Inspired by a post by Rolando at Urbanite, I started revisiting some TV shows of yesteryear that were set in New York. Posted a few yesterday. EV Grieve commenter Eric suggested Bosom Buddies. As he wrote, "Pretending to be a woman to have an apt. in NYC, now that's gritty." Indeed! (Sidenote: It's too bad that both leads from Bosom Buddies faded into obscurity!)
Anyway, here are the intros to a handful of TV shows from the 1970s and 1980s that show some NYC scenery. I missed a lot. Feel free to offer any suggestions. (Oh, and I couldn't find McCLoud...)
Sorry, commercial break.
This includes the opening scene of Bridget Loves Bernie, one of my favorites -- a wealthy Catholic woman marries a Jewish cab driver. Ran for one year, 1973-74. Lead actor David Birney went on the play the lead in the understandably short-lived Serpico TV series.
Time for more commercials
Our sponsors insist we close with more commercials. Sorry.
