Oh, sad... Sandra from Space 1999 died... On the anniversary of the moon's breakaway!

Quote
We are sad to learn of the passing yesterday of actress Zienia Merton, most known for her role as Analyst Sandra Benes in Space: 1999, per her publicist and friend Barry Langford. Merton also appeared in an early episode of Doctor Who, “Marco Polo”, which is unfortunately one of the remaining “lost” episodes.

Anyone who follows me knows I was a big fan of Space: 1999, and there was something about Merton’s character that despite the relatively minor role was memorable, and was one of the few carried into the severely retooled second season of the show. And she even took part in the fan-produced “conclusion” of the series, “Message From Moonbase Alpha”, which featured her alone in a recorded message to Earth telling that the crew of Moonbase Alpha were finally forced to abandon the moonbase and make a new life on a planet.

And the irony of the date of Merton’s passing was not lost on me…September 13th, 2018 – 19 years after the moon was blasted out of orbit…

Burt Reynolds at 82.

Which for him is probably a hell of a run, eh? That guy lived the life.

Yeah, I'm surprised he made it that long!

Last month saw Adrian Cronauer die... So I rewatched Good Morning Vietnam last night. It doesn't hold up. In fact, it's almost insulting the way they treat the Vietnamese. A total white man's burden movie.

Ellison...

Sad, but.... He's been "old and crazy" for a very long time. And I'm still in Bourdain shock.

Wow...Bourdain. Which upsets me. He's been inspirational to me for a long time.

Margot Kidder.

RC texted me last night and said he thought she was already dead -- now the running joke for everyone in this thread!

I'm reminded, though, that I constantly confused Kidder with Karen Allen.

I thought we dead already.

We lost Roger Moore as well today. I thought he was also already dead.

Yeah, all these 570 year old lizards are dying. There must be a power struggle going on at the Illuminati compound.
