Believe it or not, it's just me.

Today's earworm is the theme song from The Greatest American Hero, which is kind of odd, as I'm quite sure I've never even seen an episode of that program (which program, I hasten to point out, predates me by a full year—not that I couldn't have caught a rerun, mind).

You know the one: "Believe it or not, I'm walking on air."

Man. Get out of my head, song.

Is that a Seinfeld reference? I feel like I miss a lot of Seinfeld references.

Now I feel old. I loved that show when I was ten or so, and developed an age-inappropriate crush on Robert Culp as the FBI agent.

My dad liked it too, in retrospect probably largely because of Connie Selleca.

So, wait, LB. Is this a show I should track down? I had the vague impression it was kind of schlocky, but I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise.

Oh, it's incredibly schlocky, I just loved it truly.

It's hard to guess if it's the sort of cheesetastic mess that would be entertaining if you encountered it for the first time as an adult, or whether it'd just seem stupid, but it might be worth Netflixing. And the fact that my dad was enjoying it back in the early eighties suggests that there was some adult entertainment value there; Connie Selleca's pretty, but not that pretty.

Okay. Added to the instant queue.

Yes, Stan, that was a Seinfeld reference. You do miss a lot of Seinfeld references.

George Costanza does a parody of the theme song to The Greatest American Hero on his answering machine. It's a Classic Moment
