A Fireball Pop Classic… BEN CASEY #bencasey #classicTV #classictelevision


The other night I watched a couple of episodes of BEN CASEY that my Pop wrote back in the 60’s. It was amazing how they’d use “dramatic pauses” about every 3.5 minutes. If you did that nowadays, we’d assume you forgot your lines and then tweet like crazy what a lame actor you were, ending up on Mean Tweets with Jimmy Kimmel.

But, alas… this was BEN CASEY. Serious drama for a serious time. The story was pretty rock solid, though. Almost Twilight Zoney, but dad knew how to rip a script, boy.
