Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: No Mr. Hooper?


Do the needful: How could they leave out Mr. Hooper?


Ashyukun: Came to gripe about the lack of Sesame Street, glad to see it was covered already. Still probably the best way I'd seen the death of a cast member handled, if not one of the most waterworks-inducing...

Jim from Saint Paul: ten foiled hats: Jim from Saint Paul: Wait so people don't like Woody from Cheers?

JESUS CHRIST. Like something internet. ANYTHING. GOOOOOLLLLLLLLLYYYY.

Uh...no, I don't think anybody's really saying that.  Some of us like Woody, but still miss Coach.  (From Cheers, not Craig T. Nelson...although maybe that, too.  Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Heckle.)

/still miss Phil & Redd, too
//that wasn't crying for Mr. Hooper, that was, uh, my allergies
///(no know allergies, esp. not to slashies)

The article shiats all over Woody.


Where at?

The only mention of Woody is The guilt: his replacement, Woody Boyd, introduced the world to Woody Harrelson. The world is worse off for losing Colasanto; the world is better off with Woody Harrelson in it

Bummer.


I see him every year in my annual viewing of the best Christmas movie ever (and his last movie): Bad Santa

I also came here to say this. I had 'List Fails without Mr. Hooper' already fired up even as I was reading the article, waiting to be deprived of my fark-worthy post, and getting to the number one spot to see...

HOLY CRAP they actually DID fail to list Mr. Hooper.

I'm... speechless...

Although I never really watched Brooke Sheilds' "Suddenly Susan", I ended up watching the episode dealing with the death of actor David Strickland.  The idea that his character had gone missing, and while looking for him, it was discovered that he had this outside life of doing small good deeds around the neighborhood that his co-workers never saw was a nice tribute to what kind of lives any TV character might live out of sight of the camera, or the writers.  And what any of us viewers possibly miss out on, and what gets lost when Actors pass away.

scottydoesntknow: Andy Whitfield, Spartacus

I was watching the 1st season of Spartacus yesterday while cleaning the house (specifically the Pit and the season finale). Whitfield was soooo good. Mcintyre did a fantastic job too and I felt kinda bad that some people didn't give him a chance simply because he wasn't Whitfield.

/Spartacus Season 1 finalie is one of the best of all time
//OF ALL TIME!
///KILL THEM ALL!


I watched this on Netflix.  The first 5 episodes weren't that great or didn't find their rhythm, but literally every successive episode was better than the last all the way up to the finale.  I can't really remember a show that got progressively better that way up to a fully satisfying finale.

"They replaced me with the guy from The Gilmore Girls? Really?"

No, he was replaced by Dennis Farina, best known fior Crime Story.

And Lennie's death was only mentioned a couple of times... once by Mike Logan in L&O: Criminal Intent, and once by the Lieutenant in the final season... both long after Jerry Orbach died.

No, after Jerry Orbach left L&O Classic, the Lennie Briscoe character became a regular on L&O: Trial By Jury, but Orbach died of cancer after filming only 2 episodes; he was replaced by Scott Cohen.


You are correct, sir. I was referring to Classic only, not really thinking Trial By Jury counted.


Ramien: FirstNationalBastard: WippitGuud: [images.tvrage.com image 315x248]

The Night Court episode that dealt with Selma's death is on my Top-5 episode list.

And when her replacement, Florence, died a year later, it was only acknowledged with one line from Harry.

/supposedly, that's why they cast a young Marsha Warfield... they were tired of strange voiced, chain smoking older women dying on them.

Be fair, though - they gave Flo her send-off while she was still alive, but weren't sure if she would survive through the season.

And Marsha Warfield had her own diabetes scare - that also got its own episode in the show. Female bailiffs were cursed on that show, I swear.


Yeah, they did give Flo the retirement episode, only to have her still employed at the end of the episode and appearing in the season finale two-parter right after her big episode... and it was a damn good episode, too. They gave her a script to make her shine.

I just thought it was odd she only got a one line mention in the first episode after her death.

/And I still prefer to believe the reason Bull went from intelligent but flaky to childlike and naive was because he couldn't handle Selma and Flo leaving him within such a short time.

FTFA: The guilt: his replacement, Woody Boyd, introduced the world to Woody Harrelson. The world is worse off for losing Colasanto; the world is better off with Woody Harrelson in it.

By saying that they feel guilty for liking him despite also liking the actor he replaced?

Guadior42: Sorry, but he just leaves me cold. My memories of really loving his stuff, back in the day just don't hold up to my present re-listening to the old stuff, and hearing the newer stuff.


Sorry to hear that. I had the exact opposite experience recently. Went through old CDs I had at my parent's house and found "Running With Scissors" and "Bad Hair Day". Popped them in and it was like listening to them all over again.

I was amazed I could still remember all the lyrics to "The Saga Begins" (the only good thing to come out of the prequels).
