It's weird, seeing as how I watched both shows in my youth, but never connected his face.

Now, more Adam-12 familiarities...






Not to mention, of all shows, Green Acres!

1. Liam Sullivan

2 ??

3 ???

4. Technically, Bill Boyett was in TNG

5 - ok - got me there - he was a real scuzz in that episode

Stanley Adams was in an A12...also a Dragnet


And speaking of Hogans and A12, there is an A12 where Larry 'Sergeant Carter' Hovis plays a press agent of a starlet, who has her posing nude on a beach - HOPING the cops get called. A12 was a pretty good show, but the first couple of seasons when Webb and partner/show creator RA Cinader were in charge, are almost unbelievably stiff. Plus Universal cheaped it out, and outside of stock road shots, it was filmed almost entirely on the already overused Universal backlot - every other call is either to the Leave it to Beaver house, or the Munsters house! Once Webb and Cinader took off their paws, it got a chance to loosen up a little, and Universal opened up the purse strings to let them film on location more and more. It got REAL good when they first got Stephan J Cannell to write a show, then made him story editor. (It was SJC's first TV job!) He was the one to inject some real odd situations that cops actually face - his first show ever had them stopping a guy who had a street legal tank!

^It was a second-season episode, "The Deadly Goddess Affair."

In fact, the three episodes on the DVD I just finished include two Organians, both playing scientists working for THRUSH: Peter Brocco in "The Dippy Blonde Affair" and John Abbott in "The Birds and the Bees Affair." Unfortunately, David Hillary Hughes (Trefayne) won't be joining them, since he only has two non-Trek credits on his filmography.

Christopher, do you recommend buying the U.N.C.L.E. complete series set? I started watching it during its first season (my favorite due to theme arrangement), was buying the Aurora and AMT model kits, getting the monthly short story magazine, etc. I know the third season was crap, and they almost pulled it out of the fire in the fourth, but it was too late.

All I have now are a few episodes on VHS, including The Project Strigas Affair.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

OK - so we have had pics of William Boyett and Ken Lynch, how about one of the OTHER guy from the 60's/70's who was always a cop/military officer in shows - Ed Peck. Peck was best known as the local cop in Happy Days, whose character was known as....Officer Kirk! Someone at HD was most likely a Trek fan, and thought it might make a nice inside joke... it WAS done at Paramount, after all.

One funny thing is that Peck never appeared on Dragnet or A12 at all - especially not as a cop!

True, EnsignHarper. Even his Star Trek appearance was as a military officer. I guess he just has the "Look of Authority"!

Philip Pine and Philip Pine in The Outer Limits: The 100 Days of the Dragon, a Manchurian Candidate-influenced episode with impostors from a foreign nation placed into the highest levels of American government.

I wouldn't know, since I'm not finished with the second season yet. Although I'm not enjoying it much overall, and I'm not even sure I want to continue to season 3.

But yes, the first season definitely had the best theme arrangement, and was a lot better in most other respects than season 2 has been.

I remember, Melakon, not expecting to like that episode for some reason. But it turned out to be pretty good!

I was a bit bugged, though, ironically by the episode from which your avatar derives its existence. It's enjoyable...but I was distracted by the casting of Skip Homeier and Keith Andes as brothers' in law. They are just too suited to play full brothers!

Actually, in TIY, he managed to be both cop and soldier, being an Air Police Colonel!

Stay away from "The Five Daughters Affair". It's a 2-parter from season 3. Although it does have Kim Darby, Jill Ireland, Telly Savalas, Terry-Thomas, Diane McBain, Herbert Lom, Curt Jurgens, and Joan Crawford (in a cameo). Trek stuntmen Dick Crockett and Paul Baxley also appear as part of a team of recurring bad guys.

When my computer was down last month, I watched it more times than I want to remember.

If you skip the Five Daughter affair, you can see the highlights in my screen grabs of Jill Ireland upthread .

Barry Russo. I remember seeing that Five-0 episode. Guess being a criminal paid better than Starfleet. He was on The F.B.I. too.
