Penny Marshall


I was saddened to hear Penny Marshall has passed away.  I enjoyed Laverne and Shirley when I was a kid.



Adam West


I was sorry to hear about Adam West’s passing.  I loved the Batman show from the 60s when I was a kid.  Batman was campy by today’s standards, but the show was kid friendly and better than some of the more recent shows.  RIP.

Leonard Nimoy, known best for his portrayal of Spock in the original Star Trek series, died this morning at his home in Bel Air, Los Angeles. He was 83. His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, announced that his death came at the grip of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Robin Williams


I was very sad to hear about Robin Williams’ passing.  He was such a talented and funny person.

I loved Mork & Mindy when I was a kid.


I also loved:


Good Morning Vietnam




Mrs. Doubtfire


The voice of Genie in Aladdin.

He had some other great roles too, but these are my favorites.  He did an excellent job in his more serious roles also i.e. Good Will Hunting and the Law and Order: SVU episode  “Authority”.  He will be missed.
