I grew up a child of the sixties when Warner Bros produced most of the nighttime viewing. Surfside 6 was my favorite and regardless what others might say, I found the acting strong and riveting. The scenery when viewed in black and white loses something, true, but the romance of the location comes through. And the actors can only speak what the writers pen. While I wasn't as intrigued with Troy Donahue, I especially loved the characters played by Van Williams, Diane McBain, Lee Patterson, and Marguerita Sierra. I remember how wonderful I thought Miami Beach looked, liked it so much that's where I went on my first vacation after I started working. There was actually a houseboat there, across from the Fontainebleau on Indian Creek. The boat looked a lot different than the series showed, but this was several years later, 1966. I will forever identify with this show and thanks to Goodlife TV for bringing it back to us once more.
