Did you dig the Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer that was shown at Comic Con?
Yeah, me too!
It’s not that unusual to learn that co-stars of movies and tv sometimes don’t get along. It is surprising though when the co-stars seem to like each other and have on-screen chemistry.
TopTenz posted 10 Sets of Co-Stars You Didn’t Realize Hated Each Other.
The list has a few surprises [Richard Dreyfuess & Robert Shaw, Steve McQueen & Yul Brenner] and several that everyone probably knows about [Bea Arthur & Betty White, David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson, Dustin Hoffman & Meryl Streep, William Shatner & George Takei, Bill Murray & Lucy Liu].
I was surprised that Bruce Willis & Cybill Sheppard and Vivian Vance & William Frawley didn’t make the list!
James Garner, star of movies and tv, was found dead in his Los Angeles home yesterday. Mr. Garner was 86.
If you are a child of the 50′s then James Garner is probably best known to you for the role of Brett Maverick [the role that launched him to stardom] in the series Maverick. Garner played a new kind of hero, one that preferred to use his wits rather than his guns or fists to get him out of trouble.
If you grew up in the 60′s then you probably know James Garner the movie star. Movies like The Great Escape, The Americanization of Emily, Duel at Diablo, Support Your Local Sheriff, and Marlowe all come to mind.
The 70′s saw a combination of movies and tv. The early 70′s included the movies Support Your Local Gunfighter, and Skin Game as well as the short-lived tv series Nichols. Then in 1974, James Garner’s other cornerstone character, Jim Rockford began appearing when the Rockford Files premiered (which ran until 1980).
James Garner went on to star in many more movies [Victor/Victoria, Murphy's Romance, Space Cowboys, and The Notebook are just a few], but time and time again he would return to Brett Maverick [tv series and movies] and Jim Rockford [tv movies].
My favorite James Garner roles include the two Support Your Local… movies, Marlowe [Bruce Lee appears and Garner plays Phillip Marlowe!], Nichols [watched and enjoyed the series as a kid and would love to see how it holds up] and of course Jim Rockford.
Many actors are called legendary. James Garner embodied what it takes to get that designation. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and fans.
Did you ever see the Star Trek animated public service announcement about pollution?
If not (or if you’d like to see it again), you can thanks to Retroist.
When I saw this poster for Salem’s Lot it brought back a lot of memories. Released as a 3 hour television mini-series in 1979, Salem’s Lot was one of the last tv events that you had to be in front of the set when it aired if you wanted to see it. Remember, this was in the pre-VCR (anyone remember those) days.
I was excited about the mini-series since I’d read and enjoyed Stephen King’s novel Salem’s Lot. The mini-series was well done and lived up to expectations. I still can see that kid vampire floating outside a second story window asking to be let in… CREEPY!

The Zombie Apocalypse is coming.
What will it reveal about your true character? Will you become a leader, a follower, someone who takes advantage of the weak, or a zombie’s lunch?
As the sign says if you take the quiz Which Walking Dead Survivor Are You? there could be spoilers…
For the record… I got Rick.

Quick – What’s the best horror series ever put on television?
My guess is that many of you immediately thought of The Twilight Zone [not only horror, but did have some scary episodes], The Outer Limits [Twilight Zoneish], The Invaders, The Night Gallery… and so on.
But… how many of you immediately thought of Thriller?
Stephen King did. In fact King described Thriller as…
“…probably the best horror series ever put on TV.”
Classic Film and TV provides a nice overview of Thriller with links to additional information. If you’ve read this far, you’d probably enjoy clicking over.
Trevor Grove is an artist.
Trevor and his brother, Troy, have been working on a series of sculptures of characters from Breaking Bad. I went to Trevor’s DA site to check out them out and got sucked in by all of Trevor’s other great sculpts and drawings. So plan on staying a bit when you click over.
