Wekk – Ep 77 – Growing up 70’s – Ironside

Katy, Kellie, and Mandy chat about the latest news – Terry Pratchett’s unfinished work, Cassini spacecraft, and Venus – and then discuss a fantastic book – The Flavor Thesaurus by Niki Segnit – as well as Katy’s penchant for creating meals she believes are the “best that ever was.” (She’s slightly delusional, but in a good way.)

Then in Growing up 70’s (starting at 28:30) Katy and Kellie discuss Ironside, staring Raymond Burr. It was a show with great writing, a fantastic musical theme by Quincy Jones, and directors that knew how to use stand-ins and teleprompters for their main star (tune in to find out why).

Wekk – Ep 74 – Growing Up 70’s – WKRP in Cincinnati

Gross news about bugs, facts about coffee naps, a run down of the D23 highlights, and a revelation about which of us would snort chocolate (and MORE) in our first section.

In the second segment (starts at 30:00) Kellie and Katy delve into the wonderful, wacky world of WKRP in Cincinnati. In our fan requested episode we talk about the great friendship between Jennifer and Bailey, how hilarious Les was (Katy is now going to tape off her own office), and how the creators and cast worked together to create a truly great show. Enjoy!

Wekk – Ep 70 – Growing up 70’s CHiPs

This week we start off with a discussion about Imposter Syndrome. Credit to Neil Gaiman who recently blogged about it and prompted the discussion. Katy, Kellie, and Mandy realized they all suffer from it to varying degrees. Then we talk about Monstrous Child by Francesca Simon, Divinity Original Sin II Game Master Mode (so great), a heartwarming story about Ed Hardy (jazz musician and dementia patient), and the new iPhone X.

Then for Growing up 70’s (at the 33.25 mark) Kellie and Katy discuss CHiPs. We may have loved the show as children, but it was a difficult review (and often so hysterical all you hear is wheezing laughter). Enjoy!

Growing up 70’s – The Brady Bunch

Katy and Kellie cover The Brady Bunch in this week’s episode. Katy has wonderful memories of watching the show as a kid…Kellie – not so much. Also, Katy drank waaaaaay too much and insults pretty much everyone. She apologizes. And then finally, there is a mini-blip of audio difficulty at the very end, but the conversation was too funny to edit out. Enjoy!!

Growing up 70’s – Barney Miller

Barney Miller was created by improvisational artists and had a cast of talented actors. The show lasted eight seasons and, while female roles were scarce and no one should watch the first season, the impact of the show has lasted for a generation. Kellie and Katy chat about the show and sprinkle in some “Wekk Behind the Scenes.”

Growing Up 70’s – The Incredible Hulk

What do Les Miserables and The Incredible Hulk (the 70’s television show) have in common? Quite a lot. Katy and Kellie break it down for you and then get sidetracked in a game of Avenger – Marry, Kill and Fornicate. It is informational in a way only a couple of geeks can manage. Warning – you will laugh and there is science discussion. Proceed at your own risk.

Growing up 70’s – All in the Family

A big thank you to Philippe from the Average Geek Show for requesting this. It is possibly our favorite 70’s episode yet. Kellie and Katy go into extensive detail on All in the Family: the actors, producers, set design. And we share our thoughts as to why the show couldn’t be made today…or why we think we are living it. Warning, this episode gets a little political…not too much, but a little.

Growing up 70’s – Laverne and Shirley

**This episode was recorded a few weeks ago, before Garry Marshall passed. We talk about him and his genius a little bit, but need to discuss it more. We’ll save that for the Happy Days episode. Until then, enjoy…

It is quite possible that Katy and Kellie liked Laverne and Shirley too much. There is a lot of gushing…you’ve been warned. Thankfully there are also a few behind the scenes details you might not have known, like what the heck was that song they sang as they skipped down the street in the opening credits?

CARTOONS!!! Finally, Kellie and Katy discuss shows that really matter. Oddly enough, the original Scooby Doo only aired for twenty-five episodes over two seasons, but those fantastic mystery machine episodes sparked something in all who watched and none of us were ever able to let it go.

Growing up 70’s – The Odd Couple

Remember The Odd Couple? No, not that one, that one. No, the other one. Yes, the television show in the 70’s with Jack Klugman and Tony Randall.

It started as a play (by Neil Simon) became a movie (with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau) and was translated to television with Jack Klugman and Tony Randall in the 70’s. Katy and Kellie discuss this and more (like why there wasn’t a hallway on the set in season 2) in this weeks episode.

Growing Up 70’s – Ep 5 – Wonder Woman

Lynda Carter is gorgeous. I think we’ve said enough. But if we wanted to add more I guess we should say that Wonder Woman was campy fun. Katy and Kellie learned some surprising things about this show, such as the fact that the first season was set in the 40’s, but the last two were set in the 70’s. From the music to the credits – pretty much everything except for the plastic doll in the invisible plane – was pure comic book cheese…and we loved it.

Growing Up 70’s – Ep 4 – Emergency!

Remember that show with cute paramedics and overly serious doctors? Emergency! first aired in 1972 and continued until 1979. Katy and Kellie chat about how much of it they didn’t remember. Katy’s memory pretty much stopped at how cute John Gage was. Kellie, of course, remembered more. (This was also an episode where one half of a ginger beer was taking its toll on Katy.) So lots of facts and very little context. Enjoy!

Remember The Hardy Boys? Didn’t we all have crushes on Parker Stevenson and Shaun Cassidy? Or was that just Kellie and Katy? I’m pretty sure we weren’t alone. In this episode we find out that it might have been better to leave this one way back in our youthful memories, however, we did learn that Kellie’s mom might have been hiding something about her “other mother.” As per usual we discuss the clothes, the credits, the cast, and the stories (as well as the editing and the scene with Frank in his underwear).
