I just found out (haven’t been attending to twitter very diligently) that Robert Culp died.
I’m not one to really care that much when celebrities die (although when Julie Andrews dies I will take to my bed) but I was actually a little sad by this one.
I have a thing for old TV shows. Right now I’ve got three seasons of Get Smart on my Netflix queue. And I loved I, Spy (thank you hulu).
But by far my favorite has to be The Greatest American Hero. Love, love, love this show. I don’t know why this memory is so vivid but I can remember watching reruns (obviously seeing as I was about 3 or 4 when the show ran the first time) in the basement of my Aunt Eva and Uncle Ed’s Great Falls house.
Robert Culp was fantastic as the FBI (CIA?, no I’m pretty sure it is FBI) agent Bill Maxwell. Fantastic.
Only three seasons which is a shame but luckily I can now watch them as many times as I want! Netflix has them on instant watch. Sadly some of the episodes are only on the disc which sucks- especially if a person had never seen the show and missed the fact that Ralph got the suit from aliens but lost the manual which is why he isn’t very good at the whole flying gig.
Anyways, RIP Agent Maxwell.
And in case the mere mention of The Greatest American Hero doesn’t get the song stuck in your head, here you go…
