Hello, EGTea: Also, "The Monkees" first-run series was on NBC, not CBS. (CBS aired Monkees reruns during 1969-'72, with ABC doing the same, in '72-'73.) Cordially, John Turco <jtur@concentric.net> PS: The original poster mentioned, "Chiller Theatre (WIIC 1963-1977)." What is "Chiller Theatre", and the meaning of "WIIC?"

Literally all I remember of it -- aside from that opening credit bit -- was one goofy bit where Gazzara and some other gut were discussing something while sailing in a small catamaran on a lake somewhere, and at the end of the scene the shot switched to a long shot of the catamaran capsizing with voice-overs of both of them going "WHOAAHH!" Was the show always that goofy? -- William December Starr <wdstarr@panix.com>

I have such good memories of watching the Sixties TV show "Run For Your Life' as a kid. Starring Ben Gazzara, it had a great plot. Athletic, intelligent young man of the world - a bit like James Bond - discovers he has a rare disease that is always fatal. He's given one, maybe two years to live , or however long the show can get renewed. He "has to cram 30 years if living into one... or two..." as the intro dramatically states. The opening credits is unforgettable: a POV shot of a racecar zooming down the Bonneville Salt Flats at hundreds of miles an hour. Is it just me, or does anybody else fondly remember this show? Any news of it coming to TV/DVD??
