RETURN OF THE SAINT debuted forty years ago today:


I like this as much as the original Roger Moore incarnation.

I always thought Ian Ogilvy might have made a good Bond, too.

Was this a reboot? I don't know if the terminology existed back then, or if it was meant to be in the same canon as the Moore series, but it was a lot of fun. I'd say it was an underrated gem. Sadly, it only lasted one season.

It's ripe for rediscovery, in my view.

This is one of those shows I remember watching, but can't remember a thing about. 

I do, however, have a few DVDs from the Moore series, and I enjoy those very much.

Apparently the original plan was for Ogilvy to play the son of the original Simon Templar but in the end they just went with an updated version.

Great theme tune.

I remember just about nothing about this other than the theme which I agree was fun... it was on late night in the States and I used to catch it when I'd get home from being out in HS.

Must've never aired in the U.S., because I've never heard of it before.
