David Jannsen Was One Of The Best Actors, Ever
24 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Angie Dickenson and David Jannsen, along with supporting actors, were at their best in "A Sensitive Passionate Man."

I have often wondered why the TV networks do not run more of Janssen's films.

I'm middle aged and I remember as a little boy my "first TV series" with the original "Fugitive" with Janssen.

Contrast TV network "programming" today with what it was in the 1960's and 1970s and I'll go back in time, even with "fewer channels" and even some black and white of the mid-1960's.

Today, I am going to turn off the satellite dish and save $700 a year ($14,000.00 over 20 years.) What isn't garbage has seven and eight commercials at a time. The very few TV shows worth watching break up several times with seven or eight commercials and I sit there and wonder what it was I was even watching.

I have recently purchased several DVD's---no commercials---and one was "A Sensitive Passionate Man."

When I turn off the satellite TV at the end of this month, that will give me $70 a month to buy such DVD's with and I can watch what I want, when I want, without long, long commercial breaks.

I believe the TV, cable and satellite industries are making huge mistakes today. Viewership in down. Maybe many people are on the internet as I am now.

People who watched TV in the 60's and 70's remember LOCAL TV programming where there were actual local hosts on TV in local markets.

We had "Bob Hope" specials, Ed Sullivan who gave us a variety of talent, etc.

In my mind, TV, cable and satellite have been ruined by GREED. I began this article about "A Sensitive Passionate Man." This is what got me off on the topic of the waste of today's TV, generally speaking. There may be a few exceptions.

Give me the shows of the 60s and 70s---with far less "technical" improvements, and I will give you everything that is on cable and satellite TV today.

Bring back Angie Dickenson and David Janssen type acting and fare.
