RIP Tony Dow

Tony had a pretty good run/life and managed to avoid the post-child-actor tragedy we all hear about. Sure he was often remembered as Wally, the older brother from Leave it to Beaver, a SitCom I never hated yet I could never … Continue reading

RIP David Warner

Such a shame to see David go! Another great Shakespeare-trained actor who went on to have an incredible Sci-Fi resume: two Star Trek movies (V and VI – Klingon Chancellor Gorkon is the most memorable), Star Trek: the Next Generation (Gul Madrid), Babylon … Continue reading

Babylon 5 returning but “rebooted”

RIP Stephen Furst (belated)

To most people Stephen lives on as Flounder from Animal House but to the Nerd crowd it’s Vir Cotto in Babylon 5. I was more annoyed by the Internet not having many photos of him in the one treasure I later remembered … Continue reading

RIP Jerry Doyle

It’s sad how all the Babylon 5 actors are dying off so quickly. By my count, about half of the principle cast is gone which rules out any real reunion. For a long time Jerry played a favorite, the cynical yet … Continue reading
