Last night, I heard some troubling news. Meesh told me that Ricardo Montalban had passed away. I was devastated. He will always be the host of Fantasy Island to me, and I loved every single episode! I will also always remember him for the role of Khan in Star Trek. There was nothing quite like Khan in the original series and then when he reprised his role in the second Star Trek movie I was ecstatic! Nothing fills me with energy inside as the scene with Kirk yelling “Khaaaaaan!”
He will be missed.
In more sad news, I heard from Insomnic that Patrick McGoohan, star of acclaimed show, “The Prisoner” also passed away. I will always love his work as Number 6 in that show. He really made the show work, and I loved it. This was a time when they really made good tv shows. He will be missed as well. Video after the bump.
And in more entertainment news, I’m looking forward to watching the show The Beast, which premieres tonight on A&E. I have to admit that I’m probably more excited to see that Patrick Swayze is doing some work. Even with his cancer, he is still moving on and working and well, it’s really an inspiration to me. I have to admit he does look a lot different than he has in the past, but he’s still one of my favorite actors and I’ll never waver as his fan. I still remember Road House.
