Is it a good series?
I've been looking for obscure 70s series.
I'm in the middle of SWAT.
I honestly couldn't say. I watched it every week when it originally ran but I was about 10 years old and don't really remember much. I was probably easily amused back then. At least I never forgot about it.
The Fantastic Journey, a 1977 mid-season replacement science-fiction series on NBC. It was only intended for 13 episodes, but got cancelled after nine (a tenth episode was run a couple of months after the cancellation). Starred Jared Martin, who went on to bigger things with a recurring role in Dallas, but is mostly memorable for the presence of Roddy McDowell, who played something of a more likeable 'Dr. Smith' type of character on the show.
I love the Paul Lynde Show, the most comic aspect of it passing off Paul as het breadwinner dad! It's been airing in our area recently--I hadn't seen it in years, and it's actually surprising to note how racy some of the humor is.
Another long-forgotten series was Rafferty a 1977 medico drama starring post-Prisoner Patrick McGoohan. McGoohan reportedly despised working on the show and it only lasted for one season. However, the show is considered by some to be a precursor to House, M.D. due to the irascible nature of the protagonist doctor (and supposedly Hugh Laurie has said his portrayal of House was partly influenced by McGoohan's on this show).
