    It’s probably not wise to go giving the networks such ideas–the shows they come up with on their own are quite frightening enough. Last night they were advertising a show in which they walled off a neighborhood, turned off vital utilities, and waited to see what happened.

    Hey, that was MY neighborhood that was walled off. You mean that people are now going to FILM what goes on? Well, there goes the backyard Cow Bingo.

    Of all Dr. Boli’s continuing features. this is possibly the one I love most. I wonder whether Dr. Boli is aware that someone: thought that Alexander the Great would be a good subject for a TV series; succeeded in getting a pilot made (though not aired until years later); and cast WILLIAM SHATNER as Alexander.

    • Caren says:

      I just had a sudden vision of Alexander the Great selling Priceline.

      • Greybeard says:

        Alexander’s sidekick was Adam West as Cleander. What a pair, Batman and Captain Kirk. They are probably both relieved that this tape hasn’t surfaced for a few decades. Another reminder to all aspiring actors to be careful what roles you accept on the way up the ladder to stardom.
