This week on It Was a Thing on TV we look at an adaptation of a popular movie that was made before the current adaptation of a popular movie while living in high society.
First, in honor of the “A League of Their Own” Amazon Prime series, this episode takes a look at the “blink and you’ll miss it” television version of one of the breakout movie hits of 1992. This version had a handful of characters reprising their roles in one-off appearances and its TV fate may have been set in stone by a certain organization.
Then, in episode 61, we talked about the season when NBC owned and operated stations had primetime starting at 7:30. We talked about one of those 5 shows, We Got it Made, in episode 66. Another show from that experiment is this show’s focus. Marblehead Manor follows the antics of a wealthy family and their staff at their palatial residence.
