Our regularly scheduled program this week, Zardoz, has been postponed until next week, as the bossman will be going on a Top Secret/Hush-hush mission. So, not one to keep a livetweet slot empty, he gave me the keys to the #Bond_age_ offices again to do with as I will (he really should stop doing that; I never clean up afterwards). My mind immediately flooded with ideas. Mexican Wrestling! A DVD Theatre livetweet! A Who knows what?! Being as indecisive as I am, I thought I’d take the easy way out and put it up to a vote. So I did, and my fellow livetweeters responded. They voted for who knows what, which meant I had to figure out exactly what what was (does that make sense? I feel it should, but what do I know?) As usual, youtube had the answer: TV shows. It was time for me to do another #Bond_age_TV. But which program?
I wanted to choose a program that fit the #Bond_age_ mold. I’d considered the classic Columbo episode Identity Crisis, which featured Patrick McGoohan in one of his best villain roles, but didn’t like the versions on youtube. I quickly whittled my choices down to three: the Tony Curtis/Roger Moore show The Persuaders; The Robert Wagner series It Takes A Thief, and Magnum P.I. With these three choices, I asked my fellow livetweeters to once again vote, and vote they did. The winner was Magnum P.I with 43% of the votes. So I’m pleased to announce that this Wednesday’s livetweet will be the Magnum P.I two-parter All For One. Magnum, T.C., Rick and Higgins travel to Cambodia with an old war buddy to rescue some American POWs. This episode guest stars Robert Forster, so already makes it a winner in my book. So please join me tomorrow night at 9 pm EST for #Bond_age_TV Happy Fun Time!
