    Tonight's Mannix episode on MeTV ("To the Swiftest, Death"; season 2, episode 4, fall 1968) doesn't seem to have been mentioned in this thread before - with guest stars Sabrina Scharf and Emily Banks and Jill Ireland (plus Nicholas Colasanto and Hugh Beaumont, of all people).

    I recall The Invaders coming up earlier in this thread...MeTV's got it now, and will be airing it midnight EST Sat. night/Sunday morning, starting tonight.

    Thanks for the heads-up -- I've set my DVR. I saw a fair number of episodes some years ago when Syfy did a marathon, but only part of the first season. It was a fair-to-middling show, but I don't think I ever saw it in its entirety, so I'd like to get caught up. We can finally revive the "MeTV Super Sci-Fi Saturday" thread!

    Michael Ansara, without his toupee, on tonight's episode of 'The Streets of San Francisco', on 'Decades TV'.

    I am curious: Do we ever see Shatner without his toupee?

    I doubt that's ever happened. Even in "The Deadly Years," Shatner just had his toupee slicked back and frosted with gray. There are behind-the-scenes photos of the makeup process in The Making of Star Trek, and in none of them is Shatner showing any more scalp than usual. As far as I know, he's never allowed an image of himself without a toupee to be released to the public.

    The Question is: Would he have gotten the part without a toupee? Stewart got it! Though maybe it wasn't the right time for people with a receding hairline... those damn hairists!!! Aka follicular extremists. :D

    I remember an episode where he was among blind people and one of them was a (blind) retired cop who almost arrested him but he managed to escape in the end. Does it ring a bell?

    I haven't got to that one yet! I remember some b/w episodes from the nineties late night showings but my best recalled shows were the last thirty in colour that ended the show on a high and freedom and a new life for Richard Kimble!

    Yes, the one I am thinking of was a black and White one.

    Not quite the same thing, but I just found out that Pilar Seurat, who played the psychic in "Wolf in the Fold," is the mother of Dean Devlin, producer of Stargate, Independence Day, The Librarians, etc.

    It's a small world!

    Vic Perrin doesn't get a mug shot at the end, but he does have the honor of riding in the back of Officer Jim Reed's squad car before Reed is spun off into Adam-12.
