1... 2... who's going to be 3?

Sad to see more and more people that I grew up with (watching them on TV, anyway) passing to the Great Beyond...

Darren McGavin will always be the one and only Carl Kolchak. That was one of those times when the actor fit the role like a glove.

Sci-Fi just ran some episodes a week or two ago, but I hope they run them again in honor of this great actor.

And of course he was Ralphie's dad in A Christmas Story... "'Frah-gee-lay'... must be Italian." Classic.

Dude! The dad from "A Christmas Story"! At least he'll live on every year in that respect.
