More Mighty Max - another Max Gail Appreciation Society thread

Help him take a load off, won't you?

by Anonymousreply 97Last Friday at 5:45 PM

At the risk of creating a mortal enemy, I want to ask some questions of you, OP; so that I might better understand these numerous, apparently unending threads/postings. Is that okay?

So, assuming it is alright; let's get started.

1. Are you Max Gail?

2. Are you Max Gail's publicist (He's still not going to pay you; you were let go after 'Barney Miller'. Go home, already.)

3. Are you Max Gail's mother? (I understand the love for your son; but holy fucking shit, lady! You've been dead for years. Let it go already.)

4. Are you a Max Gail stalker (Please make sure you stay hydrated; stalking can take a hidden toll on you. Diet and age-appropriate exercise will help you in your quest to stalk MG deep into your old age. Take care of yourself today, so that you can stalk well tomorrow.)

5. Are you OCD about U.S. 70's TV actors, in general, not for Max Gail, per se. (If so, please direct me to your other 70's-U.S.-TV-actors' appreciation threads for verification.)

6. Are you: (a) stoned (b) drunk (c) under the influence of Max Gail's masculine, musky scent. (If it is 6(c) [because he's so sex-y], please disregard this post.)

Thank you.

[r2] Please reread my post at [r1].

I clearly stated that if answer '6c' [because he's so sex-y] is correct, then disregard my post at r1! I was polite. I said 'please' and 'thank you.' And now you've gone and opened up this big can of worms with your entirely unnecessary response! See what you've done? I have to get the whole committee in my head back together again to discuss this unsettling development. And now I just noticed there's an [r3] talking about this. I'll never be able to control this spreading inferno of Maximum Gail Force attraction. Thanks a lot!

R1 Max doesn’t have a publicist, unless I count. I just run his Facebook page though. LOL

R6 I’ve actually had Max in front of me with his hands on and around my shoulders. It was 100% platonic, but still nice. LOL He has a lovely woman in his life that takes such good care of him and I’m happily married. He’s a good man. Kind, funny, warm, humble and very gentle. He has a deep compassion for others and a love of the world around him.

Sue, there have been discussions here about CHIPS, and Larry Wilcox of course has come up. I'm a fan, and when I mentioned it, was told he had a bad complexion. Not that I really care, but can you confirm? Oh and just how many 70s cop-actors have you known/represented - just idle curiosity.

I'm happy to hear that Barney Miller is going to air on Antena TV. I haven't been able to watch the show in years!

"Hash" has to be my favorite episode, but I also loved the ones that had serious subtexts. There was one in particular I remember being one of my favorites as a kid, (don't remember the title), that involved a gypsy and a nazi. Heavy subject matter for a comedy.

by Anonymousreply 3103/26/2021

R31 I think the episode you're talking about is called "The Librarian". I made a small video of the ending here.

Definitely in my top 5 favorites from the show. The fact that Barney Miller as a comedy dared to tackle serious issues amid the laughs is one of the reasons that made it such a great show. It must be a delicate balance and they excelled at it. Max's Wojo and his heart of gold also gave us a phenomenal performance in this episode.

by Anonymousreply 3203/26/2021

R32 - Thank you Justin! Yes, that's the episode! Based on the way Max looks, it has to be from one of the last 2 seasons. It's been so long since I've watched it! And yes, Max is great in it - not to mention beautiful. You can tell that he believes what he's saying.

As far as serious episodes, this and the one where Kotterman (sp?) gets murdered are my favorites. But for laughing out loud I love "Hash" and the one with the Werewolf.

by Anonymousreply 3303/27/2021

You're welcome R33. Yes, that's from season 7. You can tell by Max's hair. I could never understand that hairpiece. Since when was Wojo a red-head? Or maybe I need my eyes checked, lol

My favorite piece of Barney Miller memorabilia is actually from the "Werewolf" episode. I have a Final Draft original script that is autographed by the entire cast, including Jack Soo. It was actioned off by ABC for charity. It even has the final handwritten corrections to the dialog inside, so that's really cool. When I saw it for sale I couldn't pounce on it fast enough! lol

Is it true that when some of you on this thread say 'OMG!', you mean 'Oh! Max Gail! ? If so, I fully support your efforts to secularize DL from the mention of a 'god'; however, this runs the risk of idolatry, as well. You might want to consider the considerable power of MG's masculinity and musky scent. I forsee masses of Catholics and Buddhists converting to the new theology of Maxculinity. I'm warning you all right now, the nonstop chanting of 'OMG! OMG!' will end up driving us all crazy! Get ready for the new normal.

