    WWWest did a TV movie called the $600 Dollar People. Loveless made robots, played by Shields and Yarnell.

    Another interesting coincidence has come up in my 50th anniversary viewing...Joseph Mell ("Earth Trader" from "The Cage") has turned up on this week's episodes of Adam-12 and Get Smart...which aired back-to-back on NBC.

    That was actually "The Wild Wild West Revisited" (1979).

    Was there two WWWest series? I remember one in black and white and another one in color. Or were they the same?

    Its first season was in black-and-white and the rest in color. American TV in general switched over to color around 1966 give or take a year, so a lot of shows from the mid-'60s started out in B&W and then switched to color -- Lost in Space, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, The Man from UNCLE, Gilligan's Island, Bewitched, The Andy Griffith Show, etc.

    The Fugitive had four seasons, three of which were in b/w and the last which was in glorious colour!

    My wife was binging the complete Twilight Zone in her craft room. Stuck my head in in time to see George Takei in The Encounter.

    1. Little person is the preferred term and...
    2. Why did you feel it necessary to point that out?

    1 Ok.
    2. Because it's something people tend to remember. Do you only say things that are "necessary"? Most people I know talk a lot about things that aren't necessary at all, like the weather for example. Necessity is not only the mother of invention it's also the one of infinite boredom.

    Still another bit of coincidental timing in shared casting between Mission: Impossible and Trek...Diana Ewing is in this week's 50th anniversary episode of M:I, "Live Bait," the same week that "The Cloud Minders" aired. Also guesting John (Commissioner Ferris) Crawford, Anthony Zerbe, and a very young Martin Sheen.

    Anthony Zerbe may have been in Trek but he wasn't in TOS I'm afraid! :techman:

    Never said he was, just noting who else was in the episode. And looking it up, Sheen was pushing 30, but he looked like he was barely out of his teens.

    Martin Sheen played a very young space soldier in The Outer Limits episode, Nightmare, with David Frankham as well in 1963! Great episode if not a bit scary!
