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: “The Resurrection of Carlini”

Our video this week is a full-length episode of The Greatest American Hero, “The Resurrection of Carlini”. It was first broadcast on November 19, 1982. Timothy is great as Blanchard, the slightly deranged assistant of the late great magician Carlini.

Again, it’s Hulu, so sorry about the ads. Enjoy!

Today we take another look at Blanchard, the unhinged magician’s assistant of “The Resurrection of Carlini,” the episode of The Greatest American Hero that first aired on November 19, 1982. He is being questioned by the cops, and is, predictably, not being very forthcoming.

Directing this episode was veteran television producer and director Arnold Laven, one of the co-founders of the Levy-Gardner-Laven production company. He produced Tim’s episode of The Big Valley, “Teacher of Outlaws” (2.2.66), directed by Michael Ritchie.

 

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!

Video of the Week: “The Resurrection of Carlini”

Thanks once again to the fine folks at Hulu, our video of the week is the full-length episode of The Greatest American Hero known as “The Resurrection of Carlini.” It was first broadcast on November 19, 1982. Timothy is super-great as Blanchard, the former magician’s assistant who has a tenuous grasp on reality.

Also appearing here is the great Ferdy Mayne, unforgettable as Count von Krolock in Roman Polanski‘s The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967). He has also apparently inspired a rock band.

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.

Fire Man - 1981

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!