I saw him on a couple of nights ago on FETV in the episode where he goes on mugging detail wearing a dress. Good gaaawd did he have sexy legs!! It was supposed to be really hot, and his hairy chest was glistening in sweat.. Mmm Mmmm MMM!!!

When he came back with his dress all torn up after a guy tried to "rape him" I laughed my ass off, but I drooled all over at the sight of those bare shoulders and biceps...

Does anyone remember the Barney Miller two-part 'Quarantine' episodes? The cops and various others have to bunk in the station. The gay burglers are back. One of them tries to cozy up to Captain Miller.* Wojo has a heart-to-heart with the other one, asking if he's ever been with a woman, and is surprised when he answers yes and has a son! Wojo is plussed but is cool about it. The big lug is trying to figure out the gay thing.

*I had a big crush on Hal Linden as a gayling. The tallness, the Jewishness, the rolled-up sleeves, the mustache. He was so fucking hot! My teen self always had a bone for the Captain. He was another alpha yet gentle man. Glad he's still around, still working.

by Anonymousreply 4603/29/2021

^Hal Linden was gorgeous too, with the bedroom eyes, thick, wavy hair and moustache.

"Quarantine" was a good episode. I loved the part where they're all asleep on cots and Harris starts talking in his sleep, spilling his true feelings about his co-workers. They all wake up and look at him incredulously, not believing that's how he really feels about them. Max is laying in a prone position on his cot, arms folded under his head, taut, muscle butt looking extra good in his tight trousers. I wonder if that's how Max really sleeps (TMI?)

by Anonymousreply 4703/29/2021

"Quarantine" was really funny, but any episode with Wojo sweating is going to be a favorite. And that muscle butt sticking out while laying face down is not going to go unnoticed...

Hal Linden was very attractive. He had more of a classic old Hollywood leading man style looks, a little bit like Clark Gable is my opinion. I like him, but there's something about Wojo's looks that just hits me like a ton of bricks in a very primal way.

I envy you in a way R50. As a woman, you might've had the real chance of sleeping with him. Not me.

I follow him on Facebook too and seen a handful of women telling him flat out that they were/had been in love with him. He didn't react badly. I can't imagine that he doesn't enjoy the flattery, specially coming from the younger females, and some of them look more than young enough to be his daughters. He is, after all, still a red blooded man.

As far as Estrada, he always struck me as handful of a guy, full of himself. The story that was told here about him wanting the crotch of his speedos enhanced for the Battle of the Network All Stars kinda proves it. Wilcox seems like the kind of guy you could just hang out with.

I recommend 100% R71. That clip I posted at R32 is from my DVD set, and I didn't transfer it at full quality. The film doesn't seem to have been remastered, and that may be what people are complaining about because the show is not in HD. But to watch the show (or just to look at Max 😉), I agree it's totally worth every penny. Plus you get some cool extras.

[quote] [R37], Max played Rugby so yeah he had really strong legs!

I've had some many erotic fantasies about him over the years when that scene comes up. That hard muscle, perfectly shaped bubble butt on a platter like that is just too tempting.

by Anonymousreply 91Last Thursday at 2:02 PM

^Indeed. Tonight was a double wammy of Wojo beefy hotness — “Werewolf” and “Bus Stop.” Both are great episodes. In “Bus Stop,” he’s taking an old lady’s statement and she recalls to him her last husband, who liked his coffee “strong and hot,” and who had “muscles out to here and thighs like concrete.” She could have been describing him! And toward the end of the episode, she keeps referring to him as “The big one.” Max really was buffed out in season 3. His ass in those tight pants in both episodes was a sight.

by Anonymousreply 92Last Thursday at 5:35 PM

LOL R92, I remember that "Bus Stop" episode with the old woman. She had the hots for him and I think she WAS indeed indirectly describing him. I remember thinking: lady, at your age, a romp with Wojo just might the deadly! But who could blame her...

In "Quarantine", him laying face down on the cot is a sight to behold. Imagine coming home to find him on you bed like that. Instant wood!! There was also a photo someone posted in one of the other threads where he's bent over, ass to the camera in those tight pants looking at a painting. Holy mother of gawd!!!
