Probably Maureen, mostly because I only know her as Marcia Brady. Just Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!! :)

I've seen Bosley in other roles, including MURDER, SHE WROTE and his starring role in FATHER DOWLING MYSTERIES. Also he guested on BONANZA as a shifty and comical sort of guy, twice!

I'm not as familiar with Ricky. I remember seeing him in RIO BRAVO but that's it. I didn't watch OZZIE AND HARRIET.

What's the worse miscast in The Streets of San Francisco for an actor/actress is thought of as wholesome:

1) Tom Bosley - The crook in "Going Home"
2) Ricky Nelson - The pimp in "Harem"
3) Maureen McCormick - The prostitute in "No More Minor Vices"
4) Other

I vote for Maureen McCormick.

For the record, I like the Ricky Nelson episode.

Mike, what happened to your stars? Now we don't know what you think of the episode.

I don't think I cared much for "Harem" when I saw it. Of course that was a long time ago. Rick Nelson as a flute-playing sort of hippy pimp who lives on the street and wears sandals I guess was kind of an original idea. The typical 70s pimp was a black man with a big afro wearing lots of jewelry and some wild-colored suits and platform shoes, driving a cushioned pimpmobile. Still, I don't recall this one being particularly memorable. It was, however, written by John D.F. Black who wrote some of the very best FIVE-O episodes, including my personal favorites like "Rest in Peace, Somebody", "Candy and a Gun", "The Box", "Yesterday Died..."

On Going Home:
Mr. Mike,you make some good points on Eddie. Alcatraz housed some of the fiercest and dangerous criminals. Eddie doesn't seem to be that kind of criminal. It was also uncanny how the bad guys could find him. I like that he placed the money in the bear. Probably a 2 1/2 type of star rating. JC

Interesting that you brought that up Ringfire, because way back when, I did have Bosley and Doyle mixed up. They are so very similar.

By the way, I saw that Phil Silvers Gilligan's Island episode again yesterday. 50 years later, I'm still hysterically laughing. Silvers is a comedic genius and I think you need to watch that episode again. IMDB raters didn't back me up on Blue Skies, but they strongly back me up on "The Producer". The Mosquitoes episode is right there too with only the radioactive vegetable seeds episode rated higher.

Exactly, Fred. In fact Tom Bosley reminds me of the other "Bosley", played by David Doyle on CHARLIE'S ANGELS. Doyle is actually even more slovenly, mostly due to his speech impediment (or lisp). I'm not saying I'd confuse the two if you put them side by side but they're similar in stature and play similar types of roles. And both are Bosley! I think both would be a perfect fit for this SOSF role.

I agree with Ringfire that Bosley was cast appropriately as the non assuming crook in "Going Home". Plus, I don't think he's well known as "Mr. C" at that time. If there's a miscast issue, it's the "slovenly" Bosley hooking up with the "bombshell" North.

Nonetheless, "Going Home" is a solid episode. 3 stars at least.

Mike, I'm not sure I understand why you think Bosley was miscast. You say it's not because he played Howard Cunningham on HAPPY DAYS. What other reason is there? Bosley is short and unassuming-looking (even a bit slovenly) and seems just fine for this type of shifty role. It's not like he's playing some ruthless hitman - that would be a stretch. I have no problem with his role here. He's played similar types of characters trying to hit it big in other shows as well. Speaking of TV dads, I'd say Robert Reed is much more iconic as Mr. Brady and we don't have a problem accepting him as a crook in both his FIVE-O appearances.

BTW, how come the stars disappeared? :!cry:
