Judge Sotomayor doesn't know her TV law history

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jul 16th 2009 12:04PM
Perry MasonIf you're one of the few remaining dissenters who doesn't think Sonia Sotormayor is qualified to serve on the nation's highest ranking court, don't blame President Obama. Don't blame any of her law professors or mentors. Don't even blame the left wing media.

Blame Perry Mason.

The Supreme Court nominee said before the Senate and the Judiciary Committee that the old Perry Mason show inspired her to seek a life in upholding the law.

ReaperHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I sometimes enjoy watching Judge Judy, but it's one of those shows that I can't possibly imagine owning the DVDs. Once is enough for me. But if you're really into the show, there's a 2-Pack set being released this week.

But I have to get the Get Smart DVDs at some point. That's the only show being released that I have any interest in.

  • The Cleaner - Season 1
  • Corner Gas - Season 6
  • Danny Phantom - Season 3
  • Father Knows Best - Season 3
  • Get Smart - Season 3

New TV on DVD releases this week

Jake and the Fatman DVDHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

For some reason, I didn't know that Jake and the Fatman was out on DVD (or I knew at one point and just forgot). Is this something I want on DVD? I'm tempted, because it's a show that you'll probably never see in syndication again. It's probably way down on my list though. Password might be fun. I gotta start buying these game show releases at some point.

  • Cannon - Season 1, Vol. 2
  • Curious George - Leads the Band and Other Musical Mayhem
  • Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist - Best Of
  • Frost/Nixon - The Original Watergate Interviews

  • Law and Order - Season 6
  • Metalocalypse - Season 2
  • Mythbusters - Big Blasts
  • Password - Best Of

Justice League DVDHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

There's actually nothing on this list I want to buy. I'm not into Hannah Montana, I've never seen an episode of Bleach, I wasn't a big Married with Children fan, and I haven't bought any previous seasons of Perry Mason, so I might actually save some money this week.

I like Chelsea Handler though. Not sure if it's worth buying Girls Behaving Badly just for her.

  • Bleach - Season 2
  • Camp Rock - Extended Rock Star Edition
  • Dexter - Season 2
  • Galaxy Rangers - Vol. 2

Jeremy Slate dead at 80

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 25th 2006 6:31PM

Jeremy SlateVeteran character actor Jeremy Slate - you might not know the name but you definitely know the face - died of complications from throat surgery last week in Los Angeles.

Slate was known for his movie roles in Girls! Girls! Girls!, Lawnmower Man, and Hell's Angels '69, but he was even more known for the massive amount of work he did on the small screen, starting in the late '50s. Slate was a regular on the 1960 series The Aquanauts, and had guest roles on many shows, including Route 66, Perry Mason, Dr. Kildare, Naked City, Have Gun, Will Travel, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Mr. Lucky, The Untouchables, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Bewitched, Combat, Tarzan, Bonanza, Ironside, Mission: Impossible, Mannix, Wonder Woman, The Wonderful World of Disney, and many others. Most recently he guest-starred on an episode of My Name Is Earl.

I remember him most from his two soap roles: he played Chuck Wilson, Asa's assistant, on One Life To Live for many years, and had a short-lived role as songwriter Locke Walls on Guiding Light in the mid-80s (he was involved with Alexandra Spaulding and her son Nick, if I'm not mistaken).

Arthur Franz dead at 86

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 20th 2006 8:30AM
Arthur FranzI guess this one would go in the "I thought he died years ago" category.

Franz was a character actor for several decades, appearing in such movies as Sands of Iwo Jima, Hellcats of the Navy, The Caine Mutiny (as the narrator), Invaders From Mars, and Abbott and Costello Meet The Invisible Man. But he was also a familiar face on the small screen too, appearing in everything from Perry Mason, Mission: Impossible, McCloud and Rawhide to Mod Squad, The Waltons, Mannix, and The FBI.

Franz died Saturday in California of emphysema and pneumonia.
