Pic of the Day: “Set Up City” revisited

Today we take another look at the Baretta episode “Set Up City”, directed by Curtis Harrington. It first aired on October 29, 1975. Grumpy jewel thief Joe Dineen inspects the swag from his latest heist.

Sure would be nice if the powers-that-be could get around to finally releasing subsequent seasons of Baretta on DVD (the first season is the only one commercially available). Then Timothy could get rid of that silly SUN TV logo that keeps showing up on his clothes.

Today we take another look at “That Sister Ain’t No Cousin,” the third of four Baretta episodes in which Timothy appeared. It was first broadcast on January 19, 1977. El Greco is a sinister drug lord obsessed with ancient Greek culture (hmm, must be why they call him that). Clearly he enjoys his work.

Oh boy, I can hear my husband now: “Ah, I see he’s wearing his SUN TV jacket!” Yes, dear. I’m guessing the show was originally recorded on videotape from SUN TV in Canada. Apparently, the Baretta Season One box set didn’t sell well enough for Universal to consider releasing subsequent seasons. A shame, truly. I do hope they revisit the idea.
