It Was a Thing on TV – Episodes 319 & 320 – Mr. President/Fish

This week on It Was a Thing on TV we talk about the Presidency and the episode that you picked for us to cover!

First, with the election season we felt it was appropriate to visit this relevant dramedy turned comedy with George C. Scott from FOX’s early days.

Then, in October, we asked you to vote on which of three candidates you wanted us to cover as our Election Day episode.  Your winner was Fish, the spin-off of Barney Miller about Phil Fish’s home life with his wife and five precocious scamps.
