I’ve heavily revised my article on The Good Guys, which was one of the earlier articles published back in 2003. In addition to higher quality videos and images, additional reviews and ratings information, I finally corrected the lyrics to the first season theme song. Here’s the summary:
Bob Denver, Herb Edelman and Joyce Van Patten starred in this low-key sitcom which premiered in September 1968. Denver played a taxi driver constantly hatching get rich quick schemes while Edelman played the owner of a small diner and Van Patten his wife. Critics were for the most part not impressed with the series although some felt the Denver/Edelman pairing was fruitful. Alan Hale and Jim Backus, two of Denver’s co-stars from Gilligan’s Island, were recruited in early 1969 for recurring roles. The series was renewed for a second season and changes made in an attempt to improve ratings. Only a few months into the 1969-1970 season CBS pulled the plug and the series has not been seen since its initial run.
