Default Report to Murphy

By looking down this page, I can see that two of my threads have thirty views and zero replies. Thirty years ago was 1982. I have mentioned on several occasions that, my favorite and my second favorite episode of "Gimme a Break!" were both broadcast in 1982. For those of you who have not read those threads, my favorite was "Katie Steals Julie's Jock" and my second favorite was the "Emergency". I have also mentioned other things that went on during that year. Anyone who is interested can go ahead and read, "Barbara Mandrell" and "Jim Thorpe". In any event, I would now like to commemorate the thirty views of the two threads on this page by mentioning a short-lived sitcom that came out that year. The sitcom debuted on CBS and it was called "Report to Murphy". Has anyone here ever heard of it? I do not think that I ever saw an episode, but I remember seeing the ads for it. I have recently researched this topic and learned that Michael Keaton was the star. I also learned that only six episodes were made!

I saw a few episodes of Report To Murphy. It was on after Private Benjamin on Monday nights. Murphy was a parole officer and ISTR the set used for the office in which he worked was realistically drab and utilitarian looking.

It was an ensemble sort of thing and I remember pretty much zero about what went on in any episodes.

Thank you very much for the information! And by the way, "Private Benjamin" is another show from the early eighties that I remember.
