Department S Fan Tributes
1 Joe Posner from San Jacinto, CA: I discovered "Department S" in the mid '80s, during a difficult time in my life.
I was working out of a day labor hall in downtown Los Angeles, struggling to survive, while pursuing writing on the side.
One night, after a hard day at a bottled water company, I turned on the television, cold beer in hand, and stumbled onto "Department S." I liked it immediately!
Peter Wyngarde' s flamboyant Jason King, bestselling novelist/detective, became a perfect alter ego for a struggling writer going
through tough times.
My life eventually got better, and I
escaped to a full-time writing job and a flat in the suburbs.
I will always be thankful to "Department S" and the entertainment, and escapism, it gave me in hard times.
