Ten random things: October 1

Ten Stephen J. Cannell TV series:

  1. Stone
  2. Baa Baa Black Sheep
  3. Sonny Spoon
  4. Wiseguy
  5. The Hat Squad
  6. Tenspeed and Brown Shoe
  7. Toma
  8. Profit
  9. Palace Guard
  10. Renegade

Stephen J. Cannell passed away yesterday at the age of 69. I really liked The Rockford Files, but aside from that I wasn't really a fan of any of his TV shows. The same is true of his novels; I read a couple of them, and they were good for the kind of thing they were, but they weren't the kind of thing I really enjoy reading. Nevertheless, the man was a giant in the industry, and I have to admit that even if his shows often weren't my cup of tea, he had a rare talent for knowing what people wanted to see. He'll be missed.
