Who remembers the awesome early ‘80s CBS show Windbreaker and Fern? It was about a guy who dressed like a Safeway night manager and this talking houseplant with ESP that was really a reincarnated Dutch wizard, and they’d go out and solve crimes in a very well-maintained Econoline? Why isn’t this on Netflix yet?
