Video Rating: 4 / 5
Fuck Perry mason. this was the shit…
The man who was too fat to walk!
So he sat in a wheelchair LOL
@DaveFromBrooklyn Actually, Cannon’s theme was composed by John Parker (CHiPs; Trapper John, M.D.) while Streets of San Francisco was written by Patrick Williams (Mary Tyler Moore; The Love Boat) and The Rookies was by Elmer Bernstein (The Ten Commandments; The Great Escape; Ghostbusters).
@bashbrannigan Can burros reproduce? Or is it Death Valley mules that are erectile dysfunctioned/dyslexic?
@williamg2552 Ooops. My mistake. Cheap TV trivia book…damn. Thanks for the correction!
It’s 2010, why are so many people obsessed that Burr was or was not gay? Get your heads out of the 1950s! It really isn’t important.
Yes, Quincy Jones wrote the theme (he “updated” it by 1971).
@Harvey3rdman Longstreet was not a lawyer. He was an insurance investigator.
@tacomadavid68 He was both gay and all man–I saw a documentary about him
Does anyone remember if Ironsides ever caught the guy who shot and crippled him?
@wigglywoman …just said it on “The Daily Show” today…….did it with the first synthesizer
@RetroJenny I agree. I’m enjoying Kojak on RTV every morning. they also show Emergency, Dragnet and Adam 12.
DVD’s supply my fix of Ironside and Mannix.
@tacomadavid68 Burr was 100% gay man. Or, in the words of Howard Stern’s dad, “GUESS WHO IS A POOF!?”
blood from a cats face
@tacomadavid68 Today you learned something new.
@tacomadavid68 Although I dissaprove, here is a section of the wikipedia entry. Because Burr lied about marriages, etc, he was later exposed;
Hiding in Plain Sight, a 2008 biography of Burr written by Michael Starr, claimed that Raymond Burr was homosexual, but hid his sexuality for most of his life out of fear that it would damage his career. He was in a 35-year relationship with Robert Benevides, who has also attested to Burr’s homosexuality
@MickeyLove01 He was not gay.. Burr was 100% man.
Wasn’t Ironside based on a real cop that was gunned down and confined to a wheelchair?
This show contributed to my lifelong fear of people in wheelchairs.
@wigglywoman Quincy Jones composed a few TV themes. Ironside, Sanford & Son,The Rookies, I believe The Streets of San Francisco and Cannon as well.
Season 4 of Ironside is to be released on October 19,2010 if the date doesn’t changed.
Burr was gay
@Harvey3rdman Isn’t that funny, though – I couldn’t have told you the actor for a million dollars, but by golly, I know the dog! LOL
