A bright memory from my childhood but how did it end???
2 February 2009 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this series faithfully as a kid and how much more dramatic and real it seemed than a lot of the fairy tale TV back then. I am confident that it would hold up on TV today were it ever replayed To me it sort of leads to Easy Rider. It seemed like a manifestation of Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run. The acting was wonderful and I can still see the two main characters Tod and Buzz, not to mention that car. I can even remember the theme music which I have not heard for over 40 years. What a shame that Maharis left the series. That killed it. It was filmed largely on location, a novelty for those days. It showcased the corvette before it became an American classic. I wonder to if buddy films were inspired by this great show. The main writer was Sterling Silliphant who won the Oscar for In the Heat of the Night and he knew how to write drama. I wish it could be rented. One of my great regrets is never seeing how it ended. I only wish IMDb has a full episode guide. If anyone knows how to find out how it all ended, please let me know.
