Using a set of trading card-sized reproductions of TV Guide covers, we wing our way through a new game, The TV Guide Card Game. Like baseball cards, each card features stats and trivia on the back, and Rick uses that to see if Mike can guess the cover subjects. Play along and maybe learn some "fun facts" about some of your favorite BOTNS-era shows!

The Doctors was a daytime soap on NBC from 1963 to 1982. A generous uploader posted this clip with a very young Paul Michael Glaser from a 1967 episode, and we included it in this week's Starsky and Hutch playlist:
The show was forgotten for years, or so I thought. It seems to have a fervent following. As you can tell from the watermark on the clip, Retro TV picked up reruns and started airing it in 2014, though it does not have all the episodes. Apparently it does not have access to anything before 1967, but you can see episodes on demand here.

*The wrestling episode is in the same season, "The Golden Age" in Season 4.
Buckle your seat belt and cinch your cardigan because this week we're hitting the mean streets of Bay City with Starsky and Hutch! Things get harry for the boys after someone poisons Starksy with a deadly neurotoxin. As they race against a ticking clock to find the culprit and an antidote, they make time for their emotions and a fair amount of proprety damage. All in a day's work for these 1970s stalwarts.
