Give me that good old time theme song music and character quality!
29 December 2006 | by r-edensonSee all my reviews

As I grow older, I have more times when a old TV show theme song and lyrics will pop back into my head and it won't go away for a couple of days. The Everglades was such a series. The tag lyric was "Movin' ever movin' through the Everglades." I wish I could find the soundtrack of that song, just to confirm that my memory is accurate. Although I was not yet a teen when this show was on TV, and it only ran one or two seasons at most, it seems it had a profound impact on many of us boomers. Maybe it was that catchy name "Lincoln Vail" who patrolled the swamps stopping crime and saving people from alligator dinnertime, but most of all, I remember that very cool boat propelled by a huge fan that Lincoln drove through the swamps to reach his objective or save the day. I would love to see a few of those old episodes even if just to hear that catchy theme music again and bring back the innocence and openness of youth again. There was a certain kind of timelessness about those episodic TV shows that have faded into oblivion here in the US, that our youth today could do well to see instead of all those cheap production reality TV shows with wackos being revered and showcased for their nonconformity for the sake of nonconformity, like all the other tattooed and pierced and punctured kids today. No production costs to bring back some of these old shows like Everglades, Whirlybirds, Circus Boy & Fury. The shows where character and morality were on display for kids instead of today's aberrants & freak shows passing as youth media entertainment. Many of today's shows haven't even sprung for cost of theme songs let alone screenwriters.
