    So the plan is to post this again 8 years from now, right?


    RIP Russ, an underrated actor who deserved some betterTwilight Zone roles.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    RIP

    I still find it strange to see him on Twilight Zone, but that show also had other similar actors more famous for other shows. Jack Klugman was on a few episodes ans William Shatner was on at least two. I'm probably forgetting others.

    Sorry to hear this news

    Off the top of my head, other "famous" Twilight Zone alumni:
    Lee Marvin
    Carol Burnett
    The guy that played Mr Drysdale on Beverly Hillbillies
    Elizabeth Montgomery of Bewitched
    The original Darren from Bewitched
    Billy Mumy (Little Will on Last on space)
    the guy that played Artemis Gordon on Wild Wild West

    I'm sure I'm forgetting others
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Arguably the biggest stars were Robert Redford and Mickey Rooney

    Re: RIP - The Professor

    OK. Some channel (I think it is TV Land) has starting showing Gilligan's Island again. So last night, with nothing better to do, I thought I'd watch an episode or two for old time's sake. Yes, I used to enjoy the program as a kid when I'd get home from school and watch it before dinner time (syndicated then... I am not that old lol). It was so bad and stupid that I had to turn the channel after 15 minutes of it. Just really BAD TV. The acting, the script, etc, etc.

    So... am I just too old now to "get it"? Was this program designed for kids that are younger than 12 yr old and/or people who were Timothy Leary followers back in the day? It made Erik Estrada look like an Oscar winning actor.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    Since he was last living male member on the island I think Ginger and Mary Ann just wore him out.
    I saw him appear on the Newhart show late in that shows run. He would show up on things like that every now and again.

    Mary Ann's the smartest too. She gets residuals for the reruns of Gilligans Island. No one else negotiated that back then.
