Cassandra Wigs (I've actually seen a shop with this name in whacky old RL).

I can imagine Julia retired from Wyndcliffe in her Sixties opening a Head Shop over which she presides in purple yarn vests with red Chinese chopstickers in her hair.   I mean, with all those sedatives she was practically running a head shop in everything but name out of her bedroom in the Wood.

Current Talk '06 II / No Hellman's for Mrs J
« on: October 05, 2006, 03:36:27 PM »
I was completely puzzled by today's appearance of the floating jar of mayo (at first I thought it might be a jar of "Fluff") here on the boards, until I viewed the daily slide show and realized that today is the anniversary of Mrs Johnson's epic roast beef sandwich encounter in the Collinsport Inn.

"Is the mayonnaise FRESH?  I ALWAYS make my own!"

Perhaps tomorrow we'll have the dime with which Mrs J tipped Maggie Evans after her meal.  "There's ten cents for your trouble, my dear.  You've been very kind.  Now don't spend it all in one place!"  KLS is priceless in that scene--and Clarice deserved an Emmy!

Buzz!  Our Libraries are TWINS!  *giggles*

I don't have the original CD of DS 1, though--I have the Rhino reissue with the edited Ron Barry interviews.  Which one had the Selby interview?  I think that was the Varese Sarabande one?

Glorioski!  I somehow missed the announcement that the boxed set of Cobert's DS music is going to be a bloody "members only" item.  Shite!

Glad I checked this thread again, though.  I'd just as soon know. At least I do have all the previously existing releases which must have 99 percent of all the music ever used on the show...

Current Talk '06 II / Re: Why dont people like Adam?
« on: October 02, 2006, 04:30:10 PM »
Warts and all, the Adam and Eve storyline contains many of my absolute favorite episodes of DS.  In particular, the confrontation scenes between Nicholas Blair and Julia are exceptionally well written and brilliantly played.  In one of these scenes Blair actually has the line, "Doctor, I think you've been reading too many gothic novels"--a very large wink from the writers to themselves and it never fails to make me fall about.

There's also all the wonderful stuff with Stokes from this period--again, I love his line on the phone to Carolyn in one high-tension moment:  "Miss Stoddard, are you much given to melodrama?  No, don't answer that; I'll answer it for myself shortly."  Brilliant!

I agree that Adam's scenes in the later part of the storyline become very one-note, whiny, repetitive and dull, but that's no fault of the actor.  I think that every storyline has scenes of this sort.  I personally find the scenes of Vicki's trial in 1795 unwatchably tedious.

DDD just reduced the prices (or I just noticed the reduction) on their DS sets to around 36 bucks per set.  I wonder if this is just for the H'ween season or if this is the new price?  It's not being billed as one of their sales, so far as I can tell.

Current Talk '06 II / Re: James Hall (the 1st Willie Loomis)
« on: September 27, 2006, 10:44:55 PM »
James was no relation to Sam or Grayson.  I believe KLS did say that he was somebody she met in acting classes.  She definitely reported that he was fired because of a drinking problem.

While I do find an edgy intrigue in Hall's performance in the role, I definitely agree with the majority that the day John Karlen was hired to play Willie was one of the best days in DS history!

Ah, dear Stanley Adams.  I'll never forget his portrayal of a giant talking carrot who ruled "the Vegetable Planet" in one of the most surreal (and to my taste, inspired) episodes of Lost in Space.

I very vaguely remember watching the Norless tapes way back when.  I think the evil demon in that one is named, strangely, after Sargon of Agade, an ancient Mesopotamian ruler!

I think my favorite Maggie scenes ever are when she's hooking Joe in the 1966 storyline.  She gets those devious little looks on her face whenever Joe's back is turned, rattles off a spree of naturical slang without turning a hair, shows him what having a girl who's genuinely interested in him is like, yet remains spirited and perky throughout.  I'm really sorry the character got slammed into permanent victim mode once Barn hit town.

Rainingwolf, Maggie's blonde phase only lasted for the first couple weeks of the show.

Great review!  I love the photo chosen for the article on the web version.  Was the same one used for the print paper?

Let sales ring out merrily over autumn skies!
