1987: MAD MAGAZINE SPOOFS THE EQUALIZER


I've long-maintained that THE EQUALIZER was the best of the action/ adventure/ crime shows to emerge from the Universal Television Factory of the seventies and eighties so I don't need much of an excuse to rerun this spoof from MAD MAGAZINE (UK edition 302, June 1987).

The show was a mainstay of ITV's eighties schedules, although it did fall foul of the network's usual shenanigans of airing episodes in a random order, running different episodes in different regions (or not-at-all, depending on the whims of local schedulers) and generally treating American shows with disdain.
