More Perception, Less Office, Barrowman To Arrow, Osborne out, “Have Gun…” & “Blake’s 7” reboot, RIP Scott, Diller, Horshack, Windham, Stuart

I don’t think I’m going to be able to complete my Fall TV schedule so I found another one online that I posted to my new team blog. Here is the link…


Fall TV schedule


Also check out the September finale and premier dates link below.


It seems we always start off with obituaries. Tony Scott directed Top Gun and a number of other famous action pics committed suicide last week at age 68. Friends and family say he was suffering from terminal cancer but those reports have been denied and/or refuted. He is the brother of director Ridley Scott. Also we mourn the loss of pioneering comedienne Phyllis Diller at age 95. Also veteran actor William Windham died recently. Although he is membered for many famous roles, I think one of my favorites was a little half-hour religious video that I often showing my Scripture classes at Saint Gabriel. It was titled “Jesus BC”. It depicts God the father, God the son, and God the Holy Spirit standing around in heaven deciding what to do about those crazy creations of theirs called human beings. Windham played God the father. They decide to send the son named “Chris” (Tim Matheson) down to earth to redeem humanity. Also Ron Palillo a.k.a. Arnold Horshack of Welcome Back Kotter died of a heart attack at age 63. Also famous film critic Judith Crist has died at age 90. And Mel Stuart director of the original Willy Wonka has died at 83. He directed 180 films.
