Highway Patrol

Anybody ever see Highway Patrol as a kid or even in reruns? I never did. It was really low budget, poorly written, and really over acted. I want to punch Broderick Crawford every time he opens his mouth—that horrible accent and tough guy attitude make me sick. At the end of every episode, he tells the viewer to tune in next week and to stay safe on the highway in some creative and corny manner, like the example below. The show was a Ziv Production, the same company that made Sea Hunt, which was also low budget, poorly written, and over acted by Lloyd Bridges (who also had an annoying tough guy mannerism of going "huh" at the end of every sentence). But yeah, I still can't help but watch these shows. They're perfect mindless entertainment for my lunch time.
