If "Glenn A.Larson" says nothing to you, you're not old enough....


Sadly he passed away at age 77:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/glen-a-larson-dead-battlestar-748879

He was writer/producer of

"Six Million dollar man" (De man van 6 miljoen in Dutch :))
Fall Guy
Knight Rider
Battlestar Galactica
Magnum P.I.

It's just a name that's been printed in my memory from watching most of these series I guess.....anyway....a legend !

Sad News.
Fall Guy was broadcasted in Germany in the Mid-80ties. It was german-dubbed, of course: 'Ein Colt für alle Fälle'  Liked it very much.

Fall Guy was a favorite show of mine!!! I really liked it as a kid. He had a bad ass truck. Stuntmen were cool in the 80s.

Never heard of this guy that died, though.

I think the Fall Guy was never aired in The Netherlands....I just had a look on YouTube and don't remmebr it. All the other series mentioned were aired here.

Looks like a mix of James Bond and The Dukes of Hazzard....:)

Sad to hear, a well known name to me. I liked Fall Guy very much and YES, Heather Thomas was soooo hot  ::)

From those series I watched Fall Guy, Battlestar Galactica and Magnum. I didn't like 6 Mio $ man and I hated Knight Rider.
