Pic of the Day: “Fire Man” revisited

Our pic today is another from “Fire Man,” the episode of The Greatest American Hero that first aired on May 6, 1981. Crooked auto yard owner Cameron is laying down the law to our hero (William Katt).

Fire Man - 1981

This was the first of two episodes of this enjoyable superhero series in which Timothy appears. I must say I am digging his eyebrows here. Leave it to Tim to always try to make his characters stand out, in whatever way he could.

Video of the Week: “Fire Man”

Our video this week is the first of two episodes of The Greatest American Hero in which Timothy appears. It’s “Fire Man,” and it was first broadcast on May 6, 1981. He portrays crooked auto yard manager Cameron, a fellow with a nasty disposition and interesting eyebrows. He first appears at about the 19 minute mark.

Again, it’s Hulu, so I apologize in advance for the ads. As I believe I’ve mentioned before, this episode was directed by Gabrielle Beaumont, who holds the distinction of being the first female director in the Star Trek franchise. Engage!

Pic of the Day: “The Resurrection of Carlini” revisited

Today’s pic is yet another from “The Resurrection of Carlini,” the episode of The Greatest American Hero that was first aired on November 19, 1982. Timothy is Blanchard, the slightly unhinged assistant of the late great magician Carlini.

This rather silly but enjoyable series has been out on DVD for quite some time, so check out this episode and the other one Tim appears in, “Fire Man” (5.6.81).

We close the week with another look at Cameron, the under-handed auto yard operator from “Fire Man,” the episode of The Greatest American Hero that first graced television screens on May 6, 1981. Garage doors are opening and closing all by themselves and Cameron is totally flummoxed.

This and the other episode of the series Timothy appears in, “The Resurrection of Carlini” (11.19.82), are both available on DVD and on Amazon Instant Video, so check ’em out today!

Video of the Week: “Fire Man”

This week’s video is an excerpt from “Fire Man,” the episode of The Greatest American Hero that was first broadcast on May 6,1981. Timothy is shady auto yard proprietor Cameron, who takes great pleasure in throwing our hero (William Katt) off his property.

Tim appears in part 3 as well, so don’t miss! Sorry about the Portuguese subtitles (I really want to learn that language someday). It’s worth noting that this episode was directed by Gabrielle Beaumont, the first female director in the Star Trek universe.

Sorry I missed  yesterday! I think posting will be going to almost every day for a while, as work on the book is starting to take up more of my time these days (woo-hoo!). But for today, we take another look at “Fire Man,” the episode of The Greatest American Hero that first aired on May 6, 1981. Shady auto yard operator Cameron and his sidekick are skeptical of the motives behind the appearance of a nosy Ralph Hanley (William Katt).

They are about to rather forcefully remove Hanley from the premises, but he will be back (wearing red tights). Timothy made another memorable appearance on Hero the following year in the episode “The Resurrection of Carlini” (11/19/82).

It’s time for another look at Tim in The Greatest American Hero episode “Fire Man,” first airing on May 6, 1981. Garage doors are closing and drawers are opening all by themselves! And suddenly this guy shows up again, in a ridiculous red suit! He wasn’t there a second ago! What is going on??

Greatest American Hero 1981

Yet another example of Timothy making the most out of one scene. You spend the rest of the episode hoping he shows up again, which of course he doesn’t. It’s still worth a look, though.
