Still great after almost 50 years
12 November 1999 | by TC-4See all my reviews

When I was a child of 9 in 1951, Boston Blackie came on TV in my area each Sat. at 7PM. The show was on for 2 seasons and about 2 more years of repeats. It was always at 7PM on Sat. I never saw it again ever anywhere. I did buy some tapes about 5 years ago from a collector but unfortunately the copies are not very good. I would love to see these come on some cable channel such as Nick. Even Columbia House would be OK, at least the prints would be OK. The few episodes that I do have I always watch at 7PM Sat. to bring me back to that time. I loved the chemistry between Blackie, Mary and Faraday. Unfortunately most people never heard of such a show and now watch stupid sitcoms.
