Trivia

The "Woody", a 1950 Mercury wood paneled station wagon, was wrecked in Mod Squad: The Death of Wild Bill Hannachek (1969). At the end of the episode, the Squad watches their "old buddy" burn, and Linc utters the classic line, "Good bye, old paint". In the reunion movie, The Return of Mod Squad (1979), Pete is rich, so he buys a woody when the three of them unite for the task of finding the bad guy. See more »

Julie Barnes was my idol
4 August 2005 | by jgarner136See all my reviews

Watching this show as a teenager, Julie was my idol; hip, intelligent, beautiful, with a cool job, great clothes, and hot guy friends.

Seriously, Mod Squad was a well-done show with interesting characters. When Aaron Spelling, with Danny Thomas and Sheldon Leonard, ran the show, it was very good. Later, when Harve Bennett replaced Spelling, it went down a bit, but was still worth watching just for the stars: Michael Cole, Clarence Williams III, and Peggy Lipton. No insult intended for the stars of the movie, but these three will always be the Mod Squad, with Tige Andrews as Captain Greer. I would still rather watch episodes of the show than the movie.

For a young girl living in a small town, Mod Squad was a window into another world, giving me a glimpse of life outside my boundaries. What I learned about being cool back then, I learned from Julie Barnes.
