Bill Daily (actor that played Major Roger Healey on “I Dream of Genie”) is gone in the blink of an eye. RIP Major Healey..

 

So Barbara Eden is the only one left.

Loved Bill Daily as Howard Borden on The Bob Newhart Show. Not the brightest bulb to ever navigate a commercial airliner.

 


Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

Something about the way they lighted that show. Lots of contrast. Very cool.

I wouldn't have noticed about the lighting so much back then. But it was and probably still is my favorite ever sitcom. The cast was just so perfect and the writing was great in an era of great sitcom writing. Somehow Bob, the straight man, surrounded by hilarious lunatics, was able to get huge laughs often just from his reactions alone. And then he'd go home and Howard would pop in and say even more crazy things. He made an art out of the reaction. Genius at it.

I forget about this show, but it was really excellent.  Among the best sitcoms ever.

Marty Balin has piloted his last flight with Jefferson Airplane.

But don't ask me what I think of you, I might not give the answer that you want me to."

He's also boldly gone for the last time with Jefferson Starship.

Not to mention he's beamed out of the Starship.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Shame.  65 is too young.

Cancer waits for no man (or woman, or gender fluid, or agender, etc).

Diana Sowle has kicked the bucket for the last time. She's better known as Helen Bucket, Charlie's mom in "Willie Wonka and The Chocolate Factory".
