On Wishing for a Wormhole Friday, we’re taking a trip back to 1962, well, at least Granite Flats will take you there, if you climb on board for the ride. It airs on BYUTv, but you can watch it online if you click here.
What snagged my attention wasn’t just the time frame (though I was an, er, kid back then. ahem, cough), but the Roswellian hint of a possible alien crash, a military conspiracy, or least mysteries to be solved. I had to set my DVR so I wouldn’t miss it.
Now that I’ve seen it, it kind of reminds me of:
- How TV used to be, back when I was a kid (though in color).
- The Wonderful World of Disney shows, the ones with kids solving mysteries. I used to love those the best. And I totally had a crush on the Scarecrow. [Insert freaky cackle of laughter here] It’s possible Walt Disney is responsible for my love of action, romance and suspense. Every Sunday evening, we’d line up in front of the big box, B&W TV to watch. I’m not sure when the graphics turned to color, because I was there for the stories.
I’m always there for the stories. So far, Granite Flats has got me hooked. And if you’ve got kids, this is totally safe TV. Family friendly to its toenails. If a TV show can have toenails. And it gives one a wormhole view into a past that was flawed, but still interesting. And I want to know what’s going on! 🙂
Did you see Granite Falls? Do you remember watching The Wonderful World of Disney? Did you long to be in his band, or did you crush on Dr. Syn/The Scarecrow? When you close your eyes and remember a childhood show that you loved, what do you see/remember?

Pauline still loves the science fiction, even she swerved back into romantic suspense for her latest release, Relatively Risky. It’s digital only at the moment, but should release in print in May. If you like romantic suspense, New Orleans, a little humor and a lot of fun, I hope you’ll check it out at paulinebjones.com or from these bookstores:
