When I was around 12, I used to stay up late and read in the family TV room, as I liked the silence. I have a big family, so getting some time just for myself was rare.
Then one night in 1984, I was bored of reading and I switched on the TV. There was a show called "Hunter" just starting. I was just about to change the channel, 'cuz police shows were not my thing.
But then, I saw HIM.
A tall hunk of MAN with broad shoulders, black sunglasses, and tight blue jeans. I had never seen a man with a huge bulge like the one he had!
Of course, I was sold.
I watched the show and sat very close to the TV so I wouldn't miss any scenes of his very visible bulge.
As this was "pre Internet searching" all I could do was watch the re-runs at night to get my fill.
