If you’re of a certain age–mine–this article from today’s New York Times is sure to dredge up some long-repressed memories and lots of laughs. Got me thinking about other TV shows from my youth that entranced me. I was the biggest Man from U.N.C.L.E. fan ever, and now I’m questioning the whole thing. Okay, not really. But it also makes one feel bad for the children (and that includes the 20-somethings) of today who are being fooled just the same only with even more hi-tech wizardry. Isn’t there some poetic line about shattered illusions of youth? Something to think about for the New Year. Enjoy, everybody. And definitely keep the faith.
