Monster of the Day #1116

Now that’s how you do a painting, Andrew Wyeth!

    The Residents are huge in Japan.

  • Flangepart

    “Hi. You folks have any Visine on ya, by chance?”

  • Gamera977

    Alien by Goodyear…

    So-so episode but then again what red-blooded guy wouldn’t jump at the chance to protect the lovely Hazel Court?

  • CaptNemo

    “Honey, I think that guy is watching us.”

  • bgbear_rnh

    Bert I. Gordon calls his lawyer.

  • The Rev.

    I remember seeing this one for the first time a few years ago and being shocked to find the male lead was the guy that played Adam Chance in Agent for H.A.R.M..
    The episode itself is pretty good, but I love the ending. It’s silly, but in a good way. Kind of a nice counter-point to The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street.

  • Gamera977

    Mark Richman was in only two episodes of ‘The Outer Limits’ and this one ‘Twilight Zone’ (I had to check the IMDB to be sure) but for some reason I really associate him with both shows.

  • SteveWD

    ‘The Fear’. Not one of the best episodes, but for some reason I can remember exactly the first time I saw it. I was about 10 years old and it was a late Friday night after we had been to my brothers high school football game. I remember coming home, getting a snack, watching Twilight Zone (it was probably on right after the late local news) and it was this episode. That was 30+ years ago, so this episode must have had some sort of impact.

  • Rock Baker

    It had lots of moody little moments that really made it stand out, I thought. Not the least of which was the huge fingerprint on the side of the car.

  • Rock Baker

    Always liked Mark Richman, but it seems he played the hero far too few times. He could play a pretty good heavy, of course, but I always liked him as the hero. AGENT FOR H.A.R.M. remains one of my favorite spy pictures mostly because of Richman (and Bouchet, and the music, etc…).

  • Flangepart

    And of course, a good MST3K.

  • The Rev.

    “The spaz chop and the pocket wound were just too much for the old man.”
    I also love the whole running bit with them describing Chance doing something mundane and then singing the James Bond theme. “Adam Chance picks up his dry cleaning. Ba-da-DA-DAAAAAAA!!!”

  • The Rev.

    I’m not as familiar with that series as I should be; sure enough, I haven’t seen either episode he was in.
    I don’t know why, but I thought he’d passed away a few years ago. Turns out he’s alive and, as far as I can tell, well. (Sorry, Mr. Richman, should you ever stumble on this!) Looks to have retired in 2011, but man he was in a lot of stuff. He’s also been married to his wife for 52 years, bless ’em.

  • Luke Blanchard

    I think this guy modelled for Odilon Redon. He painted him in THE CYCLOPS and used him in several of his prints.
