It's not that Stan Lee was a "I thought he was already dead" guy, but there was serious drama going on with his end of days that makes his death almost a relief.

William Goldman actually hit me a bit harder...

Wow...never knew that about Lee!

Goldman was in the "I thought he was dead" category. Princess Bride is 50 years old!

Oof. Not quite an obit but Julie Strain is dying.

Man... I feel like we should call a spade a spade here. It's the 35 years of heavy use of whiskey and barbiturates.

Spongebob guy died. Not sure why that's such huge news, though!

We were just talking about Laverne and Shirley... It was weirdly in the ether this last week.

Luke Perry dying is kind of sobering.

Yeah, we had a long talk about it last night. We're just reaching that age where anything goes right. I hope I just keel over with a beer in front of me at least.

Really sad. Though when you think about it, someone that tall living that long is something of an amazing run.

Avon died!

Quote
Just got work that actor Paul Darrow, best known for the role of Kerr Avon in BBC sci-fi series Blake’s 7, passed away after a short illness.

The actor made many appearances on British TV over 5 decades, including most recently a recurring role on Law & Order: UK, as well as many stage appearances, but the role he is most associated with is the computer expert and thief who became the reluctant rebel in Roj Blake’s resistance against the oppressive Federation. He was always looking to score some quick money, but would always do the right thing in the end.

Darrow was always a big proponent of the show and worked hard to try and bring the show back, going as far as to purchasing the rights to the show back in 2003 from the estate of creator Terry Nation. While any sort of reboot remains in the depths of Development Hell, the loss of such a champion of the show is certainly a blow, but perhaps might finally provide the impetus to get a new version off the ground.
