by themselves and which people watched shows with their parents.
