Pinoy Television in the 1970s and the 1980s
« on: Oct 20, 2005 at 11:56 PM »
Do you still remember time slots and channels for Philippine television during the '70s and '80s? For example, during the late '70s, did Channel 7 show Muppet Show before the Donnie and Marie Show on Sundays, and did the station show Three's Company and The Benny Hill Show after that? And did Roald Dahl's Tales from the Unexpected appear right after an hour-long show (was it Quincy, ME)?

How about the following: My Favorite Martian, Mario (and his Machine?), Starsky and Hutch (Wednesdays?), the Rockford Files (Channel 13?), A-Team, The Greatest American Hero, Wait Til Your Father Gets Home (?), Joey and Son, Duplex, Iskul Bukol, Champoy, The Love Boat, The Knight Rider, CHiPs, the WWF, Soap, Barney Miller, MASH, Connections, Cosmos and World at War (late '70s, Channel 9?), Dukes of Hazard, Remington Steele, Sapphire and Steele (Channel 9 or 2?), The Avengers (Channel 13?), John en Marsha, Chicks to Chicks, etc?

No, after Donny & Marie came Charlie's Angels at 8:00P.M.

This was during the '80s, right? How about the '70s, with Soap, Love Boat, Eight is Enough, The Hardy Boys, Starsky and Hutch, SWAT (Channel 2 during the afternoons?), Chico and the Man (BBC, evenings, together with Maude), Avengers (Channel 13?), Sapphire and Steele (RPN, afternoon?), etc.?

You got them roughly in order, IF memory serves me right. I was a GMA-7 addict back then. The schedule was something like this (no guarantees... it's been 30 years, and I was in prep/grade school back then):

Mondays: 9:00 Barnaby Jones

Tuesdays: 9:00 Soap, 9:30 MASH

Wednesdays: 9:00? The Love Boat

Thursdays: 8:00? Eight is Enough (eventually moved to Saturdays)

Fridays: 8:00 The Hardy Boys, 9:00 Starsky and Hutch, 10:00 Petrocelli

Saturdays: 8:00 The Planet of the Apes/Little House on the Prairie, 9:00 Combat (I think...)


I know BBC-2 had "The Bionic Woman" on Tuesdays at 8?... but for the life of me, I cannot remember what day RPN-9 aired my favorite show at the time, "The Six Million Dollar Man."

May I ask... why the sudden nostalgia for old TV show schedules?

Must have something to do with all these big-screen remakes of these 70's TV programs...first Starsky & Hutch, then The Dukes of Hazzard (if I remember, it aired on IBC-13 Mondays - or was it Tuesdays)...

Sorry, could not remember anything from the 70s. Pinanganak pa lang ako noon (sometime in the middle part of the decade)

Don't forget :

Six Million Dollar Man,

the Invisible Man,

The Man From Atlantis,

Wonder Woman,

Those were my favorites among others.

Does anyone remember: "Friday The 13th The Series?"  Is there a DVD Set available?

Sapphire and Steele (RPN, afternoon?), etc.?

Sapphire and Steel was on GMA-7. I remember watching it faithfully week after week, even though I could barely understand what was happening, and even more strangely, I kept expecting Dr. Who to pop up.  ;D
GMA-7 did not air all the episodes, but the entire 34-episode run is available in one DVD set (7 discs) --check out the Amazon.com entry.

I remember the series very well, when it was aired on Channel 9. It dealt more on urban legends, mysticism and the occult. Nothing about Jason Voorhees was ever depicted in the TV series.

That's what I originally thought... Why call it Friday the 13th when Jason is not around to save the day?  But later, I became so engrossed with it... nice theme... find cursed artifacts and restore them in the vault.

Another TV series that I thought was good was "Shadow Chasers?"  Something about a news reporter running after the supernatural.

This was a great series kahit medyo bitinang ending. Patakas ko pa to pinanonood nun kasi late night na. I was hoping to see all the elements come to life. Creepy and eerie ang dating kahit low tech ang special effects. I was fortunate enough to borrow the Region 2 DVD set from trekker. It's her most prized possesion.

I can imagine...somewhere in Hollywood, they are contemplating putting "The 6 Million Dollar Man" to the big screen (whatever happened...I think Will Farrell was attached to play Lt. Col. Steve "Not so Stone Cold" Austin, but methinks Steve Carell is more bagay for the role).

How about some stunt casting on the side...like wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin laying his patented  can of whup-a$$ on the Bionic Man for laying rights on his handle.

I think it was Jim Carrey that was rumored for the role.

anyone remember the fantastic journey (or voyage)series?  was a short lived series in the states
that is similar in some ways to lost, being a group of people stranded on an island.  kaibahan lang e parang
they are from different time eras or dimensions.  cannot recall everything really, all i can remember was
that one of the stars was jared martin and he sorta came from the future and he had this tuning fork
thingie and this girl who's name was liana or lleana or something and the thing i remember about her
back then was she looked like leah navarro.  it aired over channel 7 tuesday evenings.  cannot really
remember much about it but i liked it and was bummed that it got cancelled.

anybody remember the old TV TIMES magazine?  does anybody have a copy of that one still surviving?

Does anyone remember their TV commercial/jingle? With the singing girl in the flowing dress running through HUGE copies of the magazine?

"TV Times, TV Times
Weekly entertainment guide
Accurate schedules, your favorite stars
All of these and more...
on TV Times... TV Times...
TV Times... Your entertainment guide..."


If you remember that, I'm sure you also remember that "La Germania... Generates Love..."  :P

Gosh, I remember that I used to buy TV Times magazine religiously, mainly because of Farrah Fawcett-Majors.  I even had copies of these until about the late 80s.  Had to throw them out kasi nag-aamoy luma na 'yung cabinet ko.

TV TIMES rules the late 70's. Nangolekta rin kami nyan (Hardy Boys/Nancy  Drew, Logan's Run covers) May posters pa! Nasa Grade school pa ako noon! Our version of TV Guide!
