Love the Cannon / Barnaby block from 3am to 5am.

Me too! And Mannix right b4 Cannon. There's no P.I. shows like this anymore! Rockford Files was good too. And they all had good theme song/music intros too.
(My score was 9/10)

Loved Buddy Ebsen as BJ. But believe bringing on Mark Shera ruined the series. It seems every show centered around him and he just was not interesting.

Plus they always had to have him 'get the girl' at the end of his starring episodes.

11/11 I went with David Banner on #5 but I feel Bruce Banner would also have been correct since his name was David Bruce Banner.

10/11, I didn't think I would get that many correct. I guess, I have seen most of the Barnaby episodes. I always watch Mannix, Cannon, & Barnaby Jones on late nights.

William Shatner in a beard? Now that is not something you see every day.

I remember that episode of Barnaby. Of course Leonard Nimoy also had a beard in the famous Star Trek Epsiode "MIrror Mirror".

10 out of 11. I misread the Hagman question and chose J.R. Then I read the question again and realized that I screwed up.

I remember seeing, when I was a kid, that MAD Magazine did a parody of Barnaby Jones. They titled it, "Barnicle Groans". Very hysterical and spot on! 😂

10 of 11 for me. I missed the Ridgemont High one.
