Day #01. How did you discover The Professionals?

I first saw The Professionals when it aired originally in the UK. I used to watch it with my parents and grandma each week - it was 'not to be missed family viewing'. Even though I had no idea what slash was (or that it existed) and was very naive really, I did 'slash' Bodie & Doyle pretty much instantly. I saw them as being 'together' with the girl of the week as just being the 'girl of the week'. Of course then it was nothing more than hand-holding or kissing *wry grin*

Then many years later when I was looking for a second fandom/pairing (I had by that time discovered I was not odd in my 'slashing notions' and discovered many like-minded folk) to compare/contrast with Starsky & Hutch for my Master's degree dissertation on Media Fandom I decided on The Professionals as I knew the show, it was a very similar era, they were both buddy copy shows and one was American and one was British. The interest was only going to be academic *g*

Thus for me they were discovered in December 1977 and re-discovered in January 2001!
