Oh my! “CHiPS”! I tuned in every week to watch Ponch and Jon. (I had a little crush on Jon.
I found out the actor who played the boss/head of the unit, Robert Pine, is the father of actor Chris Pine. Small world.
OMG! “Emergency!” I totally loved that show as a kid and watched every week. My favorite characters were John and Nurse Dixie. The paramedic stuff was fascinating to me as a kid.
Forgot to mention my favorite performance of the night at the AMAs. New Edition and New Kids On the Block performed together a medley of their respective hits. It was great and everyone looked so good even after all these years. I was a huge New Edition fan when they first came out and it was wonderful to see them perform those songs again. I wasn’t really into NKOTB in the past, but they did well here at the AMAs. Both groups sounded good, but New Edition really nailed it. Loved the shoutout to Boston at the very end as I used to live in Dorchester. It was so nice to see BTS dancing and vibing along to this performance and giving respect to these boy group seniors, especially since these groups and songs came out before they were even born. (And to be honest, they probably not familiar with them so there’s no nostalgic glow) For real there would be no modern boy groups without New Edition for sure. BTS always give the best reactions at these award shows, IMO, no matter who is performing or what type of music is playing, BTS always listens and seems to have fun, even if it’s not familiar to them.
Here’s the performance for anyone interested:
