Death comes in threes, as we all know. The Wild Wild West star is dead at 84. RIP! CryCryCryCry 
I have multiple episodes of his short-lived 1987 TV series 'High Mountain Rangers' on tape. It also starred his two sons. Too short-lived in my opinion...with plenty of family bonding.

And don't forget his leading role as real life WWII USMC fighter pilot Pappy Boyington in the late 1970's series Baa Baa Black Sheep 

 

In the cast photo below, you might recognize a couple of guys who went on to stardom in other roles...



...including Larry Manetti (on RC's right) who played Magnum's buddy Rick on Magnum P.I., and John Larroquette (directly behind RC) who infamously played prosecuting attorney Dan Fielding on Night Court.

Nobody ever had the balls to knock the battery off his shoulder.


RIP Robert Conrad.

John Larroquette was on Baa Baa Black Sheep? Didn't know that.
My mistake. I was confusing him with John Ratzenberger in this post. Yes, LARROQUETTE had his own sitcom for a couple of years, The John Larroquette Show on NBC. And he was on Night Court...

Gah! What happens when you are tired Confused

Of course I knew him from the Cheers reruns and the first two Toy Story's in my childhood voicing Hamm the Piggy Bank.
I think you're confusing John Larroquette with his Night Court co-star (the late) Harry Anderson, who did a few episodes of Cheers. 

Larroquette was never on Cheers.

I do get that channel. Thumbs Up

My "problem" is that my antenna picks up so many free channels, I can't watch them all!!!! Embarrassed

I re-scanned recently and found about three or four new ones. LOL

I'm gonna order a new, more powerful signal amplifier in a couple of weeks, so who knows, I might be picking up even more.

Right now I get 47 watchable (non-religious/non-Hispanic) channels after those unwatchable are deleted from the channel surfing lineup.
