This documentary of the Rolling Stones' 1969 US tour has become a legendary, harrowing symbol of the tragic demise of the "Peace and Love" era. After a successful tour across the US, the Rolling Stones gave a free December concert at Altamont Speedway in California with the Grateful Dead, Ike and Tina Turner, Jefferson Airplane, and the Flying Burrito Brothers. The band unwisely selected the Hells Angels to provide security, and the bikers resorted to violence to keep the stoned, restless, and often naked crowd in line. The result: dozens of injuries and the on-screen stabbing of a young black man (during "Sympathy for the Devil") by one of the concert's staff security. In a manipulative but effective move, the Maysles brothers filmed Mick Jagger in the editing room witnessing the on-camera murder for the first time. The film also works as a rock-and-roll document, capturing the band at their most relaxed, intoxicating, and electrifying.

This situation comedy takes place in New York's City Hall.

Helping Mike is Carter, probably the least quirky member of the mayor's staff and Nikki and James. Stuart and Paul are two members of the staff who cause just as much problems. Mike's secretary, who joined the show during the second season was Stacy. Mike's girlfriend during the first season was Ashley, but the character was dropped, his next girlfriend, during the following season was Laurie, and during the third season it was Nikki, and in the fourth season it was Caitlin Moore, the mayor's campaign manager.

From creator Ralph Bakshi, the groundbreaking filmmaker behind classic pieces of adult animation such as Fritz the Cat and Heavy Traffic, Spicy City is an anthology of sexy and risque animated stories in a futuristic city with a seamy side. The original name of the series was to be Spicy Detective, based on the pulp fiction type comic of the same name, but with a futuristic, Blade Runner type setting. When the show finally aired, however, the name had been changed to Spicy City. Michelle Phillips voices Raven, your "hostess with the mostess," who introduces the stories. Spicy City was a truly groundbreaking series -- it was the second animated series with a "TV-MA" rating, following Todd McFarlane's Spawn, and both shows were on the air long before South Park or any related shows (despite the creators of the latter series taking all the credit for the "adult cartoon" boom that came to pass).
The slacker son of a rich hotel magnate finds his cushy lifestyle threatened when his widower dad gets engaged to a gorgeous young aerobics instructor, who moves in with them, along with her 10-year-old son. On Pauly's side are Sumi, their wisecracking Asian housekeeper, and Burger, Pauly's childhood friend and the owner of a video store. Flashbacks and fantasy dream sequences are used liberally. Thrown on the air months after it was filmed, "Pauly" was paired with Married with Children (a good companion, though the series was on its last legs at the time) and Melrose Place!(???) Ratings were lower than low, so the series quickly left the airwaves, leaving two of the seven episodes unaired.

Glitter is an American television drama series broadcast by the ABC network during the 1984-1985 season.
The series was produced by Aaron Spelling and was set behind the scenes of a top entertainment magazine titled "Glitter" and attempted to combine the urgency of journalism and business politics with the glamorous lifestyles of the rich and famous featured in the pages of the magazine. The leading cast members were David Birney, Morgan Brittany and Arthur Hill.
The format of the series was similar to two other popular ABC shows which were also produced by Aaron Spelling; The Love Boat and Hotel, in that each week it heavily featured high profile guest appearances from famous celebrities, such as Ginger Rogers and Cyd Charisse. Unlike the other series, Glitter was not a ratings success. The first three episodes aired in September 1984, and then the show was taken off the air until December 1984 when three more episodes were shown. Ratings did not improve and the series was cancelled. The remaining eight episodes were shown during December 1985 as part of ABCs late-night lineup.
Despite its lack of success in the US, Glitter was sold abroad. It was shown in the UK on BBC1 in the summer of 1985.
After his partner was murdered, veteran plain clothes Detective T.J. Hooker had reverted back to his former role as Sergeant, and returned to the beat to rid the streets of the type of scum that was responsible for his partner's death.
Back in uniform, Hooker was assigned to train the academy recruits, and was partnered with brash, sometimes hot-headed young rookie Vince Romano. With Romano much his junior, Hooker acted as his trainer and mentor on both a professional and social level. The age difference generally being the key hook of the partnership, the pair quickly became good friends and a good team. Hooker's tough, no-nonsense ways saw him often clashing with station Captain Sheridan, but he always got the job done and was highly respected as a result. Seen in the short first season, mostly on desk duty, was Officer Vicky Taylor.

Smiles everyone, Smiles! So began this long-running (7 season) series which was one of the ABC Network's anthology/guest-cast series (along with The Love Boat) that proved wildly popular. Each week two guests came to "Fantasy Island" to get their wish/fantasy fulfilled. Their mysterious host, the debonair and suave white-suited Mr. Roarke, would do the sometimes impossible and grant them their wishes...but there was always some twist to the fantasy, letting the guest learn something about themselves or get something they weren't expecting. Best remembered for the presence of Herve Villechaize as the diminuitive "Tattoo" and his cry of "De plane! De plane!" the show proved popular enough to go the distance and then spawn a brief revival/remake in the 1990s. A remake, Fantasy Island (1998)in the late 1990's was not as successful as its predecessor.
