Hart to Hart

Over the weekend I had lunch with a friend of mine. Somehow the topic drifted towards when we were closeted and effeminate children. My lunch companion blurted out that he was excited to find out that Natalie Wood died. Because somehow this meant that Robert Wagner would be able to marry Stefanie Powers. Or, more importantly Jonathan Hart could really be married to Jennifer Hart. Seriously what gay boy in the ‘80s didn’t like Hart to Hart.

I didn’t know that Hart to Hart actually ran five seasons on ABC, with eight made for TV movies. When Jonathan and Jennifer got together I guess it was murder. Ratings murder. Sorry. I guess it comes down to the universal rule that little gay boys just love to watch millionaires become amateur detectives. Or, Stefanie Powers rocks.

Oh man, I loved Hart to Hart! Yeah, there was just something cool about Stefanie Powers. I wonder how well it would hold up to the test of time - and if it's worth seeing if Netflix has it?!

And who was their butler? Bosley? No...that was Charlie's Angels I think.

Max!

Sadly I shout out “Jonathan! Look out he has a gun!” way too often.

So long as you always do it at inappropriate times! ;-)

Let's face it, the Harts had NO friends... if you were invited round for dinner, the chances are you wouldn't make it to the cheese course!

I love H2H, it's on every Sunday morning right after that time travel show from the 80's where the main actor shot himself in the head with a prop gun that wasn't so propish.

I think Stephanie Powers was my girlfriend, right after Wonder Woman!!!!

Oh and don't forget Wilma Deering in all her hot, super shiny spandex!

That show was called Cover Up. It starred Jon Eric Hexum as a former Green Beret called Mac Harper. I "dreamed" of him as a little gay boy.

Sorry, and the time travel show was called "Voyagers!"Jon-Erik Hexum stars as Phineas Bogg. If they had posters of him, I would of had them hanging in my bedroom.
