1970s / Salvage 1 - Forgotten TV Show
Andy Griffith starred in two memorable TV series--but he also was involved in a few stinkers too. In 1979 he played the central character in a far-fetched ABC adventure/sci-fi series titled Salvage 1. Griffith played Harry Broderick, an eccentric junk dealer with high aspirations. In the series' pilot episode, he and his crew built a rocket to fly to the moon to retrieve the space junk abandoned by the NASA astronauts! Later episodes were a little bit more plausible. (For example, one centered on Broderick's crew trying to find a cache of Confederate gold from the Civil War.) Salvage 1 premiered on January 29, 1979. Not surprisingly, the show never really caught on with viewers, and it was not renewed for the fall season. Nevertheless, ABC tried to resurrect it in November 1979 as a replacement for two other short-lived series. Seven new episodes were made but only three aired before ABC pulled the plug for good.
