Part 1 of my conversation with guest Ric Dube as we dissect an episode of a classic 1970s detective show. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from The Night Marchers and Divine Fits.

Show notes:

- Recorded at More Lost Time world HQ

- Inspired by MST3K and Rifftrax, we're commenting while watching video

- Watch the episode along with us at the CompCon YouTube channel

- Dube apologizes for his last booze-soaked appearance on the show

- Barnaby Jones was a spinoff of the private investigator drama Cannon

- We're watching the first episode of the series

- Star Buddy Ebsen was Tin Man in Wizard of Oz and Jed Clampett on Beverly Hillbillies

- A Quinn Martin production

- Cool theme song

- Cannon's perpetually hungry

- Barnaby Jones' son is murdered in the opening scene

- Ebsen's performance is flat as a pancake

- A modern-day Barnaby Jones would be played by Hugh Laurie

- "You have a rather distinctive silhouette"

- Kumar confuses Lee Meriwether with Mary Ann Mobley--a common mistake

- Barnaby is decidedly anti-China

- "Could I trouble you for a glass of milk?"

- Dube: Blackmailers never say goodbye on the phone

- By golly, Barnaby figures it all out

- The Random '70s Detective Show Plot Generator

- Next week, we take on an Aaron Spelling production

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
The Night Marchers - All Hits

Divine Fits - For Your Heart
