Kodiak's Place In History
3 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

According to the other post, Kodiak was canceled after two episodes. Very likely. Other shows have been canceled much quicker.

So no one remembers Kodiak, with Clint Walker. It wasn't watched. I certainly don't remember it from when I was a kid at the age of 8.

So what is Kodiak's distinction? What makes Kodiak a standout in television history?

Kodiak is the show that replaced the Brady Bunch when it was canceled after it's miraculous five season run.

The family Brady was sent off the air after Greg's graduation for this forgotten show about an Alaskan ranger. They have certainly outlasted him, that's for sure.

But I guess it was the decision of one fellow,

The network programmer, who thought he had a hunch,

That Kodiak would really get high ratings,

And perhaps even outdo the Brady Bunch.
