Last night, after the meal had been cleared and the dishes washed, I sat down in front of the TV and popped in a bootleg DVD from this 1974-1976 NBC series starring Claude Akins and Frank Converse.
This series hit the air at the start of the CB craze, but it really doesn't have much to do with that. It's just the story of two long-haul truckers and the adventures they have on the open road. The show was shot on location all across America, so it's an interesting look at the U-S during the mid-70's. Akins and Converse are great to watch. The DVD I got also has the original commercials, which makes it even more interesting.
