May not be TV, but early '80s is definitely retro. Much as we may hate to admit it, the early '80s is a lot closer to TOS than it is to now.
Heck, the whole of the 1980's (and soon the 1990's) is now the distant past (classic rock stations play 1980's music a lot!) There should be diners/restaurants with 1980's themes/decor, stores selling 1980's clothing, toys, stereos, cameras, etc. as antiques (I have a 1980's Minolta Maxxum 5000 AF SLR that I use sometimes which I purchased in 2011) all over the place, kind of like what this movie showed:



There should also be more 80's movies on TCM as well; in fact, most of the programming on the channel should be 1980's movies.

Bite your tongue! TCM is the last bastion for those of us who still want to watch vintage movies from the 30s, 40s, 50s, etc. Let AMC handle all the "modern" stuff so we still have a place to watch Tyrone Power and Carole Lombard and so on . . . .

Seriously, I live in fear of the day that some bean-counter at TCM decides that black-and-white movies are bad for ratings and starts replacing them with reality shows or "Lethal Weapon" marathons.

Speaking of TCM, Ian Wolfe showed up in Irwin Allen's 1960 version of The Lost World, which I recorded off TCM last night and just watched.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Hope I'm not duplicating information here but talk about coincidence. I just watched Dagger of the Mind last night and it kind of hit me that Helen Noel IS Marianna Hill... who I know as the star of a couple of the odder movies you're likely to come across... Messiah of Evil (1973) and The Baby (also 1973)... and was in Medium Cool with Robert Forster in 1969.

From Messiah of Evil:


From The Baby:

They won't be doing that (and I wasn't advocating that)-I was advocating playing more 1980s movies because the 1980s (and 1970s) is now the past. They can play all of the B&W movies that they want to, but they need to add some variety (or they'll go out of business), and the 1980s has that in spades.

Didn't AMC stop playing old movies because TCM was eating into it doing the same thing?

That's probably where my brain cross-circuited from, yeah. Oh well.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

In yet another of those wild little cosmic coincidences I love, the Mannix I watched just now ("A Gathering of Ghosts") also featured Marj Dusay!



...and in yet another twofer, we also got Diana Muldaur in the same ep:


Is it just me, or does Mike Connors look like William Campbell in that first pic?

^ Nah, I'm getting a kind of Dean Martin or Chris Noth-ish vibe from that one.
