Yeah, when I refer to BSG, I am only referring to the current version. (I suppose I should have made that more clear.) The old one never happened, as far as I'm concerned.
I was a fan of the old show.
I watched a large part of it on ABC (I'd pretty much given up by the time Ray Bolger showed up in metallic drag). I was a potential fan for about the first forty-five minutes of the pilot, then I realized how really really really bad the show was conceptually and in terms of the actual writing. By the time they did "Gun On Ice Planet Zero" a few weeks later the awfulness of the thing was confirmed for all time.
That wasn't Ray Bolger, it was Fred Astaire. Kids! Cripes!

James Arness didn't need the work that badly.
What, Lorne had that sweet Alpo deal going at the time....
That was Ed McMahon.

Fred Astaire played Starbuck's dad. IIRC, Ray Bolger played one of the annoying androids in the Terra episode.

*Ahem*: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B43Lnqs-eUg (One of what I recall as a long-running series. Other people around here remember them, too, as I used an Alpo reference as a joke in a caption thread once and it got laughs.)

I know Fred Astaire played Starbuck's dad. He also played Alexander Mundy's(Robert Wagner's) dad in It Takes A Thief. I never saw Ray Bolger on the original BSG so I don't remember him. I remember him mostly as the Scarecrow on the Wizard of Oz.

Also, that's the first time I saw that Alpo commercial with Lorne Greene. Maybe it only played in Canada. I remember Ed McMahon doing an Alpo commercial live every night on The Tonight Show back in the Johnny Carson days. Now he can't make his mortgage payments. Shame.

^Nope, the Alpo commercials played in the States, during evening programming as I recall.
