I don't remember much more about it. As far as I know it has never been released on VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray or any streaming service.
I remember the loss-of-virginity episode where James's eccentric roue uncle sets him up with a (of course) hot Swedish blonde.
Still remember the chucklehead theme song - a bunch of ham-fisted mullet-heads going "Whoh, whoh, whoh, whoh, whoh, whoh, James".
(And then the beginning of an SNL show with Don Pardoe announcing "'James at 75' cannot be seen at this time so we can bring you the following broadcast.")

A couple PBS shows from the late 70's - "Inside Tennis" and "We Interrupt This Week". I am the last remaining person on earth who still remembers those.

Micheal Moore's "TV Nation".

I liked this show, great cast too.
featuring another flattenable theme song:
