Martin Balsam and Martin E. Brooks are gone. That leaves Alan Oppenheimer as the last of the Rudy Wells. I'm surprised to see that Oppenheimer is only 85.

On a more positive note, I am thoroughly enjoying the "moustache season" of TSMDM. When I last saw it about fourteen years ago on the Sci-Fi Channel, I thought it was the worst of the series. In retrospect that old viewpoint had more to do with content edits and the endless commercial interruptions for which cable tv is famous. Thankfully I've been free of cable going on five years now. The dvds, however, have been just swell.

@ Phelps- Did you know Lee Majors was still acting in 1983? I didn't.

Lee Majors never "acted"; he was always "playing" Lee Majors. wink

I guess you never watched his 1981-1986 series, The Fall Guy?

Now that you mention it, I remember the name of the series but never saw it. I don't think I've seen him in anything after 6MDM. Last I remember, his attempted movie career crashed and burned with The Norseman.

It wasn't much of a show, despite the visual allure of Heather Thomas and to a lesser extent, Marke Post. There was a particularly untalented actor, whose name elludes me, who played a character named "Howie" and was alleged to have been there for comic relief. The theme song is "legendary" because it is sung by Lee Majors himself and I'll admit it has a certain charm but no one drunk or sober would ever confuse Majors' singing with that of, say, anyone talented in the singing department.

I'm sure it's on YouTube.

The (extended version) Fall Guy Theme ("The Unknown Stunt Man"). Consider yourself warned:

Yeah, it wasn't much of a show, and it was very formulaic. After watching an episode or two of the show, seek out Mad Magazine's parody of the show, which I think was called "The Brawl Guy". Anyway, it is a funny sendup of the show.

I had forgotten Marke Post was in the show. I always loved her in Night Court.
