The Rookies!!

For the past few days we’ve been talking about which tv show dates us the most…for  me it would be “The Rookies” starring Michael Ontkean, George Standford Brown and Kate Jackson.

OMG I believe my first tv show star crush was Canadian actor Michael Ontkean of the 1972-1976 tv series The Rookies.  I was just 12 years old but boy did he look hot!

I would drool over his pictures in Tiger Beat magazine (the first introduction to the magazine was the several copies I had found in the local cottage dump!)  My parents wouldn’t let my brother and I watch much tv back then but Monday nights were reserved for The Rookies and I made sure I watched every episode. A childhood friend and I would also sit on the front porch of my parents house where we  would write stories in our notebooks and create episodes for the Rookies. It was probably the first time the writing bug began for me. lol

Happily I have just discovered that The Rookies First Season & Second Season (the only two seasons I believe with Michael Ontkean before he left the show ) are out on dvd…and so I plan to get myself a copy of each and swoon over my main man as well as the other cutie guys on The Rookies. Woot!

Does anyone remember the Rookies? Or am I too old? LOL
