    I vaguely recall the show.
    It was called 'The Clifton House Mystery.'

    But the show that I really enjoyed was the childrens' show called Nobody's House, which was aired in 1976.

    Oh please, Starsky and Hutch was funky and watchable. As for Gordon Jackson, he'd always be drinking that malt Scotch Whisky. I need to taste that drink to find out what he saw in it
