This show portrayed a certain former Bonanza actor as the chief of a fire station working alongside his family of firefighters. Which show is this?

Battlestar Galactica (the original)?


Nope, think 1980's drama. Not sci-fi.

Code Red is correct!!! Lorne Greene is the Bonanza actor. Yay for Nutty Goodness!!

That was the show that taught me not to stick things in electrical sockets as a kid.

This show starred a certain former Bonanza actor in a spinoff of a show based on a movie that was based on a book. As a spinoff it was a rarity, since the show was based on a character from the original show, but the character was played by an actor who was not in the original show.

1) This 1964 episode of a very popular show had two actors working together who only a few year later, went on to lifetime fame for another paired role.

What OTHER actor of that episode went on to fame as well, as, in effect, an easily befuddled Pointy Haired Boss....decades before Scott Adams came up with the term...

Hint: all three shows involved weapons.


2) This 1960ish show's theme song was about the already dead main character, and doing without him.
{and you thought Desperate Housewives came up with the concept...Ha!}

Took me a while looking through the Internet Movie Database, but I think I have it.

Is it Werner Klemperer? (Klink from Hogan's Heroes).

He was on an episode of "The Man From Uncle" along with Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner (Star Trek).

The best answer I can come up with is "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" on ABC.

I saw something amusing on a DVD the other day, and realised it would make a good quiz.
Which show had a vampire, a super-powered mutant, and two Jimmy Olsens riding in the same car? It's the mutant's car if that helps.
