Totally hot...but that pic is from 1987 when she was 53. She's 78 now. Link

2 Python sucks. Stop pretending to be hip from referencing the only old show you know.



If you think Python sucks, you're obviously oblivious to good TV.

He was 81 and on, like, liver #2 or 3.

Many perfectly healthy people with all their original parts don't make it to 81-years-old.

I also love that Dallas basically invented the concept of Retroactive Continuity when they cancelled out an entire season as being a dream.

Bingo! I wonder how many times you get to the top of a Donor List because of TV Celebrity status. I'm guessing at least twice for this bottle of booze to last to 81.


Jim Nabors managed that as well.

It's no wonder his liver was gone. Every time somebody came into his Dallas office he'd pour drinks.

That dude was a hard partying sonofabiatch! He was wasted drunk on I Dream of Jeannie almost every day, but managed to do his work. There are tales of him showing up to the set on off days and pissing all over all the furniture. Just a real Hollywood partier, God bless him!

R.I. P Major Nelson

whatshisname: spman: Dallas is without a doubt one of the best shows in the history of all television

Not really.

It was a mildly interesting soap opera that was aired in prime time.



This just in.

Different people like different things.
And....you're wrong. Mainly because I can tell you weren't even alive during Dallas from the shows you listed.
 
2012-11-24 01:22:59 AM  
Many a Friday nights in my childhood where my parents rushed us up the stairs after the Dukes of Hazzard because Dallas wasn't a 'kids show'. I know the theme by heart though! It wasn't until years later that I put two and two together and realized J.R. Ewing was Major Nelson.

81 is a helluva a run for what he went through. See you on the other side, Mr. Hagman.

Or, maybe, just possibly, different people find different things funny. Doesn't make it not funny, just makes it not funny to you. I'm quite confident that several of the things you find funny would leave quite a few others scratching their heads and going "huh?".

Every once in a while, a celebrity is a real person and for me this is one of those times.

I have met Larry and his wife Maj, at their home in Ojai, and they are warm, charming, gracious, generous, kind, thoughtful, hospitable folks. And they love dogs. Good people all around.

RIP Larry Hagman and condolences to all his loved ones. Really a memorable, remarkable man and on the whole a life well lived. Blessings and peace on his soul.

What was funny, was it also screwed up Falcon Crest...which was a spin-off at the time and had fall out from Bobby's death in that series as well.

Falcon Crest had Lorenzo Lamas.

It'll be interesting to see if the producers of the new Dallas series had enough foresight to consider this grim possibility and got Larry to film some alternate scenes to write out the character just in case he were to die. It's not like his cancer was a secret, sp it would make sense that you'd plam for that contingency.
 
2012-11-24 02:57:59 AM  
I agree with spman.
In fact, if I had been Mr. Hagman I would have told the producers far in advance that they could shoot a scene of me on my actual deathbed IF they would underwrite the cost of my funeral.

In other business, what the hell took the Associated Press so long to acknowledge the actor's passing? Was it due to a holiday work crew that couldn't get its sources together? Was it a big secret that he had gone back to the hospital/hospice??

J.R. dead today...eaten by wolves.

at least they can't shoot him again.
 
2012-11-24 03:53:58 AM  
Was at his house in Malibu twice, late 70s. The first time, Peter Fonda answered the door wearing a conehead. The second, Larry himself greeted me. A truly nice person, very down to earth. His wife designed grottos, so they had an extra biatchen one in the front yard.
RIP

Ooo, I actually have a CSB that I rarely get to tell.

My dad was a contractor, and he did a job for Burgess Meredith. One day, Burgess was telling my dad something he wanted done and said, "I'd like it the way Hagman next door has it. Here, I'll show you." He led my dad through a little gate that went between the two properties and into Larry Hagman's back yard. Larry was in the hot tub with two women, one of whom was his wife. All three were naked. Burgess introduced my dad, and Larry got up to shake his hand. My dad was only 5'9", and Larry was like 6'5" or something. Oh, but then he put on a big purple robe with a fur collar, like kings wear in cartoons.

I worked on that job that summer, and the only person I ever heard cuss more than Larry Hagman was his wife. She practically made the paint peel off the walls. Their arguments were something to behold.

I'm trying to figure out if it makes the story cooler to picture Burgess Meredeth in Mickey regalia, or fully decked out as the Penguin.

I remember watching Dallas as a kid, saw almost the whole series. And then there was watching I Dream of Jeannie reruns. Some years back TNN would show Dallas reruns and it surprised me how well the show held up.
