Oh, I stand corrected. How ever many there were it was too few. Here's something else I was wrong about...

BEWITCHED: Up until a half an hour ago, I would have sworn the only two men to play Darrin Stephens were Dick York and Dick Sargent, but I just watched a season two episode in which he was played by... Billy Mumy!?

I don't remember if I saw that episode. As I guessed, everyone's favorite mother-in-law, Endora, turns Darrin into a boy as retribution for a slight.

As I've said many times, it's just my luck that the most famous Dar(r)in in TV history was played by a couple of Dicks. Bill Mumy makes me feel better. And I've always got Kolchak.

Lost in time, too, apparently.

"As I guessed, everyone's favorite mother-in-law, Endora, turns Darrin into a boy as retribution for a slight."

Yep! One of the cable stations played a Bewitched marathon Tracy asked me to record. Turns out it was for Mothers' Day, except it aired the Sunday before and every episode features Endora. Now we've got a dozen episodes we're working our way through. m

BONANZA: Tracy and I have resumed watching season four episodes after a lengthy hiatus. (In my solo viewing, I am very nearly through season ten.)

Jeff of Earth-J said:

BONANZA: I've lost track of how many Star Trek actors have appeared on Bonanza. (I like to think of them as ancestors/descendants.) the episode I watched today had both "Veena" (from "The Cage") and "Finnegan" (from "Shore Leave"). I wasn't too surprised to see Ricardo Montalban in one of the second season episodes, but I was very much surprised to see Madlyn Rhue ("Lt. McGivers") in the same episode cast as his wife!

The above post (December 17) was the last time I mentioned Star Trek actors appearing on Bonanza. I thought it noteworthy that both Khan and his wife appeared in the same episode of Bonanza... as husband and wife. The season four episode "The Decision" is noteworthy as well as it features two Star Trek doctors, DeForest Kelley and John Hoyt, in the same episode... and De Kelly plays a doctor.

BONANZA: I've finished with season 10 and moved on to 11. In addition to guest-stars from Star Trek, notables from the last few episodes of the tenth season include Dana Elcar (Dark Dhadows) and Larry Linville (M*A*S*H). 

THE RIFLEMAN: A notable guest-star from a second season episode I just watched is Don Grady (My Three Sons). 

THE MANDALORIAN: We subscribed to Disney+ for the express purpose of watching WandaVision. Tracy assured me there were other Disney shows worth watching, but so far (until last night) we have watched only Return to Witch Mountain. We asked the biggest Star Wars fan we know (No, not him. Bigger.) if it was worth watching. He said yes, but suggested we watch seven seasons of The Clone Wars first for context. We decided to ignore that advice and watched the first two episodes of The Mandalorian last night. 

So far, so good. What it reminds me of most so far is Lone Wolf & Cub

Jon Favreau mentions the influence of Lone Wolf and Cub in the "Making Of" feature.

For those who are interested, HBOmax has six Lone Wolf and Cub movies.

Six LW&C movies? I may have to look into that. (I have only five on VHS.)

Further Mandalorian sources noted: various spaghetti westerns, Nexus (the Gucci Assassins), Radar Men from the Moon, and The Magnificent Seven

These are the six on HBOmax:

Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance (1972)
Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart at the River Styx (1972)
Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in Peril (1972)
Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart in the Land of Demons (1973)
Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades (1972)
Lone Wolf and Cub: White Heaven in Hell (1974)
