Of course that is not a complete list. The production values in the late 70s and early 80s left a bad aftertaste. However, in the new series, they must have filmed that gravel pit from all angles now and used the same hospital in several episodes. Still, those details make the show good because the actors work around the limitations and still produce a good product. Stay Nerdy out there until next time!
