Harts and Heroes

Kicked off a quick morning with breakfast and Hogan's Heroes. "Kommandant Schultz" is put in charge when Klink is out of town. Hogan encourages him to take command...then wonders if he's created a monster when the power goes to Schultz's head and he becomes more corrupt than Klink ever was.

Hurried off to work just as the episode ended. Work was a pain in the rear. I spent a lot of the time trying to clean the men's bathroom. I'd no sooner mop it than there would be a mess, or it would be clogged. By the end of the day, they gave up and slathered the door with "Out of Order" signs. (Again. For the second time this week.) All that, and I still had to sweep the store, round up trash and recycling, and gather carts. Thankfully, by the end of the day, I had help with the last-named from several high school students.

Hurried home the moment I could get out. Went straight into writing when I got in. Charles is panicking under the stern gaze of the Red King, until Richard recalls how the King destroyed their tea party. Brett chiming in too gives Charles confidence to accuse the Red King and start to tell the jury what the Red King is really after...

Broke for dinner at quarter of 7. Had leftovers while watching Match Game '74. The show starts off with jokes about what happened to the Ty De Bowl man and got crazier from there. Later on, there was a gag about what Brett threatens to do to the man with the buzzer who drives her crazy and comedian George Kirby did a great imitation of Edith and Archie Bunker from All In the Family

Did the dishes during Match Game PM. A gentleman in a very blue suit watched as Charles ripped his name off the Star Wheel when the audience insisted his "Code of" answer wasn't appropriate for "__ Arms." Joyce Bulifant was more nervous helping him win money with "Mill __" in the Head-to-Head.

Returned to Hogan's Heroes while making Apples Rolled In Autumn Cookies with the last tree-fresh apple. It's "Eight O'Clock and All Is Well" as new prisoner Captain Marsden (Monte Markham) arrives at the camp. He's handsome and popular with just about everyone...including Klink. Hogan's suspicious, especially when the Gestopo turns up just as they're about to destroy a supply train.

Hogan and the guys are supposed to use "The Big Record" to send messages home to their families. Hogan decides it would be perfect to record what the big wigs in the Rec Hall are saying instead. He convinces Schultz he has a great future singing career and gets in touch with Klink's musical side to get them in with the equipment.

Finished the night online with Hart to Hart. The Harts fall "Hart, Line, and Sinker" into a local plot when they go camping in a quiet mountain cabin. Their solitude is disrupted by their young caretaker, who is on the run from the local sheriff. He's convinced the boy murdered a young girl, but the Harts think it's more likely that the shady land surveyor and sleazy sheriff have something to do with it.
